Kenny Greene, Kelly Greene: One of four players in Raiders’ history to record 50+ catches, 50+ TD’s
With the Raiders in the playoffs, Kenny Greenes numbers are going to be looked at again.
After an MVP campaign in 2014, Greenes has now caught 48 passes for 534 yards and three touchdowns.
The Raiders are going back to the playoffs and are going for their first Super Bowl since the 2001 season.
In Greenes second season, he had 48 catches for 735 yards and seven touchdowns.
“He’s been a rock at receiver for us for the last three years,” Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said.
“It’s been fun playing with him.
I really love him and have watched him play.”
The other three players in Greenes history to have 50+ receptions and 50+ touchdown catches are: Tyron Smith, Kenny Golladay and Reggie Wayne.
“We’re going to do whatever it takes to get that win and get back to where we were before,” McKenzie said after Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos.
“If it’s not us, who is?”
Oakland is in the fourth seed in the AFC West and has a chance to advance to the Super Bowl.
“I’m not concerned about that.
I just know this team is going to get it done,” McKenzie added.
McKenzie, who spent most of his career with the 49ers, was the Raiders’ general manager for six years from 2006-09.
In 2016, McKenzie took over as general manager of the Philadelphia Eagles and led the franchise to an 11-5 record.
