Bengals re-sign WR Dane Sanzenbacher

Posted: Updated:

The Bengals announced Tuesday they have re-signed wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher to a one-year contract.

A former Ohio State Buckeye, Sanzenbacher has played parts of two seasons with the Bengals and was a restricted free agent after the 2013 season.

Sanzenbacher caught 6 passes for 61 yards last season but figures to have a chance to have a bigger impact this coming season with the departure of Andrew Hawkins to Cleveland.

"Dane is a player with an instinctive feel for the game," said Bengals wide receivers 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."

Sanzenbacher is an Ohio native and was first team all Big Ten his senior year at OSU.

"Even in limited time, I feel like I've made strides (as a player). I have all of these scenarios in my head of what I can do but until you get the opportunity to go out and do it, you don't really know," he said. "You've got to go out and show it."
