Ja'Marr Chase quickly answers why he's a better wide receiver than Justin Jefferson
Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson have been 2 of the great young wide receivers to enter the NFL in recent years. And the former LSU stars are in the debate about who’s the best of a increasingly large crop of talented pass catchers.
In an interview with CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco, Chase was asked who’s better, and he didn’t waste any time.
“I would say me of course,” Chase said, and admitted that Jefferson would also say himself. “He knows that’s not true. He stole all my moves and now he went first in the league, and now it looks like his moves. He is going to hear it, he going to call me later.”
Chase last year overcame an early rash of dropped passes to turn in a great rookie season. He broke the single-season franchise receiving record with 1,455 yards and set rookie records for touchdowns (13) and receptions (81) on his way to being honored as the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Jefferson has caught 3,016 receiving yards Jefferson during his first 2 seasons. Last season, Jefferson finished with 1,616 yards in 17 games, and 17 yards short of Randy Moss’ franchise record.
