  Seahawks | Travis Beckum signs    Mon Feb 10, 06:33 PM

The Seattle Seahawks signed free-agent TE Travis Beckum (Giants) to a reserve/futures deal Monday, Feb. 10.

Footballguys view: Beckum is a move tight end who can make plays after the catch. His pro career has been bothered by the injury bug which followed him from his college days at Wisconsin. He was out of football last year, and there's no guarantee he'll make the final roster.

  Giants | Travis Beckum to miss Week 17     Wed Dec 26, 01:26 PM

New York Giants TE Travis Beckum (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 26, and will not play Week 17.

Footballguys view: Beckum was injury prone in college at Wisconsin and he's been injury prone during his brief pro career. Even in super deep dynasty leagues he has little to no fantasy value.

Footballguys view: Ahmad Bradshaw is active. The Giants will likely go with a hot hand approach at running back today, so both he and David Wilson are just flex plays.

  Giants | Travis Beckum activated     Sat Nov 3, 01:03 PM

The New York Giants have activated TE Travis Beckum (knee) from the Physically Unable to Perform list. In a corresponding move, the team waived OG Mitch Petrus.

Footballguys view: Beckum is a talented move TE but injuries and inconsistencies have marred his pro career so far. He'll serve as a backup behind Martellus Bennett and won't be much of a fantasy factor unless injuries strike the depth chart.

  Giants | Not ruling Travis Beckum out for Week 8    Fri Oct 26, 09:25 PM

  Giants | Travis Beckum could be activated    Mon Oct 22, 06:41 PM

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said TE Travis Beckum (knee) could be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list this week.

Footballguys view: They could use a talent like Beckum if he's healthy enough to play. He's been injury prone dating back to his days in college, but creates mismatches when he's on the field because of his size/speed combination.

  Giants | Travis Beckum adds weight    Wed Jun 13, 02:23 PM

New York Giants TE Travis Beckum said he has gained 20 pounds this offseason and is up to 242 pounds. He said it has been hard for him to put on weight and that feels better with the added weight.

Footballguys view: Beckum could actually still be the team's primary receiving tight end with Martellus Bennett bulked up, but he has to come all the way back an ACL tear suffered in the Super Bowl, which will be very tough.

  Giants | Travis Beckum aims to return in Week 1     Mon May 7, 11:07 AM

New York Giants TE Travis Beckum (knee) said he hopes to be ready for the start of the 2012 season. 'If everything works out, yeah,' Beckum said. 'I'm just working hard and getting it healthy.' Beckum is two months removed from knee surgery and is moving without crutches, but with the help of a knee brace.

Footballguys view: It's nice that Beckum can recover this quickly from a knee injury. However, he's a player that has been injury prone dating back to his days in college. Beckum's and Jake Ballard's injured knees are a big reason why the Giants added Martellus Bennett in free agency.

  Giants | Eli Manning wants to replace offensive weapons    Tue Apr 24, 01:37 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning is hoping the team drafts some more offensive firepower in this year's NFL Draft after they lost RB Brandon Jacobs and WR Mario Manningham to the San Francisco 49ers. 'When we go into the draft, that could be an area we try to attack,' Manning. 'Get a skill-position guy who can help us get carries, get catches, in some ways get that same production from the guys we lost last year.' Manning said Stanford TE Coby Fleener could be a target after the team lost both TEs Jake Ballard (knee) and Travis Beckum (knee) to knee injuries in the Super Bowl.

Footballguys view: We could see the Giants selecting a TE like Dwayne Allen (Clemson) with the 32nd overall pick. They may also be interested in RB Doug Martin (Boise State) with that pick.

  Giants | Travis Beckum doing well in rehab    Sat Apr 21, 01:02 PM

New York Giants TE Travis Beckum (knee) said he is doing well in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament but will not rush his recovery. He would like to be ready for the start of the regular season but would not be angry if he started the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Good news here. However, Beckum is an injury prone player who may have to begin the season on the PUP List. When healthy he'll be competing with new addition Martellus Bennett in training camp.

  Giants | Travis Beckum thinks he could be ready for season    Wed Apr 4, 05:37 PM

New York Giants TE Travis Beckum (knee) said on his Twitter page that he recently met with a doctor and that there is a chance he could be ready for the start of the regular season even though he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the Super Bowl.

Footballguys view: This is very optimistic on Beckum's part. He may be ready by week 1, but he's a player that has been oft-injured in both his college and pro career. The Giants added Martellus Bennett in free agency and may also add a TE in the 2012 NFL Draft.

  Giants | Travis Beckum had ACL surgery this week    Sat Feb 25, 11:27 PM

New York Giants TE Travis Beckum (knee) had surgery Tuesday, Feb. 21, to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

  Giants | Jake Ballard has serious knee injury    Tue Feb 7, 05:43 PM

New York Giants TE Jake Ballard (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the second half of Super Bowl XLVI. Ballard could start the 2012 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list alongside TE Travis Beckum (knee).

Footballguys view: The Giants could be in the market for a free agent TE this offseason. The TE draft class is not that deep, but a guy like Dwayne Allen (Clemson) makes sense as a late first-round pick.
