Photo by Andy Lyons/ Will Sample’s third season be his best in Cincinnati? One analyst thinks so. The strength of the Cincinnati Bengals is their passing game.

The former second-round pick will enter his third year in the league next season, and the Bengals would benefit greatly from the tight end hitting his stride as a receiving threat.
