Josh Malone is becoming the forgotten man with all the hype surrounding the Bengals’ offense. Much of the attention this offseason is going toward John Ross, Tyler Eifert, Joe Mixon and the offensive line. Does Malone deserve to be included in all of that?
His stats from last season don’t suggest it at first glance. Only six catches for 63 yards and a touchdown during his rookie year isn’t noteworthy. It doesn’t help that he also played just more than 25 percent of the Bengals offensive snaps last season, which was the fourth most among Bengal receivers.
