Giants Potential Free Agent Target: Jacob Tamme, TE, Colts

In Peyton Manning's last healthy season, 2010, Jacob Tamme filled in at tight end for an injured Dallas Clark for much of the season and wound up with 67 receptions for the Indianapolis Colts. Without Manning last season, and with Clark back, Tamme caught just 19 passes.

The 6-foot-4, 234-pounder, who will be 27 on March 15, will hit the free-agent market next Tuesday. How would he look trading his Colts blue for Giants blue, and catching passes from Eli Manning instead of Peyton Manning?

Tamme might not be big enough to be an every down in-line tight end. He might, however, be the type of H-Back or moving tight end who could replace Travis Beckum -- and improve on Beckum's productivity. Tamme probably isn't going to require a mega-contract either, which would make him a decent candidate for the salary-cap handcuffed Giants.

NFL.com says Tamme "has shown flashes of brilliance." Sporting News says "Tamme isn't necessarily a consistent starter, but he would work well in a two-tight offense."

Thoughts, Giants fans?
