Hard to believe he went undrafted.

Although I have to admit, I thought he’d already retired.

He didn't play in 2019, but was an available free agent. He had 45 catches and 2 TDs in 2018.

Career earnings: $70M.

Amazing how much player wages have increased. If he was in his prime now he probably would get close to 70 on a 4 year deal in Today's NFL.

Great player and a great career! Wish he could have gotten a ring!
Having Norv Turner as a HC during his peak years greatly hampered his chances to play for a championship.

He should be a first ballot HOF player. Will he? I don’t know. I have lost faith in everyone who votes for anything football related.
Should be, but 5 spots are always tight

All time leader of Touchdowns from the Tight End position, believe as a Chargers Drew threw the most of his TD passes to him while he was there.

Happy trails.
