The New York Giants took a little bit of a blow today, as former tight end Kevin Boss signed a new contract with the Oakland Raiders. According to Adam Schefter who originally broke the story, Boss' new contract is for four-years and will pay about $16 million over the duration.
In 15 games for the Giants last year, Boss caught 35 passes for 531 yards and five touchdowns. Boss has played in at least 13 games in each of his four seasons in New York.
Boss' departure leaves Jake Ballard, Travis Beckum, Christian Hopkins, Bear Pascoe and Ben Patrick at the tight end position for the Giants. Beckum will probably be the starter, considering he caught two touchdown passes last year, but the Giants will likely treat their tight end position as a committee this upcoming season.
