List Rules Vote up the players who had the most success playing tight end for the Raiders

Every tight end in Raiders history has gone unsung to an extent. The position is probably the least heralded of the skilled offensive positions in football, but it is still possible for talented tight ends to leave a mark and even move up the ranks of the best football players of all time.

Of all the tight ends in Raiders franchise history, Dave Casper, a Hall of Famer and two-time Super Bowl champion, is probably the standard bearer. However, Raymond Chester and Todd Christensen finished their careers with more touchdowns, and Christensen's 5,872 receiving yards are by far the record for a Raiders tight end.

So which of these players was the best tight end in Raiders history? Who added the most to his legacy while wearing Silver and Black? Vote below, then check out the ranking of greatest Raiders players of all time and see if any of these players made the cut.
