Bengals WR A.J. Green told reporters Sunday he can’t see himself playing anywhere else besides Cincinnati.
“I can’t see myself playing anywhere else or playing in a different city,” Green said via NFL Media’s Jeremy Bergman. “Hopefully I can be here for a couple more years. We’ll see on that part.”
Green is entering the final year of his contract in 2019. Although his name has come up occasionally in trade rumors, the Bengals “absolutely” would like to re-sign Green.
Green, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Bengals back in 2011. He’s entering the final year of his five-year, $70.176 million contract that included $26.75 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary $11.97 million in 2019.
Green landed on injured reserve last season after undergoing surgery for torn ligaments in his toe.
In 2018, Green appeared nine games for the Bengals and caught 46 passes for 694 yards receiving and six touchdowns.
