Ten best receivers of all time

They're dropping like flies.

The elite of the Y2K era are hanging 'em up left and right. There was Patrick Willis last March. Charles Woodson told everyone he was done at the end of December. Beast Mode tweeted his epic farewell in February. Then we watched Peyton Manning's formal announcement Monday. And now, Calvin Johnson has joined the club.

The front-page news Tuesday, that one of the scariest wide receivers to ever lace them up was calling it quits, inspired me to jot down the top 10 wideouts of all time -- all eras included. Let's celebrate the true elite at one of pro football's most glamorous positions.
