I have heard that Bengal fans aren't that content with Gresham so I had a couple of questions for you guys. If you're the Bengals GM:
1. Would you trade Gresham?
and
2. What compensation would you be looking for?

And I mean realistically. Obviously, you'd love a 1st round pick. But realistically, what do you think he's worth? I'm just curious.

A second if possible but I would be happy with a 3rd or 4th tbh. He sucks at blocking and catching. His only positive is being big...

Orlovsky has too much experience here. Manziel doesn't stand a chance.

Gresham ain't goin anywhere IMO. He's due $975k next season, $2M+ in 2014, so they'll give him another season as he's still quite cheap.

Alot of folks have been quick to jump all over Dalton for todays loss, but if I had to pick the single most disappointing guy today it would be Gresham.

Given the display today v HOU, why would anyone want to trade for him ?

He does disappear in big games when he's not dropping balls.

Then why would anyone consider giving up a 4th for him?

He's not being traded when his value is at an all time low.

Drafted with a first round pick, and i don't think the team would consider moving him for anything less.

Gronk had a serious back problem coming out, and at that point, with the medical staff doing what they were doing (see:Bryant, Antonio) I would have passed on him. heck I would have taken Dez bryant at that point, but with his attitude, I might be happy that we didn't.

Yes, I know Gronk had his physical problems, but Gresham will forever be compared to him, because he was selected ahead of him........

I wanted Dez.

Dez and AJ in the same offense would have been deadly.

Of course changing draft picks in one year forever alters the course of the franchise, so drafting Gronk or Dez probably means no AJ.

Probably has the most shaky hands on the team. I wouldnt say he's a bad blocker though. The only great plays i can think of which involved Gresham was that slant in Cleveland and a screen pass in San Diego (i think that was last year). Oh and that TD that was taken away in Baltimore.

The fact of the matter is this team is going to be in tact with Dalton, Green, Gresham for a while. They need to step up or we're going to keep getting embarrassed on national TV.

TBH, if we took Dez we probably wouldnt of taken Green. Could have drafted Gabbert instead... Shocked

He isn't going anywhere but it is clear to me he isn't panning out. He is a solid far from spectacular player
