Detroit Lions, NFC North positional previews: Tight Ends

2019 was a banner year for tight ends in the NFL. Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs and George Kittle of the San Francisco 49ers each held single-season receiving yardage record at the position, and Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots wrapped up a brilliant career with another Super Bowl win. The Detroit Lions on the other hand, endured a forgettable season from their tight ends, and are counting on a much better campaign from the unit after a series of offseason changes.

The Lions completely revamped their moribund tight end group this offseason, with hopes of bringing more balance to the offense.
