Don’t look at what happened off the field, let’s just look at pure production. Is Antonio Brown a Hall of Famer?
I want to dig deep into this matter and see what you all think about this subject.
Antonio Brown earned seven 1,000-yard seasons, 12,235, and 79 receiving touchdowns, and did all of this while being one of the most consistent receivers in the league, in terms of his yards per target.
If we look at the receiving leaders Antonio Brown has more receiving yards than Charlie Joiner, Michael Irvin, Don Maynard, Calvin Johnson, Lance Alworth, Raymond Berry, Charley Taylor, Harold Carmichael, Fred Biletnikoff, John Stallworth, Cliff Branch, Paul Warfiled, Tommy McDonald, Don Hutson, Bobby Mitchell and Drew Pearson, all who are in the Hall of Fame.
If Antonio Brown was to never catch another pass, he would currently ranked 24th All-Time in the NFL. The only two active players with more receiving yards than AB are Larry Fitzgerald and Julio Jones.
Brown’s body of work certainly shows that he is worthy of being considered as a Hall of Famer. He ranks fifth in career receiving yards per game, 21st all-time in NFL history in receptions and 24th in both receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.
Through a player’s first 10 seasons, Browns ranks sixth in receptions (while playing the fewest game of anyone in the top 15) and ninth in receiving yards. This is especially impressive considering Brown barely played as a rookie, appearing in just nine games. In his 10th season, he appeared in just one game.
We are always going to remember Antonio Brown for running off the field during the middle of a game, but let’s just look at stats alone. Is Antonio Brown an NFL Hall of Famer?
If he never takes another snap today, he is a seven time Pro Bowler, a Super Bowl Champion, a 4x first team All-Pro and was the NFL receiving yards leader and receptions leader twice in his career. He was named to the 2010’s All-Decade Team, and finished his career with 928 receptions for 12,235 receiving yards, adding 128 rushing yards and 2,934 return yards. He finished his career with 88 total touchdowns. With him saying yesterday, on Twitter he would like to retire a Steeler, this became a hot topic for me. I want to know what you think.
