Rivera: We have to find a tight end who can do it all: For years Carolina Panthers have been clammoring... http://tinyurl.com/4u9goev


Notable Free Agent tight ends. The list is actually impressive. This is something that can definitly be attained through free agents.

Zach Miller (OAK) – Miller is without a doubt the Raiders top offensive target. He’s a reliable target who has produced at a high level without a legitimate starting quarterback. Unlike many of the hybrid tight ends around the league, Miller is also a good blocker with a very bright future ahead of himself.

Marcedes Lewis (JAC) – The 6’6, 275-pound Lewis had a breakout season as a reliable red zone target. His size creates mismatches down the seam and opens up room underneath. He isn’t an elite tight end, but is the most consistent receiver on the Jaguars. Given the struggles the Jaguars have had in finding dependable offensive weapons since the Jimmy Smith/Keenan McCardell days, they’ll look to re-sign Lewis. Like Miller, Lewis is also a well-rounded tight end.

Owen Daniels, HOU – Daniels was on a sizzling pace in 2009 before injury cut short a spectacular season. Over the last quarter of 2010, he showed some of the same promise that he could soon be an elite pass-catching TE once again. Still, the injury last year cost Daniels a lot of coin.

Kevin Boss, NYG – Boss is a well-rounded tight end in line with the Giants emphasis on the running game. Though opportunities have been somewhat limited by the success of the Giants receiving corps, Boss has been reliable and effective when thrown to. He’s the perfect tight end for the Giants offense and an integral cog in both the rushing and passing attack.


Boss sounds like he would be a very good fit.

wait is Zach Miller seriously going to be available? I can't see Oakland letting him go, but if they do we HAVE to jump on that. The guy has what it takes to be one of the elite TE's out there.

I hope he gives Barnidge the chance to be that guy. I have never felt that Fox and Davidson gave him much of a chance to succeed. He has the size and speed to be that all around guy.

Miller would be nice. He is Young yet has experience and on a crappier team so he might be able to come here. He is only 1 inch smaller than Lewis so he has great size too.

I can't take this thread seriously with all of the "well rounded tight end" jargon going on.

The one thing that I've gathered from JR's presser is that he wants to win. This is no longer a 'JR is cheap' mode for the Panthers.

Oh I never saw it, I hope you're right though. We have a ton of money in the pot and can do a lot with it. Starting with one of these TE's.

I would settle for an efficient pocket passing QB, with good arm strength, accuracy, and pocket presence. But that's just me.
