Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was selected third overall by team Carter in the 2015 NFL Pro Bowl.

After Colts QB Andrew Luck went first overall to Team Carter, Cowboys QB Tony Romo went second to Team Irvin, followed by Green. Ironically, Team Carter captain and Steelers rival Antonio Brown was who announced Green's selection.

Green, a fourth-year player, has been voted to the Pro Bowl for the fourth time. He lead the Bengals in receptions (69), receiving yards (1041) and receiving touchdowns (six) despite having missed significant time due to injuries.

In his fourth season, Green registered five 100-yard games, including a career-best 224 on Dec. 7 vs. Pittsburgh, second-most for a game in Bengals history. He set a career high for catches (12) on Nov. 23 at Houston. He also missed Cincinnati's wild-card loss to the Colts due to a concussion suffered in Week 17 at Pittsburgh.

It was Green's first missed playoff game after playing in each of his first three from 2012-14. Including the playoffs, Green has missed just five of a possible 68 games over his first four years in the league.

Green’s four selections ties for second most among Bengals WRs; Chad Johnson had six. Green joins Isaac Curtis as the only Bengals to make the Pro Bowl in each of their first four seasons.
