The New England Patriots will have the best tight ends in the NFL on the field in 2021. Head coach Bill Belichick brought Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry to New England. The team struggled following Rob Gronkowski’s departure and Patriots tight ends hit the rock bottom in 2020. Belichick didn’t like any of that, so he brought Henry and Smith to the team. Jonnu and Henry are joining the best players at their position for the university this year.
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle and retired tight end Greg Olsen founded Tight End University. Talented quarterbacks are more than excited to be part of the program. According to latest updates, tight ends will meet up June 23-25 in Nashville.
Jonnu and Henry will join great TE players at the university
Kelce, Kittle, Olsen, Smith, Henry, the Detroit Lions’ T.J. Hockenson, the Las Vegas Raiders’ Darren Waller, the Green Bay Packers’ Robert Tonyan, the Denver Broncos’ Noah Fant, the Philadelphia Eagles’ Zach Ertz, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Eric Ebron, the Baltimore Ravens’ Mark Andrews, the Miami Dolphins’ Mike Gesicki, the Cleveland Browns’ David Njoku, Atlanta Falcons rookie Kyle Pitts, the Chicago Bears’ Cole Kmet, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ O.J. Howard and the New York Giants’ Evan Engram will attend this year’s summit.
Great group of tight ends, right?
Ebron took to Twitter to invite Jacksonville Jaguars tight end and former quarterback Tim Tebow.
Smith and Henry signed with the Patriots in free agency this offseason. Many NFL analysts agree that they are the best tight end duo in the league. Belichick did an amazing job this offseason. Getting Smith and Henry was a big move and Belichick did his best to get them.
Let’s see how will the Patriots adjust their formula. Cam Newton will be leading the offense. Mac Jones joined the Patriots in the 2021 NFL Draft. Brian Hoyer signed another deal with the team, too.
