A.J. Green ready to work with Joe Burrow whenever that’s possible

A.J. Green said goodbye to his longtime quarterback Andy Dalton on a FaceTime call after Dalton was released by the Bengals last week and now he’s looking forward to getting to work with the team’s new quarterback.

Green wasn’t able to work with Dalton last year because of an ankle injury, but he said he is “back to normal” and has been in communication with Joe Burrow since the Bengals made Burrow the first overall pick in the draft. With COVID-19 shutdowns in place, they can’t do more than talk at this point but Green said they’ve talked about plans to work on the other aspect of their relationship.

“We’ve been talking back and forth. We were talking yesterday and I know he wants to get together and throw somewhere,” Green said, via the Bengals website. “I told him wherever he is, we’ll come to him. I don’t know where, when, how. It’s all who can fly where and when. He’s the quarterback. He makes his location and we have to get there.”

Once they do start working together, Green will be trying to do more than adjusting to Burrow’s playing style. Green may be the veteran, but he wants to be sure Burrow “feels comfortable leading” right out of the gate because that’s the quarterback’s role on the team.

  1. I was a boy watching the Big Red Machine. Big time football can be born in Cincinnati. Let’s go Joe, Who Dey.

  2. AJ Green nothing but class – can’t imagine 3/4 of veteran WR in NFL of his stature wanting to travel to his rookie QB turf to hookup

  3. AJ Green can’t stay on the field more than half the time. Bengals need to move on from him.

    Let’s back off the AJ Green hype train a bit. AJ Green is going to be 32 in July, he hasn’t played football since the first half of 2018 (Age 30) and his last dominant receiving year was 2015.

    He’s also on a one year deal. If he fails this year there is no next year for 33 yr old receivers who fall off a cliff.

    Guy is pure class, and one of the best when healthy. He has been dinged up a bit lately – however I think it would have made more sense to get something for him 1-2 years ago. Hard to give up your top player and fan favorite. However if Burrow is the real deal, they could turn around ship here quickly.

  6. That’s classy and a lesson in humility by A.J. If the Bengals want to make a serious run over the next few seasons, they need leadership on and off the field.

    As an LSU fan, I can tell you that Burrow has nerves of steel. He never got rattled during that championship run. If that carries over to his NFL game, he’s going to be a great QB.

  7. “He’s the quarterback. He makes his location and we have to get there.”- imagine Anotnio Brown saying this lol. AJ is too notch player and human and the ultimate team guy.

  8. AJ Green is probable for week 1 of 2020…..until he is out for 10-17 weeks with a tweaked ankle.

  9. Now that he is getting franchise tag money his ankle is ok…and says he’s willing to go to Burrows place since he knows travel is restricted. And all the Cincy fans fall for it because he SAYS the right things for public consumption. But essentially held out all last year with a 4-6 week injury he suffered in July. Classy guy.

  10. Bengal fans would donate their Corona checks to AJ if he asked for them. This man is a legend in Cinci. He would have to sit out 2 more seasons while collecting 30+ million before they would start turning on him.

  11. He will be a great mentor and leader for the young guns on their rise from the ashes. Playoffs in ‘20 and Super Bowl in 2021. Get your popcorn ready haters.

  12. He could have played at some point last year.
    He quit on his team.
    Must be good friends with Ebron.

  13. Green is set to make $17.6 million this year.. He should be willing to catch passes from Burrow or the team’s mascot at any time.

  14. I grew up a fan of The Big Red Machine too, and I figured it was just normal for your team to be the best every year. Wishful thinking. Now the Bengals have a legit shot at their own dynasty. Burrow is the real deal and A. J. Green is feeling it.

    Seems like people are mixing up John Ross and Aj Green
    _______________________________________________

    Ross has played more games in the last 3 years than Green and his fake ankle sprain

  16. I’m hoping AJ comes back strong this season. It’s no coincidental AJs last fully healthy season was the last time Cincy made the playoffs.
