Seven-time Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green thanked the Bengals' organization, the Brown family, fans and the Cincinnati community in a heartfelt message via Instagram on Wednesday as he heads to the Arizona Cardinals on a one-year deal reportedly worth up to $8 million.
"Wow.. my time with the Cincinnati Bengals has come to an end," the message reads. "What an amazing journey it's been. I'd like to thank the Bengals organization for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to live out my dreams. It was truly an honor to wear those stripes. Thank you to the Brown family. I'm forever grateful. To the fans - it's been 10 incredible years! You've been such an inspiration to me. Thank you for the continuous support and motivation. Seeing the stadium filled with fans rocking my jersey each game meant more to me than one can imagine. I was proud to represent y'all! It's luv for life! This community has been so good to my family. THANK YOU for the beautiful memories. Wishing you all the best!"
"I love A.J. and everything he has meant to this organization," Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said earlier on the Bengals Beat Podcast.
