Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver AJ Green believes that his team should re-sign young quarterback Andy Dalton in time for the next NFL season in September.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver AJ Green has backed his team to re-sign young quarterback Andy Dalton this season.

The Bengals are currently weighing up whether to offer Green's teammate a new contract, with their wide receiver stating that the team's owners already know Dalton is the player they want to partner him.

"I know they know he's the guy. I feel like they're going to get something done before the season starts," Green told the team's official website.

"A lot of people give him crap about not winning a playoff game, but we've made the playoffs the last three seasons.

"We've won 10 or more games [twice]. Playoff games ... we're still young. I feel like we're going to win them, it just takes time."

The Bengals will get their new season underway when the NFL 2014 campaign begins in September.
