Evaluating the Giants' Current & Future Tight End Situation

If the Giants' wide receiving corps is the team's biggest strength, the tight end position is one of their bigger weaknesses.New York carried three tight ends on its game day roster last season (Larry Donnell, Daniel Fells, and Adrien Robinson) and they combined to haul in 84 catches for 861 yards and 11 touchdowns. As a unit, that 11 touchdown mark really stands out, but it's a...

Which New York Giants have most to prove in final preseason game?

The final preseason game is never really worth watching. If the starters play at all, it’s usually for only one series and players that will almost surely not make the team finish out the rest of the contest. For the Giants, injuries and roster cuts have made the depth chart picture a little clearer, but there are still positions, even starting roles, that need to be filled. Head...

Grading the New York Giants’ performance vs. Indianapolis Colts

The New York Giants may have pulled off one of the greatest comeback victories in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts, but don’t let the 27-26 triumph fool you. There were a lot of negatives to take away from the game, with many of them having to do with the 22 men currently considered starters. Let’s take a look at how each unit graded in the...

New York Giants: Larry Donnell Listed as Starting Tight End

The New York Giants were extremely aggressive in free agency this year, but failed to address their glaring need at the tight end position. The team decided that a “tight end by committee” could get the job done. When the Giants released their first official depth chart yesterday, a surprising name sat as the team’s starter. Larry Donnell, an undrafted free agent out of Grambling...

Defense rules the day, a live look from New York Giants training camp

On Friday, Big Blue put on the pads for the first time, and it was not unusual to hear the coaches bark out to players, “you got pads, use them.” In drills and the controlled scrimmages, it becomes clear that physicality, on both sides of the ball, has become a primary focus. Offensive coordinator, Ben McAdoo spent quality time with his tight ends in drills on Friday. From what...

Quick hits from New York Giants training camp

Unfortunately for the media, you can only view the scrimmages from a corner end zone vantage point, so most of my comments from yesterday will be reserved for the offense. Hopefully today I will be able to take in more of the defensive action. Also keep in mind that while first impressions are important, training camp is a long process, so my comments should also be taken with...

New York Giants: Early impressions from training camp

The New York Giants began training camp a mere four days ago and got off to a shaky start. Several Giants were carted off the field for heat related injuries and Odell Beckham Jr. is nursing a sore hamstring on the sidelines.

New York Giants Training Camp Preview: Tight Ends

What’s one of the biggest yet unsung for a top NFL offense? An athletic, playmaking tight end. And unfortunately for the New York Giants, they appear to be lacking in that department. The Giants currently have Adrien Robinson, Kellen Davis, Larry Donnell, Daniel Fells and rookie Xavier Grimble on the roster. None of those men, however, look like they have the potential to be a...

New York Giants: Final offseason moves to be made

Knowshon Moreno The way I see the New York Giants offseason ending is with the addition of a player through free agency. Actually, it doesn’t have to be a singular player- there are couple they could potentially chose from to shake things up a bit. Running back Knowshon Moreno was drafted in 2009 by the Broncos and was considered the best running back that year. He played in 60...

New York Giants to run tight end by committee?

There has been plenty of speculation about what the New York Giants will do this season at the tight end position with no standout player on the roster. Well, at least for the time being, it appears they’ll be utilizing the role in a by-committee basis like many teams do at the running back position.

New York Giants: TE Position Wide Open, Who has the Edge?

With the 2014-15 mini camps under way, the New York Giants will have many players battling for a roster spot at many different positions. However; the one position that is wide open arguably more than any other position is the TE spot.
