  Jets | Zach Sudfeld does not make team    Sat Sep 3, 11:29 AM

New York Jets TE Zach Sudfeld was released Saturday, Sept. 3, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld-mania used to be a thing -- but that was some time ago and when he was with the Patriots. However, he was having a good preseason and this move is a bit of a surprise.

  Jets | Jace Amaro may not make team    Thu Sep 1, 04:56 PM

New York Jets TE Jace Amaro (groin) is on the final roster bubble, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post. Costello believes TE Kellen Davis is the only player at the position who has secured a roster spot. TEs Zach Sudfeld and Brandon Bostick are also in contention.

Footballguys view: We've said this for a while. There was brief hope this summer when he came into OTAs and had worked with Brandon Marshall to improve his catching. Since then, though, he has struggled to hold onto the ball. The front office which drafted him is gone, so this GM and coach have no reason to keep him around. We don't see the Jets as a team which produces fantasy tight ends worth rostering anyway, so no matter who is there on the roster, they shouldn't be on yours.

  Jets | Zach Sudfeld re-signs    Thu Mar 10, 01:34 PM

The New York Jets re-signed TE Zach Sudfeld to a one-year deal Thursday, March 10. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld won't be much of a threat to Jace Amaro even though Amaro has yet to be the least bit impressive. Sudfeld is coming off a torn ACL which cost him all of 2015 so we're not even sure if he makes the team.

  Jets | Zach Sudfeld placed on IR    Wed Jun 17, 05:14 PM

New York Jets TE Zach Sudfeld (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, June 17, after being waived/injured Monday, June 15.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld's brief career in the NFL is likely over at this time. He wasn't a lock to make the final roster even if he was healthy, and a comeback may prove difficult.

  Jets | Zach Sudfeld waived with settlement    Tue Jun 16, 12:21 AM

New York Jets TE Zach Sudfeld (knee) was waived/injured Monday, June 15, after suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during organized team activities (OTAs). The team signed TE Steve Maneri to take his roster spot.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld's career in the NFL is likely over. Maneri is merely a blocking tight end with no fantasy value.

  Jets | Make two roster moves    Mon Jun 15, 05:49 PM

New York Jets TE Zach Sudfeld (knee) was waived/injured Monday, June 15, with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Free-agent TE Steve Maneri (Patriots) was subsequently signed to an undisclosed deal.

Footballguys view: Remember when Sudfeld was a sleeper to some? Yeah, those days are over. The third-year UDFA's career is likely over. Maneri is a blocking tight end who will struggle to make the final roster.

  Jets | Zach Sudfeld injured    Thu Jun 11, 06:41 PM

New York Jets TE Zach Sudfeld (knee) injured his knee during minicamp Wednesday, June 10, on a collision with SS Calvin Pryor. Head coach Todd Bowles said he fears the injury may not be minor. Sudfeld underwent an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld has been a disappointment since he burst onto the scene ever-so-briefly with the Patriots. Buried behind Jace Amaro and Jeff Cumberland, he's not likely to get many reps. If he can get healthy again, he still won't amount to much on this Jets team and can be ignored in fantasy.

  Jets | Zach Sudfeld dealing with injury    Thu Jun 11, 12:52 PM

New York Jets TE Zach Sudfeld (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, June 11, because of a knee injury. Head coach Todd Bowles said Sudfeld may be dealing with a serious injury and that he will undergo tests on the knee.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld was a hot commodity as an undrafted rookie with the Patriots in 2013, but he failed to pay off for anyone who grabbed him. He's behind Jace Amaro and Jeff Cumberland and mired in an offense with players like Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker as well. Sudfeld isn't helping himself by being hurt and his role in the offense, limited already, could dwindle even further.

  Jets | Three TEs to compete for one or two spots    Thu Jul 3, 05:44 PM

New York Jets TEs Zach Sudfeld, Chris Pantale and Colin Anderson will compete for one or two roster spots during training camp. It is not known if the team will keep three or four tight ends on their final roster.

Footballguys view: Sudfeld was a hot deal with the Patriots in training camp, but couldn't stick. He's got soft hands, decent speed and great size but isn't much of a blocker. Pantale was on the practice squad most of last season and didn't impress when he was moved up. Anderson is on a futures/reserve contract and is a pretty average small-school product. We think Sudfeld is the guy here, though he won't have any fantasy value unless there are injuries.

  Jets | Jace Amaro struggling    Wed Jun 25, 12:16 PM

New York Jets rookie TE Jace Amaro is struggling in his initial workouts. The no-huddle, spread system at Texas Tech is significantly different from the Jets' deeper pro-style playbook. He looked lost in three-wide packages and needs to polish his routes, in-line position, footwork and releases.

Footballguys view: Amaro is making a transition, but the team should still find a specialized use for him on passing downs with less on his plate even if he has trouble adjusting to the pro game in his rookie year. He has great promise in dynasty leagues, but don't look for a big impact from Amaro in fantasy leagues this year.
