The role of a tight end has changed over the years, from protecting the ball to running the ball, becoming less of a lineman and more of a hybrid between a lineman and a running back/receiver. On some teams, the QB to tight end combo is the most dangerous pair on the field.
Take a look at Super Bowl LIV and the season leading up to it, for example. The Mahomes/Kelce combination yielded a 71.3 completion percentage and almost 77 yards per game.
But your favorite tight end might not have played in Super Bowl LIV, so hopefully we’ve covered their accomplishments here.
