Bengals will now look to extend A.J. Green; How much does he deserve?

greenAfter learning that Andy Dalton had agreed to terms on Sunday, per Peter King of, coach Marvin Lewis immediately texted wide receiver A.J. Green to set the wheels in motion for contract talks. I love that Lewis was hurrying to lock up his star wide out. 

The Bengals exercised Green’s fifth-year option for 2015 in April, tying him to Cincinnati for $13.236 million over the next two seasons. In other words, his contract situation is not as pressing as Dalton’s was entering the final year of the quarterback’s rookie deal.

The biggest question is how much can Green land? He is definitely worth 10 million a year, but will he become the highest paid wide out?  Mike Wallace landed a 60 million dollar deal and Green is way better than him.  It will be interesting to see what he can land.
