Joining Dre Kirkpatrick at his camp is WR James Wright. The Bengals hope Wright will be able to contribute this season after he missed all of 2015 with a knee injury. He says he feels OK. We'll soon see. Wright could play a key role in the Bengals' ability to set their WR rotation behind A.J. Green.

Tony Dungy is first with 139. Third on the list? Marvin Lewis, who currently has 112. Lewis' seven career playoff appearances also is one short of Green's eight.

As he looks at a fractured America, A.J. Green hopes to raise his soon-to-be-born son the way he said his parents reared him. "It's about respect and the morals and the value of life. And treat people how you want to be treated," he said Thursday. The Bengals WR was inspired by the speech Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul gave at Wednesday's ESPYs.

At his youth camp in Cincinnati today, A.J. Green (in orange) happily reported that after dealing with contract uncertainty last offseason, his mind is at ease this summer. "It's just, go out there and play. I'm here for the next five years so I'm good."
