NFL teams continued to pick up the fifth-year contract options for 2011 first-round draft picks, with Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green, Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson and New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Cameron Jordan the latest to see their deals extended to 2015 on Monday.
NFL Media's Albert Breer reported that the options were officially picked up Monday. Green will make $10.176 million in 2015, Peterson will earn $10.081 million and Jordan's salary comes out to $6.969 million.
All three of these options were no-brainers. The trio should get long-term extensions from their respective teams, although Peterson's deal could be particularly tricky.
