This year has been somewhat of a revelation for Chicago Bears fans, watching D.J. Moore in his first year with the team.

Having a weapon like Moore isn't something the Bears have been used to in recent seasons, with his ability to stretch the field and being one of the better receivers in yards after the catch. He's also a big fan of Justin Fields, which is a breath of fresh air for those who want Fields to stick around.

While this season hasn't quite gone the Bears' way, we're going to end the calendar year by going back into history a bit and ranking the top-10 wide receivers in franchise history.

10. James Scott

First up on the list is a former eighth-round pick by the New York Jets that ultimately spent his entire 8-year career with the Bears. He played his college ball at Trinity Valley Community College and somehow wound up in the NFL -- a pretty cool story.

Scott sits 14th on the Bears' all-time receiving list with 3,202 yards and 20 receiving touchdowns. His best year as a pro came in 1977 when he caught 50 passes for 809 yards and three touchdowns. His career-high in touchdowns came as a rookie in 1976, though, when he scored six times.

Fun fact: Scott ranks fifth all-time in Bears history with an average of 18.1 yards per reception (minimum 100 career receptions).
