New York Jets: 25 Greatest Players In Franchise History; All-Time Team


9. Wesley Walker, WR #85

  • 1977-1989
  • Ring of Honor, 1-Time 1st Team All-Pro, 2 Pro Bowls, 2nd All-Time in Receiving

Wesley Walker, the man they called “Cyclops,” amazingly had sight in just one eye.

That didn’t stop him from turning into one of the greatest Jets in franchise history.

Walker finished his Jets career second in franchise history in receiving yards with 8,306 and receiving touchdowns with 71.

Upon his arrival in 1977, Walker quickly established himself as one of the top receiving threats in the league. He led the NFL with a 21.1 yards per catch during his rookie year and backed it up in 1978 by leading the NFL in receiving yards (1,169) and yards per catch (24.4).

Walker will forever be remembered as one of the best Jets threats, and deep threats of all-time.
