ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the New York Giants are expected to sign tight end Levine Toilolo once free agency begins.

The 28-year-old Toilolo was originally drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He played in Atlanta for five years before being signed by the Detroit Lions in 2018 and the San Francisco 49ers in 2019.

Despite having a massive catch radius at 6-foot-8, with 34 12 inch arms and 10 14 inch hands, Toilolo has never been much of a factor in the passing game. He has only eclipsed 30 receptions once, and never had more than 265 yards or 2 touchdowns in a season.

Toilolo was used as a blocker in San Francisco’s offense, spending most of the year as the second tight end behind George Kittle. Pro Football Focus ranked Toilolo as the 26th-best run blocker among tight ends last year.
