The first thought that came to mind when thinking about A.J. Green and the Seahawks was “do we really need another WR?” Well, yes and no. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf have been AMAZING, and the Seahawks definitely have other options that need filing, and need it badly. Yet, does it hurt to make a run at a guy like Green who might be undervalued at this point due to injury, and of course, from being on the Bengals? Doesn’t hurt at all.
A.J. Green missed all of 2019 with a foot injury, but the longtime Bengal has been durable throughout his terrific career. Unfortunately for Green, his lost season came in a contract year, as his four-year, $60M extension signed in 2015 winds down. But, that means it could be time to test the market.
A.J. Green is a superstar whose game has ever taken a step back, he has averaged 75 catches, 1,113 yards and just under eight touchdowns per season in his career. But at what cost does this come?
According to SB Nations FieldGulls: “Seattle is in a welcome salary cap situation entering free agency with, in all likelihood, over $70M in space to work with. While a few obvious needs will eat into that figure, the Seahawks have plenty of room to acquire a high-priced free agent, such as Green.”
