Cincinnati Bengals rookie wide receiver A. J. Green is one of the reasons the team’s offense is dangerous and explosive.

The 2011 NFL first round draft pick has been rewarded for his stellar play by being named to the AFC All-Star team for the Pro Bowl, which pits the AFC against the NFC on January 29 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Green, who leads all NFL rookies in receptions with 65 and receiving yards 1,057 this season, is the first Bengals rookie selected to the Pro Bowl since WR Cris Collinsworth in the 1981 season.

In addition to Green, a number of Cincinnati players have been named as alternates for this year’s Pro Bowl, including first alternates: DT Geno Atkins, QB Andy Dalton and K Mike Nugent.

The AFC/NFC All-Star teams are based on the concensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts as one-third towards determining the 43-man rosters that represent the AFC and NFC in the Pro Bowl.

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.
