A.J. Green thinks a long-term extension can happen before the franchise tag

“That’s not me. I just want to play football,” said A.J. Green on whether he'll sit out. “I’m not in any rush.

Green will be significant.

The amount of money tied to a long-term extension is enough to momentarily pause (and ask)... is he really worth it?
