The Bengals have ensured that AJ Green will remain with the team for at least two more years. The best player on the Cincinnati Bengals roster is now locked-up for at least one more year. That's because the team exercised the fifth-year option on wide receiver A.J. Green, which means he has two years left on his rookie contract. Fifth-year options for Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson, Bengals WR AJ Green and Steelers DL Cameron Heyward were officially exercised today. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 21, 2014 Because Green was a Top 10 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the option will pay...

The Steelers are expected to do the same with fellow 2011 first round pick Cameron Heyward. The deadline to do so is May 3. The Cincinnati Bengals will exercise their team option for a fifth year on the current contract of wide receiver A.J. Green, reports Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer. So unfortunately, it appears as if Green will continue on with his career in Cincinnati. This is bad for the remainder of the AFC North. Teams have had the opportunity to exercise their fifth-year option on their 2011 first round draft picks since Dec. 9, and must do so by May 3. The Steelers...
