Giants Free Agency 2012: Former Giants TE Kevin Boss Reportedly To Be Released By Raiders

Former New York Giants tight end Kevin Boss will be released by the Oakland Raiders, according to a report (via ESPN New York).

The Raiders were able to lure Boss away as a free agent last summer. Boss did not produce big numbers (28 receptions, 368 yards, 3 touchdowns) in 14 games for the Raiders in 2011, but he was also injured last season (knee, concussion). The Giants are of course in the market for a tight end now that both Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum will miss time while they recover from ACL surgeries.

Could a reunion be possible for Boss and the Giants? After his rookie season in 2007, Boss caught at least 33 passes and five touchdowns for the Giants from 2008-2010. That kind of steady production at the tight end position helps the Giants passing game work. Who could be a better offseason acquisition than a tight end who already knows the team?
