UGA's Green will make NFL decision after Liberty Bowl

Posted: Updated:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Georgia receiver A.J. Green says he will sit down with his family after the Liberty Bowl on Friday to discuss whether he should enter the NFL draft.

Green, a junior, was Georgia's leading receiver this season despite being suspended the first four games of the season for selling a bowl jersey to an agent.

He spoke with media Tuesday ahead of Georgia's Liberty Bowl game against Central Florida in Memphis.

Green says he will announce his decision "probably somewhere around" Jan. 10 or Jan. 11, and that Georgia coach Mark Richt will be "the first one to know." Green says winning a championship and reaching personal goals would be reasons he'd return to Georgia for his senior season.

Green had 49 catches for 771 yards and nine touchdowns in eight games.
