Cincinnati (OH) - t's easy to see why the Bengals star pass catcher has caught the Packers attention. Cincinnati's AJ Green, a two-time Pro Bowler in his first two seasons, will be a priority for Green Bay's defense on Sunday.
"We're very aware of him," said Packers head coach Mike McCarthy. "He's definitely part of our emphasis."
Through the first two weeks of the season, individual receivers have had standout days against Green Bay: Anquan Boldin in San Francisco and Pierre Garcon in a losing effort for Washington.
"[Green is] one of those guys you have to keep an eye on," said linebacker Clay Matthews. "Whether that means doubling him, making sure we have our best players on him, taking him away in certain schematic coverages, that's what we're going to have to do."
In the past, the Packers would assign cornerback Tramon Williams to shadow the other team's best receiver, including stints following Calvin Johnson and Brandon Marshall. This year, the Packers have opted to largely have Williams play the left side of the defense, Sam Shields on the right; though they still move around.
Asked if he missed the assignment of tailing the other team's top target, Williams seemed in indicate those days could return.
"It's still early, you never know what happens," said Williams. "[Those good receivers] are still out there. We have a good group of guys in this secondary who can play at a high level, so, we'll see."
