A.J. Green gets the franchise tag in the hopes that he and likely quarterback of the future Joe Burrow develop a connection to rejuvenate the franchise.

As expected, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was given the franchise tag. Coming off missing the entire 2019 season with an ankle injury and playing only 8 games in 2018, the Bengals are encouraged enough about his recovery and readiness for the upcoming season. Joe Burrow will be the new man at quarterback in Cincinnati and giving him a proven receiving threat in Green will help in his growth and adjustment to the pro game.

In spite of the limited firepower offensively in Cincinnati, Green has been one of the more prolific receivers in Bengals’ history. Second to Chad Johnson in receptions and yards, the addition of LSU quarterback Burrow could help propel Green past Johnson’s totals and cement Green as a Bengals legend. The duo would surely bolster attendance at home games and re-energize a franchise desperate for any type of success.
