Summary

While he did have a noteworthy season in 2014 with New Englad when he scored seven touchdowns and finished just shy of 1,000 yards, LaFell isn't the man to bring an end to the dearth of talent starting at wide receiver opposite A.J. Green in Cincinnati. LaFell is excited about the opportunity, though, and says he expects to be used all over the field - including the slot. But with Green, tight end Tyler Eifert, and running back Giovani Bernard a threat out of the backfield, LaFell is at best tied for third in the pecking order for Andy Dalton's targets. LaFell's contract (one year, $2.5 million) neither suggests he's in the team's long-term plans nor means they're financially motivated to start him all season. He's on a true "prove it" contract.
