A.J. Green

A.J. Green is a super star period. Ever since his rookie season A.J. has been part of the Elite group of wide receivers. The last time Cincinnati had a top five pick in the NFL Draft they selected A.J. Green out of Georgia. In his rookie season he caught 65 passes for 1,057 yards and 7 touchdowns. In his second and third season his catches went up to 97 and 98, his yardage went up as well to 1,350 and 1,426 and his touchdowns went up to 11 in both seasons.

In 2014, A.J. Green’s stats were at a all time low, but still showed that of an elite wide out. If it wasn’t for injuries that kept him out of 5 games including the playoff loss, A.J. would of had his regular numbers. His 2014 numbers were 69 receptions, 1,041 yards and 6 touchdowns.

A.J. Green is one of the best players in the league and definitely one of the best in the AFC North. Just ask the Pittsburgh Steelers after Week 14 when A.J. Green went for 224 on 11 receptions.
