Rice has the most impressive resume of anybody who’s ever played the position. For his career Rice had 22,895 receiving yards. That’s nearly 7,000 more than the guy who’s number two on the list, who will remain nameless because...

Focus on Calvin Johnson doesn't mean success for Detroit Lions' other receivers
