David Mikel Tyree (born January 3, 1980) is a retired American football wide receiver and special teams player. He was drafted by the New York Giants in the sixth round of the 2003 NFL Draft. He played college football at Syracuse University. Tyree has also played for the Baltimore Ravens. He earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2005 as a special teams player.
He is best known for his so called "helmet catch" in 2008 on the Giants' final drive of Super Bowl XLII in the waning moments of the game. The catch came at a crucial moment, and was instrumental in continuing the drive that eventually resulted in the Giants scoring a last-minute touchdown and a 17–14 victory over the previously undefeated New England Patriots.
