Eddie's 91 receptions are second most in NFL history for a rookie, behind only Anquan Boldin
who had 101. His 980 yards and five touchdowns are both Broncos rookie records. He was seventh in the league among wide receivers in receptions, and sixth in the NFL in total yards.
Early in the 2009 season, Royal became the 4th fastest player in NFL
history to reach 100 career receptions.
On October 19, 2009, Royal became the first player in Broncos history, and only the 11th player to date in National Football League
history, to return a kickoff (93 yards) and a punt (71 yards) for touchdowns in the same game, leading undefeated Denver to a 34-23 win over the San Diego Chargers
Wasted potential!! I think he would thrive in the Broncos offense now with Manning, wr bubble screen to eddie ftw, Cry me a River can't find morbidly obese Antonio Gates much less get Eddie the ball, not to mention Norv is an idiot and the Chargers are morons for paying 6mil guaranteed only to bench the guy.
