New York Giants: 5 offensive free agent targets, including Mitchell Trubisky
By Reese Nasser
Robert Tonyan, Tight End
PFF Projected deal: 1 yrs — $5.5m avg/yr
Green Bay Packer’s tight end Robert Tonyan could be a great addition to this Giants team. Much like their lack of depth at the running back position, New York currently has no power at the tight end position. After letting Evan Engram walk in free agency, and choosing to release Kyle Rudolph, the Giants will have to address the tight end position.
Tonyan played just eight games last season as he suffered a torn ACL halfway through this season. In his eight games, Tonyan recorded 18 passes which resulted in 204 yards and two touchdowns.
The potential of Tonyan is what could make this signing make sense for the Giants. His 2020 season showed just how good Tonyan can be when he has the ball in his hands. He caught 52 passes and recorded 586 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Head coach Brian Daboll has proven that he knows how to get the most out of his tight ends. Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox has developed into one of the best overall players at his position in all the NFL.
Placing Tonyan in an offense constructed by Daboll could help bring the best out of him. At just 27-years old, he still can play at a high level. While he may not be among the best at his position, he is good enough to still make a difference on this offense.
