After getting an extension of his own, Tyler Boyd has high hopes that he won’t be alone in that department.
“A.J.’s not going anywhere,They won’t let him go. They love him here. He’s an all-time great here.”
Its clear that the Bengals love A.J. Green, as their focus has shifted to getting a deal done with him. Keeping Green is crucial for this franchise. He is not only an icon for the city and team, he is one of its most important players.
Comimg into his rookie year back in 2011, Green’s Bengals had rock bottom expectations. Green was fine with the expectations, but he wouldn’t settle for the same results. A.J. was the face of the 2011 Bengals as they shocked the NFL world and made the playoffs at 9-7. He was a rookie phenom and put up highlight reels week after week.
Fast forward to 2019, Green is known as one of the leagues top wide outs who consistently makes the pro bowls and demands attention from the defense. Losing that kind of production on offense will be a devastating blow to the Bengals.
From hearing the buzz out of the Bengals and their players, it seems as though a Green extension is close. Everyone and their grandparents want it to happen, now its time to get it done.
