The 32-year-old Green, who was drafted by fourth overall by the Bengals in 2011, is coming off a down season with just 523 receiving yards and a pair of touchdown catches.
While Green has dealt with a flurry of injuries over the past couple of seasons, he's shown he can be a dominant force at the position when healthy.
Since 2011, Green has used his towering 6-foot-4 frame to rank second in touchdown catches caught from 20+ yards, per PFF.
Over the course of his career, Green has hauled in 649 receptions for 9,430 yards and 65 touchdowns.
As for their longtime stalwart at the position in Larry Fitzgerald, could this signing foreshadow a potential retirement is on the horizon?
