All-time receiving yards leaders in Cincinnati Bengals history
2. A.J. Green (9,430)
Bengals WR from 2011-2020
With the fourth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, A.J. Green became a Bengal. He was the perfect addition to the offense and showed that right off the bat with 1,057 yards and seven touchdowns.
The next two years were even kinder to Green, as he went over 1,300 yards receiving in 2012 and over 1,400 yards receiving in 2013. Both seasons saw him find the end zone 11 times each.
Six of Green’s first seven seasons resulted in 1,000-yard seasons and the only time he didn’t reach the mark was in 2016 when he missed six games. Even with him missing six games, Green still came damn close to hitting that mark, coming up 36 yards shy of 1,000 that year.
Green reached the Pro Bowl in each of his first seven seasons but by 2018, the injuries started to pile up more and his production declined. He missed the entire 2019 season due to an ankle injury and while he was mostly healthy in 2020, he wasn’t the same player anymore and that was it for him in Cincinnati.
It’s hard to deny just how dominant A.J. Green was during his Bengals career but there’s one player ahead of him on the all-time receiving leaders list.
