Bengals' A.J. Green makes NFL Top 100 Players of 2015

New, comments

A.J. Green is easily the Bengals' best offensive weapon. That's helped him make the NFL Top 100 Players list every year since its inception.

Cincinnati is finally on the board in the NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2015 show.

On the show in which the players themselves rank the 100 best NFL players, wide receiver A.J. Green was voted the No. 37 player in the NFL. As of now, Green is the Bengals' lone representative on the list, and it looks unlikely at this point another member of the team makes it.

Green has now been ranked on the show in each of the past four years, climbing from 77th after the 2011 season to 16th in 2012 and all the way to No. 9 last year. He's established himself as one of the best receivers in the game while also rising into the 'elite' tier of NFL players.

Green, a fourth-year player, was also voted to the Pro Bowl for the fourth time this past season. He led the Bengals in receptions (69), receiving yards (1,041) and receiving touchdowns (6), despite missing significant time due to injuries. Including the playoffs, Green has missed just five of a possible 68 games during his first four years in the league.

In his fourth season, Green registered five 100-yard games, including a career-best 224 yard game on Dec. 7 vs. Pittsburgh, earning the second-most yards for a game in Bengals' history. He set a career high for catches (12) on Nov. 23 at Houston.
