Giants' roster outlook: tight ends | #TogetherBlue


We're doing a series to provide an outlook on the Giants' roster until training camp arrives. Episode 4, tight ends


Remember when we said a few weeks ago that, while Evan Engram disappointed as a Giants player, he was still a talented guy? Well, New York fans might take a look on the roster and miss Engram, because what they have now definitely isn't an improvement.


Jordan Akins is set to be the number one tight end, but he never really break out when he was with the Houston Texans, mostly operating as a number two tight end. For now, he's fighting for the starting spot with seasoned veteran Ricky Seals-Jones, who also never made many numbers during his playing career and finds himself with an unclear situation in New York.


There's some expectation on rookie Daniel Bellinger to earn more snaps as the season goes on. A fourth-round pick, Bellinger wasn't the most popular pick back in the draft, but it's not like he's going to have an impossible competition to win the starting job. If he manages to leapfrog Akins and Seals-Jones for the starting spot, the pick will feel much better.


But, seriously, there's no way that you can look at this group and feel confident if you're a Giants fan.


Tight end room grade: 2/5. There's uncertainty about who's going to be the starter, but it's not like there are two very good players. The hope is that anyone breaks out and have the season of his life, but it's not a good bet.
