He needed a whopping 243 yards to break Detroit’s Calvin Johnson’s record of 1,964 yards receiving, which was set in 2012.
“I’m just so happy for him, so proud of him,” Ryan said. “He’s the best teammate you can possibly ask for and it was fun to be a part of it.”
Jones was not real excited about the season he posted.
“I just do what my team asks of me,” Jones said. “I just try to go out there and make plays, and I’m going to try to do better next year. Jerry Rice is a great receiver, I feel like he’s the GOAT (greatest of all time), but I don’t have anything to say about passing his record.”
Jones clearly wasn’t happy with the 8-8 mark.
“That we didn’t finish the way we wanted to finish this year,” Jones said. “We got hot then couldn’t find a way to win a game. The effort was there, but we just couldn’t get over the hump. We’ve been playing pretty well the last two games, and this game right here was more so us playing for each other.”
