NFC South tight ends are frequent targets

Last week, I wrote about how the NFC South is loaded with talented pass-catching tight ends. This week, there’s even more evidence to support that.

New Orleans’ Jimmy Graham has moved into the lead as the NFL’s most-targeted tight end. He’s been targeted 48 times, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The rest of the division’s tight ends aren’t far behind.

Atlanta’s Tony Gonzalez is No. 3 with 39 targets and Tampa Bay’s Kellen Winslow (36 targets) is No. 4.

Carolina’s Greg Olsen is tied for No. 7 with 32 targets. Jeremy Shockey, who shares time with Olsen is tied for No. 16 with 26 targets.
