Don’t call ’em trick plays: Why NFL teams love non-QB passes and who’s best at it



Article Summary:

“For us, it’s a backyard play,” veteran New England Patriots receiver Nelson Agholor said.

Patriots receiver Jakobi Meyers is 2-of-2 for 45 yards this season, and fellow receiver Kendrick Bourne has thrown a 25-yard TD pass – to Agholor.

Meyers, of course, tossed two touchdown passes in the 2020 season, and former Patriots receiver Julian Edelman retired with a most impressive passing stat line: 7-of-8 for 179 yards, two TDs and a 158.3 rating.

Through Week 12 of the NFL season, non-quarterbacks have attempted 26 passes this season, completing 13, and are on pace to attempt 37 passes, according to ESPN Stats.
