In the rare trade that has worked out splendidly for both teams, the Minnesota Vikings continue to reap rewards for sending Stefon Diggs to Buffalo in exchange for the Bills’ No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

That pick turned into LSU WR Justin Jefferson and on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, he set the Vikings’ mark for receiving yards by a rookie. He later added the receiving mark for a rookie overall.

Jefferson is the NFL record-holder for receiving yards in a rookie season in the Super Bowl era. Anquan Boldin’s record of 1,377 yards stood for 16 seasons, but Jefferson just surpassed it.

Jefferson honored the man whose mark he broke, Randy Moss, via cleats.
