(ESPN) – Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle set an NFL rookie record for receptions in a single season on Sunday against the New England Patriots, reeling in his 102nd catch on the fourth play of the game.
Anquan Boldin previously held the record, set in 2003, when he caught 101 passes for 1,377 yards and 8 touchdowns in 16 games with the Arizona Cardinals.
Miami drafted Waddle sixth overall in 2021, pairing him with former University of Alabama teammate Tua Tagovailoa.
He was voted the Dan Marino Team MVP by local media this week, and his teammates said they noticed his talent as soon as he stepped on the field for his first practice.
