Wide receiver Greg Little has signed a one-year deal with the Bengals, a source has told Pro Football Talk. Little, who was cut by Cincinnati in late February, caught just six passes for 69 yards last season after a disappointing three-year stint with Cleveland.
The Bengals have released defensive end Robert Geathers and wide receiver Greg Little, the team announced Friday. Geathers played all 16 games with the team in 2014, totaling 21 tackles with one sack and one interception. In his 11-year career in Cincinnati, Geathers has totaled 325 tackles with 34 sacks and three interceptions. Little signed on with the Bengals halfway through the 2014 season, playing in six games, totaling six catches for 69 yards.
The Bengals wide receivers and tight ends combined for just seven catches and 75 yards in the team's 26-10 Wild Card loss to the Colts, with wide receiver Mohamed Sanu recording three catches for 31 yards. With top wideout A.J. Green inactive Sunday, Sanu was the only Bengals receiver to make a catch in the game, racking up his three receptions on seven targets. Brandon Tate was targeted five times, Cobi Hamilton saw two targets and Greg Little was targeted once, but none of the three managed to record a catch. Tight end Kevin Brock drew the start in place of Jermaine Gresham and caught just one pass for seven years. Rookie tight end Ryan Hewitt caught three of his five targets for 37 yards. Nobody on the Bengals was able to crack 50 receiving yards, with running back Giovani Bernard leading the way with 46 yards on eight receptions.
The Bengals have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 17 matchup with the Steelers: cornerback Terence Newman (illness), wide receivers James Wright (knee) and Greg Little, quarterback AJ McCarron , guard T.J. Johnson, tackle Tanner Hawkinson and defensive tackle Devon Still. Newman and Wright were both listed as questionable to play in the regular-season finale. The team will have four other questionables available to play against the Steelers. Cincinnat is a 3 1/2-point underdog in Pittsburgh in Week 17.
The Bengals ruled these players inactive for Monday's game against the Broncos: quarterback AJ McCarron (illness), defensive back Chris Lewis-Harris, linebacker Emmanuel Lamu (hamstring), wideouts Greg Little and James Wright (knee), and offensive linemen Devon Still and Tanner Hawkinson.
