5. Robert Tonyan, TE
Robert Tonyan burst onto the scene in 2020 out of nowhere. The 26-year-old tight end had a career year with 52 receptions (on just 59 targets) for 586 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Green Bay Packers. He became a trusted security blanket for Aaron Rodgers and was expecting big things in the future.
Then in 2021, he was dealt a tough blow when he suffered a torn ACL in Week 8. He wasn’t off to the same start he had the year prior but wasn’t given a chance to finish strong.
He did get an opportunity to prove he was healthy in 2022 when the Packers re-signed him on a one-year deal. Tonyan had 53 catches for 470 yards and while he had just two touchdowns, he still proved he was a reliable receiver.
This led to him landing a one-year deal with the Bears in the offseason. With Chicago, he would be the No. 2 tight end along with Cole Kmet, giving them two receiving options at the position. While Kmet has put together a strong campaign, Tonyan hasn’t made much of an impact.
Heading into the final week of the season, he’s seen just 16 targets and has 11 receptions for 112 yards. He has yet to score a touchdown with his new team and will likely be looking for another home in 2024.
