The Footballguys staff was asked to mention their most significant veteran tight end who changed teams over the offseason. Most significant can have a lot of meaning, so - in this case - it means we just asked our guys to pick the tight end they most wanted to write about. Here are the results.

Coby Fleener, New Orleans
Haseley: The Saints have a multitude of receiving weapons this year, including highly touted rookie wide receiver Michael Thomas, so it's possible there may not be as much action for the tight end as last year, especially in the middle of the field. Having said that, the tight end position in the Saints offense has long been the queen of the chess board. We saw it last year with Ben Watson having a career year in the first season without Jimmy Graham. Watson left via free agency (Baltimore) and the Saints brought in Coby Fleener to fill the void. History suggests Fleener will at worst have a decent fantasy year, provided he's the primary receiving threat, which all indications suggest he will be. At best, he has a career year in another solid outing from the Saints tight end position.
