Sep 25, 2014; Landover, MD, USA; A New York Giants player
While everyone is worrying about quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers, let’s look somewhere else. In order to have a complete offense in the NFL, you need one player that can do it all and the only position that is capable of that is the tight end. If the tight end is not doing his job, then a squad won’t get very far in the season and won’t even think about the play-offs. That corner spot on the offensive line is the most crucial on the offense and we’re going to look at the New York Giants‘ past tight ends.
While many have come and gone in the organization, we broke it down to the top five and see why they have solidfied their position in Giants’ history. It’s not only the numbers that made these tight ends stand out, but their toughness and willingness to win.
The one tight end that did not make the cut for this list is still active on the Giants’ squad and goes by the name of Larry Donnell. The 26-year old had a breakout year last season with 654 yards on 66 receptions for six touchdowns. If Donnell continues the way he’s going, he could arguably go down as the most productive tight end in Giants’ history. Along with Donnell currently on the roster are Daniel Fells, Jerome Cunningham, Adrien Robinson, and rookie Matt LaCosse.
We could have a whole new list in the future if these players could live up to this list. These top five tight ends have made their mark in G-men history and let’s see why.
Next: 5. Aaron Thomas
