Bavaro, a member of the New York Giants Ring of Honor, served as a tight end for the team from 1985-1990. He was on two Super Bowl winning teams (Super Bowl XXI and XXV) and selected to two Pro Bowls (1986 and 1987).
The University of Notre Dame All-American was drafted by the Giants in the fourth round of the 1985 NFL Draft (100th overall). Bavaro quickly emerged as a starter in his rookie season. He became one of the best tight ends in the game, known for his receiving skills, toughness, and ability to drag defenders with him to gain extra yardage or go in for the touchdown.
After his six seasons in New York, Bavaro played for the Cleveland Browns (1992) and finished his career with the Philadelphia Eagles (1993-1994).
