Davante Adams passes Tim Brown to become franchise single-season receiving yard leader


In Davante Adams' first season in the Silver and Black, he's set a new milestone in franchise history.

The wide receiver now holds the record for most receiving yards in a single season in franchise history, breaking the record of 1,408 yards held by Tim Brown since 1997.

He passed Brown's franchise record on a 45-yard pass from quarterback Jarrett Stidham in the fourth quarter.

It's a full circle moment for Adams, who grew up as a Raiders fan and used to wear the jerseys of many Silver and Black legends, including Brown.

"Growing up, honestly, anything Raiders was what I was about," Adams said in his introductory press conference last March. "I had a Tim Brown jersey, C-Wood, those got worn until the numbers fell off. Rich Gannon, I mean, everything. I'm just looking forward to coming in and trying to leave my footprints as well as I can."

No. 17 made his sixth consecutive Pro Bowl this season and coming into the Week 17 matchup, was tied for first in the league in touchdown receptions (12).
