Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has publicly supported his Atlanta Falcons counterpart, Julio Jones, who is holding out for a new contract.

However, Green is perfectly happy with his own deal.

"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 recently 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. So you can't keep up with that."

Green's contract pays him an average of $15 million per season, which was the highest amount at the time he signed the deal. Jones averages $14.25 million per season. Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown currently makes the most money on average per year at $17 million.

Green has just two years remaining on his deal. Jones is signed through 2020.

"For me, I just keep everything simple," Green said. "I really don't try to get into all that other stuff. At the end of the day I just want to play football. I got my contract. I'm set for life. Now I can just go out there and play."

Last season, Green made 75 catches for 1,078 yards with eight touchdowns. For comparison's sake, Jones had 88 receptions for 1,444 yards with three touchdowns, and Brown made 101 catches for 1,533 yards with nine scores.
