  Eagles | Coach high on Zach Ertz    Wed Aug 27, 01:00 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz is expected to be more involved in the passing game this season and has shown the confidence to be a solid pass catcher, according to tight ends coach Ted Williams. 'He's one of the best route-runners I've ever seen. He takes a lot of pride in that. He has a lot of confidence. He's hard to defeat, because he doesn't take defeat very well. He feels, 'You can't cover me,'' Williams said. Williams said the team can throw when they are in a two-tight end set and that Ertz can line up at tight end, in the slot or as an outside receiver.

Footballguys view: Ertz is looking like one of the best bets in the "upside TE" group you can get in the eighth round or later. He might have some low points when the game plan exploits other weaknesses, but a bet on Ertz is a bet on Chip Kelly to use his talent to its fullest extent, and those were winning bets last year.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski likely to sit    Wed Aug 27, 12:07 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) continues to make progress in his rehab but likely will sit out the final preseason game. Gronkowski is looking to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski may well be a game-time decision for week 1, and perhaps even miss multiple games, but he took only three games to get back to old form last year after a more tumultuous offseason.

  Dolphins | Gator Hoskins proving himself    Wed Aug 27, 01:50 AM

Miami Dolphins TE Gator Hoskins has a good chance to make the 53-man roster either as the No. 4 tight end, or No. 3 if the team does not find an upgrade on waivers. If he doesn't stick, he is a candidate to be retained on the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Hoskins was touchdown machine at Marshall, but he was unheralded as a draft prospect and fell out of the draft. He would be the #3 behind Charles Clay and Dion Sims if he sticks.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron back    Wed Aug 27, 01:45 AM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (personal) was 'dealing with an issue' Monday, Aug. 25, and his absence from practice was not related to the sprained AC joint he suffered in his shoulder during an intrasquad scrimmage.

  Patriots | No setbacks for Rob Gronkowski    Tue Aug 26, 06:30 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) has not encountered any setbacks from the end of last week, and the acquisition of TE Timothy Wright is not a sign that the team is concerned about Gronkowski's health. The Patriots have wanted to remain cautious with Gronkowski's workload this preseason. Wright is a 'move' tight end, similar to the role free-agent TE Aaron Hernandez used to play with the team.

Footballguys view: Don't read anything into this move re: Gronkowski, and don't assume that the Pats will go back to two TE as their base set. Wright fills a gap in the Patriots personnel that they have been trying to plug, including flirting with Dustin Keller earlier this offseason, but like a lot of their passcatchers, he will be a role model.

  Dolphins | Three placed on IR    Tue Aug 26, 04:36 PM

The Miami Dolphins placed DT A.J. Francis (knee), RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) and TE Arthur Lynch (back) on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Gilleslee going on IR means that Daniel Thomas still has a pulse, but undrafted rookies Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa will also have something to say about that.

  Buccaneers | Acquire Logan Mankins    Tue Aug 26, 01:44 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to the parameters of a trade to acquire OG Logan Mankins (Patriots) in exchange for TE Timothy Wright and an undisclosed draft pick Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: This should be a sigh of relief for anyone investing in any part of the Bucs offense. Their guard play was quite possibly the worst in the league, and Mankins is a massive upgrade. Doug Martin and Vincent Jackson's values are a little safer than they were this morning.

  Patriots | Acquire Tim Wright    Tue Aug 26, 01:43 PM

The New England Patriots acquired TE Timothy Wright and an undisclosed draft pick from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for OG Logan Mankins.

Footballguys view: Wright is probably going to be a role player who doesn't approach Aaron Hernandez's level of involvement in the Patriots offense. This trade was mainly about the Pats recouping value for a player they saw as overpriced and the Bucs sorely needing help at guard. The pick was reportedly a fourth-rounder, which is solid value if the Patriots offensive line depth can mask the loss of a declining but still quality player.

OT Randall Harris and WR Jonathan Krause were waived with a waived/injured designation, and RB Edwin Baker was waived with an injury settlement designation.

Footballguys view: Baker had some decent moments last season, but Dion Lewis beat him out for the #3 running back job. His name could surface again in the future.

  Giants | May use committee at TE    Mon Aug 25, 05:21 PM

The New York Giants may use a committee approach with their tight ends this season based on different situations, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. 'I really think that there'll be a group of guys that'll play that'll help us in different situations and will be matched up according to the circumstance,' Coughlin said. 'I think that's where it's going to go. I think there's a lot of roles for that spot.' TEs Larry Donnell, Adrien Robinson, Daniel Fells and Kellen Davis are expected to make the final roster, but no starter has been named.

Footballguys view: The team lacks talent at the tight end position. Fantasy owners were already avoiding this situation...a TEBC means they'll stay away.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (undisclosed) was excused from practice Monday, Aug. 25, as he is 'just dealing with an issue,' according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Footballguys view: Well that's cryptic. Pettine did not say if Cameron's absence was due to the sprained shoulder he suffered earlier this month. It's probably nothing, but just keep an eye out for this situation.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed injured    Mon Aug 25, 03:05 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (thumb) is dealing with a sprained thumb but should be ready to play Week 1, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Reed has a history of concussions, so we'll take a minor thumb injury. The Washington offense has looked lackluster this preseason, so we're cool on Reed as a fantasy tight end--despite his talent.

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Monday, Aug. 25, because of an undisclosed reason.
