The Texas A&M Football team had almost zero tight end production outside of Jalen Wydermyer in 2020
If I could just write “Jalen Wydermyer” and leave this slide with that, I would. The Aggies had almost no production whatsoever from the tight end position outside of the star tight end.
Wydermyer, however, had a really strong season, accumulating over 500 yards through the air with 6 touchdown receptions. The big man was a huge threat in the red zone and if not for Ainias Smith, would have been the team’s leading receiver.
Beyond Wydermyer, there isn’t much to speak of for this team and I’m not saying that hyperbolically. Wydermyer had 46 receptions. The rest of the tight ends on this team combined had 3 receptions.
A large part of this can be attributed to the fact that the Texas A&M Football team was supposed to have Cupp around as their number two guy. They put all of their eggs in that basket and it came back to haunt them.
In 2021-22, Cupp should return, which means that for the first time in a while, the Aggies’ will have two serviceable tight ends available.
