A.J. Green wants to play seven more years

Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green has his sights set on a long, productive NFL career that extends well into his mid-30s with the target being seven more seasons.

Green, who was a first-round pick by Cincinnati in 2011, has just six seasons under his belt, meaning he hopes to at least double his career production.

In 86 career games, Green has racked up impressive totals across the board: 481 receptions for 7,135 yards and 49 touchdowns. He missed six games last year after a hamstring injury took him out of the lineup but is in great shape heading into his seventh NFL campaign.

Cincinnati added speedy wideout John Ross, who broke the combine record for fastest 40 time, in the first round of this past draft to support Green going forward. It’s going to be interesting to see how the two of them work together this year, as both can stretch the field and take short passes for long gains.

If Green can play seven more seasons and can play at the same high level we’ve grown to expect, then he’ll be a player worthy of Hall of Fame consideration when his five years of waiting are up.
