    Because it's $6m for a 7x Pro Bowl, 3x 2nd team All pro wide receiver.

    $6m is what you pay for average WR3's.

    People acting like we paid $15m.

    AJ Green's 2020 stats:
    47/523/11.1 avg / 2 td

    Fitz' 2020:
    54/409/7.6 avg / 1 td


    at a minimum, the team upgraded the "reliable vet who will make tough catches" slot in the WR core

    the signing is a minimal contract. Anyone crying over the 6 million for green is laughable. If it balloons to to 8 then he was clearly worth it.... lol

    The amount doesn’t bother me. The signing negating the signing of a younger faster receiver does.

    The signing for itself doesn't preclude drafting a fast guy , he got 1 year deal and Kirk is in his contract year, just the lack of picks and holes in the roster can prevent us from drafting a quality young receiver, and that hasn't nothing to do with aj green

    There was no guy who is even remotely as accomplished as AJ that you would get for that kind of coin.

    Nelson Agholar got 13 mil!

    Absolutely meaningless. Pro bowls, all pro, blah, blah, in the past. The past is not necessarily an indicator of the future, ESPECIALLY with so old a player that hasn't been good for a while.

    Great, so we paid low money and STILL didn't fill the GLARING WR need for speed and youth. Green brings neither. So we didn't pay a lot for the type of player we didn't need. Whoopdie do!

    THANK YOU! We needed youth and speed. We got AJ Green instead. So we'll have the same deficiencies at the position as last season. Unless Keim pulls off a miracle and drafts a talented young receiver that fits the mold. Does anyone at all have faith that'll happen? No? Great, so we're boned. AGAIN.

    Who cares about the money? Is AJ Green young, a speedy burner receiver, either or both? No. So it's a dumb deal.

    You speak so definitively about this. If Green even remotely has a good season, you'll be eating a lot of crow.

    My bar is good starting WR, which he most likely will be.

    For $6 mil, you're getting a guy who gets 30-40 catches usually.

    I think Keim mentioned that team has 38 of his targets charted as uncatchable last year. Guess Bengals qb's where just chucking it up to survive with lack of protection from that oline

    I said “signing” not drafting. Relying on keim “I don’t understand how to evaluate collegiate wrs” to draft a good one . . . again, after four failed attempts . . . is idiocy.

    But it’s $6M that you can remove from bidding on a Curtis Samuel, for example.

    Btw, Lynn swann is more “accomplished” than AJ Green. Should we sign him too?

    as with all investments, past performance is not an indicator of future performance with old, oft-injured, washed up wrs.

    I'm ambivalent about Green. I see the potential upside, I see the potential downside, the contract doesn't bother me. What bothers me is the lack of youth, as others have mentioned. In 2022, we'll be right back to square one looking for another weapon for Kyler, and will have a litany of other needs alongside that. And the scary part to that is that if Green has a good year, we could potentially sign him again and just get closer and closer to being that team that let it ride too long.

    Know why we can’t operate at peak offense? No one to stretch the field. Easier to limit running game with zero threat downfield. We are just as slow today as we were last season with this signing.
