Ravens coach John Harbaugh offered some high praise for Cincinnati WR A.J. Green on Tuesday -- even though he attached two qualifiers.
Harbaugh called Green "maybe the best receiver in football, perhaps" when talking about preparing for his Week 1 opponent. Harbaugh expanded on why he believes Green is in the upper tier of receivers in just his second NFL season.
"You throw a ball anywhere near him and you don't think he's going to catch it and he finds a way to go grab it," Harbaugh said. "He has [an] amazing catch radius. He's big, tall, long. He can get behind a defense quickly."
Green was hurt in the first meeting between Baltimore and Cincinnati in 2011. In the second meeting, Green was held to two catches for 26 yards. The Ravens won both games.
Why Kindle stayed: Deciding to keep outside linebacker Sergio Kindle on the roster was likely one of the last decisions the Ravens made Friday. Harbaugh said the organization still believes it can get production from the third-year Texas product, who suffered a fractured skull shortly after being drafted in 2010.
"He's got some talent, obviously," Harbaugh said. "He's still probably on his way back from a really bad brain injury. I think it's remarkable how far he's come."
Kindle had four tackles during the 2012 preseason.
Harbaugh 'disappointed' Bengals signed Law Firm: When Cincinnati signed running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis this offseason, Harbaugh said he was "disappointed" that he'd have to face The Law Firm twice each year.
"Has he ever fumbled, ever, in his entire career? He never has," Harbaugh said. "He's a north/south, hard running guy, he has great vision. He's another underrated guy throughout the course of his career when you look at production."
Who starts at LG? With rookie Kelechi Osemele telling the media he figures to play a large role on the offensive line this season, Harbaugh stopped short of saying if he or veteran Bobbie Williams will start at left guard Monday.
"I don't think we will be disclosing that at this time," Harbaugh said.
For what it's worth, Williams is listed as the first team left guard on the depth chart Baltimore released Tuesday.
