Cincinnati Bengals WR AJ Green Doesn't Believe He is Elite


Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green has been in the league for 2 seasons and he has caught every fan’s eye. He has been making spectacular plays on offense left and right and is already considered one of the league’s elite players.

Don’t ask AJ Green that question though. He doesn’t think he is there:

“No. I’m not there yet,” Green told Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com. “This is only my third year, and I have a lot more learning to do. The biggest thing at this position is consistency — to keep getting better each year and don’t regress — and that’s my goal. I’ve been in the league two years, so I still have a lot of time. When I get to Year 6, maybe then I can say I’m one of those receivers.” – NFL.com

Not there yet? There aren’t many receivers in the league that I would take over him.

2.400+ yards, 162 receptions and 18 touchdowns in his first two seasons in the league and he doesn’t think he is reached the elite status.

I love the attitude. He is going to keep putting in work. With that attitude, the sky is the limit for Green. Green and Calvin Johnson are competing for the honors of top receiver in the league. Calvin has the title right now, but Green should be at the top of the list soon.

Who else in the league would you rather have? Or is even close?
