Shannon Sharpe One Tight End To Look Up To

I’ll spare you the name of one tight end for the sake of another.

As one former Patriots tight end was arrested, released by his team, and charged with murder (without bail) on Wednesday, another continues to live a very clean lifestyle after his playing days are over.

Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe is in tip-top shape, works some long hours on the set of CBS Sports, and continues to be an inspiring family man.

Check out Sharpe’s interview with Carmichael Training on his transition to cycling.

Sharpe says,

Michael Irvin and I, we talk about this all the time. I never want to walk by a father and son, and the dad looks at his son and says, ‘He used to play.’ And the kid looks at the dad and says, ‘What did he play? Offensive line? Defensive Line?’ I still want to look like I could play even though I know I can’t.

Now that’s a tight end our youth can look up to.
