Bengals Sign Brandon LaFell


The former wide receiver for the New England Patriots has signed on with the Cincinnati Bengals. He only played in 11 games last season but was quite efficient in games he played. This probably had a lot to do with having Tom Brady as his quarterback. He averaged nearly 14 yards per catch and accumulated over 500 yards in 11 games. He was targeted only 74 times due in part by the Patriots having a plethora of receivers to choose from. When you are starting opposite Danny Amendola, Gronk, and Julian Edelman it tends to be touch to get targets. He was the 4th option on a team that tends to run 4-5 receivers per play so he was out on the field quite a bit whenever he played. This was the first season he did not have a receiving touchdown.

Games Played 11
Receptions 37
Targets 74
Yards 515
Average 13.9
Longest 54 Yards

He still has quite a bit in the tank from what we can see and it will be interesting to see how he does with Andy Dalton has his quarterback.  One can probably guess that he will have a big season.
