CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati chapter of the Pro Football Writers of American picked A.J. Green as the Bengals' 2016 most valuable player and Dre Kirkpatrick as winner of the annual "Good Guy" award, the Bengals announced Monday.

While Green played in just nine games due to injuries, he averaged 96.4 yards per game, the best stretch of his career. Green also made four touchdowns before an injury ended his season.

Green's selection was unanimous, according to the announcement.
