Giants Sign Daniel Coats

With Ben Patrick retiring and Kevin Boss in Oakland, the Giants are in dire straits at tight end. To help fix this, the Giants brought in Daniel Coats. The 6-3, 264 pound Coats last played with Denver. He has 30 career catches in 5 seasons. Coats doesn’t look like much more than an extra body. Don’t be surprised to see a few guys come in to compete.

    i just don’t get it, why not sign someone with real experience, someone who has had more then 30 catches. Can someone please explain this to me

  2. CMH says:

    Sure feels like the front office was not properly prepared with a plan when the lock out ended. Our O line, TE, LB talent is not what it needs to be to make a playoff run. I did like our draft and hope that some of those kids step up.

    I thought the Giants decided not to have a tight end in the starting line up for 2010? They changed their minds?

  4. JW says:

    Dylanroth: They haven’t signed anyone with over 30 catches, because there isn’t anyone with over 30 catches so sign… And if there is, they’re probably to expensive for the Giants to sign.

    What would be a reasonable price for Seattle to ask for Carlson?

    • Jason C. says:

      I’m thinking a 2 and Carlson for Osi, but trades like that RARELY happen (would fit what the Giants want, getting more than a second, and what Seattle wants not giving up a first, but unlikely).
      I would think a 3rd round pick is fair of them to ask, but wouldn’t see the Giants giving up more than a 4th.

    JW: i was thinking someone like john carlson maybe even algea crumpler…they can bring the intangible of being a veteran to the field…

    • Jason C. says:

      Alge could barely move anymore, Ballard is a more effective option at this point, his name makes you think, but this isn’t time to sign brand names with no substance.

  7. Jared says:

    Maybe they’re betting on Beckum. Let’s hope that’s the plan….. at least that would mean there was a plan!

  8. Big Daddy says:

    The plan was probably to sign Boss. The contingency plan walked out of camp, who saw that coming? Anybody who says so is full of it, 20/20 hindsight. It was going to be TE by committee but we lost one of the people in the committee. I’m sure someone will step up or someone still will get cut and we’ll sign him.

    I liked the Ballard signing and was happy we didn’t lose him. He might just be a sleeper. I watched him at Ohio state and was impressed, not a great athlete but a hard worker and has an NFL body. He might just surprise everybody as did Boss. Who knew Boss would become a good TE?

    So I’m not worried about it now…now.
