Struggling WR Green wants to remain with Bengals

Seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green has spent his entire NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Green, 32, said Thursday he’d like to remain with the club as opposed to be swapped prior to the trade deadline on Nov. 3.

“I think we’re building something special here and I just want to be a part of the team and help us win,” Green said of the Bengals (1-3-1), who visit the Indianapolis Colts (3-2) on Sunday.

Green has struggled in his return from missing all of last season due to an ankle injury. He has 14 receptions for 119 yards in five games, including one catch for three yards over his last two.

By comparison, Tyler Boyd leads the team in receptions (32) and receiving yards (362) while rookie Tee Higgins has a club-best two touchdown catches. Higgins also has 16 receptions for 214 yards.

Green has 616 receptions for 9,026 yards with 63 touchdowns in 116 career games since the Bengals selected him with the fourth overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft. His touchdown total is four shy of Chad Johnson’s franchise mark.
