Bengals receiver A.J. Green supports the effort of Falcons receiver Julio Jones to get a new deal. Green won’t be needing the support of Jones or anyone else in an effort to do the same.
I think the biggest thing for me, I’m always comfortable with stuff I’m doing – I signed a deal and I’m comfortable with the deal and I just live with it, Green told the Cincinnati Enquirer. After that’s up, we go back to the board. I don’t really get caught up in what’s the money like because I signed my deal and it was the highest paid at that point. It’s going to always go up.

If Conklin is on the field, that would represent a recovery time of less than eight months. That’s pretty fast for an ACL tear, so it would seem more likely than not that the Titans will have to open the season without Conklin, who so far has yet to miss a game in his two-year NFL career.
Conklin has attended Organized Team Activities and minicamp but hasn’t done more than walk around watching. It may still be a while before he can go.

And it could have been worse. Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reported that Clete Blakeman also auditioned for the NBC gig that went to McAulay. If ESPN hadn’t hired Triplette (who already had retired, and who many fans won’t miss), maybe Blakeman would have gotten one of the three recently-filled network gigs.
