Who Has The Most 1000 Yard Receiving Seasons In New York Giants History?


The New York Giants are one of the NFL‘s oldest franchises and they have had a number of very successful eras too. Usually, in terms of their offense though, they have been seen as primarily a running team. They have had good quarterbacks and receivers over the years though and one of the best ways to measure how good of a year a receiver had is to see how many 1,000 yard seasons they had.

Through 2010, who then has the most 1,000 yard receiving seasons for the New York Giants?

A number of players have crossed the 1,000 yard mark for the team once during their career, including Steve Smith, Hakeem Nicks, Lionel Manuel, Mark Bavaro, and Earnest Gray.

One man has put together two 1,000 yard seasons for the G-Men, Plaxico Burress.

Two players have strung together three 1,000 yard seasons for New York and they both did it in consecutive years, Del Shofner from 1961 to 1963 and Homer Jones from 1966 to 1968.

One man stands above them all though. The player to have the most 1,000 yard receiving seasons for the New York Giants is Amani Toomer with five. He accomplished this in five straight years too, 1999 to 2003.
