Top tight end free agents for 2020

What tight ends are available in NFL free agency this off-season? We take you through the best wide receivers your team might end up signing in 2020.

Free agency negotiation period starts today at noon eastern, then on Wednesday, players can officially sign with their respective teams. Below you’ll find our rankings for tight ends available this off-season.

With Hunter Henry getting the franchise tag, Austin Hooper remains as the only strong starting tight end available. Behind him, Eric Ebron has the most raw offensive talent, but is too inconsistent to feel great about him being your team’s starting tight end.

After those two, we’re down to often injured players like Tyler Eifert and Jordan Reed and old tight ends like Jimmy Graham and Delanie Walker, who might not have anything left in the tank.

Hooper is the prize, but still isn’t a tight end who is firmly in the category of Travis Kelce and George Kittle. Paying top dollar for him could be a risk, but he is consistent and is going to make most teams better.
