Hines Ward is a beast in so many different ways.
He has the ability to deliver a punishing block as easily as catch a touchdown. Incredibly, despite the psychical nature of his game, he has lasted for 14 seasons. In this, the twilight of his stellar career, he achieved a milestone that nobody ever thought he would achieve back when he was a 1998 3rd round draft pick: 1000 catches.
Those 1000 catches have only been achieved by 7 other players in NFL history. They are:
- Jerry Rice – 1549
- Tony Gonzalez – 1149
- Marvin Harrison – 1102
- Chris Carter – 1101
- Tim Brown – 1094
- Terrell Owens – 1078
- Issac Bruce – 1024
- HINES WARD – 1000
Congratulations to Hines on the 1000 catches and what should be a Hall of Fame career.
