Report: Giants to sign ex-Bills TE Tommy Sweeney

by Dan Benton

The New York Giants are reportedly adding to their tight ends room, with the team set to sign former Buffalo Bills tight end, Tommy Sweeney.

The news comes from ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, who did not immediately reveal the length or financials of the deal.

Sweeney appeared in 24 games (four starts) over four years in Buffalo, totaling 18 catches for 165 yards and one touchdowns in that span. He missed the entire 2020 campaign after being diagnosed with myocarditis.

As far as where Sweeney fits with the Giants, he’ll be competing for one of the depth spots at tight end behind Darren Waller and Daniel Bellinger.

Sweeney has never proven to be much of a pass-catcher, and his history as a blocker isn’t much better, at least according to Pro Football Focus.

The 27-year-old has posted run-blocking grades of 61.1, 58.5 and 65.7, respectively in the three seasons he’s played, and pass-blocking grades of 21.4, 58.5 and 54.5. Those grades come via relatively small sample sizes, though.
