How New York Giants can make up for losing Evan Engram
By John Makuch
The tight end market is quickly drying up, and it is unlikely that another free agent signing of note will take place for New York.
However, there are still some solid talents out there that may be willing to play for the New York Giants, even on a prove-it type deal, in the coming season.
Jared Cook is getting up there in age at 34, but he is still a solid route runner that could be a mentor to some of the young players on this roster. Money could be an issue there, which is true for all free agent signings, but a one-year deal could prove useful.
The Giants would most likely want to go younger though, and older players are more likely to sign with teams that give them a chance at a championship.
Eric Ebron missed the last seven games of the season with an injury, but the Giants could give him a place to recover this season. Pittsburgh could bring him back in some likelihood, but he could find some consistency in New York.
Gerald Everett could also be a name that gets thrown in the mix in free agency. The 27-year-old caught 48 passes for four touchdowns and 478 yards in a solid season.
Saving cap space on players in other needs will most likely be the move though, and the Giants most likely would not have the cap space to sign any of these players regardless. But, if things change, these names could be available late into free agency.
Having any of these options could prove to be a nice one-two punch with Seals-Jones, but the NFL Draft is more likely to be where the Giants fill this need.
