NEW YORK (WFAN) – Kevin Boss has agreed to a multi-year deal with the Oakland Raiders, leaving the Giants with a gaping hole at tight end.
Travis Beckum, who had 13 catches for 116 yards last season, is next on the team’s depth chart.
“It’s disappointing,” said coach Tom Coughlin. “It’s something that occurred very recently, and we were very much involved, but the decision is the decision.”
Boss worked out for Oakland on Wednesday. Raiders backup quarterback Jordan LaSecla threw passes his way for about 15 minutes in front of coach Hue Jackson and his staff.
“We wish him well,” Coughlin said.
Boss, who impressed as a rookie in 2007 after Jeremy Shockey fell to injury, had 35 catches for 531 yards and five touchdowns in 2010. He has 119 catches for 1,600 yards — and 18 scores — in four seasons.
