Most people would name Jerry Rice the best wide receiver of all-time without much hesitation.
However, Seatle Seahawks star receiver DK Metcalf is not most people.
In a recent interview on the “All Things Covered” podcast, Metcalf shared his top five wide receivers of all time, with a shocking choice for the number one spot.
Metcalf, known for his exceptional talent and athleticism on the field, named ANTONIO BROWN as the greatest wide receiver of all time, ahead of legends such as Rice, Randy Moss, Lance Alworth, Terrell Owens and many others.
Metcalf’s unconventional pick has raised eyebrows and sparked debate among football fans and analysts. While opinions on the greatest wide receiver ever may vary, it is commonly argued that Rice and Moss are often regarded as the top contenders for the title, especially Rice.
However, Metcalf’s decision to place the ultra-controversial Brown in the number one spot is a major head-scratcher that has been met with a ton of backlash.
His complete list was as follows…
#1. Antonio Brown
#2. Randy Moss
#3. Terrell Owens
#4. Jerry Rice
#5. Julio Jones

There’s no denying that Brown was phenomenal during his six-year peak from 2013 to 2018 when he had 686 receptions for an impressive 9,145 receiving yards and 67 touchdowns.
These remarkable numbers average out to a yearly receiving line of 114 receptions, 1,524 yards, and 11 touchdowns.
Brown was named to the Pro Bowl team in each of those six seasons.
However, we all know how the Antonio Brown story went from there…
