AJ Green

Recommended Posts

From all the reports And the video of him on Bengals.com, it doesn’t sound like AJ plans to skip training camp for a new deal. Sounds like he is trying to schedule a get together to throw with Burrow and the new receivers which is great to see. He had a lot of positive things to say about both Burrow and Higgins.

It will be really fun to watch a healthy AJ catching passes from Burrow. I could see him balling out this year and earning a big pay day

It kind of makes sense really.  If he doesn't mesh with Burrow and Burrow develops that trust with Higgins, Tate, Boyd, Ross, etc... without AJ there, it could hurt his numbers, which AJ will desperately need after being hurt the last 24 games.

I pray we hang onto Auden Tate, but he’s technically WR5 at this point, I could see him being inactive unless there are injuries. Those final spots are usually special teams.

He really does. It’s hurting his legacy.

I doubt that's his motivation. He's a pro, and would show up regardless to be the best AJ he can be. The other stuff is a nice secondary motivation only.

Why wouldn't we?  He's got two years left on a rookie deal

Yeah they're not going to cut him. But being the 5th receiver not playing STs, it does make it tricky to keep him active.

They might keep 7 on the 53.  The last two CBs will strictly be special teams guys.  It boggles my mind that some think we HAVE to keep a WR active for teams.  Erickson can do that.  Tate isn't going to be inactive unless he's dinged

It's just unusual that only one of them does play teams. 

When Tate was active last year, it was normally as the #3.
