The news that the Chiefs re-signed wide receiver Dwayne Bowe to a five-year deal worth $56 million, with $26 million guaranteed, got me thinking about A.J. Green and what we can expect for him when the team's able to extend his contract. Of course, they can't extend his contract until next season, but with what Green has been able to do on the field in his first two seasons leads me to believe he is, without a doubt, one of the top five receivers in the league.
While there's no question that Bowe is talented, he hasn't produced the way that Green has. He hasn't even been close. Green has 2,407 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns over the last two years while Bowe has 1,960 yards and eight touchdowns. Now, the argument could be made that Bowe's lack of production is a product of poor play at the quarterback position and he has had great seasons, especially in 2010.
However, If Green has another big year in 2013, there's no reason to believe that his contract will need to be bigger than Bowe's. How big, though?
Let's take a look at some of the other top-payed wide receivers in the league.
