Cardinals sign wide receiver A.J. Green to one-year deal

The Cardinals signed veteran wide receiver A.J. Green to a one-year deal, NFL Network reporters reported Thursday. Green had 54 catches for the Cardinals last season for 848 yards and three touchdowns.

Green was only the No. 2 wide receiver for the Cardinals because of DeAndre Hopkins, but he quickly showed his value. With the departure of Christian Kirk, the Cardinals need to ensure they retain a solid wide receiver, and Green fits the bill and is already familiar with the Cardinals’ offense.

In addition to Hopkins and Green, the Cardinals’ wide receiver lineup also includes Rondale Moore and Antoine Wesley. However, who is passing the ball for them is somewhat uncertain. According to NFL Network reporters, Kyler Murray will not play for the Cardinals until he is awarded a new contract.

Green first played for the Bengals and played in 127 games, contributing 649 catches for Cincinnati for 9,430 yards and 65 touchdowns. He joined the Cardinals in the 2021 offseason on a one-year, $6 million contract.
