A.J. Green—who turns 30 next month—does not appear to feel any urgency to address his own contract situation.
“I signed a deal and I’m comfortable with the deal and I just live with it,” Green told The Cincinnati Enquirer on Sunday. “After that’s up, we go back to the board. I don’t really get caught up in what’s the money like because I signed my deal and it was the highest paid at that point. It’s going to always go up. So you can’t keep up with that.
“…At the end of the day I just want to play football. I got my contract. I’m set for life. Now I can just go out there and play.”
The story was about Green showing support for Julio Jones wanting a new contract, but Green seems to be OK with his situation. As the story said, the two are linked after Green went fourth and Jones sixth in the 2011 NFL Draft.
