Justin Jefferson is just getting started

Justin Jefferson turned 23-years-old a few days ago. It’s easy to forget just how young he is and the wide receiver is only just scratching the surface about what he’s capable of.

The Vikings couldn’t turn in their card fast enough when the Philadelphia Eagles spurned Jefferson in favor of Jalen Reagor. Judging by his consistency and immediate impact, it’s not hard to see why.

This is a player that is not even close to reaching his prime yet. Jefferson is only going to get better, which should strike fear in every cornerback unfortunate enough to line up against him moving forward.

The Triple Crown is an ambitious feat for any wideout. Some of the all-time greats haven’t managed it, so Jefferson has his work cut etching his name in NFL history.

Much will also depend on how much Minnesota’s new regime relies on the running game. This was a popular method to gain yards under Mike Zimmer and the Vikings have one of the best around in Dalvin Cook to shoulder the load.

Jefferson has the world at his feet. He’s just getting started and should numbers increase for a third-straight year, one would be extremely foolish to rule out the Triple Crown.
