Cincinnati Bengals: The Stakes are High to Extend A.J. Green

The Cincinnati Bengals ensured A.J. Green will be in stripes for the 2020 season, placing the one year, $18 million franchise tag on the star wideout.

This move was expected, as negotiations between the two sides were likely put on hold while the collective bargaining agreement was being decided upon. With the CBA being ratified just yesterday, it left little time for serious extension talks.

Green has stated that he does not want to play under the franchise tag and the uncertainty that comes with it. Rather, he’d prefer to stay in Cincinnati long term.
