One of the Bengals’ OTA projects has been cleaning up wide receiver A.J. Green’s routes.
Green had a fantastic rookie season, but the team believes he can take his game to another level with more attention to detail in his routes. “He’s always been such a good receiver that he could beat guys a lot of times just by running around them,” Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden told Dan Pompei of the National Football Post.
“There were times last year when he wasn’t as detailed as he should be in terms of getting off the line, his depths and his route running. I think some of those routes will be cleaned up. He’s working on it. He’s so receptive to it. Has a ways to go, but he wants to be great. With the talent he has, throw in the desire he has, the work ethic he has, and the sky is the limit.”
