Report: Contract extension talks haven’t started between the Bengals and A.J. Green

a.j. greenThe Cincinnati Bengals will most certainly exercise the fifth-year option on A.J. Green’s contract.  The only question now is when will they sign him to a long-term extension?

According to ProFootballTalk.com,  the Bengals and Green haven’t started working on an extension yet.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, talks on an extension for Green have not yet begun.  The fourth overall pick in 2011, Green has a strong argument that he deserves the contract now that he didn’t get three years ago under a rookie wage scale aimed at preventing busts from sucking millions out of the system.
