Veteran receiver A.J. Green, one of the most prolific players in franchise history over his 10 years with the Cincinnati Bengals, is finalizing a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals that is worth up to $8.5 million, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Wednesday.

The deal includes $6 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN.

The Cardinals are a team on the rise in the NFC. Quarterback Kyler Murray making an impression and quickly becoming one of the best players in the league. As well as with Murray coming into his own, the Cardinals were able to acquire superstar wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins last season. This also turned out to be a game-changer for the struggling NFL franchise.

With Hopkins as the main option in the passing game and Green helping draw attention away from the superstar, the Cardinals’ offense could be as dynamic as ever. The Green-Hopkins duo could quickly become the best in the league, with Murray primed for an MVP-caliber season.

In 16 games with the Bengals last season, Green hauled in 47 receptions while racking up 523 yards and two touchdowns.

Although it wasn’t close to one of Green’s best seasons, he can bounce back in 2021 on a better all-around team with championship aspirations.
