Poll: AJ Green or Calvin Johnson?

New, comments

Johnson hold the NFL record for the most receiving yards in a single season (1,964 yards in 2012).

As the above tweet states, a pair of All-Pro receivers will be featured on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2014 finale tonight. With only 10 players left to be named, Bengals receiver A.J. Green is assured of a top-10 spot, as is Detroit Lions wideout Calvin Johnson.

They combined for 182 catches, 2,918 yards and 23 touchdowns last season, with Megatron having missed one game.

Johnson hold the NFL record for the most receiving yards in a single season (1,964 yards in 2012). He also set the NFL records for consecutive 100-yard games (8) and consecutive games with 10 or more receptions (4). Megatron also tied Hall of Famer Michael Irvin's record for most 100-yard games in a season with 11.

Green has caught more passes (260) than any other player in NFL history during their first three seasons. He set new career highs in 2013 for receptions (98) and receiving yards (1,426, the second highest total in Bengals history), while also scoring 11 touchdowns last season. Green also had six 100-yard games, including a franchise record five in a row.

Johnson has been to four Pro Bowls and named to four All-Pro teams, while Green has made three Pro Bowls and made two All-Pro teams.

At this point, you really can't go wrong picking either guy, and they both figure to be No. 1 and 2 again this coming season in terms of the NFL's best receivers.
