WR A.J. Green with Marvin Lewis, head coach of the BengalsIt appears Braves pitcher Derek Lowe isn’t the only professional athlete in Georgia with a weakness for Porshe’s new Panamera 4S sport sedan.  Well, we assume that new Cincinnati Bengals wideout A.J. Green — the fourth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft — hasn’t fully moved out of Athens yet, but it should be a smooth ride when he does.

Here’s a nice video of the former Georgia Bulldog standout picking up his “hard” wheels at a dealership not too far from Athens — about a month ago.

Yeah, so for all of you out there thinking about trying out at your favorite franchise’s mini-camp this weekend — and I know there’s at least handful of ya — consider this your public service announcement for the day foreseeable future.

Rumor has it that during Holt’s days at N.C. State he used to tie one arm behind his back during receiving drills. That may or may not help explain things. 

Either way, I’m adding this revelation to an already long list of reasons why I haven’t made a living catching a lot of balls.  Make the jump for a clip of Torry discussing his “trophy” of a finger at a recent Jaguars press conference.
