Several weeks ago, I did a piece on the best Chiefs running backs that have ever played for the organization. Last week, I did my own power rankings of who I thought was the top 10 wide receivers in Kansas City Chiefs history.
Now for this week, I have compiled a list of the top five tight ends that have ever wore red and gold. I decided to do a slightly shorter list this week, but I plan on getting back to another top 10 list with the best KC offensive linemen next week.
Honorbale mention: Jason Dunn
Dunn played tight end for Kansas City for eight long seasons after being drafted by the Eagles in 1996 out of Eastern Kentucky. From a quick glance at his career stats with the Chiefs, nothing really sticks out too much about 41 catches for 353 receiving yards and seven touchdowns over those eight years with the club.
However, it was the 6-foot-6, 276-pound Dunn’s blocking ability that got him an honorable mention here. He along with teammate Tony Gonzalez helped open open holes for one of the best rushing attacks and offenses that this franchise has ever seen. Because of this, he will go down as one of the best blocking TEs in team history.
Honorable mention: Keith Cash
A former seventh-round pick of the Redskins, Cash made his home in Kansas City for five seasons. He ranks near the top for tight ends in team history with 1,136 career yards and also finding pay-dirt nine different times as a Chief.
For most Chiefs fans, he is most known and remembered for catching a touchdown pass from HOF quarterback Joe Montana in a win against the Oilers in the 1993 NFL playoffs. Before beating the Houston Texans earlier this year, this was the last playoff game that the franchise had won. Since retiring from the league in 1996, Cash has since become a financial advisory in the Kansas City area.
Next: No. 5 and No. 4
