Green Rising Among Bengals Pro Bowlers

Talented wide receiver in exclusive company with his fifth straight Pro Bowl appearance.

Wide receiver A.J. Green has moved into rarefied air and joined some exclusive Bengals company by being selected to his fifth Pro Bowl.

The fifth-year NFL player has been to the Pro Bowl every season, becoming the first Bengal in history to earn the honor in each of his first five years in the league.

Ahead of Green among Bengals are hall of fame offensive tackle Anthony Munoz with a whopping 11 Pro Bowl appearances, and fellow receiver Chad Johnson and former cornerback great Lemar Parrish with six each.

Munoz holds the Bengals record with 11 straight Pro Bowl appearances, but he didn't make it his rookie season.

Johnson made it five years in a row, but didn't make it his first two years in the league.

Ten Bengals have earned at least four Pro Bowl appearances, including Geno Atkins, who tied for fifth on the list with his fourth appearance this season. Here they are:
