The Bengals could have the best receiver in the NFL.
Or so says ESPN First Take analyst Skip Bayless. After Green impressed in his first couple of pre-season games, in which he caught some balls that looked to bad passes, Bayless has become a believer. Green is entering his sophomore season this year and was named a pro-bowler his rookie year, becoming one of the few rookies to do it in NFL history.
Bayless, on his Twitter account, posted the following tweet: "I'm starting to think that in this year, including playoffs, A.J. Green could prove to be the best receiver in the NFL. Blew by Asante for 6." Those are of course bold words, even for a receiver as talented as A.J. Green.
No disrespect to Green, but if you had to pick the best receivers in the game, you would take Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and perhaps even Brandon Marshall before you take A.J. Green. But he has tremendous upside and could soon climb the receiver ranks, so Bayless may not be completely off here with his prediction.
