It's possible the Giants have the weakest tight end group of any NFL team at this time.
Entering training camp, the Giants will be working with Daniel Fells, Xavier Grimble, Larry Donnell, Adrien Robinson and Kellen Davis at the position. None of those players are proven as NFL tight ends, making it a risk no matter who Giants coach Tom Coughlin decides to go with.
Giants vice president and general manager Jerry Reese, however, believes it could be a situation where guys rotate frequently by who's playing the best.
"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," Reese said on radio station WFAN, via NJ.com. "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."
Of course, the option of finding a veteran tight end remains. Jermichael Finley is on the free agent market still, though he had a major injury a year ago that could keep teams from signing him.
The Giants should really consider finding a veteran that can be plugged into this offense. It will make things for Eli Manning a lot easier than having to work with any from the current group on the first team.
