New York Giants Training Camp: Jerry Reese Likes His Tight Ends, Roster

The New York Giants have been going through tight ends in recent years like nobody's business.

Despite that type of turnover at a key position, Eli Manning and the team haven't skipped a beat, winning two Super Bowls and becoming the toast of New York.

Last year it appeared the team might have had a long-term solution in Jake Ballard. Unfortunately, Ballard blew out his knee in the Super Bowl and was released, opening up a spot for ex-Dallas Cowboy Martellus Bennett.

When asked about his tight ends on Saturday, general manager Jerry Reese says he likes how that position is coming along.

"We have some big guys. Athletes. Somebody is just going to have to step out of the shadows. Bear Pascoe has been around for a long time. He can do a lot of things for us. Martellus Bennett is a new guy on the block. He has some things he can prove. He wants to prove to us. All the young kids. We have some big athletic tight ends that can do the job."

Of course after coming off a championship season, Reese feels good about the team at this point. Although like any good front office man, he's far from content.

"Well, I think it’s a good roster. I think it’s a really good roster. It remains to be seen as to how good we can be. I think we can be strong, and we can be good again. But you have to do it, you can’t talk about it, you have to go out there and do it."
