Bengals' Brandon LaFell: Roster spot seems safe
LaFell, who caught 64 passes for 862 receiving yards and six touchdowns last season, inked a two-year contract to remain with the Bengals in March. Since then, Cincinnati elected to draft speedy wideout John Ross (shoulder) ninth overall, adding another highly valued target to go with Pro Bowler A.J. Green and 2016 second-rounder Tyler Boyd. Despite that competition, the 30-year-old LaFell probably shouldn't be worried about his roster spot, though -- besides his on-field utility and relationship with Green, the Bengals would eat $3 million by releasing him. Nonetheless, given Cincy's notable pass-catching options, including rookie tailback Joe Mixon, it'll be surprising if LaFell approaches his totals from a year ago.
