It’s the talk of the off season so far. The question of, which one do the Bengals sign? Do they sign both? Do they sign either one of them? What do they do if they can’t?

I’m more than sure every writer here at Stripe Hype has given a few thoughts about who will line up along with A.J. Green next year at Wideout. Even yesterday, one of our editors, Dylan Testin, wrote about the potential of newly released Roddy White being a potential fit for the Bengals.
This week on Men in Stripes, Matthew and I discussed the potential possibility of Cleveland Browns star Travis Benjamin being a potential fit with the possible losses the team will have to deal with at wide receiver. This is a thought I literally came up with on the show, but the more I thought about it, the more I really liked the prospect of Travis Benjamin coming to Cincinnati.
Now that Alshon Jeffrey is going back to Chicago, Travis Benjamin and Marvin Jones have moved up into the top free agent targets at their respected position. If the Bengals lose Jones or Sanu, Benjamin is a potential player you can plug into one of those spots.
This season through the quarterback carousel of Josh McCown, Johnny Manziel, and Austin Davis, Travis Benjamin managed to put together a season where he caught 68 passes for 966 yards and 5 Touchdowns. To go along with that, he also had a punt return he brought back for a touchdown for the Browns this year as well.
Benjamin has previously been linked to teams like the Atlanta Falcons and is sure to get a lot of attention coming into free agency, but with the possible revamp at the wideout position and the possibility that the Bengals fill that need in the first round of the draft, why not take a look at a speedster who can take the top off a defense on any play?
