  Bears | Two players released    Sat Sep 13, 01:51 PM

The Chicago Bears released CB Kelvin Hayden and FB Tony Fiammetta Saturday, Sept. 13.

Footballguys view: Hayden was originally cut at final cuts, but was re-signed at the start of September. Fiammetta got a two-year extension in December of last year. Neither was a factor in the opening week, Fiammetta due to injury (and was already out for this week). The team has other needs with Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall banged up.

  Bears | Thursday practice report    Thu Sep 4, 04:41 PM

Chicago Bears FB Tony Fiammetta (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 4, while S Chris Conte (concussion) and C Brian De La Puente (knee) practiced in full.

Footballguys view: Conte is the big one there, as the Bears need their secondary ready to go. They face a Bills team which isn't all that frightening through the air, but Cone can lend some oomph to the run defense, which struggled last year and will face CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson.

  Patriots | Two battling for FB job    Sat Aug 4, 08:13 PM

New England Patriots FB Spencer Larsen will be trying to hold off FB Eric Kettani for the top spot at fullback during training camp with FB Tony Fiammetta placed on the exempt/left squad list Saturday, Aug. 4. However, it is not a certainty the team will carry a fullback, so neither is guaranteed a roster spot.

Footballguys view: Larsen knows the Josh McDaniels system from their time together with the Broncos. He's also able to play Linebacker and can be a solid special teams player. Kettani may be a more natural blocker, but Larsen seems to be the favorite here.

  Patriots | Tony Fiammetta likely to make team    Mon Jul 23, 11:21 PM

The New England Patriots are likely to keep one fullback, and FB Tony Fiammetta (illness) appears to be the favorite to crack the 53-man roster. He was a help last season to the young back with the Dallas Cowboys before suffering an illness. FB Eric Kettani is considered a long shot to unseat Fiammetta on the depth chart.

Footballguys view: Spencer Larsen is also at the Fullback position, and we think he should make the team as well. Larsen can also play Linebacker, and knows Josh McDaniels system from their time together in Denver.

  Patriots | Tony Fiametta not guaranteed spot    Wed Jun 27, 01:11 PM

New England Patriots FB Tony Fiammetta is not guaranteed a roster spot this season because the team may not want to have a fullback on the roster.

Footballguys view: Fiammetta is a good blocker and decent receiver out of the backfield. However, he can't play both ways the way that fellow FB Spencer Larsen can.

  Patriots | FB might be used more this season    Sun Jun 17, 10:05 PM

New England Patriots FBs Tony Fiammetta and Spencer Larsen will likely be battling for one fullback position in training camp.

Footballguys view: Larsen is a versatile player who can play on both sides of the ball and should contribute as both a Fullback and a Linebacker. The Fullback position may be used a little more than some think because of the uncertainty at the Running Back position. Even with an increased workload we don't see the position having much fantasy relevance.

  Patriots | Tony Fiammetta agrees to terms    Mon Mar 26, 03:53 PM

The New England Patriots have agreed to terms with free-agent FB Tony Fiammetta (Cowboys). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

  Patriots | Tony Fiammetta close to signing     Mon Mar 26, 01:03 PM

The New England Patriots are close to signing free-agent FB Tony Fiammetta (Cowboys), according to a league source.

Footballguys view: The Patriots already signed Spencer Larsen as a free agent FB. With Larsen's ability to play Linebacker, Special Teams, and Fullback we could see Fiammetta as more of a traditional Fullback and receiver out of the backfield.

Footballguys view: Demarco Murray has done better with Fiametta in, so his owners should root for Fiametta's return next week.

Dallas Cowboys FB Tony Fiammetta (illness) has missed the past two games, and it is uncertain if he'll return again this season. He was making a huge difference in the run game, as RB DeMarco Murray rushed for 601 yards, with 8.0 yards per carry, in four games behind Fiammetta. In two games without Fiammetta, Murray has totaled just 160 rushing yards at 3.4 yards per carry.

The team had been using TE John Phillips as the lead blocker with Fiammetta out. Chapas will also likely be used on special teams.

  Cowboys | Two could miss rest of season    Sat Nov 26, 05:08 PM

Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he is not sure if QB Jon Kitna (back) or FB Tony Fiammetta (illness) will be able to play again this season. The team has still not been able to determine the origin of Fiammetta's illness but he has been experiencing nausea when he has tried to practice. Kitna's back has not been responding to treatment.

Footballguys view: If Kitna is shut down for the season then we could see the Cowboys add a veteran QB through free agency. They did put in a bid for Kyle Orton when he hit the waiver wire. The Cowboys want competition for the backup job with third-year QB Stephen McGee.
