The Cincinnati Bengals are signing free agent wide receiver Trent Taylor, NFL Network reported Monday.

Taylor, 27, was with the Bengals over the weekend during rookie minicamp for a tryout, wearing ex-Bengal A.J. Green’s old No. 18 jersey. The Bengals lost slot receiver and punt returner Alex Erickson to the Houston Texans in free agency, roles that can be filled by Taylor.

Taylor has played in 41 games (two starts) over three seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. He has 79 career receptions for 731 yards and three touchdowns. The Niners selected Taylor in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
