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.

Re: Don't we need a backup TE?

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.

Re: Don't we need a backup TE?

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.
