Right Aj Green didn’t play last season did he? Or am i missing something?
No i didn’t think so. Green missed the entire season through injury, and has played a grand total of 9 games in the last two seasons.
Yes, before I get Bengals fans sending for my head, Green has undoubtedly been an unreal talent in Cincy, and deserves the respect that he has gained from that, however, that doesn’t mean you’re getting the same guy back for the 2020 season.
Green has 6 1000 yard seasons under his belt, and a 7th that feel agonisingly short. He’s a great receiver, and one of the best to do it in Cincinnati.
Aj Green concerns…
Green has recurring foot injury issues, and was sidelined last season due to a left ankle injury. This means Green hasn’t had any game day full speed action in nearly 18 months. There’s every chance that he’s fully healthy, and comes back and hits another 1000 yards this year, but there’s a lot to be considered, and nobody seems to be paying any attention.
GMFB stated they’d take Burrow and Green over Tua and Devante Parker, and spent the whole three minutes singing Greens’ praises. So now you know where the inspiration for this post came from.

Chris Simms then released his top 10 receivers list, and Green is ranked number 7, ahead of Amari Cooper and Stefon Diggs. I’ll also point out that Tyreek Hill is number 1 on his list. THESE GUYS GET PAID FOR THIS????
But you just cant put Green there i’m sorry but no. Green is now 31 years old, has had around 18 months out, has not been fully healthy for 2 years, and has a new quarterback to build a relationship with. He also has Tyler Boyd, John Ross, Auden Tate and rookie Tee Higgins. Frankly i was surprised Green wasn’t traded, until I heard a rumour that Burrow had specifically asked for the Bengals to keep him.
Green might just come back and resume business as a pro bowl receiver, but i’m gonna need to see the proof all up in the pudding before i jump on that train. And stop disrespecting my boy Vante.
