Some grades for each team’s position groups were recently released and the Arizona Cardinals tight end room was selected as the worst in the NFL.

Claiming the Arizona Cardinals are lacking at the tight end position this year is not a bold statement to make.

But Cardinals fans are still hoping that someone from the team’s tight end room can step up during the upcoming season and emerge as another weapon for the offense.

However, that’s probably going to be pretty difficult since Arizona’s tight ends were recently listed as the worst in the NFL.

When it comes to tight ends, one analyst believes it doesn’t get any worse than what the Arizona Cardinals currently have.

ESPN’s Mike Clay typically releases his grades for each team’s positional group before the start of each season, and this year was no different. His grading scale ranges from 0.1 to 4.0, and overall, the 2021 Cardinals made out pretty well.

According to Clay’s grades, Arizona has the 11th-best roster in the NFL heading into the 2021 season. He has the Cardinals offense ranked 10th and their defense in the No. 15 spot.

One of the most glaring parts of Clay’s grades for Arizona is the mark he gave the team’s group of tight ends. He gave them a grade of 0.1, lower than every other team in the NFL, including the Jacksonville Jaguars who currently have a former quarterback/failed minor league baseball player in Tim Tebow attempting to remain in the league as a tight end.

Historically, the tight end position has never really been a strength of the Cardinals roster. But this year, it seems like it might be as worse as it’s ever been.

Hopefully, Arizona’s lack of skill in their tight end room doesn’t end up being something that prevents them from reaching the playoffs in 2021.
