The former Browns star signed with Cincinnati last season when injuries depleted the receiving group. He played in six games and had only six catches for 69 yards. He didn't catch a pass during a first-round playoff loss at Indianapolis.
The Bengals waived receiver Cobi Hamilton, a sixth-round pick in 2013 who spent that year and part of last season on the practice squad. They also signed rookie receiver Desmond Lawrence, a free agent from North Carolina A&T. He signed with the Lions and was released in May.
