Depending on the outcome of tomorrows game...AJ Green

People please stop with the AJ Green nonsense.  He listed by the Bengals as being out several more weeks. He's had numerous injury issues and the most important number is 31. When camp starts next July he'll be 32. 

Hard pass. I want Zay gonzo as much as the next guy but lets get a capable young wr to go with JA.

Precisely - I'd rather we draft one high with the wealth of WR in this next draft and continue to build the foundation at all position levels. With room for improvement, Allen, Singletary, Knox, Dawkins, [insert 1st round WR here], Oliver, Edmunds, White are all great key pieces to build a team with and maintain high talented youth for several years while maintaining a manageable cap situation - the upside would last longer, for cheaper, and have a higher ceiling.

Will AJ Green be available?  And if so...do we make a move?  I honestly think it will happen before deadline.  He's what could out this team over the hump. 


will he be healthy as he CURRENTLY isn’t and said he likely won’t be for 5-8 weeks Last week. 
 

not trading for a 30 year old oft Injured WR that is currently Injured

Why not?  He's in last year of contract.  We literally need 8 to 10 games out of him and make a playoff push.

because you don’t trade for a Hurt WR. He isn’t even going to be healthy by the Trade Deadline

Aj Green > capable young wr 

And again.   He's in last year.   This is a rental.  Want to make a superbowl push this year.  We need a couple bodies.

He was working out before game tonight and has the specialist appt this week.  So if he's got a timeline again.  Why not.  He's a rental.

Not sure why anyone would be against getting a pro bowler and tall long weapon to make a run...if it doesn't work.  No harm no foul you give him an injury settlement and move on. This D is ready to compete.  The offense needs more help.

Why does it seem like nobody is aware that AJ is hurt and hasn't played a single snap this year.

so would you rather have an all-pro who hasn't played a down as a 1/2 year rental or a practice squad player like Duke who hasn't played a down....it's a no brainer for me. Rent him this year and then sign Gordon away from the Pats as a FA next year....

Know what happens when you see a specialist?  Nothing good

Have the Bengals expressed actual interest in trading Green or has it just been speculation?

Bill Polian signed a 32 or 33 year old James Lofton.   Seems like he knew how to build an offense.

Because most people here only watch the Bills and the odd prime time game. 

 

By the end of the season not sure you will think we still need a TE. Knox is gonna get better and better. 

 

I’m becoming a HUGE Knox fan!

What if he can't come back? Or if the injury makes him useless then what? He gets hurt a lot these days, what if he plays 1 game?

Yeah, but Lofton was healthy, cost nothing to acquire and would take a “normal” salary. Yep, Bill made a great move there, but this is a very different situation.

No risk no reward...if you want to play with the big boys you need to take risks like them.   stop thinking like a 9-7 team would .. If he pans out we become a contender.

Then you cut him or place on Ir?  Why is this so hard for you people.  You aren't committing beyond this year and we have cap space.

Provided the Bengals would accept a 3rd for him, this is absolutely the perfect time to trade for AJ. He is hurt, no problem, he would take at least two weeks to get the playbook down anyways. Let him learn it while injured, come back with a full week of practice and roll into the game 100% up to speed.

There's talk that he's in no rush to play until he gets a new deal. The injury isn't the only thing keeping him off the field.

All for wheeling and dealing. I’d like them to target someone more dynamic than  AJG 

 

Emmanuel Sanders? Sanu? Devante parker? 

 

Id love them to pry out Evans from Tampa but now that they beat the Rams Winston May have a second life.

Green didnt have his leg amputated.  He'll be back soon.   At this point in their careers I think AJ is way more highly regarded than Lofton was.  Like others have said we have the cap space.   You could cut Murphy, Kroft(talk about a guy who get hurt a lot) and Spencer Long next year and have a 75 percent of what he would want a year.  This team needs a receiver that can step in and produce.   To me Brown and Beasley are 2 or 3 receivers not close to a 1.  AJ is a stud.

Diggs would be a huge addition for us. Great speed, great route runner, great hands, amazing burst and start stop acceleration. I'm not sure what I would be willing to give up for that contract, maybe a 2nd and a 5th.

It was a little high but NFL receivers have to make that catch in the end zone Zay has done that far to often time to move on from him and just realize it isn’t going to happen with him
