Marvin Jones has made it clear that he wants to test free agency. Here are five players who Cincinnati could replace him with in free agency.

Marvin Jones has been the Cincinnati Bengals’ signature deep threat alongside A.J. Green and has helped the Bengals offense become one of the best in football. Hauling in bombs from franchise quarterback Andy Dalton, Jones has quietly emerged as one of the NFL’s top three free agent wide receivers.

Alshon Jeffery and Travis Benjamin, the only two players who are regarded higher than Jones on the free agent market, both look set to re-sign with their current teams, so Jones could actually be the top free agent pass-catcher on the market come March.

If Benjamin were to somehow hit the open market, he would be a perfect option for the Bengals–at the right price, of course. And given that the Cincinnati Bengals like to draft and develop rather than cash out in free agency, the strategy of picking up a free agent receiver seems highly unlikely.

Still, there are plenty of solid pass-catchers on the market. If the Bengals can somehow convince a player to sign a bargain deal, something they’re plenty capable of doing, Cincinnati could haul in a huge steal in free agency.

With that, let’s take a look at five guys who could replace Marvin Jones (or Mohamed Sanu) in free agency if either (or both) of the two players walk.
