A.J. Green Named To All-Rookie Team

Cincinnati Bengals rookie wide receiver A.J. Green was voted into the Pro Football Weekly/Professional Football Writers of America All-Rookie Team, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy. Green was the only Bengals rookie to make it on the list as quarterback Andy Dalton was beat out for a spot by Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

Green is the first rookie wide receiver to have a 1,000-yard season since Marques Colston racked up 1,038 yards in the 2006 season. Green also broke the Bengals' franchise record for most receiving yards in a rookie season, a record which was previously held by Cris Collinsworth and had not been broken since 1981.
