Ja’Marr Chase responds to people who were concerned about his drops
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase struggled with drops in the preseason, but those mistakes did not carry over in his first ever regular season game. It doesn’t sound like the rookie expects that to change, either.
Chase had just one catch and four dropped passes during the preseason, according to Pro Football Focus. He then caught five balls and did not have a drop in Sunday’s win over the Minnesota Vikings. In an appearance on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” on Wednesday, Chase was asked if he had anything to say to those who were worried about his slippery fingers.

Bengals head coach Zac Taylor downplayed Chase’s drop issue during training camp. Joe Burrow also made it clear he was not concerned about his former LSU teammate’s play.
Chase is expected to have a huge impact this season, which is why many were surprised to see him struggle during the preseason. Fortunately, it was the preseason. None of that matters going forward.
