Alltime reciver in chicago bears history?
Check out his stats, he's amazing
Muhammad was selected by the Carolina Panthers in the second round of the 1996 NFL Draft After two mediocre seasons, Muhammad exploded onto the NFL scene, averaging nearly 1000 yards each season from the 1998 to 2000 NFL season. During the 2001 NFL season, Muhammad was plagued by injuries, but he managed to recover his form the following season. He would later play a leading role in the Carolina Panthers' run to Super Bowl XXXVIII during 2003 NFL season. The Panthers lost to the AFC Champion New England Patriots 29-32.
Muhammad would go on to have an excellent 2004 season, leading the NFL with a career high 1,405 receiving yards, and 16 receiving touchdowns. To compliment this he would also go to earn a Pro Bowl invitation. By the end of the 2004 season, Muhammad held all of the Panthers' receiving records, including catches (578), receiving yards (7,751), 100-yard games (26), the top three single-game yardage totals (192, 189, 179) and was tied with Wesley Walls at 44 touchdown receptions.
Following the 2004 season, Muhammad, who was due a $10 million roster bonus, could not come to contract terms with Panthers, and was released in February of 2005. Hours after his release, Muhammad received a call from the Chicago Bears, who offered the 32-year old veteran a six year contract. Muhammad agreed, and left Charlotte for Chicago.
Muhammad established himself as one of the main receiving threat for the Bears during his first year with the Bears. He has been credited for encouraging a stronger work ethic within the Bears receiving corps. Also, Muhammad shared his sagacious advice to young wide receivers Bernard Berrian, Mark Bradley, and Rashied Davis.
Despite failing to catch several poorly thrown passes from the rookie quarterback, Kyle Orton, Muhammad held himself accountable for the mistakes, and promised reporters he would work to improve his game. However, it should be noted that Muhammad would later be seen complaining to Orton during a Sunday night match up against the Atlanta Falcons. Following Muhammad's criticism, coach Lovie Smith benched Orton in favor of a fully recovered Rex Grossman.
Muhammad emerged as the Bears’ leading receiver for the second consecutive season in 2006. He amassed over 860 yards, including three games where he caught for over 100 yards. Muhammad played a menial role in the Bears' victories 2006 post season victories over the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints, due to the emergence of Bernard Berrian and Rashied Davis. However, he caught a touchdown pass in Super Bowl XLI, which gave the Bears a temporary lead over the Indianapolis Colts. His efforts were in vain, as the Bears lost, 29-17.
Additionally, his catching ability and ball handling skills were almost unmatched on the team; Muhammad caught several poorly thrown passes that would have been likely intercepted at the hands of other Bears’ receivers. He has also been a strong supporter of Rex Grossman, who was criticized by skeptics because of inconsistent play. However, Muhammad’s age has seemingly played an effect on his endurance. Although he played all sixteen games, Muhammad was often listed as probable or questionable days prior to many games. Before the start of the 2006 season, he revealed that he had played through the 2005 season with a broken hand.
Yup, he's the best
