A week ago, tight end Bear Pascoe was still waiting to place his signature on a brand new contract, and now he has done exactly that. Per NFLPA records, he and the New York Giants have agreed to a one-year, $715,000 deal that will keep Pascoe in blue through the 2013 season.
The news that Pascoe would be re-signed first came via his Father, Sean Pascoe, who told the Porterville Recorder his son would have to settle for a contract significantly smaller than he would have liked.
“I don’t think he’ll be getting what they were hoping,” Sean said at the time. “At least he’s got a job, that’s the main thing.”
Since joining the Giants in 2009, Pascoe has been a versatile asset, filling in at both tight end and fullback. In 50 career games, he's hauled in 26 receptions for 252 yards and a touchdown. However, more valuable than anything he's done on the field, Pascoe has an incredible work ethic that helps motivate his teammates and younger players.
Now that Pascoe has re-signed, the Giants have 25 more soon-to-be free agents to deal with.
