With Jerome Simpson's NFL future very much in doubt as he heads into free agency, while facing a felony marijuana trafficking charge (which he pled not guilty to), and Andre Caldwell (who played his best when lined up as an outside receiver, not in the slot) also entering free agency, the Cincinnati Bengals will be tasked with finding someone that can help limit the coverages against A.J. Green and give quarterback Andy Dalton a viable threat, especially in undercoverage.

Names have been thrown around, like Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson and New Orleans wide receivers Robert Meachem and Marques Colston.

Pro Football Focus ranked their best wide receivers that will be free agents next month. Some of the names are unlikely to ever see free agency, like New England wide receiver Wes Welker, Pittsburgh's Mike Wallace but you also have names like San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson and Kansas City's Dwayne Bowe.
