In a sit-down interview with legendary Cincinnati Bengals quarterback now of CBS Sports and New York’s WFAN Boomer Esiason, current Cincinnati signal-caller Joe Burrow credited his former teammate and seven-time pro bowler A.J. Green for helping him adjust to the NFL.

“He doesn’t talk a lot, but when he does, you listen,” Burrow told Esiason. “A.J. helped me a lot at the beginning.”

Green, who was drafted by the Bengals with the fourth-overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, reached seven Pro Bowls, and was named Second-Team All-Pro twice in Cincinnati, played with Burrow last season before the rookie suffered a season-ending knee injury.

Burrow and Green did not get into too big of a rhythm together ,as Green’s most productive day with Burrow throwing to him came in a loss to the Colts that saw the wideout make eight catches for 98 yards.

This season, the 33-year-old has turned back the clock as a member of the Arizona Cardinals as he’s made 15 catches for 248 yards and two touchdowns while catching passes for Kyler Murray and the undefeated Cardinals.
