Before Kurt Warner came into the picture, Isaac Bruce was already making a name for himself as one of the receivers on the rise in the NFL. Bruce’s first five seasons in the league before Warner’s arrival cannot be denied.

Whether it was the 119 catches for 1,781 yards with 13 touchdowns during his sophomore campaign in 1995 or earning his first trip to the Pro Bowl the following season, it was clear that Bruce was a special kind of talent the Rams were lucky to have on offense.

Of course, Warner entering the picture during the 1999 season helped Bruce elevate his game to a whole new level. The wideout would not only go on to win his first Super Bowl, but also was named to the Pro Bowl three years in a row.

And if that wasn’t impressive enough, it should also be noted that during those three impressive seasons, Bruce caught 228 passes for 3,742 yards for 27 touchdowns. This showcased why he was one of the best wide receivers in the NFL during his prime.

Seeing the kind of numbers Bruce put up over his 14 years with the organization makes it pretty clear that he deserves to be the top receiver to ever suit up for the Rams. He was a key member of The Greatest Show on Turf for goodness sake.

Things may have been a little awkward towards the end of Bruce’s career when the team decided to cut him before the 2008 season as a result of contract differences. At least for the overall picture, this shouldn’t take away from what was a fantastic career for Bruce with the Rams.
