7 Ozzie Newsome, Hall-of-Fame tight-end, Baltimore Ravens' general manager, and the man responsible for signing him before the 2000 season had this to say about him, "I think he's a threat when he's on the field. He has to be double teamed. He's a great route-runner. He's proving that he can make the big plays. That's what separates him. He's a threat".
8 Younger brother of former NFL wide receiver Sterling Sharpe.
9 He was one of the NFL's top tight ends from the 1990s through the early 2000s. He played 12 of his 14 seasons with the Denver Broncos in the NFL. He is known most for his creative commentary and trash talking as well as for being no doubt the greatest tight end of his time, and maybe in league history.
10 He was selected in the 7th round of the 1990 NFL draft, 192nd overall, by the Denver Broncos. He had a mediocre rookie season as a wide receiver, until Broncos head coach Dan Reeves convinced him to convert to tight end. He remained with Denver until 1999, winning two Super Bowl championships in the process. After the 1997 season championship, his first, he appeared on General Mills' Wheaties boxes with four other Broncos. After a two-year stint with the Baltimore Ravens, where he won another Super Bowl ring, he returned to the Broncos. He played there until 2003. Then, he retired to become an NFL broadcaster.
