In the last five years, the NFC East has certainly established itself as a division with great depth at tight end. To each TE, a legend has been forged in the memory of fans and players alike. Performances like Chris Cooley’s three first half touchdowns vs. Dallas, or Jason Witten scrambling for the endzone helmet-less, or Kevin Boss filling in for the injured Jeremy Shockey. The NFC has definitely got the cream of the crop when it comes to tight ends.
The four NFC East writers have come together and formed a panel to select the two best players in each of the skill positions. We unanimously selected Jason Witten as the first of two tight ends we will have represent our division.
Witten, has been the leader when it comes to performance and statistics. But that should not sell the other tight ends short. Chris Cooley, in my opinion is right up there with him. However, Brent Celek had a great 2009 and Kevin Boss remains a to be a quiet go to guy in New York. Don’t forget about Fred Davis, who had a breakout year in 2009 for an injured Chris Cooley.
So fans, who should it be? You’re vote determines the second tight end slot.
Remember Jason Witten has already been selected, cast your vote for who should be second.
