But the 31-year-old Heap, who had 40 receptions for 599 yards and five touchdowns in 13 games last season, would be an intriguing option alongside Dustin Keller. The Patriots’ two-headed tight end monster of Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski thrived last season.
Maybe a Keller-Heap combination would be just as productive.
This sounds very intriguing. Instead of the Jets focusing on a WR to replace Braylon, the Jets are going to bring in a second TE. Sound familiar? Eh HEM….. Patriots.
