Two-Tight End Offense Could Be Key For Bengals In 2016

While the Cincinnati Bengals may have had to deal with the loss of some significant resources along the offensive side of the ball during the course of this offseason—in particular, wide receivers Marvin Jones and Mohammed Sanu, and offensive coordinator Hue Jackson—their cupboard is far from bare.
