  Dolphins | Clive Walford joining Miami    Wed Mar 13, 06:56 PM

Free-agent TE Clive Walford (Jets) signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins Wednesday, March 13, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Walford played his college ball for the University of Miami. He's got talent but his game is inconsistent in multiple stops around the pros. We're not too fired up about his dynasty prospects and have not been for quite some time.

  Jets | Clive Walford will not be tendered    Sat Mar 2, 01:06 PM

New York Jets restricted free-agent TE Clive Walford will not receive a tender offer this offseason, according to a source.

Footballguys view: That makes Walford a free agent an able to sign with any team without compensation coming for the Jets. Walford was inconsistent in college, despite being athletic and capable of creating mismatches. That inconsistency has followed him to the pros with a few teams. The market shouldn't be that hot for the 2015 third-round pick.

  Colts | Indianapolis makes three moves    Fri Dec 7, 02:32 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Daurice Fountain was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster Friday, Dec. 7. TE Clive Walford was waived in a corresponding move. The Colts also signed QB Phillip Walker back to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: This move is probably more about Dontrelle Inman being out than TY Hilton being a game-time decision. Fountain was actually drafted ahead of camp star Deon Cain and was getting praise for his work on the practice squad. He's worth monitoring in deep dynasty leagues.

Free-agent TE Clive Walford (Jets) was signed by the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, Nov. 28, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Walford has bounced around the league during his pro career. He's a move tight end who can create mismatches due to his athleticism but his game is inconsistent as the day is long. Walford will compete for snaps/playing time behind starting tight end Eric Ebron.

New York Jets TE Clive Walford is being shopped around, according to a source.

  Dolphins | MIA wanted Clive Walford    Tue Apr 3, 10:26 AM

New York Jets TE Clive Walford was a target of the Miami Dolphins, whose waiver claim was denied.

Footballguys view: Julius Thomas didn't work out after being signed last offseason, so the Dolphins are clearly still in the market for a tight end. They could take one on the second day of the draft.

  Jets | Clive Walford claimed by Jets    Mon Apr 2, 04:33 PM

Free-agent TE Clive Walford (Raiders) was claimed off waivers by the New York Jets Monday, April 2, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Walford's career has been derailed by an ATV accident, but he's still on his rookie contract and cheap. The Jets don't have an entrenched starting tight end, so it's a no risk move with some upside for them.

  Raiders | Clive Walford taking notes    Sat Aug 12, 11:40 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford has been asking TE Jared Cook for tips on catching and running routes.

Footballguys view: Walford was an interesting prospect when he came out of Miami a few years ago. He's basically disappeared as a pro. Walford is athletic and can go all out to make difficult catches, but he's been too inconsistent to be relied on.

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 14, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Walford was not able to play last week, so we can't pencil him into the lineup this week until inactives are released. Even if he goes, he's not a good play against a Chiefs defense that hasn't allowed more than three catches to any tight end yet this year.

  Raiders | Clive Walford to have big role?    Thu Aug 11, 10:07 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford said he is more comfortable in the offense this year, and offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said Walford is going to be a 'big part' of what the Raiders do on offense.

Footballguys view: Last year was a decent rookie season for Walford and we expect him to build on it this season. He may rank behind Lee Smith right now but that is bound to change sooner than later. While we see him as a TE2/TE3, he has some real upside this season.

  Raiders | Clive Walford listed as backup    Mon Aug 8, 02:14 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford is not listed as the starting tight end on Raiders' initial depth chart. TE Lee Smith is listed ahead of Walford.

Footballguys view: Walford is a favorite dynasty TE for us, but he clearly needs to impress more in camp to win that top spot on the depth chart. Smith is a big TE, but he lacks the athleticism and seam-stretching ability of Walford.

  Raiders | Clive Walford not being restricted    Sun Jul 31, 10:36 AM

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford (knee) has been a full participant in training camp following an offseason all-terrain vehicle accident.

Footballguys view: Walford isn't a TE1 for fantasy yet, but he had some plays showing surprising downfield speed last year, and with a strong wide receiver group, he could face some of the better matchups each week in the middle of the field. He's worth a late pick if you wait at tight end, and he is certainly on our breakout TE candidate list.

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford (knee) is expected to be cleared well before the beginning of training camp. He did not participate in organized team activities Tuesday, May 24.

Footballguys view: All signs point to this whole "lacerated knee" thing as being quite minor. Walford is one of our favorite young TEs in the league. He's a TE2 for fantasy owners this year, but the upside to be a top-12 fantasy TE is there with the athletic Walford.

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford (knee) suffered a knee injury earlier this offseason in an all-terrain vehicle accident, according to sources. He is expected back for training camp, and one source said the injury may not be as bad as originally thought. It's unclear what his injury was, but indications are that he's weeks removed from surgery.

Footballguys view: Ouch. Fantasy owners need to keep an eye on his recovery. Walford is one of our favorite young TEs in the league and could easily become a favorite target for QB Derek Carr.

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford's role is expected to be expanded in 2016.

  Raiders | Clive Walford trending upward    Wed Oct 28, 01:23 AM

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford will continue to see a bigger part of the offense going forward. He had a touchdown in the Week 7 game against the San Diego Chargers.

Footballguys view: This is a pass offense that is trending upwards and Walford appears to have a growing role in it as he has seen his snaps slowly increase over the last few weeks, though not his targets. He showed a lot of athleticism and an ability to get downfield against San Diego during what appears to have been a breakout performance. With Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree drawing coverage away from Walford and a solid running back keeping the linebackers honest, Walford should be able to get free on both short range and downfield plays. His limited targets cap his production potential right now though and we don't recommend him as more than a low-end TE2 against the Jets this weekend.

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford received a season-high 28 offensive snaps in the team's Week 7 game. Head coach Jack Del Rio said Walford will be more involved as the season goes on.

Footballguys view: Walford was our second-favorite tight end in this year's draft class (behind Maxx Williams). He was a standout player at the Senior Bowl earlier this year, and on film in college at Miami Walford was a player who could make difficult catches seem routine. We're excited to see him involved more in the offense going forward.

  Raiders | Oakland high on Clive Walford    Wed Oct 21, 12:43 AM

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford is viewed as a combination of both a catching and a blocking tight end by the coaching staff. The plan is for Walford to stretch the defense down the middle and open things up for the wide receivers. '(Walford is) a good-size guy that is a very capable blocker, who is also a guy who has the athleticism to be a threat as a route runner,' head coach Jack Del Rio said.

Footballguys view: We're high on Walford too. He was our second-favorite rookie tight end in this class (behind Ravens TE Maxx Williams). Walford was a standout at the Senior Bowl earlier this year, and he can make difficult catches seem routine. He disappeared on film at times in college, and needs to play with better consistency if he wants to play up to his potential as a pro.

  Raiders | Clive Walford may be more involved    Sat Oct 17, 09:34 AM

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford is expected to be more involved in the offense as the season goes on and he has a better understanding of the playbook.

Footballguys view: It takes rookie TEs some time to make an impact in the NFL. Walford was our second-favorite rookie TE in this year's draft class (behind Maxx Williams). He was a standout player at the Senior Bowl, and Walford will go all out to make a catch (diving, leaping, can work sideline routes). He disappeared at times on film at Miami, but if he's dialed in Walford can stretch the seam and make big plays.
