CBS Sports - [Full Article]

A.J. Green is the latest game-changing wide receiver to earn a substantial pay raise. With the Bengals' regular-season opener just two days away, the 27-year-old has agreed to a four-year, $60 million extension, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Green, who was in the final year of his rookie deal, joins Julio Jones, Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant, all wideouts receiving new contracts in the weeks leading up to the 2015 season. Jones signed a five-year, $71 million deal while Bryant and Thomas inked five-year, $70 million deal. The specifics -- like guaranteed money and yearly payments -- of Green's contract remain unknown at this time.
