Ja’Marr Chase of Cincinnati Bengals established himself as one of the most explosive wide receivers in the NFL during his rookie season last year, but the fifth-overall pick may not have even been the best player on his team at the position.
Just ask Trent Taylor.
Sure, Taylor caught just two passes in four games last season.
But like Chase, the former Louisiana Tech star once led the NCAA in receiving yards.
He did so with 1,803 yards back in 2016. Chase had 1,780 in 2019.
Taylor sent a very sarcastic tweet on Wednesday implying that the college stat proves he is a better player than Chase.
Some people think Ja’Marr is a better WR than me.. but numbers don’t lie https://t.co/cuAB90fjHP

The man makes a very strong case.
Chase made some eye-popping catches in the biggest moments last season, but did he have over 300 catches and over 4,000 yards receiving during his college career? No, he did not. Taylor will always have that on him.
