    I have confidence in Mike Pope. If he can make Jake Ballard a good TE, he can do anything.

    Still, I can't recall a tight end getting anywhere near 800 in this generation; most of the time they seem to top out at around 5-600. I think Shockey may have hit 700.
    he wasnt a main target and they did not try to make him one. The Giants main catchers are and have been the WRs in the Eli era.
    I like Myers but he wont have to be an 800 yard TE....

    Bennett was the third most targeted Giant last year.

    Behind Nicks and Cruz.

    Of course. Third is still significant, though. Ballard and Boss weren't looked at nearly as much.

    Also, the difference between Nicks and Bennett was ten targets. Not much at all.

    Just remember, here, tight ends are linemen first no matter what.

    I think the shoulder injury he played with all season was a huge factor in his blocking, I think he will be much better this year.

    Mike Pope will fix his blocking shortcomings

    Giants dont use a TE in the passing game but somehow Bennett managed 90 Targets

    Yeah but was that because of Nicks being hurt and them not having a reliable 3rd option at WR?
