The Cincinnati Bengals picked up wide receiver A.J. Green's fifth-year option on his contract for the 2015 NFL season, per multiple reports.

The Cincinnati Bengals picked up wide receiver A.J. Green's fifth-year option on his contract for the 2015 NFL season, per multiple reports. 

Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website says the option is worth $10.17 million in his April 21 update

"The Bengals confirmed they had picked up the 2015 option on Green, their right since he was a top-ten pick in 2011. Bengals president Mike Brown said last month at the NFL meetings the team was going to exercise the $10.17 million option. 

"It doesn't preclude them from getting a long-term deal, but Brown said they're trying to get the quarterback puzzle done first since they don't have an option on Andy Dalton and he becomes a free agent after this season."

ESPN's Coley Harvey explains Green's eligibility for his fifth-year option in greater detail. 

"Green was eligible for the fifth-year option because he was the No. 4 overall pick of the 2011 draft. Per stipulations outlined in the latest collective bargaining agreement, players drafted in the first round can be offered a fifth year on their four-year rookie deals. 

"For that fifth season, players taken in the top 10 will be paid the same as what was already slotted for transition tag players at their position.

"Receivers given transition tags in 2014 are slated to make $10.1 million. Green would be similarly compensated in his fifth year, which would officially begin next March. This coming season, Green will be paid $6.3 million on the last year of a four-year, $20 million contract." 

Hobson spoke with Green earlier in the day. The Bengals wide receiver said,"I'm still under contract. That's one thing I don't ever worry about. That business side. I feel I like my body of work speaks for itself. So whenever the time is right, it happens." 

Cincinnati.com's Paul Dehner, Jr. enumerates some of the top 10 players of the 2011 draft who will most possibly have their fifth-year options picked up by their respective teams. Among them are Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers), Von Miller (Denver Broncos), Marcell Dareus (Buffalo Bills), Patrick Peterson (Arizona Cardinals), Julio Jones (Atlanta Falcons), Aldon Smith (San Francisco 49ers) and Tyron Smith (Dallas Cowboys).

Dehner says Blaine Gabbert (San Francisco 49ers, formerly with the Jacksonville Jaguars) and Jake Locker (Tennessee Titans) are the players who will unlikely receive the fifth-year option. 

Green amassed 3,833 receiving yards during his first three NFL seasons, which trails only Randy Moss' 4,163 yards, per The Associated Press' Joe Kay (via Yahoo! Sports). 

The Cincinnati wide receiver continued to flourish in his fourth pro season, recording six 100-yard receiving games in 2013. He also had five consecutive 100-yard receiving games last season, Kay adds. 

Green eventually finished with 1,426 yards in 2013, just coming up 14 yards short of Chad Johnson's team record, according to The Associated Press.

NFL Trade Value, Part 1

Jul 20 2014 11:13pm CDT | Source: Grantland

The 2013 NFL season reminded us that efficiency kills. On the field, despite an arm that would have been laughed out of the combine, Peyton Manning and a near-unstoppable Broncos offense set virtually every passing record by marching their way down the field eight yards at a time. Denver scored 606 points mostly by staying ahead of schedule. The team that eventually managed to shut it down, Seattle, was t ...
