    Hopkins passes teammate Fitzgerald as youngest player to 700 receptions

    https://arizonasports.com/story/245...zgerald-as-youngest-player-to-700-receptions/

    The Arizona Cardinals’ newest superstar wide receiver has passed the team’s future Hall of Fame wide receiver as the youngest player in NFL history with 700 career receptions.

    DeAndre Hopkins secured pass number 700 in his career at age 28 during the second quarter of the Cardinals’ Thursday night game against the Seattle Seahawks, one year earlier than teammate Larry Fitzgerald’s 700 reception accomplishment at age 29.

    Hopkins also became the fifth player to reach 700 receptions during the first eight seasons of a career, joining Antonio Brown, Torry Holt, Brandon Marshall and Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison.

    It’s the second week in a row Hopkins has entered the NFL record books, as during the thrilling win against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, he became the second player in NFL history with at least 50 receptions and 800 receiving yards in each of the first eight seasons of a career, joining former Cardinal Gary Clark.

    DJ actually had a way better year for Texans than he had the last few with AZ. He was back to 4.7 YPC and almost 10 YPC on receptions. Had a few games where he looked really, really good.

    Still a steal by AZ, though.

    Maybe you want to re-read my post...I didn't compare him, or his year in Texas, to anyone other than his own last couple of years in AZ.
