Meet Keyshawn Johnson

Keyshawn Johnson of the New York Jets says he is one of the best receivers in football. He also says no defender can cover him. But there is more to Keyshawn than just talk.

"I am known for my speed and leaping ability," says Keyshawn. "I am agressive. And I score touchdowns."

Keyshawn does more than score touchdowns. He led the Jets in catches (83) and receiving yards (1,131) in 1998.

Injuries clipped the Jets' Super Bowl dreams in 1999. But Keyshawn is still the Jets' Key man.
