It was obvious to former Giants TE Will Tye that his time with Big Blue was coming to an end during training camp last season.
The Giants drafted Ole Miss TE Evan Engram as well as signing veteran free-agent Rhett Ellison to add to the already-crowded tight end corps. Tye may have played in all 16 games with 10 starts in 2016, totaling 395 yards and a lone touchdown. But with a first-rounder and veteran on a multi-year deal, he knew he was on a short leash.
His assumptions were right as Tye was waived before the regular season started.
