08:08 AM ET 08.03 | The conversation about the NFL's best receivers essentially begins and ends with a "big three" in Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald. By December, it will be at least the Big Four. I predict Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green will make it that way. "I definitely want to be mentioned with those guys," Green said. ... The race to be the next elite receiver looks to be a battle between Green and Atlanta's Julio Jones, who also showed well as a rookie last season after being a high first-round pick in 2011. The two know each other and spent time together in Atlanta this offseason. It's a friendly competition, but Green said it's a competition. "It's nice that we came in together," Green said.
