  Bengals | A.J. Green not keen on tag    Thu Jan 23, 01:22 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green, a pending free agent, could receive the franchise tag from the Bengals this offseason. 'The franchise tag is not the best thing,' Green said in a TV interview. 'But like I said, I'm not turning down 18 million dollars. It just happens. When you run a business, you have to make difficult decisions. But I feel like when you put that on me, then that's what you're showing me, you only want me for one year. And I always play with a chip on my shoulder.'

Footballguys view: The Bengals could use the tag on Green just to buy more time to get a new long-term contract done. If tagged, the two sides would have until mid-July to work something out. We'll see if a contract can be agreed upon before the tag would need to be placed on the veteran receiver.

  Bengals | A.J. Green may return in 2020    Wed Jan 22, 05:13 PM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR A.J. Green is a player the Bengals plan to have on their roster next season, according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin.

Footballguys view: Green has previously stated that he wants to be in Cincinnati if the two sides can reach an agreement. The Bengals want to keep him around, so it seems reasonable to assume something will happen to do just that. The team could always use the franchise tag on Green if a new deal is not reached by the time free agency opens up.

  Bengals | Cincinnati undecided about Andy Dalton    Wed Jan 22, 04:47 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton's future with the Bengals is uncertain at this time, according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin.

Footballguys view: We just don't see Dalton remaining with the Bengals in 2020. The team would save $17.7 million in salary cap space if they trade or release Dalton. Expect the Bengals to select a quarterback with the No.1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft.

  Bengals | Daronte Jones done in Cincinnati    Mon Jan 13, 02:49 PM

Cincinnati Bengals secondary/cornerbacks coach Daronte Jones will not return to the team in 2020, according to ESPN's Ben Baby.

Footballguys view: Only Darius Phillips outperformed expectations under Jones this year, and William Jackson and BW Webb were disappointments. The team also let their linebackers coach Tem Lubaku go after the season.

Impending free-agent WR A.J. Green (ankle) made it clear Monday, Dec. 30, that his preference is to remain with the Cincinnati Bengals.'If something should get done, then I'm here. I want to be here. I think they want me here. We'll see what happens,' Green told reporters.

Footballguys view: Green didn't play at all this year. He's a free agent in 2020 and should have quite a bit of interest on the open market even after an injury-plagued 2019 season.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton hopes to start in 2020    Thu Dec 26, 02:46 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton said he hopes to be the starting quarterback for a team next season.

Footballguys view: Dalton is probably one of the 32 best quarterbacks in the league, but barely. He should be a bridge quarterback to a draft pick, but is not among the top names available this offseason in one of the most intriguing quarterback markets in recent memory.

  Bengals | A.J. Green finally lands on IR    Mon Dec 23, 01:03 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Dec. 23.

Footballguys view: With one week remaining in the regular season, the Bengals decide to shut down Green. He didn't play a single game this year as he dealt with this ankle injury and it will be interesting to see how that impacts his market in 2020. Green is set to be an unrestricted free agent in the spring and he could command more money than the Bengals are willing to pay him. He did say earlier this month that he would be willing to play on the Franchise Tag next year but he wants a longer commitment.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said he didn't like the idea of the franchise tag, but he wouldn't sit out to avoid playing under it.

Footballguys view: Green is set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2020. The Bengals could give him a new deal, franchise tag him or let him walk. Green's recent injury history is going to be a factor into the type of deal he's going to get on the open market. Perhaps a team that is close will want to add Green for a good price to put them over the top.
