Antonio Freeeman is a former NFL wide receiver who played most notably for the Green Bay Packers.
Freeman played college football at Virginia Tech and was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the 1995 NFL Draft. He went on to lead the Packers in receiving in four seasons from 1996–1999, and led the NFL in receiving in 1998 after catching 84 passes for 1,424 receiving yards and earning his only Pro Bowl appearance.
In his ten NFL seasons, Freeman caught 477 passes for 7,251 yards, gained 1,007 yards returning kickoffs and punts and scored 61 touchdowns. His teams made the playoffs in seven of his NFL seasons. He appeared in four NFC Championship Games and two Super Bowls. He ranks sixth all-time on the Green Bay Packers receivers list with 6,651 yards on 431 catches. Freeman had three 1,000 yard receiving seasons in his career, in 1997-99.
The peak of Freeman's career occurred during his first tenure with the Packers and included a victory in Super Bowl XXXI over the New England Patriots. During the Super Bowl, Freeman caught what was then a Super Bowl record-long touchdown pass of 81 yards from Brett Favre. That play would give the Packers the lead for good as they went on to win 35–21.
During overtime of a Monday night game on November 6, 2000 despite bad weather conditions, Freeman made a catch that initially appeared to be an incomplete pass while lying on his back—after almost being intercepted, the ball actually bounced off multiple parts of Freeman's body without hitting the ground. Untouched by the defender, Freeman jumped to his feet and ran the ball in for the winning touchdown over the rival Minnesota Vikings. The touchdown prompted ABC play-by-play announcer Al Michaels, who was obviously stunned by the play, to famously shout, "He did WHAT???" In 2005 ESPN labeled the catch as the greatest play in the history of Monday Night Football. Freeman has said it was the best catch of his career (claiming his second best to be an 81 yard catch in Super Bowl XXXI).
Freeman has occasionally served an analyst with ESPN where he shares his opinions on ESPN First Take and NFL Live. Freeman also appears on Redskins Kickoff and Redskins Postgame Live as a commentator on Comcast SportsNet Washington.
