Professional life

He was chosen 81st overall by the Washington Redskins in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft. The team used him more in the final eight games of the 2004 season than they did in the first half of the season. The Redskins used him a lot more in the final eight games of the 2004 season than they did in the first half of the season. During his first NFL season, he scored six touchdowns and had 37 receptions for 314 yards for the Redskins. In addition, they had caught three passes of more than twenty yards in the game, resulting in twenty-three first downs. At the end of the season, he averaged 8.5 yards per catch.

In 2005, he had a breakout season as a receiver, catching 71 passes for 774 yards and seven touchdowns, three of which came against the Dallas Cowboys, breaking the Redskins franchise record for tight end receptions in a single season. Because Chris was on his opponent’s fantasy football team, those three touchdowns cost him the fantasy football playoff game.

He led all NFC tight ends in fan voting for the annual Pro Bowl with 422,314 votes but was not chosen after player and coach voting. Beginning in 2006, he experienced a slowdown under the play-calling of Al Saunders, the Washington Redskins’ new offensive coordinator. With only three receptions in the first two weeks, he seemed out of place in the new offensive scheme, but he grew into an important part of the Redskins offense in the weeks that followed. He had slightly lower numbers than his sophomore season, but he was still one of the game’s best tight ends.

Injuries and surgeries

On October 27, 2009, he tweeted that the break might not be as long as he had feared and that he could be back in four weeks. His longest play of the season is a 66-yard touchdown. On November 30, 2009, he was officially placed on the injured reserve. He played in all sixteen games of the 2010 season before undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on January 3, 2011. Furthermore, he did not participate in any preseason games because he was still recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

He only appeared in five games during the 2011 season. He broke Jerry Smith’s Week 1 record of 421 receptions against the New York Giants and became the Washington Redskins’ all-time leader in tight end receptions with 422 catches. In Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys, he filled in for Darrel Young and Mike Sellers, who were both injured, and played fullback for the first time in his career. He broke his finger against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6. On October 25, 2011, he was formally placed on injured reserve after his knee was examined again by his doctor. He was told that his knee would need to heal for another four to five weeks.


He was named to the Pro Bowl twice in 2007 and 2008. Furthermore, he is the all-time leader in tight-end receptions for the Washington Redskins. Aside from that, he has been inducted into the Utah State University Athletics Hall of Fame. He was named first-team All-Sun Belt in 2003.
