A.J. Green better than Mike Wallace?
ESPN’s AFC North Blog recently ranked the top 5 receivers in the AFC North, with Cincinnati’s A.J. Green coming out on top. The number 2 and 3 spots were Pittsburgh’s Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown respectively, while 4 and 5 went to Baltimore’s Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin. Sadly for the Browns, they had no receivers on the list. Here’s what they had to day about Wallace and Brown:
“2. Mike Wallace, Steelers: He finished first among division wide receivers with 72 catches and 1,193 yards receiving, which shows he has outplayed his rookie contract. Still, in his last seven games, he averaged 46.4 yards and scored two touchdowns. Ben Roethlisberger’s injuries likely factored into Wallace’s slump, but it will be up to Wallace to prove that.
3. Antonio Brown, Steelers: Remember when there was a debate whether Brown or Emmanuel Sanders should start for Hines Ward last November? Not anymore. He’s fast, elusive and fearless in making catches over the middle. Brown is the No. 2 receiver for the Steelers but he could be the top one on many other teams.”
