Go Giants! Eli is still yo daddy (even in retirement)!
Get that crap outta here. (just kidding ... sort of )
The Gronk trade kinda p---es me off, regardless of the return. The Patriots really could have used Gronk last season. Like REALLY could’ve used him. And now he goes to a team that doesn’t really need him.
And it seems like it would’ve made sense for Belichick to get back Brate or Howard in return. Unless Belichick gets a decent TE in the draft, NE will have the suckiest TE position in the league for the second straight year. That'll really help Stidham.
I feel like we might be content with another garbage TE year considering the crop of TE prospects in 2021.
Pat Freiermuth is a big 6'5" 256lbs who is really good at getting touchdowns. He also has really great versatility, lining up all over the field. He seems to be better than Mike Gesicki was at the same stage (used for comparison as he's a fellow Penn TE). He's also the best blocker of this group.
Brevin Jordan goes to Tight End U, and he's getting lots and lots of hype. He isn't huge, but he's fast, got great separation and good ball skills. However, his blocking needs work, like lots of young TE's.
The last guy is Kyle Pitts. He blurs the line between TE and WR, but he's 6'6" and 240. Freakish athleticism, and could have the best potential of the bunch.
