The Cincinnati Bengals have a long history with many great players that have come through their franchise.
They have one of the best wide receivers in the NFL in Ja’Marr Chase.
But before Chase, there was another great wide receiver who played for the Bengals.
With the fourth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Bengals selected wide receiver A.J. Green.
He ended up being one of the best players in Bengals history.
Green played nine seasons with the Bengals where he had 9,430 yards and 65 touchdowns.
He also made seven straight Pro Bowls to begin his career.
Now that his career is over Green has officially retired as a Bengal.
The Bengals Twitter account released a picture of Green signing his one-day contract.
