Bengals looking to deal John Ross

The Cincinnati Bengals are looking to deal wide receiver John Ross, according to a report. He has spent the last two seasons with the team. 

With head coach Zac Taylor running the show now, he is going to bring in players, who he thinks will work well with his system. The former No. 9 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft reportedly doesn’t fit what he’s looking for.

It is not clear exactly what the Bengals are seeking in return for Ross. It will probably be a middle-round pick. 

The 24-year-old Long Beach, California native was a disappointment in his rookie season. He appeared in just three games with one start. He did not catch a single pass. 

He did, though, have one carry for 12 yards. Ross fumbled the ball on that play. 

This past season, he appeared in 13 games, with 10 starts. He had 21 receptions for 210 yards and seven touchdowns. 

Ross was targeted 58 times during the 2018 season. He either dropped or did not catch 37 passes. 

He also had four carries for nine yards. In total, he had 25 touches in his sophomore season for 219 yards and seven touchdowns.
