Four teams had a wide receiver and a tight end make the Pro Bowl a season ago. That list includes the Bengals, who got a monster first NFL season from rookie WR A.J. Green and increased production out of second-year TE Jermaine Gresham. Green, already one of the game’s most feared big-play receivers, has a very bright future, but don’t overlook Gresham, who hauled in 56 passes for 596 yards and six TDs in 2011. We’re told that Gresham, who’s just 24 years old, has room yet to improve. There's some sentiment inside the club that Gresham has the potential to be a standout dual threat at the position, consistently excelling as a receiver and a blocker. Said head coach Marvin Lewis in June: “Jermaine going to the Pro Bowl last year was the best teaching, coaching experience we could ever have with him for him to mature. He's a different man — very, very confident in himself.”
