Depth chart at tight end looks a little crowded

[UPDATE: Apparently, the answer to the headline is no. Baggett has been cut as the Giants shuffled their roster on Monday, letting six players go and signing six new ones.]

Thanks to the New York Giants undrafted free agent signings, we are now jumping out of alphabetical order to discuss one of the team’s newest players — former East Carolina tight end Stephen Baggett.

Let’s discuss Baggett, one of the 11 undrafted free agents signed before rookie mini-camp, as we continue our look at the 90-man roster the Giants will bring to training camp.

The basics

Age:
Experience: 0
Position: TE
Height: 6-foot-5
Weight: 255

2017 season in review

Baggett does not appear to have been a major factor in the East Carolina passing game, having caught only 11 passes for 105 yards, including a 41-yarder. For his career with the Pirates, he caught 23 passes. There is limited information available about Baggett, but he appears to be primarily a blocking tight end.

2018 outlook

Baggett joins what looks like a crowded tight end competition. Evan Engram, Rhett Ellison and Jerell Adams return. Kyle Carter was acquired from the Minnesota Vikings. Ryan O’Malley was brought back. With that depth chart, perhaps Baggett should be considered a practice squad candidate.
