Levine Toilolo will have a hard time making the Giants’ final roster
New York Giants’ tight ends Evan Engram, Kaden Smith, Kyle Rudolph and Levine Toilolo all attended a tight end summit called “Tight End University,” hosted by George Kittle of the San Francisco 49ers, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and former NFL tight end Greg Olsen.
“There’s a holiday [National Tight Ends Day on the last Sunday of October], so why don’t we have a tight end summit? Why not have a little time where we can come together and learn from the best in the country,” the San Francisco 49ers’ tight end George Kittle told ESPN.
“There are QB camps and other positions that steal the attention. But the tight end role has become a prominent role throughout the league, too,” added Olsen.
Toilolo loved his time at the summit.
“It’s been awesome on and off the field with guys like Marcedes Lewis and Greg Olsen who have been around it for a long time,” Toilolo said. “To get together and hang out, pick each other’s brains, see what they see, and break things down is great. This is the first of its kind for tight ends. I got the invitation and it was pure excitement. It’s something special.”
Toilolo is going to have a hard time making the Giants’ 53-man roster with Rudolph now in the mix. If I had to make a guess I think the three tight ends that New York will keep is is Smith, Rudolph and Engram.
If Toilolo doesn’t end up staying with the Giants, I’m sure another team will come calling. He’s a solid player that hopefully got better from the tight end summit.
