Zac Taylor speaks out on A.J. Green’s lack of production
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has not exactly had the strongest of starts to the new campaign. Nonetheless, this does not seem to be a cause for concern for Cincinnati head coach Zac Taylor.
When asked about Green’s rather pedestrian form of late, Taylor was quick to talk up his wide receiver:
“His time will come,” Taylor said, via Tyler Dragon of the Cincinnati Enquirer (h/t Josh Alper of NBC Sports). “There is going to be moments where he has unbelievable games and he’s going to help us win here. It’s tremendous to have that guy as a captain and a part of this offense and this team.”
On Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the veteran caught only one pass throughout the contest, gaining just three yards for hid side. Nonetheless, the Bengals still emerged with a 33-25 victory. That was Cincinnati’s first win of the season, which has allowed them to up their current tally to 1-2-1.
Green has long been one of the the Bengal’s primary options on offense. The 32-year-old had a injury-ridden 2019-20 season, which kept him on the sidelines for a big chunk of the campaign. He has been able to recover since, but clearly, he has yet to return to top form. He is no spring chicken as well, and at this point, it appears that the time has come for Green to pass the baton.
Cincinnati will be back in action on Sunday to face off against the 3-1 Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.
