The Cincinnati Bengals arguably have one of the best receiving corps in the National Football League, with A.J Green, Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu all catching passes.

It's one of the only spots on the Bengals that is actually perfect - Lord knows they need a quarterback who can actually win in the playoffs - so it has come as a surprise that they have actually brought in a new wideout.

According to a report from ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Bengals have completed a one-year deal for former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore.

Jackson was the head coach in Oakland when Moore was a rookie during the 2011 season and the two men will have a chance to work together again this year. Jackson is coming into his second season as the OC of the Bengals and will be hoping to finally take them to the next level, and not fail at the Wildcard round as fans have become accustomed to.

Moore caught 33 passes for 618 yards and five touchdowns while also running for one score that season and he followed that up with seven more touchdown catches the next year. He continued to play a prominent role in the offense in 2013, but drifted into an insignificant role with Oakland last season when Andre Holmes and James Jones stepped up to become rookie quarterback Derek Carr's favorite receivers.

Moore was selected in the 5th round of the 2011 draft by the Bengals out of Tennessee. Over the course of his career he has 142 receptions for 2,169 yards and 17 touchdowns.
