Pettigrew Gets Better

As expected, Oklahoma State tight end Brandon Pettigrew held an on campus private workout for NFL teams on Friday. Pettigrew, who is still recovering from a hamstring injury suffered last month, ran routes and caught passes during the workout and moved around well.

Attending the workout were the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Carolina Panthers, and New York Jets. Other teams interested in Pettigrew decided not to attend because they are satisfied with his game tape.

Three out of those four teams are in need of help at tight end, but the Jets seemingly are set for a starter at the position with Dustin Keller. However, they could use another tight end since the team released veteran Chris Baker in February.

A team that is need of a major upgrade at tight end, the Atlanta Falcons, have scheduled Pettigrew for a pre-draft visit for early next week.
