"With Andrew Hawkins gone to Cleveland in free agency, I bet he gets a lot of looks," La Canfora wrote of Sanu. "[Quarterback Andy] Dalton seems to like throwing to him."
Sanu caught 47 passes for 455 yards and two touchdowns last season.
"Mo's a good football player," Urban said. "I asked too much of him last year. I spread him thin. It's sort of the old thing where too much of a good thing is just as good as not enough. That's a shame on me."
Sanu finished 2013 with 47 catches for 455 yards and two touchdowns. He will open this season as the No. 3 receiver behind A.J. Green and Marvin Jones.
Sanu could be ticketed for a jack-of-all-trades role in the Bengals offense, the team website suggests. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has done good things with versatile players before and could lean on Sanu to be more than a traditional receiver.
"He's got me doing some stuff," a grinning Sanu said. "I love it. I'm embracing it and I'm going to do everything that I can to make sure that I'm the best at it. ... I'm uncommon because I can do a lot of different things and play a lot of different positions. I have a lot of different talents, but it's up to me to show it."
After catching 10 touchdown passes last season,
Jones caught 51 passes for 712 yards and 10 scores, while Sanu had 47 grabs for 455 yards and two touchdowns last year.
