From Mike Garafolo’s Twitter Account:

TE Travis Beckum’s contract (announced on Mon) is a 4-yr deal worth $2.363m with a playing time escalator in 4th yr from $565k to $1.308m.

Beckum played linebacker and defensive end in his first season with the Badgers before switching to tight end.

In three years on offense, Beckum played in 30 games with 20 starts and caught 159 passes for 2,149 yards (13.5-yard avg.) and 11 touchdowns. His 159 catches rank third in school history behind Lee Evans (175, 1999-2003) and Brandon Williams (202, 2002-05) and broke the previous Wisconsin tight end record of 121 catches by Pat Richter (1960-62). Beckum’s 75 receptions in 2007 tied Evans (2001) for the school season-record.

Last year, Beckum was a preseason first-team All-America but was limited to six games and four starts because of a fractured left fibula suffered in the Illinois game, an injury that required surgery. He still caught 23 passes for 264 yards.

Beckum is expected to handle a receiving role at tight end for the Giants and because of a lack of size at the receiver position, he could see time in the slot and out wide.
