Aside from helping the squad to a stint at Super Bowl LVI, he also broke Justin Jefferson‘s record for most receiving yards by a rookie with 1,455.
Chase also had 81 receptions and 13 touchdowns in his first NFL campaign.
The former LSU standout also set the single-game record for receiving yards by a rookie at 266.
These numbers earned him inclusion in last year’s Second-Team All-Pro and he was named Offensive Rookie of the Year.
He also made it to the Pro Bowl and the All-Rookie Team by the Pro Football Writers Association.
Now that he has achieved a lot in his brief career, the best encore is to build from his iconic rookie season.
This video shows that Chase is picking up where he left off.

That’s not a problem as the wideout made a one-handed grab before heading out of bounds.
What’s even more amazing is that Chase didn’t have a full view of the ball.
He anticipated where it would travel and had his hand at the right place.
Bengals Passing Game Looks Solid
Getting more of these amazing grabs from Chase will establish the Bengals as a legitimate contender in the AFC.
Higgins had 1,091 yards and six touchdowns last year while Boyd finished with 828 yards and five touchdowns.
Therefore, Cincinnati’s passing game remains dangerous even if they tighten their coverage on Chase.
Yet given his skill, he will eventually get his catches.
