Mourning the loss of the best tight end ever

A lot of guys get called Pro Bowler. Some guys get called All-time Great or Hall of Famer.

But Best Ever? Only one guy gets that title.

Without argument, Tony Gonzalez is that guy at Tight End. He holds almost every record a TE can: single season receptions (102) by a tight end, career touchdowns by a tight end (76), career receptions by a tight end (916), and reception yards by a tight end (10,940). On top of his superior pass catching ability, he blocked for some of the best rushing teams in the last decade.

You can trade a Pro Bowler, an All-time Great, or even a Hall of Famer. But you don’t trade the best ever, even if you want him to win a championship. You build around him. You win. You bring the championship home.

Best of luck, Tony.
