Downing-USA TODAY SportsHere’s a question — Which New York Giants elder statesman, Eli Manning or Zak DeOssie, will be the last man standing from the team’s 2007 Super Bowl title?The safe money might be on DeOssie, the 35-year-old long snapper entering his 13th NFL season. He just seems to keep on going ... and going ... and going.Let’s look a little bit at DeOssie as we continue our player-by-player look at the 90-man roster the Giants will bring to training camp.The basicsHeight: 6-foot-5Weight: 250Position: Long snapperAge: 35Experience: 122018 season in reviewDeOssie played in all 16 games for the Giants, the 11th time he has appeared in every game. The only season he missed any time was in 2015 when a wrist injury limited him to 12 games. DeOssie had three solo tackles, amazingly his first tackles since 2014. If he delivered any errant snaps Daniel Jones Jersey Draft , I can’t recall them.2019 outlook There really isn’t any reason to think DeOssie won’t continue as the team’s snapper. Taybor Pepper is in camp, but probably not a threat. Pepper did snap for the Green Bay Packers for four games in 2017. Undrafted free agent Jake Carlock (LIU Post) also has significant snapping experience.Why, though, try to fix something that isn’t broken? Only two long snappers, Don Muhlbach of the Detroit Lions (15 seasons) and John Denney of the Miami Dolphins (14 seasons) are longer-tenured, per longsnap.com The New York Giants are set at tight end, right?That was the question Daniel Jones NFL Jersey , asked after Dan and I got finished recording our review of the Giants’ win over the Washington Redskins, which ultimately resulted in this podcast. Since our first foray into taking an advance look at the 2019 NFL Draft by talking quarterbacks with Mark Schofield (a podcast which everyone should listen to, and go back and listen to again if you already have. And yes Mark, I FINALLY got Red Dead 2), Dan and I have used our second show every week to talk about college football and the upcoming draft. This week we decided to take a slightly different track. As it stands now, the Giants are set at tight end with Evan Engram and Rhett Ellison. But will they be set at the position by the time the 2019 NFL Draft rolls around?Rhett Ellison will be making nearly $6 million in 2019, and while he is a reliable (though far from scary) receiver Daniel Jones NFL Draft , his primary role in the Giants’ offense has been as a blocker. Evan Engram, meanwhile has been used as a glorified safety blanket who has only been productive thanks to his (frankly) insane ability after the catch. Could the Giants decide to make Ellison a cap casualty as they pursue free agents at other positions? And could Dave Gettleman trade Engram because the Giants’ coaching staff can’t seem to figure out how to use a tight end who isn’t an undersized offensive tackle? And if so... Then what? Today we ask those questions.In this podcast we discussThe state of the tight end positionWill Rhett Ellison be a cap casualty? Are the Giants using Evan Engram to his fullest potential? Could the Giants trade Engram? Which tight end prospects might be worth watching if the Giants create a hole for themselves? - Irv Smith Jr. (Alabama)- Noah Fant (Iowa)- T.J.
