Practically two years to the day when John Ross lit Lucas Oil Stadium ablaze with a 4.22 40-yard-flee in the NFL Scouting Mix, the receiver is quickly operating out of time in Cincinnati.
The Bengals are procuring Ross after true two seasons with the club, sources told NFL Community Insider Ian Rapoport on Tuesday.
Drafted ninth overall in the 2017 NFL Draft on the ability of that file-breaking 40 time, Ross neglected most of his rookie year as a result of harm, failing to file a single reception. In 2018, Ross bounced relieve rather, tallying seven touchdowns on true 21 receptions for 210 yards over 13 video games done.
If Ross is to be swapped for picks or players, Cincy would be left with starting up wideouts A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd, both of whom are handiest signed by 2019.
It remains to be considered what Ross’ market would be. Of the vast receivers traded in or across the exchange time limit this season, nobody used to be as young as the 24-year-outdated college Ross, build for Amari Cooper. The compensation wasn’t consistent, both: Cooper (first-rounder), Golden Tate (third), Demaryius Thomas (fourth), Josh Gordon (fifth).
Ross is due around $5 million in nasty wage over the subsequent two seasons.
