  Lions | DET expecting Eric Ebron to improve    Thu Mar 26, 11:31 AM

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has been impressive with his offseason work, and the team is expecting him to take a significant step in his play next season, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Footballguys view: Ebron was a guy who looked like he could have a huge role coming out of college, but he was lost in the shuffle behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. He also needs to haul in more of his targets, having caught only 25 of 47 chances. How large his role will be is hard to say with the players in front of him though, and if you draft him you have to understand Ebron's value could be limited to catching a smaller amount of targets than you'd like to see your tight end get.

  Chiefs | KC wants a bigger Travis Kelce    Wed Mar 25, 05:47 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce played at roughly 250 pounds in 2014, but head coach Andy Reid wants Kelce to report bigger in 2015, and Reid thinks Kelce can pack on an extra 15 pounds without losing any of his speed or quickness. Kelce led the team in catches (67) and receiving yards (862) last season.

Footballguys view: Kelce has a skill set similar to that of Rob Gronkowski (Patriots) because of his size and speed. Adding more size would help him stay durable, and it would make him tougher to bring down after the catch.

  Cardinals | Sign Ifeanyi Momah    Wed Mar 25, 03:05 PM

Free-agent TE Ifeanyi Momah (Lions) signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals Wednesday, March 25. Financial terms were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: This is the second player the Cardinals have signed from the veteran combine. Momah will likely contribute on special teams if he makes the final roster.

  Jets | Kellen Davis signed    Wed Mar 25, 12:06 PM

Free-agent TE Kellen Davis (Lions) signed a one-year deal with the New York Jets Wednesday, March 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Nothing to see here people. Davis will work as a blocking tight end behind Jace Amaro in 2015.

  Saints | Josh Hill expected to have bigger role    Wed Mar 25, 10:52 AM

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill is expected to have a bigger role in the offense in 2015. Head coach Sean Payton has mentioned him quite a bit since they traded TE Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Dynasty owners should be over the moon with Hill on their roster. In his final year of college at Idaho State, Hill led the nation in receptions for a tight end (72). He's flashed a bit for the Saints over the last couple of years, and now he'll likely have a large role for the offense.

  Jets | Kellen Davis visits    Tue Mar 24, 04:41 PM

Free-agent TE Kellen Davis (Lions) visited with the New York Jets.

  Dolphins | Jimmy Graham almost went to Miami    Tue Mar 24, 03:02 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham was almost a Miami Dolphin as the Dolphins finished second to the Seahawks in an attempt to trade for the tight end.

Footballguys view: Graham will be in the running for a Super Bowl ring with the Seahawks. He wouldn't be in the running with the Dolphins. Instead of Graham, the Dolphins were able to snare Jordan Cameron in free agency.

  Browns | Cleveland talks with Rob Housler    Mon Mar 23, 03:39 PM

Free-agent TE Rob Housler (Cardinals) has had talks with the Cleveland Browns, but no deal is imminent and no visit has been scheduled, according to a source. Housler is believed to be interested in joining the Browns.

Footballguys view: The Browns lost Jordan Cameron (Dolphins) in free agency, and they need help at the position. Housler is athletic and has decent upside, but he's never played up to his potential as a pro.

  Chiefs | Travis Kelce studying Gonzo    Fri Mar 20, 02:09 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce has been studying former NFL TE Tony Gonzalez's game tape to creatively find ways to improve Kelce's game, focusing on the fundamentals in relation to instinctual play.

Footballguys view: Kelce has the natural talent and upside to be a top-3 tight end. The Chiefs have worked to make their passing game better this offseason, and we'll see if it pays off in 2015.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater working with teammates    Fri Mar 20, 01:23 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is working out in California with Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph, RB Jerick McKinnon, WR Charles Johnson and TE Brandon Bostick. McKinnon and Rudolph are rooming together at Rudolph's Newport Beach, Calif., home and are taking a no-nonsense approach to their training. Rudolph organized the group event.

Footballguys view: It's no mystery, we love Bridgewater. He's smart, accurate and known as a football junkie. Why he wasn't a top-5 pick last year is completely baffling. Moving on from that, his upside is that of a top-12 fantasy QB. We'll see if he can make a big jump in year two.

  Bears | Dante Rosario re-signed    Thu Mar 19, 06:15 PM

The Chicago Bears re-signed TE Dante Rosario to a one-year deal Thursday, March 19. The financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Nothing to see here people. Rosario will continue to work as a reserve tight end behind Martellus Bennett. For the third time in his career (Bears, Broncos) Rosario will be reunited with John Fox.

  Falcons | Tony Moeaki signed    Thu Mar 19, 03:22 PM

Free-agent TE Tony Moeaki (Seahawks) signed with the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, March 19. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Moeaki has had some moments but has largely been unimpressive in part because the last two seasons were injury-riddled. He has potential, but he cannot stay on the field (he had this problem in college too). Can he stay healthy? If he can he might be a very productive fantasy TE2 at least. But injuries make him a shaky TE3 at best. He'll split time with Jacob Tamme in 2015.

  Dolphins | Jordan Cameron the go-to TE    Thu Mar 19, 01:15 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron will be the team's go-to tight end now that they didn't bring back TE Charles Clay, who signed an offer sheet with the Buffalo Bills. Cameron made the Pro Bowl in 2013 and has more athleticism than Clay, but Cameron has also dealt with multiple concussions.

Footballguys view: Cameron is tremendously talented, but at this point seems prone to concussions. That's the big gamble both for the Dolphins and fantasy owners. If he goes down, they just have guys like Dion Sims to step up. If he stays healthy though, this is a tight end heavy offense and he could put up a lot of points. That's a big 'if' but one worth exploring.

  Dolphins | Miami will not match Charles Clay offer    Thu Mar 19, 11:20 AM

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay's five-year, $38 million offer sheet he signed with the Buffalo Bills will not be matched by the Dolphins, according to a source. Clay will now become a member of the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Once Jordan Cameron was in the house, that house had writing on the wall for Charles Clay. Clay is a fine tight end and might have been helpful with Cameron having suffered multiple concussions. If that rears its ugly head again this season, the Dolphins have to hope Dion Sims, Jake Stoneburner or another depth tight end can step up. We like Sims to emerge if Cameron is down.

  Falcons | Jacob Tamme signs with Atlanta    Thu Mar 19, 10:57 AM

Free-agent TE Jacob Tamme (Broncos) signed an undisclosed deal with the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, March 19.

Footballguys view: Tamme isn't a long-term answer at the position, but he'll certainly help. Buried behind Julius Thomas in Denver, Tamme might have more left in the tank than some think. The Falcons have been looking for a good tight end since Tony Gonzalez retired, and now they have one. Tamme isn't going to set the world on fire, but he could be a solid TE2 for fantasy owners.

  NFL | Jermaine Gresham has herniated disc    Wed Mar 18, 07:49 PM

Free-agent TE Jermaine Gresham (back) has been diagnosed with a herniated disc in his back, according to a source. He will undergo surgery Thursday, March 19.

Footballguys view: And this is why Gresham is still unsigned. His recovery time should have him back on the field around training camp. We'd be shocked if any team signed him before that time.

  Bills | Buffalo expected to land Charles Clay    Wed Mar 18, 02:49 PM

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay is expected to land with the Buffalo Bills after signing a five-year, $38 million offer sheet with Buffalo Tuesday, March 17, according to a source. The Dolphins have five days to match the offer sheet, but they aren't expected to. Clay is set to make $24.5 million in the first two years of the deal. The total deal is 'only for $38 million for five years. Miami's last offer to Clay was for four years and $27 million, including less than $14 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: The Bills have made a big run at Clay, and they're likely to land him. He's a talented move tight end with the versatility to line up all over the field. Buffalo's offense will be centered around RB LeSean McCoy, but it's good to have quality weapons like Clay around QB Matt Cassel.

  Bills | Charles Clay signs offer sheet from Bills    Tue Mar 17, 07:27 PM

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay signed an offer sheet from the Buffalo Bills Tuesday, March 17. The Dolphins have five days to match the offer.

Footballguys view: We think the Dolphins will let him go. If they decline to match the Bills' offer sheet, they will receive no compensation for losing Clay as he was tagged as a transitional player.

  NFL | Jermaine Gresham could undergo surgery    Tue Mar 17, 03:42 PM

Former Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (back) may have surgery Thursday, March 19, to repair a back injury.

Footballguys view: Gresham will meet with a doctor Wednesday, March 18. He will be ready for the start of training camp. We'll see if somebody takes a chance on Gresham even though he's got this back injury. Gresham may have to wait until he's healed to get a new team.

  Bills | Buffalo has good shot at Charles Clay    Mon Mar 16, 06:06 PM

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay visited with the Buffalo Bills late last week, and the Bills have a '90%' chance of landing him, according to a source close to the situation. The Bills plan to follow through with their plan to sign him to an offer sheet. Head coach Rex Ryan has been the driving force in the pursuit of Clay. Buffalo continues to study their salary cap numbers and those of the Dolphins.

Footballguys view: The Bills have been hot and heavy after Clay even though the Dolphins placed a transition tag on him at the start of free agency. That has not dismayed them, and they are the favorite to land the talented (and versatile) move tight end.

  Dolphins | Dolphins halt talks with Charles Clay     Sun Mar 15, 07:30 PM

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay is no longer in contract talks with the team, and the Dolphins are waiting on an offer sheet from the Buffalo Bills.

  Dolphins | Jordan Cameron unfazed by concussions    Sun Mar 15, 09:40 AM

Miami Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron said he does not believe the three concussions he suffered over the past three seasons will affect him moving forward. 'I've seen a lot of specialists and talked to a lot of people and it's cleared. My baseline is the same as it was six years ago. There's no cause for concern on my end for this, and the Dolphins felt the same,' Cameron said.

Footballguys view: We're hopeful that concussions don't slow him down further. Cameron has never played a full 16-game season in the NFL, but he has the upside to be a top-3 fantasy tight end. It will be interesting to see how the targets are split up in Miami's new-look passing game.

  Bills | Bills expected to land Charles Clay?    Sat Mar 14, 09:45 PM

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay is not expected to return to the team, and the Dolphins expect him to sign with the Buffalo Bills, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Footballguys view: The Bills have made it very clear they want Clay on the team. If signed away, the Dolphins get no compensation as Clay was a transition-tagged player. Clay is a versatile player who can attack the seam. In Buffalo's run-heavy system, Clay would be a valuable asset for the passing game.

Miami Dolphins transition free-agent TE Charles Clay will not receive an offer from the Buffalo Bills Friday, March 13, but the Bills will make an offer in the near future, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Bills are hot and heavy after Clay--and for good reason. He's a versatile player who can attack defenses down the seam and after the catch as a receiver. With the Dolphins signing Jordan Cameron on Thursday, we could see them let Clay go--without compensation.

  Raiders | Jermaine Gresham not option for OAK now    Fri Mar 13, 02:47 PM

Free-agent TE Jermaine Gresham (Bengals) had contract talks with the Oakland Raiders, but those talks appear to be dead at this point, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Raiders were involved in minor discussions with Julius Thomas (Jaguars), but that didn't heat up. Gresham was thought to be their primary target at tight end, but now it looks like the process has cooled off. We can't imagine teams lined up around the block for Gresham, so perhaps the two sides will be able to work something out.

  Dolphins | Dolphins sign Jordan Cameron    Thu Mar 12, 09:22 PM

Free-agent TE Jordan Cameron (Browns) has signed with the Miami Dolphins, the team announced Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: The Browns did not get their man! Contrary to earlier reports that had him staying in Cleveland, Cameron is taking his talents to South Beach. We'll see if this move signals the team is going to let Charles Clay go in free agency (likely to the Bills). Cameron is a seam-ripper when healthy, and he can be a big-play weapon for QB Ryan Tannehill. Staying healthy has been a problem for Cameron, and concussions are a concern. If he's playing, Cameron is a top-10 fantasy tight end.

  Chiefs | Demetrius Harris retained    Wed Mar 11, 07:38 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris had his exclusive-rights tender retained Wednesday, March 11.

Footballguys view: Harris is yet another basketball convert with length and ball skills. He could get some more targets this year with Anthony Fasano no longer a part of the Chiefs, but Travis Kelce is the obvious candidate for a big leap in fantasy production at the tight end position for Kansas City.


  Broncos | Peyton reaches out to Owen Daniels    Wed Mar 11, 07:23 PM

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels, who signed a three-year, $12 million deal with the team Tuesday, March 10, was asked by QB Peyton Manning to attend his Duke passing camp later this month. Daniels brings with him to Denver a reputation as a precise route runner, and he admitted that this offseason will include 'more studying' as head coach Gary Kubiak incorporates new language into Denver's offense.

Footballguys view: That's a big contract for a player that is at the end of his usefulness. Daniels could be a borderline TE1 for fantasy with Julius Thomas gone, but Virgil Green was also signed to a good deal, and both will play a decent-sized role in the Denver pass offense.
