Tight ends: Dennis Pitta, Mark Andrews, Nick Boyle
I firmly believe that Dennis Pitta could’ve been one of the best tight ends of the 2010s as a whole if he never had that hip injury in 2013. Pitta had a terrific 2012 campaign to the tune of 61 receptions for 669-yards and seven touchdowns. He followed that up with a four-touchdown post-season and was Joe Flacco’s new best friend. Pitta fought through injuries the next three years before having a productive 2016 season. Pitta ended his career following his 86/729/2 2016 season.
Mark Andrews is just two years into his Baltimore Ravens career and he’s already led the NFL in touchdowns for a tight end in 2019 (10), which also just so happens to be the Ravens franchise record. Andrews earned his first career Pro Bowl in 2019 while proving to be Lamar Jackson’s BFF. Baltimore has a storied history of tight end play and Andrews lived up to the hype.
There were a few directions I could’ve gone here. Ed Dickson was rock solid during his time in Charm City, while guys like Owen Daniels and Ben Watson had one-year stops with the team. I decided to go with Nick Boyle, however, who’s spent the entirety of his five-year career with Baltimore. Boyle does all the dirty work for the team with no complaints. He may be underappreciated by the media, but Ravens Flock loves what Boyle brings to the table as a blocker, receiver, and teammate.
