The Top 10 Cleveland Browns Wide Receivers of All-Time

The Cleveland Browns reeled off an offensive dynasty over their first 10 seasons of existence—dominating the short-lived All-America Football Conference from 1946–49, and then for several more seasons after joining the National Football League in 1950. Cleveland was competitive on and off throughout the next three decades, before exploding for another string of success in the late 1980s. Throughout many of those prominent seasons, the wide receiver position was ripe with talent, and many of the team's legends were born during those eras. Only 8 wide receivers in franchise history have logged more than 1,000 yards in a season, and none of them have achieved the feat twice. Many of Cleveland's greats at the position, however, showed remarkable consistency throughout lengthy tenures with the team.

Among the 10 best receivers of all-time are a pair of Hall of Famers who shined in different eras, 3 players who were instrumental in the early success of the franchise, and 2 more who carried the bulk of the load in the 1980s. A handful of other receivers who posted productive numbers at different junctures in franchise history and joined the team's elite are included, too.

Selection Criteria for This List

This is a list of the 10 greatest Cleveland Browns wide receivers of all-time, and also includes a handful of honorable mention candidates and statistics from every 900-yard receiving season in team history. The criteria used to develop this list includes:

  • Legacy Honors (Hall of Fame, Ring of Honor, retired number, etc.)
  • Single-Season Honors (MVP, All-Pro, Pro Bowl, etc.)
  • On-Field Success (league leader, playoff appearances, records, etc.)
  • Longevity (years with Browns, percentage of career with Browns, etc.)

Only games played with the Browns are factored into this list, so while Hall of Famer Tommy McDonald would be a great player to include on a list about the Philadelphia Eagles, his 113 yards over 9 games with the Browns won't make the cut here. For the purposes of this article, players established as tight ends will be excluded (so Hall of Famer Ozzie Newsome is not listed here), but those who played as an end in the 1940s, '50s, and '60s were given consideration. Now, without further ado, let's count down the top 10 receivers in Cleveland Browns history. And since some may have differing opinions because of how closely ranked many of these players are, feel free to chime in with your thoughts on these selections.

10. Braylon Edwards

  • Years With the Browns: 2005–09
  • All-Pro: 2007
  • Pro Bowl: 2007

Braylon Edwards came to the Browns as the third overall selection in the 2005 NFL Draft, and while he was a standout in his five seasons, he never lived up to his draft slot. The talent Edwards brought to Cleveland was sometimes marred by controversy—starting with a holdout for a contract as a rookie and ending with his declaration that he needed a "fresh start" after getting traded to the New York Jets. Push those issues aside, though, and he was a very productive player, who played a big role in one of the best seasons the Browns have had in recent memory.

That season came in 2007, when Edwards had a breakout season to push the Browns to a 10-6 record. That season, he set new team records for single-season receiving yards (1,289) and touchdown catches (16), to become the first Cleveland wide receiver to make the Pro Bowl since 1989. His touchdown mark remains the franchise record, though his yardage total is now second.

Some of his best games included a 3-touchdown effort in a win against the Miami Dolphins in 2007, as well a 146-yard, 2-touchdown showing in a win over the Cincinnati Bengals in 2008. His career-high for single-game yardage was 154, which came against the New York Giants in 2008. In 11 games throughout his 4-plus seasons with the Browns, he caught at least 100 yards in a game, and his totals in Cleveland showed 238 receptions for 3,697 yards and 28 touchdowns.

9. Reggie Rucker

  • Years With the Browns: 1975–81
  • Playoff Appearances: 1980

Reginald "Reggie" Rucker came to the Cleveland Browns via a 1975 trade with the New England Patriots, and he closed out a long career with several impactful seasons. Despite some lingering knee injuries, Rucker missed just 1 game out of 90 during his first 5 seasons with the Browns, cementing himself as a reliable target who posted at least 500 yards every year in Cleveland.

In his first season with the Browns, Rucker led the American Football Conference with a career-high 60 receptions, which at the time ranked fourth in team history. By the end of his tenure in Cleveland, he caught 310 passes, falling short of the team record by 21 receptions. And with those catches, came single-game offensive numbers Rucker hadn't seen early in his career. He had more than 100 receiving yards in a game only twice before coming to Cleveland, where he would accomplish the feat eight times. That included a career-best showing of 177 yards in a 1979 win over the Miami Dolphins, and he also scored three touchdowns in a 1976 season-opening victory over the New York Jets.

Rucker's production faded as knee and back injuries took their toll throughout the 1981 season, and after learning he wouldn't start in '82, he announced his retirement in an emotional press conference. He gained 4,953 yards with the Browns (7th all-time) and caught 32 touchdown passes.

8. Brian Brennan

  • Years With the Browns: 1984–91
  • Playoff Appearances: 1985–89

Brian Brennan's success story with the Cleveland Browns is a good one. Though he was never an electrifying superstar, the fourth-round draft selection became an integral piece of the offense during the late 1980s playoff runs. Brennan was a favorite target of quarterback Bernie Kosar on third-down plays, giving Brennan value that is underappreciated in the grand scheme. That possession-receiver role, however, also frustrated a veteran player who wanted to play more snaps.

Brennan was released by coach Bill Belichick in April 1992, and ended his 8-year career in Cleveland with 315 receptions for 4,336 yards and 20 touchdowns. As a rookie in 1984, Brennan had a pair of touchdowns in a victory over the Houston Oilers, while his best game statistically was a 176-yard effort in a win over the San Diego Chargers in 1986.

In eight postseason games, Brennan caught a pass in all but one, and caught four touchdowns. Two of those scores came in a loss to the Denver Broncos in the 1989 AFC Championship game. Perhaps his most famous touchdown with Cleveland, however, was one scored in the fourth quarter of the 1986 AFC title game. Kosar connected with Brennan on a 48-yard touchdown to take a 20–13 over the Broncos with 5:43 to play. Denver's legendary quarterback, John Elway, then drove his offense 98 yards on the ensuing drive to force overtime and ultimately spoil Cleveland's chance for a Super Bowl appearance.

7. Webster Slaughter

  • Years With the Browns: 1986–91
  • Playoff Appearances: 1986–89
  • All-Pro: 1989
  • Pro Bowl: 1989

Webster Slaughter had the natural talent necessary to become a featured receiver, and did not disappoint the Browns after they selected him in the second round of the 1986 NFL Draft. Slaughter became one of quarterback Bernie Kosar's favorite targets from the get-go, catching a pass in every game of his rookie season.

Slaughter hauled in a 97-yard touchdown in 1989 against the Chicago Bears on one of the longest plays in franchise history. That catch helped him secure a career-high 186 receiving yards in the game. The following week, Slaughter caught 2 more touchdowns and added 184 yards against the Houston Oilers, which gave him 3 straight games with at least 100 receiving yards for the only time in his career. Later in the season, he gained 152 yards against the Indianapolis Colts.

Slaughter had a somewhat unceremonious end to his career in Cleveland, squabbling with the team over his contract before the 1992 season. The team refused to budge on an offer that was below market value, and Slaughter moved on to the Houston Oilers, where he made the Pro Bowl in '93. In his 6 seasons with the Browns, Slaughter caught 305 passes for 4,834 yards and 27 touchdowns. Only once in that span, Slaughter failed to catch a pass in a game he played.

During the playoffs, Slaughter played in 7 games, catching 23 passes for 381 yards and 5 touchdowns. Twice, he was on the receiving end of two touchdown passes in a single postseason game.

6. Dave Logan

  • Years With the Browns: 1976–83
  • Playoff Appearances: 1980, '82

David "Dave" Logan is perhaps the most gifted athlete on this list. He is one of just three individuals to be drafted into the NFL, National Basketball Association, and Major League Baseball. Thankfully for Browns fans, he chose the football offer as a third-round draft pick in 1976.

Logan didn't see much of the field during his first two seasons in Cleveland, but he then became an offensive stalwart for the next several years. Logan started every game from 1978–80, chalking up 56% of his receiving yards during those seasons and helping the Browns end an 8-year playoff drought by qualifying in 1980. By the end of his tenure with Cleveland, Logan had caught 262 passes for 4,247 yards.

What helped further Logan's status as a fan favorite, however, was his penchant for performing well in rivalry games against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The top two single-game receiving marks of his career both came against Pittsburgh—135 yards and a touchdown in 1979, and 131 yards in 1980. He also grabbed 2 touchdowns on 91 yards in another 1979 matchup with the Steelers. All told, Logan had 8 career touchdowns against Pittsburgh, which accounts for a third of his 24 career TDs with the Browns.

5. Ray Renfro

  • Years With the Browns: 1952–63
  • Playoff Appearances: 1952–55, 1957–58
  • Pro Bowl: 1953, '57, '60

Nicknamed "Rabbit" for his quickness and elusiveness, Raymond "Ray" Renfro provided some of the earliest Browns teams with an offensive weapon that could be deployed in many ways. Used as a running back and as a receiver, Renfro averaged a blistering 19.6 yards per reception throughout a 12-year career in Cleveland that left him with the ninth-best Y.P.R. average in NFL history.

Taken in the fourth-round of the 1952 NFL Draft, Renfro didn't see much action until his sophomore season, when he caught a pass in all 12 games. He'd soon blossom into one of the league's best receivers, hauling in at least 100 yards in a game 14 times and scoring in 10 of those. Combined with his rushing yards, Renfro had at least 100 offensive yards in a game another 7 times. His best individual effort came in 1959, when he caught 5 passes for 161 yards and 3 touchdowns in a loss to the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. In 1961, he set a new career-high with 166 receiving yards in a loss to the New York Giants.

Renfro won two NFL championships with Cleveland, scoring twice in the 1954 title game and once in the 1955 championship tilt. In 6 total NFL title games, Renfro caught 13 passes for 195 yards and added 47 rushing yards. For his career, Renfro caught 281 passes for 5,508 yards and 50 touchdowns. His yardage and touchdown totals both rank fourth all-time for the Browns.

4. Mac Speedie

  • Years With the Browns: 1946–52
  • Playoff Appearances: 1946–52
  • All-AAFC: 1946–49
  • All-Pro: 1950, '52
  • Pro Bowl: 1950, '52

Mac Speedie was among the premier receivers during the late 1940s and early '50s, proving to be a worthy target of Hall of Fame quarterback, Otto Graham. Speedie led the league in receptions four times during a seven-year career with the Browns, and he played for a chance at a league title every season. Wins included four AAFC championship games from 1946–49 and the inaugural NFL title game in 1950, though he never caught a touchdown in the postseason.

Speedie and Graham, along with Hall of Fame teammate, Dante Lavelli, combined for one of the finest aerial attacks of their time. Speedie paced the AAFC in receptions from 1947–49, and led the league in receiving in '47 and '49. He gained more than 1,000 yards in each of those seasons, and was the only player in AAFC ever to accomplish that feat. No other Cleveland player would cross the 1,000-yard threshold until 1968. Many attributed Speedie's offensive prowess to his Perthes Disease, which caused his legs to be different lengths and an unusual running style that confused defenders.

Major Individual Highlights

  • Catching the first touchdown in franchise history on a 19-yard pass from Cliff Lewis in 1946.
  • Catching a 99-yard touchdown reception from Graham against the Buffalo Bills in 1947.
  • Setting a then-franchise record with 228 yards in a 1949 game against the New York Yankees.
  • Snaring three touchdowns in a 1951 win over the Chicago Cardinals.

Speedie left the Browns after the 1952 season following a spat with head coach Paul Brown, and he would join the budding Canadian League. While in Cleveland, Speedie caught 349 passes for 5,602 yards and 33 touchdowns. His career yardage total is third in franchise history.

3. Gary Collins

  • Years With the Browns: 1962–71
  • Playoff Appearances: 1964–65, 1967–69, '71
  • All-Pro: 1965–66, '69
  • Pro Bowl: 1965–66

As the fourth selection in the 1962 NFL Draft, Gary Collins began his career with the Cleveland Browns with a lot of expectations. And he didn't disappoint once he was slotted into the starting lineup. He played sparingly during his rookie year, but burst onto the scene in 1963 by setting a new franchise record, with a league-leading 13 touchdowns. In 1964, however, he reached even greater heights.

Though he was passed over as the team's No. 1 receiving target, Collins was still a vital piece to the offense. That was never more evident than in the 1964 NFL Championship game, when Collins caught three touchdowns in a rousing upset of the Baltimore Colts. The game's Most Valuable Player hauled in 130 yards on 5 passes, scoring on jaunts of 18, 42, and 51 yards. He'd score double-digit touchdowns in each 1965 and '66, and led the team in receptions and yardage both seasons. Collins also doubled as the team's punter from 1962–67.

Collins was injured in 1968, but bounced back in 1969 to score at least 10 touchdowns for the fourth time in his career. Further injuries, however, started to take their toll during the ensuing seasons. His production slowed and he retired after the 1971 season as one of the best receivers in franchise history. Throughout 10 years in Cleveland, Collins caught 331 passes for 5,299 yards, and his 70 career touchdowns are still the team's all-time record. In 8 playoff games, he caught 19 passes for 275 yards and 5 touchdowns.

2. Paul Warfield

  • Years With the Browns: 1964–69, 1976–77
  • Playoff Appearances: 1964–65, 1967–69
  • All-Pro: 1964, 1968–69
  • Pro Bowl: 1964, 1968–69
  • Major Awards: Hall of Fame (1983), Browns Ring of Honor

When the Cleveland Browns drafted Paul Warfield in the first round of the 1964 NFL Draft, they converted him to a wide receiver and hoped to produce a star. The collegiate halfback had little trouble adjusting to his new position—launching a Hall of Fame career by helping push the Browns to an NFL championship as a rookie. After six seasons, he was traded to the Miami Dolphins in a surprising decision, but he returned to Cleveland for the final two seasons of his career.

Warfield was one of the fastest men in the NFL, and nearly accumulated 1,000 yards as a rookie. An injury in an All-Star Game caused him to miss all but one game of the 1965 season, though he did play in the NFL Championship game that season and caught two passes. Over the next 4 years, he was one of the top receivers in the league, averaging 21.23 yards per reception and leading the league with 12 touchdowns in 1968. Also, in '68, he set a still-standing team record with 21.3 yards per catch, the best single-season rate in franchise history among receivers with at least 35 receptions.

After five superb seasons in Miami that bolstered his Hall of Fame case, and one season in the World Football League, Warfield came back to Cleveland and started every game in 1976. In total, Warfield played 8 seasons for the Browns, and caught 271 passes for 5,210 yards and 52 touchdowns (third in team history). He excelled in the playoffs, catching 24 passes for 404 yards in 7 postseason games with Cleveland. He was a first-ballot inductee to the Hall of Fame in 1983.

1. Dante Lavelli

  • Years With the Browns: 1946–56
  • Playoff Appearances: 1946–55
  • All-AAFC: 1946–49
  • All-Pro: 1953
  • Pro Bowl: 1951, 1953–54
  • Major Awards: Hall of Fame (1975), Browns Ring of Honor

Dante "Gluefingers" Lavelli established himself as a trusted target in his first season with the Browns, and that was all he needed to become the greatest receiver the franchise has ever seen. Lavelli quickly became the favorite receiver of legendary quarterback Otto Graham, and Lavelli's superb receiving ability helped him lead the AAFC in receptions and yards in 1946. Lavelli remained a fixture with the Browns for the next 10 seasons, helping them win 7 championships.

In the 1946 AAFC title game, Lavelli was on the receiving end of the game-winning touchdown against the New York Yanks. Lavelli continued to be a shining star in the postseason, hauling in 46 passes for 667 yards in 12 games. He had 2 touchdowns and 128 yards on 11 catches in the inaugural NFL Championship game in 1950, which saw the Browns dispatch the Los Angeles Rams, 30–28. Lavelli added a 50-yard touchdown in the 1955 NFL title game when he only caught 3 passes, but gained 95 yards.

In his career with the Browns, Lavelli caught 386 passes for 6,488 yards and 62 touchdowns. All three stats were team records until Hall of Fame tight end Ozzie Newsome broke them in the 1980s, but they all do remain second all-time in the team record books. Late in his career, Lavelli was instrumental in the formation of the NFL Players' Association, which came to fruition before the 1956 NFL Championship game.

Lavelli was a native of Hudson, Ohio, and played college football for Ohio State. He remained in the Cleveland area after his retirement. Lavelli was a staunch believer that statistics and records from the AAFC—such as Cleveland's undefeated season of 1948—should have been recognized equally in the NFL record books. His embodiment of the city and fierce loyalty to the Browns were evident after his death in 2009, when stories of remembrance flowed from local media outlets with regularity.

Honorable Mentions

With so many standout wide receivers in the history of the Browns, there were several players right on the cusp of being included among the top 10. Listed below are several players who left an indelible mark on team history, but didn't quite make the cut.

Josh Gordon

Gordon had the potential to become the greatest wide receiver in the history of the Cleveland Browns, but off-the-field problems led to multiple suspensions during his seven-year tenure with the franchise. After a strong rookie season in 2012, Gordon played only 14 games in 2013, but led the NFL with 1,646 receiving yards, setting a new single-season team record and earning a Pro Bowl selection. Along the way, he became the first player in history to gain 200 yards in back-to-back games, with 237 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and a single-game team record 261 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Over the next 4 years, however, he would play just 10 games as he struggled with sobriety, and after 1 game in 2018, he was traded to the New England Patriots. In 41 games for the Browns, he caught 180 passes for 3,106 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Kevin Johnson

Johnson was the No. 1 target of rookie quarterback, Tim Couch, when Cleveland returned as an expansion team in 1999, and he was on the receiving end of a famous Hail Mary play that gave the Browns their first win of that season. From 1999–2003, Johnson caught 315 passes for 3,386 yards and 23 touchdowns. In 2001, he had a career-high 153 receiving yards against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he caught 2 touchdowns in a game twice.

Michael Jackson

Jackson was a sixth-round draft pick of the Browns but played like a much higher selection during his four seasons in Cleveland. He racked up 2,797 yards and 28 touchdowns on 170 receptions from 1991–95. His single-game career high for yardage came in the season-opener in 1995, when he posted 157 yards against the New England Patriots.

Reggie Langhorne

Langhorne came into the fold for the Browns as a seventh-round draft pick in 1985, carving out a role as the slot receiver in an otherwise crowded receiving corps that helped the Browns into the playoffs in five straight seasons. From 1985–91, Langhorne accumulated 3,597 yards and 15 touchdowns on 261 catches, and in 8 playoff games, he added 26 receptions for 370 yards and 2 touchdowns. In 1988, he had two touchdowns in two different games, and his best single-game yardage effort in Cleveland was a 140-yard game in 1989.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver, Terrelle Pryor, runs up the field after a reception against the New York Giants in 2016. With 1,007 receiving yards that season, Pryor is the most recent Cleveland player to gain at least 1,000 in a season.
