Mark Carrier (not to be confused with the Chicago Bears safety of the same name) had an incredible All-Pro caliber breakthrough season in 1989: 86 receptions for 1,422 yard and nine touchdowns.  He looked every bit like the next great NFL wide receiver.  He would never come close to those numbers again during his 12 year career.  Some of that, in his defense, can be attributed to a poor group of quarterbacks.  The only other season in which he would surpass the 1,000 yard plateau was in 1995, when he would amass 1,002 yards for the expansion Carolina Panthers.
