One of the best players in the history of the NFL, Adriel Jeremiah Green, better known as AJ Green, is a wide receiver of American football. He plays for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League (NFL).
He was a three-sport athlete in football, basketball, and athletics, and has proven to be a star in every arena. After a high school career lined with numerous awards and prizes, he was considered one of the best national football prospects in the 2008 class and was ranked number one in the list by Sports Illustrated.
AJ played college football at the University of Georgia from 2008 to 2010 and was ranked fourth overall by the Bengalese in the 2011 NFL Draft. However, he did not end his college career without setting unbeatable records and receiving awards, as has become normal for him.
Some of his fine college records include SEC in Reception Courts, with the third-highest total in UGA school history in his first year, being voted All-SEC’s first team by Associated Press, the coaches of the SEC, ESPN, Phil Steele, and Sporting News, and completing the three seasons he played in, with 166 receptions for 2,619 yards and 23 touchdowns.
AJ Green’s Net Worth
AJ Green has compiled the Forbes list of the highest-paid athletes. It is no surprise, however, considering his outstanding performances and extraordinary contributions to the Bengalese. He is a Bengal with a certain something and has proven his form time and time again during the years he has played in the NFL.
A look at his contracts and sponsorship agreements will certainly open your eyes to how much he earns and how high his net worth is. After his 2011 draft, he signed a four-year contract with the Cincinnati Bengals. The entry-level contract has a whopping $19,688,098, including a $12.8 million in signing bonus. This at least explains the value the player is betting on. Towards the end of his contract, the Bengals would not risk leaving him for another team, which is why they extended his contract by four years in September 2015.
As expected, his skills and expertise have increased over the years and his value has also risen. The new contract was sealed with a $60 million contract fee, more than double the rookie contract he signed. This includes a signing bonus of $15 million and a $6 million bonus paid in March 2016, in addition to his base salary of $11.75 million in 2015.
Together, the wide receiver is worth $35 million. Its income from sponsorship contracts is also added to his wallet. He earns over $500,000 through brand sponsorship and sponsorship of products like Nike and the energizer Rockin Refuel.
