A.J. Green not willing to settle, will step up again in 2016

Camp report: a birthday and a reunionWhy not? On his 28th birthday Green showed the crowd of 2,325 on the Paul Brown Stadium practice fields Sunday why he’s mentioned in the same breath as the NFL’s top receivers. On the day they broke out the shoulder pads, Green easily broke away during the first day...
