A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals
A.J. Green is another player like Yannick Ngakoue. A.J. Green wanted out of Cincinnati, but instead of them risking that this offseason, they placed a franchise tag on him that, while it gave him more money, made him stay in Cincinnati.
They can only do that for one year though. So this season might be Green’s last in Cincinnati. If the Bengals are willing to try and get something for Green, the Saints should be game to offer them something they will take in return.
A.J. Green has had a history of injuries, but hopefully they are behind him. He missed all last year due to an injury. Theoretically, he just missed the first part of the season and then sat out the remainder as to not get hurt again before his contract was up.
Either way, the Saints have a chance now to secure yet another talented wide receiver. This would result in them having to clear cap space to re-sign him in the offseason, but that shouldn’t be too hard with who is currently set to be a free agent in 2021.
