The Jacksonville Jaguars were pretty much guaranteed to add some help at the tight end position during free agency and did so by signing veteran Chris Manhertz. And while many expected him to be more so of a blocking tight end, he was one of the players the media praised as a receiver during organized team activities, making him an intriguing player to watch when training camp arrives.

To remain occupied in the meantime, Manhertz was one of many players to attend this year’s Tight End University summit, which is hosted by some of the NFL’s best players like Travis Kelce, George Kittle, and retired tight end, Greg Olsen. Of course, like many positional summits, it’s one where tight ends around the league gather to pick each other’s minds, bringing together both veterans and rookies.

Manhertz could have a nice-sized role with the Jags and the team could also look to get him more involved than he was at Carolina as a receiver (142 career receiving yards). Right now it appears he has a good chance to be near the top of the depth chart behind James O’Shaughnessy, who is the team’s most experienced receiving tight end.
