The Atlanta Falcons have entered the deep slumber of the offseason. As I’ve remarked more than once, the only news likely to happen between now and the beginning of training camp is a new extension for Julio Jones, a possible new contract for Grady Jarrett, and perhaps some tweaks to the end of the roster. We’ll have to entertain ourselves as best we can until then.

In that spirit, let’s dig into team history and test your collective knowledge of Falcons trivia. Be sure to try to figure out the answer before you scroll down, because you’re collectively pretty sharp and I’m betting the answer will show up quickly in the comments.

Here’s today’s question: Who is the only Falcons receiver to collect four seasons with double digit receiving touchdowns?

This Falcons legend is one of the better receivers in team history, and no other receiver in the hallowed (?) annals of Atlanta footballing has ever had more than two seasons putting up 10 plus scores through the air. The most obvious threat to this man’s legacy is Calvin Ridley, who casually put up 10 TDs (a rookie record) in his first season.

Who is the player?
