Tonyan drew rave reviews from Packers tight ends coach Justin Outten on Sunday, with the coach stating his belief that Tonyan "has not reached his ceiling yet."

Tonyan did not see action in the Packers' preseason opener, but that was not due to any sort of injury and rather the fact he has established himself as the top tight end in Green Bay. After a breakout 2020 campaign, Tonyan continued making strides over the offseason, with Outten noting, "What (Tonyan) does outside the building has really jumped off. You can progress (in camp), but you have to be able to do it outside this building, and he's really taken care of his body, the mental aspect of it, the gymnastics of the playbook and being utilized a little bit more." It will be tough for Tonyan to match the 11 touchdowns he scored last year, but regardless he'll remain a key piece of the Packers offense in 2021.
