Gronk was my point
You mean the guy that had 1 big year? LINK
Yeah I know he had injuries last year but he is only 3 years in the league and his first year only had decent TE stats(save for the tds which was still not OMGAMAZING his first year, just above average).
You can throw Gates in there as well
He's been up and down. Injuries there too but that is my point. Gonzalez has been the only one recently to do it year in and year out. LINK
Gates would be the 2nd after Gonzalez but he is definitely a notch below. He's only has 2 seasons over 80 catches. LINK
Graham has had two amazing years in a row and if he stays healthy he will exceed Gates easily and push Gonzalez for best TE in recent history. But he has to stay healthy. The production will be there.
So again, show me 5+ years of consistent greatness from another TE. Not a 1 year wonder or someone who has had a couple of great years and only decent to above average other ones.
Graham definitely deserved to be on the list this year. His "down" year almost matched Gates best 2 years and most of Tony's great years.
But I'm not mad. I'm hoping he uses this as motivation to get even better.
