Mike Green to Cincy

Postby Nero » Sat Apr 05, 2003 6:04 am

Cincinnati picked up former Tennessee fullback Mike Green off of waivers on Thursday, filling a void created by the departure of starter Lorenzo Neal (San Diego) and backup Nick Luchey (Green Bay), the Cincinnati Enquirer reported. The Titans rescinded their one-year, $605,000 tender to Green on Wednesday. He will step in as a starter for Cincinnati. "It's a good situation for me because of the guys they lost," Green said. "Cincinnati is a team on the rise. They wore us out when we played them, and they always got after us."

I'm not sure what Cincy is thinking here. They are paying him just above the league minimum, so he obviously isn't that great, and there are some good ones in the upcoming draft.

Oh well, guess Cincy hasn't righted the ship completely yet.

Green was signed because he was cheap, young, and M.Lewis likes his upside. The guy led NFL Europe in rushing 2 years ago, he's only 26 years old, a known a willing blocker, and a good special teams player. He was used as a running back and a fullback in Tennessee, and having limitted carries and opportunities avg.'d over 4 yards a carry, 7 catches for 57 yards, and a touchdown. The Bengals want a versatile guy at the fullback position who not only blocks, but can catch passes out of the backfield too. He's not going to be guaranteed the job, as they have two other young FB's on the roster and possible will address the need in the draft, but I don't see how this is such a bad move, considering the marginal $ they spent on him, him only being 26 yrs. old, special teams versatility, and his upside. Also, the FB position is only on the field less than 40% of the time. You all seem to making more of this than you should be.
