CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals have exercised a 2015 contract option for receiver A.J. Green, letting them turn their focus to an extension for quarterback Andy Dalton.
Green was the fourth overall pick in the 2011 draft and was entering the final season on his deal. The collective bargaining agreement allows teams to exercise a fifth-year option on players taken in the top 10 in the draft. They have to pay him the average of the top 10 receivers in the NFL.
Dalton was taken in the second round in 2011, so he's not subject to an option year. His deal expires after this season. Dalton said during an offseason workout on Monday that the Bengals have talked to him about an extension.
