Bear Pascoe has made the most of his last 12 months.
The tight end received a Super Bowl ring, caught his first career touchdown pass, is set to be married in June, and now, returns to the Giants for another run with the team.
“We sat down and talked about it for a little bit and the bottom line is I love it here,” Pascoe recently told Giants.com. “I love the team, I love the coaches, the organization. It couldn’t be any better. So I wanted to come back and be a part of a great team and be a part of a great chance to maybe get back to that Super Bowl.”
In the meantime, Pascoe, who split the position primarily with Martellus Bennett in 2012, knows what he has to work on this offseason heading into his fifth year with New York.
“I’m really going to work on foot quickness,” he said. “That seems to be something that keeps being brought up, and for myself, I think that’s really something I need to work on. Just come back, work as hard as I can and do anything I can to make this a better team and do whatever I can to help us win games.”
Despite missing the postseason, the Giants improved offensively in some categories in 2012 with the help of Pascoe, whose value is in the run game. The Giants went from an NFL-worst 3.5 yards per rushing attempt in 2011 to an average of 4.6 last season, which was seventh in the league.
However, it wasn’t enough as Pascoe and his teammates try to solve their problems heading into 2013.
“As a team, it’s just being clued into details and everybody doing their job – not trying to do more or less than the other guy,” Pascoe said. “Especially as far as offense goes, just guys [need to] be clued into what they have to do on every play and then getting their job done.”
