Giants fans will enjoy some heated battles during training camp this summer especially at the tight end position. Matt Lacosse has been quietly creeping up the team's depth chart and garnering praise from the coaching staff.
Larry Donnell is fully recovered from his neck and back ailments that caused him to miss the end of the 2015 season, but it's unlikely that he'll be plugged in at starter.
Big Blue caught lightning in a bottle with Will Tye last season, but he doesn't exactly have a stranglehold on the position. Sixth round pick Jerell Adams has all of the physical tools to become a viable threat, but with no NFL experience and in his first year in Ben McAdoo's system, it will be an uphill battle for the South Carolina product.
The opportunity for Lacosse to make a legitimate run at the starting gig is right in front of him and the former Illinois standout spoke with The Giants Beat about his situation heading into minicamp.
