Ranking the Falcons' five all-time best receiving performances 

ATLANTA –Julio Jones and Roddy White share most of the Falcons' record book when it comes to the various receiving records.

White owns two franchise records: Most passes caught in a career (808) and receiving yards (10,863) earning him a spot in the Falcons' Ring of Honor. White will become the 11th member and will be inducted on Dec. 8 when the Falcons host the Carolina Panthers.


Jones is on pace to eclipse both of White's records and doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon. In terms of single-season records, Jones owns the records for most passes caught in a season (135 in 2015) and receiving yards (1,871 in 2015).

Let's take a closer look at some of the top receiving performances from Jones and White through the years:

The Pro Bowl wide receiver caught 12 passes on the day.
