Brandon Pettigrew was another really good TE and played several years for Detroit. I remember him running 50+ yds down the field and into the east end zone for a TD in a shoot out with Leach and Texas Tech in 2007 (Youtube has it and it is fun to listen to Dave and John). Gundy has said that he was one of the more important players he had early in his career. GO POKES!!!
