1. Vernon Davis 2006-2015 (2x Pro Bowler, five postseason victories)
Although tight end Vernon Davis does not have any Super Bowl championships from his time with the San Francisco 49ers, his postseason performances were so integral to the team’s success that he earns the top spot at tight end on this list.
In addition to four postseason games with over 100 receiving yards, and averaging nearly one touchdown per postseason game with the Niners, Davis also caught the game-winning touchdown in 2012 against the New Orleans Saints. That play helped launch the team to three straight NFC Championship Games.
2. Brent Jones 1987-1997 (4x Pro Bowler, 14 postseason victories, 3x Super Bowl champion)
Brent Jones benefited from playing with two Hall of Fame quarterbacks in Joe Montana and Steve Young, and the tight end became a vital outlet valve for both QBs.
Jones took more shots than a 22-year-old at a Las Vegas bachelor party. But like a champ, he always got back to his feet. An adequate blocker, Jones always seemed to outperform his athletic ability. Although he lacked a signature postseason performance, Jones makes this list by way of consistency and his important contributions to three Super Bowl championship teams.
