The top receivers in the NFL all capture the eyes of football fans around the nation because of their gifted abilities. Spectacular leaping grabs, stellar route running, toughness, strength and athleticism ascend these players above many in the league. A.J. Green has the innate ability to garner the leagues crown for the best receiver in the game. Newly promoted running backs coach Hue Jackson now offensive coordinator looks to challenge Green to be the best he can be this upcoming season and beyond. Green stated, “He’s always in your face. There is always something you could be working on. That’s the biggest thing with him with me. He’s always on me.”

The Cincinnati Bengals have a fiery coach on the field, and Jackson will not hold back if his best players needs to be challenged. Over his first three seasons, Green is second on the list behind Hall-of-Famer Jerry Rice for the most receiving yards to start a career. Green has 3,833 yards along with 29 touchdowns in his first three years as a Bengal. Now surpassing Calvin Johnson Jr. as the best will be tough, but Green has all tools to challenge his fellow summer workout partner.

When battling each other last season, Green and Johnson both had phenomenal games which resulted in swapping each others jerseys at the end. Green caught six passes for 155 yards and a touchdown. While “Megatron” had nine catches for 155 yards and two touchdowns. With Andy Dalton pushing to be great, and fellow teammate Marvin Jones rising to the occasion as the No. 2 receiver, Green should have a steady support system intact to help him reach the top.
