The Cincinnati Bengals today re-signed wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher, whom the club had tendered as a restricted free agent for 2014.
Sanzenbacher stood to make $1.4 million under the terms of the team’s tender, but terms of the deal weren’t announced.
Sanzenbacher is a fourth-year NFL player. Sanzenbacher first joined the Bengals late in 2012, and he saw his first Cincinnati action last season, playing in 10 games with one start and catching six passes for 61 yards.
Sanzenbacher played in 21 games for the Chicago Bears over 2011-12 and has career NFL totals of 34 catches for 344 yards and three touchdowns.
“Dane is a player with an instinctive feel for the game,” said Bengals wide receiver coach James Urban, “and he should have the chance for more playing time this year than we were able to find for him last year. He’s got assets that can help make us better.”
In my opinion, I like this move because Dane didn’t really get a lot of playing time last season, and with Andrew Hawkins in Cleveland, he will get a lot more reps and I like him, he’ll be great in the slot.
