Shannon Sharpe is considered one of the greatest Tight Ends to ever play the game. His accomplishments landed him in the Hall of Fame class of 2011. He was a player that literally redefined his position, a wide receiver in a tight ends body providing championship metal for every team he played on. Sharpe’s contributions to the National Football League are legendary. He personified what an athlete should be and ended his illustrious career etching his place in history as the all-time NFL leader on several prestigious lists.
Sharpe was more than the numbers. He was a brash showman with an unrelenting work ethic and an unwavering desire to win, a combination as confounding to onlookers as his abilities were to opposing defenses. His peers and fans adored him because he played the game with love, courage and tenacity. Few athletes in the history of sports are remembered for their enthusiasm, character, and unselfish nature. These are among the many gifts he gave the game.
A gentleman with integrity and a great sense of humor, Shannon is known to have a wonderful heart both on and off the field. Known as a leader by example, Shannon answers the call as a role model for the youth of today. Shannon is now enjoying his career as a commentator for CBS Sports, NFL Today Show. His experience and outspoken insight is lifting television to new levels.
