Rand Getlin of NFL Media reports that the Bengals have signed veteran WR Greg Little to a contract following his workout on Thursday.

  • Jason La Canfora reports that Little receives a one-year contract for the Bengals.

Little was one of three free agents to work out for the Bengals including David Nelson and Santonio Holmes.

Cincinnati also signed rookie WR Desmond Lawrence to a contract, so they’re clearly bolstering their receiver depth.

Little, 26, is a former second round pick of the Browns back in 2011. He spent three season in Cleveland before he was cut and later claimed off of waivers by the Raiders. The Bengals would later take a shot on him in October of last year. However, he was cut loose by Cincinnati before the start of free agency.

In 2014, Little appeared in six games and recorded six receptions for 69 yards receiving.
