Don't we need a backup TE?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm just thinking we need some one solid behind Graham cracker crunch. Jumbo packages, any 2 TE sets, ect......

Yeah, I've been mentioning it as one of our needs in a few different threads. That is definitely a position that needs some attention.

We've been looking. Those blocking TE's aren't too hard to find... no rush. There's also a lot of nice TE prospects that can be had in the later rounds of the draft.

I'm even thinking we can pick up an undrafted guy for the cheap.

It looks like a buyer's market in many positions this year. Shouldn't be a problem finding one. I think a good LT could be a bit more pressing of a need and a bit harder to acquire.

I am slightly worried about Graham's ability to stay healthy especially if we have no depth here. We need a guy who can be a receiving threat and we need to improve blocking at this position. Kevin Boss would be a nice target for both aspects.
