3 Texas A&M alumni wide receivers combine for 21 touchdowns in 2023-24 NFL regular season

Texas A&M may not have the most alumni playing wide receiver in the NFL but the ones that are in the league certainly produce points and the statistics back that up.

Mike Evans, Josh Reynolds and Christian Kirk combined to total 21 touchdowns during the 2023-24 NFL regular season for their respective teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Other universities like LSU (six), The Ohio State University & Alabama (eight) have more total wideouts in the league. However, their production isn’t much more than the Aggies trio. The Crimson Tide led the way with 31 tuddies, the Buckeyes had 23 and the Tigers had 15.

Therefore, when you factor in average scores per player, Texas A&M leads the way with seven TDs. Alabama (3.875), Ohio State (2.875) and LSU (2.5) all trail the Aggies by a lot.

Evans (13) nearly racked up more scores than all of the LSU WRs combined. The list of Tigers alumni includes All-Pro wideouts like Justin Jefferson, Ja’Marr Chase and Odell Beckham Jr. It should be noted though that all three of those players dealt with injuries throughout 2023.

In 2023, Evans completed a decade of 1,000-yard seasons. He recorded totals of 79 catches for 1,255 yards and 13 touchdowns. Evans and the Buccaneers will host the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday at 7 p.m. CT to conclude Wild-card weekend.

With the assistance of head coach Dan Campbell, Reynolds earned a $250,000 bonus on Sunday. He finished the regular season with 40 receptions for 608 yards and five tuddies. The Lions will host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at 7:15 p.m. CT.

The Jaguars barely missed out on an AFC South division title and a playoff spot after losing 5 of their last 6 games to conclude the season. Kirk completed the campaign with 57 catches for 787 yards and three scores.

TAMU may not be WRU when it comes to quantity but the Aggies certainly are when it comes to quality.
