Bavaro is one of the finest all-around tight ends in Giants history. An outstanding blocker, he is also 10th on the franchise's career list with 266 receptions and 15th with 3,722 yards. Bavaro was a starter on the Giants' 1986 and 1990 Super Bowl championship teams and a Pro Bowler in 1986 and '87. In the Giants' first Su-per Bowl season, Bavaro led the team with 66 catches – twice as many as any teammate – for 1,001 yards to become the only tight end in Giants history with 1,000 receiving yards in a season.
