Bengals Wide Receiver A.J. Green A Nomination For Offensive Player of the Year?

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is practically the protagonist in every story, defeating the villain with bubble gum and an infectious grin.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver is having a fantastic season; though strangely performing exactly how we expected due to an overwhelmingly impressive rookie season. He won the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for September is setting a torrid pace to break Cincinnati's single-season record for most yards receiving.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has so much confidence in Green, that he'll willingly throw the football into triple-coverage, shocked when the play results in anything but a touchdown.

Jim Trotter with Sports Illustrated argues that Green should be a candidate for offensive player of the year.

The second-year wideout had his streak of nine consecutive games with at least one TD catch snapped on Sunday, but he still put up 111 yards on three catches. He quietly is becoming a force in a deep pool of elite receivers.

Though a hint of homerism could be intruding the ol' noggin' momentarily, without a doubt Green will be mentioned among many more nominations in the NFL before his career is finished.
