The Cincinnati Bengals have another member of the NFL’s Top 100 Players of 2019 ranking.

Checking in at the 58th overall spot is none other than wide receiver A.J. Green. He’s now been on the annual ranking, which is largely influenced by NFL players, in every season since coming into the NFL in 2011.

However, this was one of the lowest spots he’s been in since his rookie season, as he’s typically been among the league’s top 25 players. But to be fair, Green did only appear in nine games last year after a toe injury cut his season short.

Now entering ninth year in the pros, Green finished 2018 with 46 receptions for 694 yards (15.1-yard average) and six touchdowns this season. He finished 2017 with 75 catches for 1,078 yards and eight scores.

Green joins defensive tackle Geno Atkins as the lone Bengals to make it on this year’s ranking. Which other Bengals do you think should have made it into this ranking?
