Catch It Like Beckham

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. is the only player in NFL history to record at least 80 catches and 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first three seasons. Beckham will attempt to join Randy Moss as the only players to accomplish the feat in each of their first four seasons.

"Odell Beckham was born to be a wide receiver. He is a special player and he really wants to be great." -- Pro Football Hall of Fame WR Cris Carter.

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. recorded a career-high 101 catches for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, earning his third consecutive Pro Bowl berth.

Beckham is the only player in NFL history to record at least 80 catches and 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first three seasons and joined John Jefferson (1978-1980) and Randy Moss (1998-2000) as the only players to have at least 1,000 receiving yards and 10 touchdown catches in each of their first three NFL seasons. Beckham will attempt to join Moss (1998-2001) as the only players to accomplish the feat in each of their first four seasons.

Beckham's 288 career receptions are tied with Miami's Jarvis Landry -- who played with Beckham in college at LSU -- for the most ever by a player in his first three seasons.
