With the addition of Eifert in the passing game, and high expectations for Gresham, Sanu and Marvin Jones, one would think that with all this offensive firepower, A.J. Green might get lost in the shuffle.  This could not be more wrong.  Green is intent on improvement and he is definitely more focused on the few passes he dropped than the 97 he held onto.  Look for these pieces to take the pressure away from Green and create more one on one match-ups.  Green is the kind of receiver who is most definitely open in a one on one coverage scheme. 

A.J. Green has by far been the most consistent player on the Bengals since 2011.  Drafted 4th overall, he has lived up to and exceeded any and every expectation set, and look for more of the same in 2013.  Green should be able to eclipse 100 catches, exceed over 1500 yards and catch at least 13 touchdowns this coming season.  The Bengals will have a few important decisions to make following the 2014 season as who to sign and who to possibly let go.  A.J. Green will hopefully not even make it that far, and the Bengals can sign him to a long term deal, making him and his unstoppable hands a Bengal for life.
