BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - It’s the fourth Sunday in October, and it’s National Tight Ends Day. A tradition that started in the NFL.

This week, the NFL celebrates the “holiday” for the second time.

According to ESPN, it’s something that started as an inside joke in the Niners' locker room and has now become a league holiday on the fourth Sunday of October.

On behalf of tight ends everywhere, we shout out Auburn’s J.J. Pegues and Alabama’s Miller Forristall.
