One former Browns wide receiver has two new dates to circle in his calendar.
Greg Little signed today with the Bengals after Cincinnati placed Marvin Jones on season-ending injured reserve with a broken foot, according to NFL.com.
The former second round pick spent three years in Cleveland before the Browns released him on May 16. Little was largely a bust as a Brown. He recorded 1,821 yards and eight touchdowns over three seasons, but dropped eight passes in 2013 and 14 in 2012, according to unofficial estimates by Pro Football Focus.
Little signed with the Raiders days later, promptly tweeting that he would be looking forward to playing against the Browns.

The North Carolina native soon had to erase the circle from his calendar, as Oakland cut Little in late August. Little has been out of the league since.
Little and Bengals are scheduled to play the Browns on Thursday, Nov. 6 and Sunday, Dec. 14. Whether or not Little circles the dates in his calendar, he'll have a little extra on the line when the two teams face off later this season.
