ESPN’s Field Yates: Best free-agent fit, A.J. Green to Eagles
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has four weeks left in his Bengals tenure before he'll be eligible for free agency. He's missed the entire 2019 season, and at this point, with the Bengals currently 1-11, its unlikely that Green plays a single snap this season after undergoing offseason ankle surgery.
At this stage of his career, the 31-year old Green might be looking for a chance to win soon with the Bengals in rebuilding mode. However, he has played his entire career in Cincinnati, meaning he will need to decide if he is ready for a new address.
ESPN’s Field Yates thinks the best course of action for Green would be to head somewhere else and thinks Philadelphia would be the right fit for the talented wide receiver.
Even understanding that many of Philly's struggles this year at wide receiver have been about injury, it's still a major need. Green -- himself out this season because of an ankle injury -- is such a terrific talent and the type of player who would help rectify this offense's problems in a hurry.
During his 8-year career, Green has caught 602 passes for 8,907 yards, 63 touchdowns in 111 career games. He made the Pro Bowl in each of his first seven NFL seasons.
The Eagles have Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson signed for next season.
