How would you like the new tight end for the New York Giants to be the old tight end for the New York Giants? No, not the old-old one who plays for the Carolina Panthers. I am talking about Kevin Boss.

Reports surfaced today via ESPN that the Oakland Raiders are going to release Boss, who they lured away from the Giants last summer with a four-year, $16-million contract that included a $6 million guarantee.

Boss played in 14 games last season and had 28 receptions for 368 yards and three touchdowns. He suffered a concussion and a knee injury during the season. Boss had 33, 42 and 35 receptions in three seasons as the Giants starting tight end.

Boss did not burn any bridges when leaving the Giants, and his release by the Raiders might bring the Giants to a logical replacement for the injured Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum.

Thoughts, Giants fans?
