Green makes dying Bengals fan's wish come true

Cincinnati Bengals Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green wrapped up the first day of voluntary Organized Team Activities on Tuesday with a trip to Mason to visit a fan dying of brain cancer, according to a report from WKRC-TV.

Alex Fulton, of Mason, suffered a seizure last July, and a CAT scan revealed two cancerous tumors that are inoperable. Fulton's last request was to meet his favorite Bengals player, so his wife, Katie, began spreading the word and it eventually got to Green, who showed up at the couple's home Tuesday with gifts that included a jersey, a hat, autographed cleats.

He stayed and visited with the Fultons, signing footballs and posing for pictures.

"It was just so heartfelt," Katie told WRKC-TV. "I don't know if every football player is like that, but he just seemed so genuine and so down to earth, and just a really great guy."
