Bengals WR Green passes Collinsworth’s rookie receiving yardage record

Cincinnati Bengals rookie A.J. Green is starting to become the new star at wide receiver now that Chad Ochocinco is gone.

The quiet rookie from the University of Georgia caught 2 passes for just 25 yards in Sunday’s 23-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals, but it allowed him to pass fan-favorite Cris Collinsworth for the franchise record for rookie receiving yards.

Green now has 1,031 yards to eclipse the 1,009 that Collinsworth, currently a broadcaster for NBC, amassed in 1981.

Collinsworth still holds the record for receptions by a rookie with 67. Green currently is at 63 and has a chance to tie or even pass that mark this week against the Baltimore Ravens.
