Bengals and A.J. Green haven't started negotiations on a long-term deal

Green is signed through 2014, has a fifth-year option that Cincinnati intends to pick up, and then they could the franchise tag on him in 2016. Essentially the Bengals will have Green's rights for another three years. Discussing A.J. Green's future isn't necessarily on Cincinnati's day-planner just yet.
