CINCINNATI -- He's spent his entire NFL career with the Bengals, but Mohamed Sanu could be packing up his colorful cartoon cleats and signing with a new team if the Bengals don't renew his contract.

According to Fox Sports, there's a pretty good chance the contract won't be renewed.

"Multiple sources told that there is virtually no chance Sanu will re-sign with the Bengals," Alex Marvez wrote. "Sanu will instead pursue opportunities elsewhere when the free-agent signing period begins March 9."

Marvez's story also said Sanu's agent hasn't spoken with the Bengals regarding a new contract.

Sanu is entering his fifth season in the league. The New Jersey native played at wide receiver and a little quarterback at Rutgers. He was a third-round draft pick for the Bengals in 2012.

QUIZ: Which Bengals player are you?

Sanu took a backseat in 2015 to A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert; his season's stats paled in comparison to a big 2014 season when Green, Eifert and Marvin Jones were both out of commission.

But his background as a quarterback paired with his large size allowed Sanu to throw, block, catch and run; his versatility shined under the guidance of the adventurous Hue Jackson.

While he was a wideout (for all intents and purposes), he played "emergency backup quarterback" behind AJ McCarron after Andy Dalton was injured.

Sanu is also the father to a 6 month old, Mohamed Sanu Jr., who dominates his father's social media accounts.

Sanu is also a self-proclaimed Dragonball Z superfan and religiously tweets horoscopes (he's a Leo).

Cleveland sportswriters have reported that the Browns plan to pursue Sanu; in Cleveland, Sanu would join former Bengals offensive coordinator Jackson who was hired as the Browns' newest head coach. The New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons have also expressed interest, according to Fox Sports.

Wherever he ends up, hopefully Sanu's quirky style and his jack-of-all-trades resumé will both be proudly on display.
