2. Robert Luis “Bob” Tucker
As we continue our list of Giant’s All-Time tight ends, we’ve come to the runner-up, Robert Luis “Bob” Tucker. Hailing from Pennsylvania, Tucker was one of the first marquee tight ends in the NFL and one of the few Giants players that played in four different home stadiums.
Tucker was drafted by the Giants in 1970 from Bloomsburg University and played for them until the 1977 season. Tucker one of the most productive tight ends in history as he led the NFC in receptions with 59 in the 1971 season. He caught more passes than other tight end in the 1970’s and still till this day, he’s the most productive player in the position to not make it to the Pro Bowl.
He solidified his spot in Giants’ history by holding the record for most yards receiving by a tight end with 4,376. Tucker was known to be “revolutionary” during his time and still kept up with several Giants quarterbacks. Tucker was productive every time he stepped on the field and during his career he had five 100-yard receiving games.
