3. Marty Booker

Checking in at no. 3 on our list and no. 8 on the Bears' all-time receiving list is former third-round pick Marty Booker. Back in 1999, Booker was selected by the Bears out of Louisiana-Monroe and went on to spend five seasons in Chicago.

Booker finished his Bears career with 329 receptions for 3,895 yards and 25 touchdowns. His best season as a Bear came in 2002 when he caught 97 passes for a career-high 1,189 yards and six touchowns. That year, Booker was voted to his only Pro Bowl appearance but the Bears finished 4-12.

As Jim Miller's favorite target for their time together with the Bears, Booker was about as sure-handed as they come. Now, don't check his catch percentage for proof. Booker's quarterbacks weren't always the most accurate, whether it was Miller, Shane Matthews or someone else.

But, Booker was as good as they come in terms of route running and getting open with his body. He was also very good at making big-time, sideline catches. Some may have forgotten, but Booker did come back to play for the Bears for one more year that featured less usage, but fans were happy to see a familiar face in 2008.
