Historic Rookie Season for Justin Jefferson


Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson broke the NFL record for the most receiving yards in a single season by a rookie during the Super Bowl-era. The Pro Football Hall of Fame collected the gloves worn by Jefferson and the game ball caught to surpass the previous mark held by Anquan Boldin (1,377 yards). Both were used during the Vikings’ 37-35 victory over the Detroit Lions on Jan. 3, 2021.

Jefferson finished the 2020 season with 1,400 receiving yards. His gloves and the game ball are now on display for visitors in the Hall’s Pro Football Today Gallery.
