When free agency opens, Tom Brady and Drew Brees, two of the most accomplished players in NFL history, are set to become the most intriguing free agents on the market. Don't, however, sleep on seven-time Pro-Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green as someone that will be one of the most coveted assets available this offseason.

Across parts of eight NFL seasons, Green, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, has hauled in 602 passes for 8,907 yards and 63 touchdowns. A healthy Green has pretty consistently been one of the top five wide receivers in the NFL.

Of course, Green has pretty consistently been banged up - if not injured - during his NFL career. A toe injury limited him to just eight games during the 2018 season. He didn't play a single game in 2019 after tearing ligaments in his left ankle in Training Camp. Of a possible 64 regular season games over the last four seasons, Green has played in just 35.

Green will turn 32 next August. In theory, a healthy version of him could still prove to be one of the most valuable additions this offseason. It's also possible, though, that his body won't allow him to be consistently effective anymore, which makes signing him to a lucrative free-agent deal a risk.

With the pros and cons of potentially signing Green acknowledged, here are five teams that could potentially sign the accomplished wideout this offseason:
