One thing you know about T.J. Houshmandzadeh is he will get open, and once he’s open, catch the ball. At 6-1, 200 pounds, he’s the big receiver the Seahawks have been looking for. He still has enough speed and quickness to create separation, yet he can use his body to shield defenders from the ball in tight situations, and has great ball skills.
A look at his numbers over the past four years proves his value as a possession receiver. Houshmandzadeh leads the league in receptions over he last four years with 372. That’s right — more than Larry Fitzgerald (368) and Steve Smith (351). Terrell Owens? Not in the conversation (262). Wes Welker? Hasn’t done it for long enough (319). Hines Ward? Nope (295).
It’s an impressive statistic, made more impressive by the fact he’s scored 32 touchdowns during that time, only six less than Fitzgerald. Check out the list below.
