Biographical Info

One of the best wide receivers in NFL history, Jerry Rice is the all-time leader in most major statistical categories for wide receivers, including receptions, touchdown receptions and yards. Rice holds over 100 NFL records, the most by any other player. After a successful college career at Mississippi Valley State, the San Francisco 49ers drafted Rice with the 16th pick of the 1st round in 1985. Rice would make an immediate impact as an NFL rookie, as he won the UPI NFC Rookie of the Year award in 1985. Throughout his career, Rice was a 10 time Associated Press First Team All-Pro and a 2 time Associated Press Second team All-Pro, a 13 time Pro Bowler, 1995 Pro Bowl MVP, and a 2 time Associated Press NFL Offensive Player of the Year winner. In addition, Rice is a 3 time Super Bowl Champion (XXIII, XXIV, XXIX) and was the MVP of Super Bowl XXIII. After leaving the 49ers in 2000, Rice would play with the Oakland Raiders, with whom he won an AFC Championship with and enjoy brief stints with the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos before retiring in 2005. In addition to being a leader in several major statistical categories, Rice has also been rated the Greatest Player of All-Time on The Top 100 NFL’s Greatest Players, named to both the 1980s and 1990s NFL All Decade Teams, had his number 80 retired by the 49ers and inducted into both the College Football Hall of Fame (2006) and the Pro Football Hall of Fame (2010).
