    TE going forward

    With the season just about over for big blue, and slim chances of making the playoffs, I believe we need to give more playing time to the young TE's on the roster. Meyers has been a huge disappointment in my eyes (even with last weeks game). Meyers just doesn't fit this offense, he can't block worth a damn, and if he does end up catching a ball he ends up falling down immediately. Is it possible he is even less athletic than Ballard and Boss?

    I know Adrien Robinson has been injured most of the year, but i think he is healthy now. Let's see what this kid has, he can't be any worse than Meyers. He most likely would be a huge upgrade in the run game. Time to show why NYG drafted you or stop taking up a damn roster space and cut him. I don't care if he's the " JPP of tight ends" we need some production out of the position, it has really been killing our offense all season. The O-line has sucked, but the TE's have been a big part of the problem, think about how often Eli went to Boss or Ballard, the TE was his safety blanket.

    Larry Donnell looks like he could be promising if he could just stay healthy. Good blocker that needs to work on his hands a little bit.

    We need a new face at TE, one that is a block first catch second kind of guy.
    We will be digging out of this OL mess for a few years and need all the help we can get in the run game from our TE.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    I agree Jomo, think we need a good blocker, but damn..can't we get 1 that can do both? I think we may grab a decent TE in the draft this year after we address the OL

    I think we are too short on $$ to get both which means we need to choose. That means we bring in a stud blocker who will come cheap ie < $1M.

    would cost way too much money and i don't believe this team values TE's that highly to be honest. Maybe one day

    I'd like that. He's a solid inline guy, which bodes well for us.

    They would if they had a guy like Jimmy Graham.

    Just to be safe, though, I'd like KG to be...gone...if we got Graham, lol.
