New York Giants Tight Ends

We're constantly being told that the NFL is now a tight end league. If you don't have a good one, you're offense is lacking.

In fact, you need two good ones: one that can catch and one that can block. If you're you're lucky, you might get one that can do both. The Giants used to be a TE-rich team with dynamic players at the position who were coached by the best position coach in the game in Mike Pope.

These days, the Giants are fairly thin at the position. They currently have one draft bust (Adrien Robinson) and an undersized UDFA in Jerome Cunningham on the roster.

At the beginning of camp, the Giants' plan at TE was to have one or two players emerge from the pack and take over the lion's share of the load.

With two weeks to go before the Giants kick off the regular season in Detroit, no one has distinguished themselves, leaving head coach Tom Coughlin talking TE by committee as roster cuts near.

"That is not necessarily what the plan was," said Coughlin. "But the plan has evolved to that, where people can be utilized for their skills in different ways...the expectations were that the two young guys would develop and grow and that the two veteran players would be stabilizers and do the things that they have done well."

It?s actually true: The Giants have three tight ends on their roster, and even four if you include Bear Pascoe (though we?ll consider him mostly a fullback).

Sometimes we forget though that the Giants have these tight ends, because rarely do we see the position utilized in the offensive pass game.

We were spoiled the past few seasons with the production from former tight ends Jeremy Shockey, Kevin Boss, Jake Ballard and Martellus Bennett.

John Carlson

Who knows what Carlson?s market will be like after missing all of the 2011 season with a torn labrum?? We do know that Seattle had already replaced him with Zach Miller even before his injury, so he?s likely to be calling a new state his home.? He?s a poor blocker, but a strong receiver and would be an upgrade over Bear Pascoe.

Martellus?Bennett
