After missing last season with torn ligaments in his ankle, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green will remain with the team through at least the 2020 season. On Monday, the team placed a franchise tag on A.J. Green which will pay him roughly $18.5M next season.
With Green remaining in Cincinnati, the team can now focus on building a potential team soon-to-be quarterback Joe Burrow, who is expected to be drafted with the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Alongside Green are offensive weapons such as John Ross III and Auden Tate.
