Longtime San Diego Charger and now New York Jet LaDainian Tomlinson ranks 3rd on the list. Unless LT can find some more gas in his tank he will never catch Emmett Smith. Surprisingly LT has only caught 15 TD's in his career and the rest were rushing but he has only played in 141 games so he's averaging better than a TD per game.

4) Randy Moss - 149

New England Patriot wide receiver Randy Moss ranks 4th on the list and all of his TD's are receiving and except for one punt return TD.

5) Terrell Owens - 147

Terrell Owens is right behind Randy Moss but being much older he will probably never get ahead of him. TO has 144 receiving TD's and 3 rushing TD's in his career.

6) Marcus Allen - 145

Longtime Oakland Raider Marcus Allen had 145 TD's in his great career with 123 rushing, 21 receiving and 1 TD from a fumble recovery.

7) Marshall Faulk - 136

Marshal Faulk was one of the most versatile players in NFL history as he ran for 100 TD's and scored another 36 from receiving the football.

8) Chris Carter - 131

Chris Carter was a great wide receiver primarily for the Minnesota Vikings in his 16 year career in which he recorded back to back 122 catch seasons. Carter had one fumble recovery for a TD and the rest were from receiving. Why he is not yet in the Pro Football Hall of Fame is a mystery to anybody who watched him play.

9) Marvin Harrison - 128
