2. A.J. Green, Bengals
This one has been talked about already. Recently, NFL analyst Gil Brandt explored the idea of the Bengals potentially trading A.J. Green. As the injury-riddled veteran wideout approaches a contract year at age 32, the Bengals might be looking to get some value for him.
So Brandt suggested that the Eagles could be one of five teams that will target Green. The rumored cost for him? It sounds like a second-round pick. While Green is talented, that’s a high pick for a guy who has been fighting through injuries for the last two years. Plus, Green is a one-year rental, and we’ve been down that road before in Philly.
While we don’t suggest the Eagles go that route, you can bet that Howie Roseman will still get on the phone to see if he can get a bargain, as he should. Unless the Bengals are so willing to get rid of Green (they’re not), they offer a ridiculously discounted price — then Roseman should probably stay away from this situation as it’s quite similar to DeSean Jackson’s.
