What will become of Mohamed Sanu?

The Cincinnati Bengals know a thing or two about drafting top talent at the wide receiver position. In his rookie season Mohamed Sanu showed his versatility and emerged as a red-zone threat when he started to come on late in the 2012 season before suffering a stress fracture during practice. Before the injury Sanu had four touchdown catches in the past three weeks and looked...

Bengals have turned into model of NFL stability

Losing season after losing season, they were the same old Bungles. Changed quarterbacks every couple of years. Wasted high draft picks on lower-talented players. Signed players with a lot of baggage and wound up making excuses for their arrests. Fired the coach and started the cycle all over again. Nobody could argue when one television commentator referred to them as the NFL&...

Bengals need receiver to complement A.J. Green

As the Bengals get set to begin their stretch run for the second straight year in San Diego, there are a number of familiar themes that have carried over. One of the most notable is which receiver after A.J. Green will break through. At the beginning of the season, many thought it would be Mohamed Sanu, but he has struggled a bit.

Fantasy: Searching for the next breakout receiver

While writing for Sports Illustrated in 2009, I astutely predicted that Vikings wideout Sidney Rice coming off a 15-catch debacle in 2008 would amass 1,150 receiving yards and seven TDs with Sage Rosenfels as his starting quarterback. Of course, that was before Brett Favre officially entered the purple picture and helped Rice tally 83 catches for 1,312 yards and eight touchdowns...

Cincinnati Bengal Fans: Don't Forget About WR Mohamed Sanu

At the time of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals had a lot of holes to fill. We can look back now, with amazement, at how successful the team has been at accomplishing this task. The process of building this team had clearly started long before that draft, but when draft day rolled around, the Bengals used the number four overall pick to select A.
