Jerry Reese: Giants still don’t have a No. 1 tight end

jerry reeseGiants general manager Jerry Reese told 660 WFAN in New York that no one has stood out as a number one tight end so far this offseason.

“I think the jury is still out on who the No. 1 tight end is, I think it’ll probably be tight end by committee,” he said on WFAN this afternoon. “But there are some really good tight ends, some athletic, big guys who can run and catch the ball.

“Adrien Robinson and Larry Donnell are a couple of young guys who have been on the squad for a couple of years, but have had some injury stuff going on with them. We expect them to be healthy and to be able to pick up the slack here.”

Firing tight ends coach Mike Pope was a big mistake this offseason.  He’s the best coach in the NFL at the tight end position.  He made Jake Ballard into a formable starter (until he tore up his knee) and also made Bear Pascoe look solid.
