As a rookie fifth round pick in 2011, Denarius Moore was looking like a star in the making. That was Hue Jackson's one and only season as Raiders head coach in Oakland.

After four seasons in Oakland, he hit free agency a month ago and he has finally found a home. He is headed to Cincinnati to re-unite with his former head coach, Hue Jackson, who is the Bengals' offensive coordinator. He signs a one-year deal according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

After his rookie season, the Raiders expected him to take the next step and become the star receiver they needed. He put up some decent seasons and showed some flashes but that next step never came. Then last season his most memorable moment was having the ball bounce off his chest and intercepted to lose the team's week three game against the Patriots.

After that, he lost his starting job and was officially on his way out of Oakland. Hue Jackson will see if Moore can re-discover the kind of talents he wowed everyone with as a rookie.
