Before the start of the 2013 NFL season, Steve Largent's 819 career receptions had him ranked #21 in NFL history. Since then, Jason Witten and Andre Johnson have passed him and it won't be long before Wes Welker, Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith, and Larry Fitzgerald leap frog him too.
In fact... it's very likely that by the end of the season, Largent will be off of the NFL's top 25 all-time receptions list.
But once upon a time... Steve Largent was the NFL's All-Time Reception Leader. And at the time of his retirement, he was also the career leader in touchdown receptions and receiving yards. It's been almost twenty-four years since he caught his final pass, but he still ranks 7th in TD receptions and 14th in receiving yards.
Most importantly... he's #1 on my all-time favorite wide receivers list.
What about you...
Who's your favorite wide receiver of all-time?
Go Hawks! Go Pack Go!
Happy Sunday and sayonara!
