Jarvis Landry’s 343rd career catch on Sunday set an NFL record for most receptions over the first four years of an NFL career.\
The record-breaking reception came from Jay Cutler in the third quarter of Sunday night’s 26-23 game against the Raiders. With his catch, Landry surpassed former Arizona Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin.
“It’s a tremendous feeling,” Landry said. “It’s something that I feel like I can’t be proud of with the loss, I’d rather take the win, but it’s definitely a milestone for me and I’m proud of myself.”
Boldin recorded 342 receptions in the first four years of his career, and former teammate Larry Fitzgerald is third with 330 catches in his first four seasons. Landry is already at 344 receptions, and he still has nearly half of his fourth season to play.
Landry’s biggest game came earlier this season against the Los Angeles Chargers, when he caught 13 passes, the second-most receptions in a game in Dolphins history.
Landry has established himself as Cutler’s favorite target this season. His 56 receptions places Landry second in the NFL, behind only Antonio Brown who’s caught 57 passes. Last season, Landry finished seventh in the NFL with 94 receptions. For his career, Landry’s 344 catches has resulted in 3,481 yards and 17 touchdowns.
