#47-Johnny Morris

Tenure: 1958-1967

It’s hard to keep the Bears’ all-time leading receiver, in terms of yardage at least, off of this list. In his ten-year career, all of which was spent in Chicago, Morris had 5, 059 yards receiving. His 356 catches rank third all-time behind only Walter Payton and Matt Forte. He was elected to the Pro Bowl in 1960, was a member of the 1963 NFL Championship team, and was an All-Pro in 1964, a season which saw him catch 93 passes for 1200 yards and 10 touchdowns.
