Pro Football Focus is back with some more numbers about drop percentages. Last time out, it was rough news for Eagles fans when they found out that DeSean Jackson led the NFL in drop percentage among WRs. Thins time around, it's Giants' fans time to take their medicine.

Giants' TE Kevin Boss led all NFL TEs in drop percentage, with a whopping 23.91% of catchable balls thrown his way dropped. You may remember that DeSean Jackson led WRs with 19.67%.

But that's not even what's really ugly about this. Not only was Boss the worst TE in terms of drop percentage last year, he was the worst by a wide margin. As I said, he dropped 23.91% of catchable balls (11 total drops). The second worst, the Patriots' Aaron Hernandez, dropped just 16.36%. In other words, Boss was epically bad catching the ball last season.

That said, we don't have too much room to gloat as Eagles fans. Brent Celek came in with the 10th highest drop percentage at 10.2%. However, he was credited with just 5 drops. Two fewer drops would have put him close to the bottom 10.

Celek does not however make the list of the TEs with the 10 worst drop percentages over the past two seasons, but a few NFC East TEs do. Kevin Boss is obviously on the list (#10), Martellus Bennett of the Cowboys (#5), and Fred Davis of the Redskins is actually the worst over the past two seasons dropping 15.29% of the catchable balls thrown his way.

Not surprisingly, Jason Witten is among the leagues' best in terms of drop percentage.
