Behind Enemy Lines: A.J. Green Draws Comparison To Hall Of Famer
By on October 4, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has quickly established himself as one of the league’s premier perimeter threats, seemingly popping up on most unofficial “top-5 receiver” lists.

After having success covering Larry Fitzgerald, Sean Smith may get a chance to match wits with Green, a player whom Cincinnati head coach Marvin Lewis said is making one of the quickest jumps to full-fledged difference maker of anyone he’s ever coached.

“I’ve only seen it once in my career, and he’s still playing,” Lewis told the South Florida media in a conference call. “I kind of made the comparison last year with A.J. in training camp that he was the best young player I’d been around since Ray (Lewis). I’m glad he continued to prove me right on that.”

The Dolphins beat the Bengals 22-14 in 2010, but each team will start a different quarterback, running back and wide receiver this weekend.
