3. Isaac Curtis (7,107)
Bengals WR from 1973-1984
With the 15th overall pick in the 1973 NFL Draft, Isaac Curtis out of San Diego State was drafted by the Bengals. Curtis went on to spend the entirety of his 12-year career in Cincinnati. The first four years of Curtis’ career resulted in him making the Pro Bowl and he was always a factor in the offense.
That first year of Curtis’ career was impressive. He hauled in 45 receptions for 843 yards and nine touchdowns, clearly showing why he was a first-round pick from his first year in the pros. He followed that up with fewer yards (633) but more touchdowns (10).
While Curtis never had a 1,000-yard season during his 12-year career, the closest he got was during the 1975 season when he had 934 yards. That was the best season Curtis had during his lengthy career.
Spending 12 years with a team is impressive and it’s not a surprise that Curtis still sits in the three spot in receiving yards.
