No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t put this on one or the other of these guys. They both had elite seasons, worthy of being deemed the top offensive weapon on the team. Jacobs has already gotten his due as the owner of this year’s rushing title, so let’s talk about Adams.
In his first year in Silver & Black, he set a franchise record with 1516 receiving yards. And in case you were wondering, yes, he did surpass Tim Brown’s previous franchise record in 16 games.
Brown’s record was 1,404 yards and Adams had 1,443 yards in 16 games. He also set a new franchise record with eight 100-yard games in a season and his 14 TD receptions were second most.
