I might be in the minority with this but I'm good unless we can get him for like a 4th. I think the last few years have shown you can get a guy in the draft and develop him and they can contribute early. If AJ was about 2 years younger and had less injury histroy I  would be all in giving up a 2nd this year and a future mid rounder for him. 

No, I'm with you there, too. If he had 3 years left on his deal, that'd be one thing. I'm not giving up a 3 or better to have a guy for less than a full season, then walk in FA.

AJ Green is faking an injury to get traded and someone is offering two firsts?

 

good one...laffin

 

green is a one year rental.....wouldnt give up much...at most a 3rd. highly likely he chases a ring in free agency next season and signs elsewhere

The negativity around him by some here is overboard.  AJ Green is still young enough to be impactful for the next few years and when healthy he has been very productive.

 

He is not someone who has been chronically injured throughout his career aside from these past 15 months or so.   For the right price he should definitely considered.  If I had to take a guess what he would be worth from the Bill's perspective I'd say maybe a 2020 3rd and 2021 4th.

 

Something else to factor into the cost: if Green stays in Cincinnati this year, and signs elsewhere in fa, the Bengals would almost certainly receive a 3rd round comp pick in 2021, so that probably has to be included in the compensation now.

 

So the remaining compensation will basically amount to the value of 10 games of his services and the right to sign him to a new deal before anyone else.

Jets don't need him.... The Bills are in dire need of a guy like him. 

 

Have you seen their wr corps? They need him probably worse than we do.

I am with you.  I just don't know how much good football is left in AJ Green. If it is a 4th or a 5th round pick, sure. But not more than that.

Assuming they can play the comp pick game... When you have to sign free agents to fix x y and z it can be difficult. It's also a 2021 3rd which doesn't help you in 2020

Anderson Crowder damaryus Thomas.

 

Enunwa got hurt right away which hurt them. I don't see them getting a rental WR when they're already losing Anderson next year.

A 31 year old WR with a long list of injury history is not worth a 1st round pick. I would do it for a 2nd.

Demarius Thomas isn't the Demarius Thomas he used to be or the Pats wouldn't of unloaded him. He is just another guy now. All they have is Anderson and so ho hums. Their leading reciever is Jamison Crowder with 272 yards. Of which most of that he got against the Bills(99) and Cowboys (98). Been close to non existant otherwise. Of course now that I think of it.. they didn't have a qb between those two games so I guess that didn;t help.

To me this is a good reason to trade for him from Buffalos perspective- especially if they plan to resign their own and not spend big on FA.

 

Trade a 4th or 5th - use him to get better this year - try to sign him at a reasonable cost or let him walk for a potential Comp pick.  
 

You can recoup most or all of your cost, but you have to know what your plan is for next FA to make this work.

Green's contract is up....this is like a rental for the balance of the season.  Not worth a #1 imho.

Those three will be good with Darnold.

"Bated" breath, short for "abated." I know it sounds dumb but that's where it comes from.

The Bills just may be the team that gets him a ring next year. Positive thoughts, positive thoughts.

I'm pretty sure they would trade him for John Brown in a millisecond.

Your last sentence contradicts everything your wrote before.

 

They were playing with a 3rd string QB for 4 weeks who is now unemployed.

I'm pretty sure they wouldn't.

Let's put it this way then... this fanbase would crucify Beane if he traded Brown straight up for Anderson. 

 

I won't even get into the fact the Jets fanbase views Anderson in a similar way as we view Foster right now.

Funny you mentioned that. I was just wondering where the “baited” breath thing came from. Now I know. (And no, I’m not being sarcastic, I was truly wondering)

A few people on this messageboard seem to be the biggest stans of Robbie Anderson. 

 

941 yards in 2017

752 yards in 2018

 

I wont hold this year's stats against him.

 

John Brown:

 

715 yards in basically half a season with Flacco last year before they went to a ground and pound/2 TE offense

390 yards so far through 5 games in 2019

He had a 1,000 yard season in 2015

 

Robbie Anderson certainly isn't bad, but he doesn't have the hands or route tree capabilities of John Brown.

When I watch Anderson I see weak hands when he's challenged on the catch.

 

Not that Brown has traditionally had great hands, either.  But at this point he's more well rounded, IMO.

Said it before....AJ Green is the kind of trade that could put this team in the AFC title game/SB. Flame away...but I feel the Bill's are one playmaker away on offense.

this is a bit aggressive.... the dude has never put up 1000 yds yet and that's not even that hard to hit for guys in the NFL now days.

 

brown already has one under his belt and is on pace for 1200 through 5 so far this year with a team that's not throwing for a ton of yards and inconsistencies in the pass game.

 

I get there is a lot more to the position than yards but his production hasn't been anything to write home about. whats up with the Anderson love in this thread?
