Looking for the 2019 Eric Ebron? Free Agent TE Landing Spots

A year ago, the Detroit Lions took the decision to rid themselves of Eric Ebron, after a fairly underwhelming run in the Motor City. Ebron landed with the Indianapolis Colts, and people wondered whether he would be able to coexist with the incumbent Jack Doyle, to become a productive member of their offense. Well, for a variety of reasons, Ebron enjoyed the breakout season that he was never able to have with the Lions. Ebron set career highs in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. He posted a 66-750-13 line, with his 13 scores leading all tight ends. This can be the way it goes at the TE position, sometimes a place a player calls home first is not the place he should call home best. A move can make all the difference. With this in mind, I thought it prudent to take a look at the TEs who, like Ebron a year ago, find themselves on new teams after the first wave of NFL free agency. Could any of them have a season like Ebron, now that they find themselves in a new city, in a new uniform, with a new quarterback? I mean, Ebron has shown it’s possible. But is it likely, among this group of players? Let’s look at some of the candidates.
