Wide receiver A.J. Green agreed to a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday.

Financial terms were not disclosed by the Cardinals, who saw fellow wide receiver Christian Kirk sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency. Kirk caught 77 passes for 982 yards and five touchdowns last season with Arizona.

The Cardinals still have three-time All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins and promising Rondale Moore as wideouts.

Green, 33, recorded 54 catches for 848 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games (nine starts) last season, his first in Arizona.

A seven-time Pro Bowl selection, Green has 703 receptions for 10,278 yards and 68 touchdowns in 143 career games (134 starts) with the Cincinnati Bengals and Cardinals.

The Bengals selected Green with the fourth overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Georgia.
