In case you forgot, tight end Jack Tabb started the injury train for the New Orleans Saints back in August. Tabb suffered a torn ACL during practice after going up to make a touchdown reception.
Before all of that happened, Tabb was impressing in drills and practice. He was able to get past linebackers and safeties on routes, and was becoming one to watch. The UNC Tar Heels rookie never saw game action, but enters 2016 fully recovered from his injury. It couldn’t come at a better time too, as the Saints face free agency with their three starters: Ben Watson, Josh Hill, and Michael Hoomanawanui.
Tabb isn’t the only tight end on the roster, as RaShaun Allen and Chris Manhertz are currently under contract. However, the good news for Tabb is that the competition looks to be wide open.
