3. Homer Jones
Homer Jones comes in at third on this list for more than one good reason. For instance, Rob Gronkowski was not the first one to invent the football spike. Jones was actually the first player to ever spike the ball after scoring a touchdown. In addition to being a model for NFL players today, Jones was a two time Pro-Bowl selection.
Jones’ had his best season in 1967, recording 49 catches for 1,209 yards. He had an insane average of 24.7 yards per catch and also lead the NFL in receiving touchdowns with 13. He was second in the league in rushing and receiving yards behind the line of scrimmage that same season. Jones also still holds a franchise record of 13 touchdowns in a season. In his entire career, Jones hauled in 224 receptions for 4,986 yards with an average of 22.3 yards per catch and 38 touchdowns.
