He even scored 68 receptions for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns in his rookie season. His first four seasons were some of his best, during which he surpassed 1,000 receivers and became one of the few three NFL players to have got past 1,000 yards.

His sheer size helps him in terms of being a physically dominant, solid player, who can get past other, smaller, defensive players.
At 0.8 m, he has quite a long arm, which helps him make touchdowns with ease. He is only the ninth person to have scored over 1,000 yards in a game, ever since the AFL and NFL merged in 1970.
