The Cincinnati Bengals and the NFL's Pro Bowl usually don't go together. The Pro Bowl is basically a popularity contest in which fans vote for their favorite players to play in an all-star game and, for the most part, Bengals players are only popular among Bengals fans. Case in point: Andrew Whitworth in 2010.

However, according to Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson, A.J. Green, the Bengals exciting first-round draft pick, has recently accumulated enough votes to move into third place at the wide receiver position. As of Wednesday, Green has received 462,273 votes, which is enough for him to be the third wide receiver on the AFC team. He's behind the Patriots' Wes Welker (896,198) and the Steelers' Mike Wallace (742,206).

Green is on pace to finish the season with 1,203.6 yards and he is currently leading all rookies in receiving yards (891) and in touchdowns (7). Among all AFC wide receivers, Green has the seventh most yards and he's tied for the third most touchdowns.

It would be nice to see Green get into the Pro Bowl to give us Bengals fans something to watch. It would also be a solid rookie season for Green to launch a fantastic career from. You can vote for Green (and every other Bengals player) on the Official 2012 Pro Bowl Ballot here. You can vote as many times as you would like which means you have no excuse not to vote every second of every day until the Pro Bowl.

And just in case you forgot why Green is receiving Pro Bowl votes, here's a little video to refresh your memory (please..... disregard the music).

Now go vote.
