Would you trade a 2nd or a 3rd for A.J. Green?

The Pats will get him for a 7th.

They got AB for nothing. If they wanted AJ, they'd get him for a bag of peanuts and Goodell would approve it.

Yes. 

 

He's a 7 time Pro Bowl WR (only been in the league 8 years) and has PHENOMENAL hands. As Zay has shown, it's nowhere near a guarantee to grab a WR with a 2nd or 3rd round pick, and even if you do hit on one, it's highly unlikely you'll land one as exceptional as AJ Green.

And Injury Prone? Sure, he's missed some games here and there, but many WR's have. He played all 16 games in 2017, then missed 7 last season. And every year aside from 2016 & 2018 he's had over 1,000 yards receiving (and in 2016 he had 964 yards in only 10 games). 

 

I'd trade a 2nd or a 3rd if the Bengals would take it, let him rest & heal a bit longer while he learns the playbook & gets up to speed, then throw him in after you know he's 100% recovered & good to go.

We haven't had a WR of his caliber in ages. Eric Moulds would be the closest, but Green is even better than Moulds. Even if he only played half a season for us, he'd likely have a bigger impact than any other WR we'll have that plays all 16 games.

Given his injury, this would probably be the perfect time to grab him. Let him sit and learn the playbook for a few weeks, get him a week of practice, and have him be full go by game time.

Why does everyone want to trade for AJ Green. We’d be giving up a draft pick for a rental of an injured player that is about to be a FA. The move just makes no sense. We are 2-0, not on the verge of a Super Bowl victory this year. Stay the course.

WHY??????

 

COMPLETELY unnecessary to bring in a player who gets hurt and is older. We have a receiving corps better than half the teams in the league already, and I'm confident that Duke Williams could come in and make it even better.

 

Because he’s twice as good as any reciever  on this roster and the pats have too many weapons.

We have relatively large amounts to spend in a shrinking window to spend it. There’s a strong argument to use some picks for proven vets instead of day 2 projects. 

 

I havent followed his injury but a day two pick for a plug and play top receiver or pass rusher is a no brainer

Yep.

 

Id give up a 4th for him....maybe a 3rd.

 

Green, Brown, and Beasley as your wideouts ain't bad at all.

"He is only under contract for this year, but signing him to a short extension would not be an issue as the Bills are projected over $80 million in cap space next season. If they sign him for 2-3 years, they could have him, Brown, and Beasley under contract for multiple seasons before the team has to pay Josh Allen."

I think I would. 

 

 

I want him, Bryce, but they should be doing cartwheels in Cincy even if we give them a 3rd.  Last year of his deal, injury prone, currently making 12 plus million and this team needs to start rebuilding.

 

He is that "extra piece" that a team like ours might need.

 

The Bengals don't need as much now as an extra piece as they do part of a foundation.

Giving up a 3rd they would have to have a deal done for after 2019  Not sure Beane is interested in doling out a lot of guaranteed money for a guy coming off more foot problems.  They certainly have the cap space and picks

You can be Jerry Rice, but if you are injured and not playing in half of your games, you're nothing but a spectator.

How’s a conditional pick - a 4th that would become a 3rd with a games played stipulation sound?   I’d do that when he can pass a physical.

More importantly, what caused the first one to start? Cinci isn't gonna deal him as long as Dalton stays upright

I’m interested in a WR for Buffalo in a trade.  AJ seems on the decline though. I wonder who’s on the market? . 

 

Getting josh some big catch radius guys on the outside would be outstanding.

Thats the most reasonable suggestion yet, especially if the Bills are convinced that Green can help them make some noise in the playoffs.

I would do it. He’s on pace to join rare company the plus 1,000 receptions plus 14,000 yards club. Having just turned age 31 he’s got a lot of life left in his wiry 6’4” frame.

31 is not really too old in todays game for a wr, if he is healthy.
