  Lions | Matthew Mulligan works with starters    Mon Aug 8, 06:41 PM

Detroit Lions TE Matthew Mulligan worked with the first-team offense during practice Monday, Aug. 8, in place of TE Eric Ebron (ankle).

Footballguys view: We just don't think there's a lot of fantasy value in the Lions TE...even when Ebron returns. Veteran WR Anquan Boldin can do more on TE-like routes close to the line of scrimmage.

  Bills | Nick O'Leary not guaranteed of spot    Wed Aug 26, 12:28 AM

Buffalo Bills TE Nick O'Leary is not guaranteed of a spot on the 53-man roster, head coach Rex Ryan said Tuesday, Aug. 25. 'I don't know,' Ryan said. 'I can tell you that is some great competition. I like the way (TE Chris Gragg) has really picked his game up, and (TE MarQueis Gray), obviously (TE Matthew Mulligan) brings you the element of being that tremendous blocker.'

  Bills | Charles Clay not making a good impression    Fri Aug 7, 12:25 PM

Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay, who signed a five-year, $38 million deal in the offseason, has been mostly invisible so far at training camp, according to sources. The tight end group led by TEs Clay, Chris Gragg, Nick O'Leary and Matthew Mulligan haven't been blocking very well, either, leading head coach Rex Ryan to try DT Kyle D. Williams as a tight end for better blocking.

Footballguys view: Clay could be a good fantasy tight end with his skillset and talent, but that's not going to happen in this Buffalo offense this season. If you're looking for a talented tight end with a new team, try the guy who replaced Clay in Miami--Jordan Cameron.

  Bills | Matthew Mulligan signed    Thu Jun 18, 04:29 PM

Free-agent TE Matthew Mulligan (Titans) signed an undisclosed contract with the Buffalo Bills Thursday, June 18.

Footballguys view: Mulligan is not a fantasy option, but he could win a spot on the roster because of his run-blocking ability. The Bills are going to run, run and run some more with superstar LeSean McCoy as the lead back.

  Titans | Make several roster moves    Tue Dec 16, 03:54 PM

The Tennessee Titans placed TE Brett Brackett (knee) on Reserve/Injured and signed TE Matthew Mulligan Tuesday, Dec. 16. Free-agent QB Alex Tanney (Buccaneers) was also added to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Tanney is the trick-shot QB! Look him up on YouTube...it's certainly worth your time. However, he's not worth monitoring in any fantasy league--even super deep dynasty leagues.

The Arizona Cardinals have declared LB Desmond Bishop, RB Michael Bush, LB Kenny Demens, WR Larry Fitzgerald, TE Matthew Mulligan, DT Ed Stinson, DT Alameda Ta'amu inactive for Week 13.

Footballguys view: John Brown and Jaron Brown will both get extra snaps against an easy-to-beat Falcons secondary with Fitzgerald out. John is a good upside flex play, and Jaron is a desperation play that could work out.

  Bears | Dante Rosario leading candidate for No. 2 TE job    Tue Jul 15, 09:00 PM

Chicago Bears TE Dante Rosario is the leading candidate to be the team's No. 2 tight end this year, according to Larry Mayer of ChicagoBears.com. TE Matthew Mulligan, TE Zach Miller and TE Jeron Mastrud will battle for the remaining backup spots during training camp.

Footballguys view: So long as the Black Unicorn Martellus Bennett doesn't get hurt, the backup tight end in Chicago is not fantasy relevant. Even if Bennett gets banged up there are likely better options out there for waiver wire purposes.

  Bears | Matthew Mulligan has good chance to make team    Mon Jun 30, 03:55 PM

Chicago Bears TE Matthew Mulligan appears to have a very good chance to make the final roster because of his ability to block in addition to being a decent receiving threat.

Footballguys view: Mulligan was originally an undrafted free agent for the Dolphins coming out of Maine in 2008. He's bounced around to several teams from then to now, but he might have a landing spot in Chicago this year. According to Pro Football Focus, Mulligan played 339 snaps for the Patriots in 2013. Mulligan could give the team valuable depth, but star tight end Martellus Bennett rarely comes off the field.

  Patriots | Zach Sudfeld does not get much time    Mon Sep 30, 02:30 PM

New England Patriots TE Zach Sudfeld was on the field for only eight of the team's 66 offensive plays Week 4. TEs Michael Hoomanawanui and Matthew Mulligan both received more plays than Sudfeld.

Footballguys view: A darling of the preseason Sudfeld has failed to impress or stay healthy during the regular season. We'll see this TE situation turned on its ear soon with the return of Rob Gronkowski.

Green Bay Packers FB John Kuhn finds himself in a deep position in training camp while making $1.8 million base salary. The decision on whether Kuhn stays or goes might come down to if he coaching staff feels comfortable enough letting TE Matthew Mulligan replace Kuhn as the team's lead blocker in two-back sets and as a protector of QB Aaron Rodgers on passing downs.

He is trying to hold off challengers TEs Jamie Childers, Brody Eldridge, Cory Harkey, Mike McNeill and DeAngelo Peterson for a roster spot. His familiarity with the system of offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, from their days with the New York Jets, is expected to help his cause.

The St. Louis Rams have signed free-agent WR Steve E. Smith (Eagles) to a one-year deal and free-agent TE Matthew Mulligan (Jets) to a two-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Smith gives them another veteran in the WR corps, but isn't exactly an impact player. We think the Rams will take WR Justin Blackmon (Oklahoma State) with the sixth overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
