A.J. Green getting respect in 'Madden'

According to the popular "Madden NFL 12" video game, Cincinnati Bengals rookie receiver A.J. Green is expected to have a pretty good season.

Green, the No. 4 overall pick, earned a respectable 80 rating by EA Sports, which was the fourth-highest ranking for first-year players. Only Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson (82), Buffalo Bills defensive lineman Marcell Dareus (82) and New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara (81) received better ratings.

The Bengals expect Green to be a franchise cornerstone and replace veteran receiver Chad Ochocinco in Jay Gruden's West Coast offense.

"Madden NFL 12" will be released next month.
