Julio Jones becomes fastest receiver in NFL history to gain 10,000 yards

CLEVELAND -- Julio Jones continues his assault on the NFL record books.


In the second quarter of the Falcons' game against the Cleveland Browns, Jones gained his 10,000th career receiving yard. Jones reached that milestone in his 104th game, which is faster than any other player in NFL history.

The previous record holder was Calvin Johnson, who reached 10,000 receiving yards in his 115th game. That Jones needed 11 fewer games than Johnson speaks to his all-around ability as a receiver and his role in one of the NFL's most productive offenses.

Entering Sunday's game, Jones had the second-most receiving yards in the league with 933 yards on 60 catches.
