A.J. Green told NFL Network he's hoping quarterback Andy Dalton receives a contract extension. "We came in together and that is the great thing for me and him," Green said. "I know he's my guy. I don't want any other quarterback throwing me the ball.
Green expressed this sentiment Friday and as we noted then, he and Dalton are not just tight on the field, but off as well. The Bengals should definitely take note of the relationship when they are making decisions on contracts. Keeping Green happy will be important as he is a game-breaking player. That's not to say that he won't be able to work with another quarterback, but if the Bengals don't have to make a change, perhaps they shouldn't. It's not like Dalton isn't a strong quarterback. He's just not at the elite level.ANALYST: Howard Bender
MLB/MLBPA panel is deadlocked over whether Josh Hamilton should be sent to rehab.
Hamilton's fate rested in the hands of four people, and the votes were split on whether or not to send the former All-Star to rehab. Hamilton was known to have failed at least six drug tests as a minor leaguer and was suspended from baseball from 2004 to 2006. He is in the third year of a five-year, $125 million deal and the Angels are hoping that he is on the field. He has been a bust since inking this contract and he is worth no more than a last round draft pick, especially with this relapse news. Analysis: Colby Conway
