Giants TEs Jake Ballard and Bear Pascoe won't be mistaken for Patriots TEs Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, but that's fine with the Giants.
The Giants have been a bit thin at tight end all season, even with the breakout performance of starter Jake Ballard.
Down the list of concerns for the suddenly shaky Giants is the matter of the tight end and whether Travis Beckum can fill the bill.
The Giants added necessary depth to the TE position Tuesday promoting Bear Pascoe off their practice squad. To make room for Pascoe, they released LB Bryan Kehl.
The Giants have signed seven players to the practice squad. All seven were with the team for portions of training camp.
The Giants have begun trimming their roster to 53 players with a somewhat surprising deletion: TE Bear Pascoe.
The injury bug has hit the Giants hard at tight end, with four of the team's top five tight ends lost for various lengths of time.
The Giants made a subtle pickup in December, adding TE Bear Pascoe to the roster, and it was a mild surprise that he played ahead of Darcy Johnson at times down the stretch.
