    Gronk is #1, but nobody except Pats fans is ready for that discussion.

    Gronk definitely could be seen as #1 given the amount of Super Bowl titles well rings he has to his name but also the argument could also be made for Tony Gonzalez even though Gonzalez never won a Super Bowl

    Yea that’s a tough one. Gronk wins. Gonzalez put up some really gaudy numbers for a TE though. Honestly for me it would be a coin toss as for who is better all time.

    Not just SBs, if you look at stats in their prime it's definitely Gronk. Tony G has way more longevity, but Gronk was more dominant.

    He definitely had a few years where he was extremely dominant. I would take Sharpe over Gates but personally I would still take Tony G or Gronk over him.

    Tony G was one of my favorite players that wasn’t on my team when I was growing up. I have him at #1. I’d say gronk was more dominant overall but Tony G was a top 10 TE for 15 years…

    Tony Gonzalez if he had Super Bowl appearances or even wins then without question his legacy as a tight end would be even more heralded than it already is

    I don't know how Kelce doesn't crack the list but I did get a kick out of your number 2. The ranking is fine, but I wasn't sure who you were talking about until you gave us his nickname lol

    The thing with Tony G is he revolutionized the position. There is no Gronk without Tony G first. So I keep Tony G at #1.

    Sharpe did it before Gonzalez. Gonzalez was a pure pass catching TE. I have to give the nod to Gronk at #1 for catching and blocking.

    Gronk
    Tony
    Sharpe
