“It’s a tough thing to do when you’re talking about some guys that have played some really good football around the league,” Kupp said. “A lot of guys that I’ve learned from and been able to talk to and just learn a lot from. It would be cool, though.”
In terms of receptions and receiving yards, Kupp finished just five receptions shy of breaking Michael Thomas’ NFL single-season record set in 2019 and 18 yards shy of shattering Calvin Johnson’s NFL single-season record set in 2012 – but that was still good enough for second-most in a single season for each category in NFL history.
Kupp finished as the league leader in receptions by 22, receiving yards by 331, and receiving touchdowns by two. On his way to those totals, he also broke the Rams’ franchise single-season records for receptions and receiving yards, surpassing Isaac Bruce’s 117 receptions for 1,791 receiving yards in 1995. He was one touchdown shy of matching Elroy Hirsch’s franchise single-season record for receiving touchdowns.
