With a league leading defense in place, the New England Patriots are looking to bolster their offense and add some weapons around Tom Brady, and that very well could come from the Bengals.
According to Bleacher Report, the Patriots, as well as the New Orleans Saints, are reportedly interested in trading for Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green if he’s made available.
Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reported on the interest in Green, who has missed the entire season with a foot injury. La Canfora indicated that the Bengals could land a first-round pick in exchange for Green when he gets back to 100 percent.
The 31-year-old is in the final year of his contract and is making $12 million in base salary this season.
Tight end Tyler Eifert is reportedly also included in the trade talks.
