Sterling Sharpe was a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time First-Team All-Pro for the Green Bay Packers during his seven-year NFL career, which unfortunately ended early due to a neck injury in 1994. Along with quarterback Brett Favre, Sharpe formed one of the most prolific tandems in NFL history from 1992 to 1994, connecting for 314 receptions, 3,854 yards and 42 touchdowns. Sharpe’s 595 career receptions and 65 receiving touchdowns were second only to Jerry Rice during that timeframe. Sharpe was the first receiver in history to post at least 300 receptions in a three-season span and first player with consecutive 100-catch seasons. He also holds the NFL record of 34 consecutive games with at least four receptions. Sharpe led the NFL in receptions three times and touchdown receptions twice, and also won the “Triple Crown” leading the league in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns in the same season. The older brother of Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe, he also led the NFL in 1994 with 18 touchdown catches, and broke the league’s single-season receptions record in 1993 with 112.
