Giants Now: Daniel Bellinger, Jack Stoll attend Tight End University


Daniel Bellinger, Jack Stoll attend Tight End University

For the fourth consecutive year, current and former NFL tight ends are gathering for Tight End University.

Among the participants in Nashville this week were Daniel Bellinger and Jack Stoll. This marks the third straight year in which Bellinger has attended the tight end festivities.

"Founded in 2021 by NFL Tight Ends George Kittle, Travis Kelce and Greg Olsen, Tight End University was created to bring the Tight End community together for an immersive three-day program," it states on the Tight End University website. "Over the course of the summit, attendees are able to bond, collaborate with, and learn amongst their peers while participating in a variety of activities including film study, on-field drills, recovery, rehabilitation, and more. In addition to current players, TEU also features several retired legends who provide attendees with the invaluable opportunity to learn from some of the best to ever play the game."

Bellinger caught 25 passes for 255 yards last season after reeling in 30 passes for 268 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie.

Stoll, who signed with the Giants back in March, has 20 receptions for 183 yards across his first three seasons, all of which were played with the Philadelphia Eagles.

"I've been focusing on route running stuff more. Of course, I needed to step up in every area of my game. I've been focusing on the pass side of the game, taking strides that way, and taking steps in the run game..." Bellinger told the media during minicamp about how he's been training this offseason. "I am ready to take a step and do whatever they need me to do and do it better. Anything they want me to do, I want to take a step and get better and make sure they build that trust and confidence we have been doing the last couple of years, but take another step in that, take another step in growing."

Following the retirement of Darren Waller, the Giants have six tight ends that will be competing for roster spots this summer.

In addition to Bellinger and Stoll, the tight end room consists of rookie fourth-round pick Theo Johnson along with veterans Lawrence Cager, Chris Manhertz and Tyree Jackson.

"They've done a really good job," head coach Brian Daboll said about the team's tight ends during minicamp. "(Tight end coach) Tim Kelly's been a great addition to our staff. Really does a good job leading those guys. They're all conscientious guys, have good ability. They can play multiple positions, so it will be a good training camp."
