New York Giants tight end/fullback Bear Pascoe made an early appearance at the TIMEX Performance Center on Monday, and it wasn't just a planned visit. Pascoe has signed his exclusive right tender and will remain with Big Blue for at least the 2012 season.
Without Travis Beckum and Jake Ballard, both of whom are recovering from ACL surgeries, the Giants needed to retain what depth they did have at the tight end position. A versatile Pascoe not only gives them that, it gives them another option at fullback should they need it.
In 16 regular season games last year, Pascoe hauled in 12 receptions for 136 yards. He added another five receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown in the playoffs.
Pascoe will backup newly signed Martellus Bennett. His one-year tender is worth $540,000.
