NFL Notes: Bengals, Earl Thomas, Seahawks



Bengals WR A.J. Green says he still has “a lot in the tank” and no plans to slow down now that he’s in his thirties.

“I ain’t an old man,” Green said, via the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I’ve always got juice. I’ve had it for a long time. I’m not going anywhere any time soon.

“I feel good,” Green added. “I’m one of the oldest guys, but I run the most of anybody in practice and I feel great/op. I put a lot into my body on and off the field that really gets me ready for the next day.”

Earl Thomas

  • Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times writes that there’s no thought the Seahawks will eventually cave and open negotiations with holdout S Earl Thomas.
  • Instead, Condotta says that Seattle appears to be more than happy to allow things to play out for as long as Thomas is willing to stay away from the team.
  • Sources have told Condotta that there is no current negotiating between the team and Thomas right now.
  • As for a potential trade, Condotta expects the Seahawks to continue to listen to any offers for Thomas, but indications are that there hasn’t been as much interest as many anticipated.


Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner mentioned during an appearance on The Rich Eisen Show that RB Chris Carson has really stood out during training camp.

“There’s a difference when Chris Carson runs the ball,” Wagner said, via “He just stands out to me. Every time you watch film, whether it’s him out of the backfield or running the ball, he stands out to me.

“I felt like we kind of got a glimpse of that last year; unfortunately he got hurt. So I’m excited to see how that looks 16 games. He looks really, really strong and he looks like he’s on a mission.”
