NFL fans can't seem to get enough of Justin Jefferson. The star wide receiver of the Minnesota Vikings is known for making amazing catches and unleashing one of the most duplicated celebrations in football, the Griddy.

At 25 years old, there is a real argument among football analysts and experts on whether or not Jefferson is the best receiver in the game today. That kind of notoriety is why he was chosen for the upcoming Netflix series "Receiver."

Vikings fans will remember last year's Netflix series "Quarterback" which followed Chiefs' star Patrick Mahomes, Former Vikings QB Kirk Cousins, and Marcus Mariota in a docuseries that showed different sides and views of those players.

When will Netflix’s ‘Receiver’ with Justin Jefferson be released?

"Receiver" will follow Davante Adams of the Las Vegas Raiders, Justin Jefferson, San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle, 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel, and Amon-Ra St. Brown of the Detroit Lions in a docuseries that should be similar in tone to "Quarterback."

Netflix will likely spend time taking a look into how these players live when they're not on the football field as well as glimpses of them while at their jobs. Getting a peek into the lives of these superstar players should be interesing and fun while helping to create even more of a connection between the NFL and its fans.

Since it was announced, interest has continued to grow for the upcoming docuseries. The wait to watch what should be a highly talked about show is nearly over since the release date is coming up very shortly.

The docuseries is created by NFL Films, Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions, and Mahomes’ 2PM Productions. The series will span eight episodes, each with a run time of 45 minutes. Allowing six hours of content.

Justin Jefferson should provide a fascinating topic for the show. This offseason, the star pass-catcher signed a lucrative contract extension, dealt with a nagging injury throughout the 2023 season, and experienced turmoil as the Minnesota Vikings had one of the most interesting seasons in the franchise's recent history.
