Since being selected with the No. 22 pick in the NFL Draft, Minnesota Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson has been nothing short of special. His ascent to the best receiver in the league status has only continued this season in historical fashion.
In November, Jefferson eclipsed Randy Moss’ record for receiving yards in a player’s first three seasons.
He’s already locked up the NFL Play of the Year Award, and recently broke Cris Carter’s record of 122 catches in a season with 123 and counting. And with two games remaining, he’s now just 209 yards away from breaking Calvin Johnson’s NFL record of 1,964 receiving yards in a season.
Oh yeah, and he was a significant contributor in the Vikings completing the greatest comeback in league history, as they defeated the Indianapolis Colts in overtime 39-36 after being down 33-0 at halftime.
Check below as the All-Pro receiver gives Muscle and Fitness a glimpse into some of his favorite training gear.
