A look at the Giants options for Tight Ends through Free Agency and the NFL Draft

There’s no way around it: tight end is currently a question mark for the Giants.

But that can be answered in free agency or the draft. Or both. That’s what they are there for.

As it stands, the roster has two returning players at the position, whose production adds up to three catches for 31 yards, all coming from Larry Donnell. The other, Adrien Robinson, has played in just three games since being drafted in the fourth round by the Giants in 2012.


Additionally, the Giants parted ways with Brandon Myers after he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers early in free agency. In his only season with Big Blue last year, Myers was the team’s third-leading receiver in receptions (47), fourth in receiving yards (522), and tied for second with four touchdowns.

That leaves quite a void to fill in 2014.

But before Myers left, though, the Giants took advantage of the expanded offseason roster and signed veteran Daniel Fells shortly after the end of the 2013 regular season. Fells most recently played for the New England Patriots, who released him before last season, after stints with Denver (2011), St. Louis (2008-10), and Atlanta (2006). In six seasons, Fells’ career numbers include 92 catches for 1,086 yards and eight touchdowns in 71 games.

As those three players compete in the coming months, we take a look at some of the Giants’ possible options in the 2014 NFL Draft (May 8-10), while seeing who’s still out there on the free agency market.’s Top Free-Agent Tight Ends Available (2013 Team)
