  • Article on FA TE's this offseason

    They think the Giants will sign Carlson to a 1 year deal.

    What do you think of guys like Dreesen or Bennet?

    I would definitely like to see Carlson play for us. However, if he is a weak blocker I'm not sure how much interest we would have. Our system calls for block-first, catch second type TEs.

    Still I think he would be worth offering a 1 year deal

          I think Kory Sperry would be a cheap signing with some upside. He is a restricted FA but we could probably offer about 2 yrs $4million and get him. He has a lot of athletic ability and reminds me a lot of Dustin Keller. Him, Carlson, Bennett and Dreessen would be main targets in FA.

            Joel Dreessen is my favorite of the bunch.

              Bennett just frustrates me. He can be better than Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski but he's just so god damn lazy.

                I would take Dressen or Bennett over Carlson. But we have to watch the cap number right now.

                I thought Shiancoe might be an option as well, but it sounds like since his good season a couple years back, he is on the decline.

                  I like how they say he is an ideal fit for the Giants but is the worst blocker. He is clearly not a good fit if he cant block.

                    Meh, I think Id rather us bring up someone in the draft. Eli made damned good players out of Boss and Ballard who werent 'bursting' with athletic talent. If we find someone in the draft that we can mold, and have for a long time, that would be ideal IMO

                      I agree. But I'd rather wait and not waste an early pick on a TE in the draft.

                          Bennett is the sexy pickup bc of the potential and might have motivation staying the division vs 'Boys but guys like this who are great on paper who haven't progressed usually continue to stay average.

                          Carlson doesn't block and was injured so not sure how great a fit he is. I know nothing about Dressen but like his productivity at least.

                          I'd probably opt for Hopkins and a draft pick .

                            Most of the people on these boards hate to hear that but I'm starting to think that might be the guy. At the very least he knows the system, having been in it for an entire year. A rookie has to learn the speed of the game on top of the system and that is typically why rookies don't see a lot of playing time in their first season.

                            Go Christian Hopkins!

                              He would have to block. That is #1 for our TE's. Dreesen might be a better fit.
