Quarterback Andy Dalton is entering the final year of his rookie contract and despite taking the Bengals to the playoffs his first three years, he has yet to win a playoff game.
Dalton is hoping for a Jay Cutler deal but there are are questions about whether the Bengals want to pay the price.
Not only is offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is in his corner, but so is star wide receiver A.J. Green who says Dalton is the only one he wants throwing passes to him, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.
“We came in together and that is the great thing for me and him,” Green said. “I know he’s my guy. I don’t want any other quarterback throwing me the ball. I think he feels the same way about me.”
Green said one reason he wants Dalton as his quarterback is the chemistry they’ve built.
“He feels confident that whether I’m double covered, triple covered, it don’t matter I’m going to come down with the ball,” Green said. “And I feel like we’ve grown over these last three years and I feel like this year is going to be another key year for us.”
