Bengals' Green OK with waiting until next offseason for new deal
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/9/15) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green's chances of signing a contract extension before the start of training camp remains slim, according to ESPN. Still, it doesn't seem to bother the fifth-year receiver, who is set to make $10.1 million in the final year of his rookie contract.
"I don't get into all the 'I need a contract' stuff," he said. "I'm not here for money. I'm not broke. So I'm fine. I can wait until the end of the year to get a contract, but I know that time is coming."
If Green doesn't receive a long-term contract at some point, then the Bengals could use the franchise tag on him in March.
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas have yet to sign long-term deals after having their respective clubs use the franchise tag on them. Green is monitoring their situations, but he believes it won't affect him.
"It doesn't say anything about me," Green said. "They're three different teams. Three different people. You don't know what their situation is. All I can do is control what I can do, and that's play football. Everything after that takes care of itself."
Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green not worrying about contract
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was on hand for the team's voluntary workouts Monday and isn't worrying about his contract, according to the team's website.
Green, who is entering a contract season, wants to focus on the upcoming season, not money.
"I handle the part of playing. I'm not hurting for money," said Green. "I got my option. That's enough for now. I'm just focused on football. Next year will take care of itself."
Green is expected to earn $10.176 million in 2015. He also noted he wasn't healthy for much of the 2014 season.
"I was not out there like I need to. I was never 100 percent. I felt like I never played like I should have," Green said. "Yeah, I'm a 100 percent."
Green had 69 catches for 1,041 yards and six touchdowns in 13 games in 2014.
Bengals consider using franchise tag on A.J. Green as 'fallback' option
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green can become a free agent after the 2015 season if no long-term deal can be worked out, but Bengals owner Mike Brown said they will consider using the franchise tag on the Pro Bowl wide receiver, reports Cincinnati.com
"It's a difficult test for us, but we do have the fallback if we need to of using the franchise tag," Brown said. "So, that's one option."
Brown added that it will be expensive to retain Green using the tag and they will have other potential free agents to lock up as well.
"We don't know yet where we are going to end up but we have tried to prepare ourselves for it some by holding back on cap expenditures this year which can be rolled over into next year," he said. "That will give us a little bit more potential to make deals."
A.J. Green, Jermaine Gresham head Bengals' inactive list
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(1/4/15) The Bengals will be without top wideout A.J. Green (concussion) and starting tight end Jermaine Gresham (back) for Sunday's playoff game at Indianapolis. They combined for 1,501 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns this season.
With those key targets out, quarterback Andy Dalton figures to rely on running backs Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard and wideout Mohamed Sanu.
Also inactive for Cincy are quarterback AJ McCarron, defensive back Chris Lewis-Harris, offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson, defensive lineman Devon Still and wideout James Wright (knee).
Cincy is a 3.5-point underdog as Dalton looks for his first playoff win in four tries.
Bengals rule out wide receiver A.J. Green for Sunday against Colts
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/3/15) The Bengals have declared wide receiver A.J. Green as out for Sunday's Wild Card game against Colts. Green was considered doubtful for the game with a concussion on the team's final injury report of the week.
Green played in 13 games for Cincinnati during the regular season, totaling 69 catches for 1,041 yards and six touchdowns. The Bengals will down to wide receivers Mohamed Sanu, Brandon Tate, Greg Little and Cobi Hamilton for their matchup with the Colts.
The Bengals are currently 3 1/2-point underdogs against the Colts Sunday.
|Finishing as the 21st best wideout in Fantasy last season might make some people shy about drafting A.J. Green, but you shouldn't be one of them. He disappointed when it came to his final stats, but he effectively played in 11 games due to various injuries. If you average the stats from the 11 games he actually played in, he averaged 6.2 catches and 94.6 yards per game with a touchdown in better than half of his outings. That's better than the season-long averages for T.Y. Hilton and anyone on the Lions. So let's not rush to throw A.J. Green aside, especially since he's in a contract year and knows he'll have a case to be the highest-paid receiver in the game with a monster season. Bank on him going off draft boards between 15th and 20th overall as a No. 1 Fantasy receiver.
