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.

      35 catches for 531 yards and five touchdowns …wrote the wrong stats…..they will find a vetran to play cheap

    I’lll miss the kid, he had a big heart and was a good player…that being said, he’s not worth $4mil a year.

    The Giants will find a suitable replacement…hell they may already have, with Ben Patrick

    The Giants called his bluff and lost. Good luck filling the gaping hole in the offense Reese. Guess you’ve got some money freed up to pay Osi now. Someone got caught lying again…

    Do these players really want to wins Games? Why go to a team going nowhere as long as Al Davis is still there? I’m sure the Giants were working hard to keep him as they have no one else better to play the position.. Big problem now for the Gmen.

    Letting this guy go was a mistake not a flashy player but too many changes to the line and switching TE’s not going to help.
