Question 11: Who will win the tight end competition?

MICHAEL EISEN: How about no one? And I don’t say that snidely or to confirm many fans’ fears that the Giants lack talent at that position. The Giants currently have five tight ends, none of whom is head and shoulders above the other four.

That suggests playing time at the position will eventually be a shared arrangement, dictated by game plans, formations, opponents and play-calling. It’s unlikely that one player will play enough or produce the kind of numbers that will make him an obvious No. 1 at the position. Adrien Robinson and rookie free agent Xavier Grimble are two players to watch when training camp opens.

JOHN SCHMEELK: Can I flip a coin or engage them all in a challenging game of rock, scissors, paper? I really have no idea. I’ll go with my dark horse, Daniel Fells. He has more receptions than all the other tight ends on the roster and has soft hands and a good attitude.
