Bengals | Cincy discussing new deal with A.J. Green

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:17:54 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green is talking with the Bengals about a possible contract extension, according to sources. The team sees signing Green to an extension as their top priority.

Fantasy Tip: Green has been one of the better receivers over the past several seasons and will not hold out this year if he does not have a new contract. Green should be selected in one of the first few rounds of drafts this season.

Bengals | A.J. Green thanks Demaryius Thomas

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 18:36:06 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said during a press conference Friday, July 17, that Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green contacted him shortly after Thomas signed his new deal to thank him.

Fantasy Tip: Green has already said he plans to play out the final year of his deal without worrying about an extension, but Green clearly knows that Thomas' new deal has set a starting point for his next contract. Expect Green to be a top five receiver this year as he tries to drive up his value as much as possible before heading to the negotiation table.

Bengals | A.J. Green will play without deal

Tue, 14 Jul 2015 13:18:51 -0700

Updating a previous post, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green has decided to play the 2015 season without a new contract.

Fantasy Tip: This comes as no surprise. Green had mentioned previously he didn't want to make his contract an issue, so he has elected to avoid talking about it. He will still be a No. 1 WR threat in a lot of fantasy leagues.

Bengals | A.J. Green not concerned about contract

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 09:20:46 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said he is not worried that he is entering the final year of his contract and is willing to play out the season. "I don't get into all the 'I need a contract' stuff,'" Green 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."

Fantasy Tip: Green will not allow his contract situation affect his play this season, and he should continue to be one of the top receivers in the league and in fantasy leagues. Green likely will be selected in one of the first few rounds of drafts and could be a No. 1 WR for owners.

Bengals | A.J. Green wants extension, not in rush

Mon, 25 May 2015 19:32:26 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green would like to sign a contract extension with the Bengals and the team would like to sign him to an extension. Green currently has a fifth-year option worth $10.2 million, which would make him the largest cap hit on this season's team. With next season's strong class of free-agent wide receivers, whichever one signs first, is likely to be surpassed by the rest.

Fantasy Tip: Green will enter 2015 as a top-10 wide receiver who should benefit from the contract year. Despite Andy Dalton's flaws at quarterback, Green excels as the focal point of the Bengals' offense. That said, Green will likely benefit from signing with another team, if it comes to that.

NFL | Potential 2016 free-agent WR class stout

Wed, 20 May 2015 09:28:45 -0700

The upcoming group of potential free-agent wide receivers includes four of the positions most dominant players, including Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green and Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, according to Spotrac.com. All four players are engaging in contract discussions on some level with their current teams.

Fantasy Tip: While it looks impressive on paper, the reality of any of these guys hitting the open market seems extremely low, let alone the idea of all four of them at the same time. Nevertheless, each one has something extra to play for in 2015, which only helps their fantasy value, all things being equal. Each player makes for a fine WR1 to build a fantasy team around.

Bengals | A.J. Green not worried about contract

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:34:07 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said he's not in a hurry to get a new deal done, even though he's in the final year of his current contract. "I'll just focus on football, and everything else will take care of itself."

Fantasy Tip: Green is one of the top receivers both in the NFL and in fantasy football when he's healthy. He should be in top-five fantasy wide receiver contention again this year, although erratic play from Andy Dalton could stunt his full potential.
