  Giants | Jerell Adams may block more     Sat Apr 30, 04:55 PM

New York Giants TE Jerell Adams is viewed as a better blocker than pass-catcher, according to general manager Jerry Reese.

Footballguys view: The Giants will try to work with him on that and hope he can contribute as more of a move tight end in a year or two.

  Giants | Jerell Adams heading to the Big Apple     Sat Apr 30, 04:03 PM

Former South Carolina TE Jerell Adams was selected by the New York Giants with the 184th pick in the sixth round of the NFL draft Saturday, April 30.

Footballguys view: He can run block but he can also stretch the field. Adams' hands are a big shaky but if he can improve that, he could be a starter down the road.

  Seahawks | Nick Vannett added to Seattle mix    Fri Apr 29, 11:11 PM

The Seattle Seahawks selected Ohio State University TE Nick Vannett with the No. 94 overall pick in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Vannett's got a great combination of size and athleticismand can work as a combination tight end who can stay on the field in any formation. He needs to be more aggressive though, and will be stuck behind Jimmy Graham.

  Falcons | Atlanta takes TE in Austin Hooper    Fri Apr 29, 10:33 PM

The Atlanta Falcons selected Stanford TE Austin Hooper with the No. 81 overall pick in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: A solid route-runner, who is a bit of a move-tight end only, but could develop into a blocker as well. We'll see if they Falcons try to integrate him into the offense like they used to with Tony Gonzalez, though Hooper isn't in the same class.

  Chargers | Hunter Henry headed for big workload?    Fri Apr 29, 09:44 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Hunter Henry's blocking ability will allow him to contribute right away before replacing TE Antonio Gates as the primary pass-catching tight end down the road, and beat writer Michael Gehlken believes Henry could see more snaps this season than Gates.

Footballguys view: He can catch the ball but he's a great run blocker, which will put him on the field a lot with Philip Rivers.

The San Diego Chargers selected Arkansas TE Hunter Henry with the No. 35 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: Another in a long line of Antonio gates replacements and in a weak tight end class. We're not expecting immediate impact here.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham making progress    Tue Apr 26, 10:16 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) continues to recover from a torn patellar tendon suffered a game in late November. He has been taking part in the initial stages of the team's official offseason program with two weeks of strength and condition and physical rehabilitation. Head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday, April 26, that everything is going well. The general team feeling is that Graham will be ready for the season.

Footballguys view: No one has come back to their previous form after a patellar tendon injury, and Graham wasn't exactly a fantasy stud for Seattle before the injury. He's a low TE1 in early drafts, and could fall from that spot if the beginning of the season is in doubt for him.

  Giants | Larry Donnell had serious injury    Tue Apr 26, 05:07 PM

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell (neck) said he had a broken bone in his neck last year to a certain extent, adding that the injury was worse than he thought.

Footballguys view: Donnell was a top-12 fantasy TE (11th) in 2014, but last year he only played in eight games and the numbers fell off. Any neck injury is a serious injury, but it sounds like Donnell is healthy and ready to compete at a high level. We'll be interested to see if he can bounce back in 2016.

  Broncos | Denver signing Garrett Graham    Mon Apr 25, 04:54 PM

Free-agent TE Garrett Graham (Texans) is signing a one-year deal with the Denver Broncos Monday, April 25, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: This makes a ton of sense. The Broncos need TE help after the release of Owen Daniels, and Graham began his career playing for Kubiak with the Texans. He'll compete with Jeff Heuerman and Virgil Green to be the Broncos lead TE in 2016.

  Lions | Eric Ebron expects bigger role    Sun Apr 24, 05:17 PM

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said he hopes to become a safety net for QB Matthew Stafford in 2016 since WR Calvin Johnson decided to retire.

Footballguys view: Ebron is wise to predict a larger role on we'll see if he can actually do something with a potential increased opportunity. He's a talented tight end with the speed to take the top off the defense, but Ebron will likely be remembered as a player picked before Odell Beckham Jr. (Giants) than for anything he ever does in his pro career.

  Bengals | Tyler Kroft to be used more?    Sat Apr 23, 03:39 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Kroft could be more of a receiving threat in 2016 as the Bengals try to break in WR Brandon LaFell and possible rookie wide receivers, in the opinion of Geoff Hobson of

Footballguys view: The Bengals are hurting after losing both Marvin Jones (Lions) and Mohamded Sanu (Falcons) in free agency. We think star TE Tyler Eifert certainly gets a larger role, but we're not so sure about Kroft. He's big and athletic, playing like a super-sized WR with ferocity as a blocker. Kroft needs to prove that he can consistently catch with his hands and be more effective on routes over the middle if he wants a larger role as a receiver in 2016.

  Jaguars | Bigger role for Julius Thomas?    Sat Apr 23, 12:19 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is the best pass-catching tight end in the NFL, according to WR Allen Robinson, and QB Blake Bortles expects to have better chemistry with Thomas in their second year together.

Footballguys view: Thomas just needs to stay healthy. There's no question that he's got a nose for the end zone and can be a dangerous factor as a receiver. However, Thomas has never played a full 16-game season in his pro career. It would greatly benefit the Jaguars if he can finally stay healthy all year this year.

  Dolphins | Jordan Cameron to be used smarter    Fri Apr 22, 05:20 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron struggled in 2015 because the previous coaching staff did not use him to his strengths, according to a team official. The official believes things will change under the new coaching staff.

Footballguys view: Do not sleep on Cameron this year. We believe in new head coach Adam Gase, and he's going to bring a much more exciting offense to the Dolphins in 2016. A big part of what he'll do will be with Cameron. It was Gase who got the best out of Julius Thomas (a similar player to Cameron) back when the two were with the Denver Broncos.

  Patriots | Gronk not concerned about his contract    Fri Apr 22, 01:26 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski said he's not concerned about his contract. 'No, that's not on my mind at all. I started offseason workouts yesterday. It just feels great to be back with the team working out, getting back in football shape and getting prepared for the season.'

Footballguys view: Gronkowski doesn't worry about anything. He's got a carefree attitude, so it's no surprise he wouldn't be focused on his contract at this time.

  Texans | Sean Price to visit Texans    Fri Apr 22, 02:14 AM

South Florida TE Sean Price will work out for the Houston Texans Friday, April 22.

Footballguys view: Price holds the school record for tight ends with 75 career receptions for 897 yards. He's only 6'2" 245 pounds and not overly fast or quick. He should go late in the draft and might only be used as an H-back at the pro level.

  Browns | Waive Chase Ford    Wed Apr 20, 05:51 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Chase Ford was waived Wednesday, April 20, according to a source.

Footballguys view: That escalated quickly. They do have a lot of draft picks to make room for after Wednesday's trade with the Philadelphia Eagles, so this might just be clearing space. Ford could land any number of places, but his impact in fantasy will be minimal regardless of location.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta's restructured deal has injury waivers for 2016, 2017 and 2018, with base salaries of $1 million, $5.5 million and $5.5 million. His salary cap numbers are $3.2 million, $7.7 million and $7.7 million.

Footballguys view: Pitta may never be able to be the player he used to be, but we love his resilience. The Ravens have a ton of talent at the TE position, especially after adding Ben Watson to the mix this offseason.

  Bengals | Cincinnati wants to keep Tyler Eifert     Thu Apr 14, 11:03 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert has exceeded all expectations, according to head coach Marvin Lewis, and beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. believes the Bengals will try to sign Eifert to a long-term extension in September of 2017.

Footballguys view: Eifert can be the best tight end in the league so long as he stays healthy. With the departure of Marvin Jones (Lions) and Mohamed Sanu (Falcons), Eifert is going to be an even larger part of the offense.

Denver Broncos TE Nick Kasa was waived Thursday, April 14, with a non-football injury designation and C Matt Paradis signed his exclusive rights tender.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls, Jimmy Graham on track    Thu Apr 14, 01:17 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) and TE Jimmy Graham (knee) are expected to be ready for Week 1, according to general manager John Schneider. Schneider added that both players are at similar stages in their rehabs, and he couldn't identify one as being further along. He said he didn't know if either would play in the preseason. 'Right now, their rehab's going well,' Schneider said. 'We're trying to get them ready for the season. We're not trying to get them ready to play Minnesota in the preseason.'

Footballguys view: Rawls can be a fantasy factor if he stay healthy for the full season. Graham needs to get healthy and prove that he can be a more integral part of the offense. The Seahawks offense looked better after Graham was hurt in 2015.

  Cowboys | James Hanna could have bigger role    Wed Apr 13, 10:16 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE James Hanna elected to return the team after entering unrestricted free agency in March. He hasn't been a major factor in the passing game in the past, but he is viewed as a solid blocker who is an underrated asset in the running game. With TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' in December, and a question mark for the season, Hanna could have a big role.

Dallas Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim appeared in four games as a rookie with just one pass reception, playing a total of 23 snaps.

  Browns | Claim Chase Ford    Wed Apr 13, 04:57 PM

Free-agent TE Chase Ford (Ravens) was claimed by the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, April 13.

Footballguys view: The Browns could use Ford as a reserve TE in 2016...if he makes the team. He's a big-bodied blocker who can make a few tough catches, but Ford is no fantasy factor.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert optioned    Wed Apr 13, 03:09 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert's option was exercised Wednesday, April 13. He will remain with the Bengals through 2017.

Footballguys view: A good move for the Bengals here. He had a breakout season in 2016, and Eifert was a key piece of the passing game with 13 TDs on the season. With free agent WRs Marvin Jones (Lions) and Mohamed Sanu (Falcons) moving on, Eifert may be more important to the offense than ever before.

  Ravens | Chase Ford waived    Tue Apr 12, 04:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Chase Ford was waived Tuesday, April 12.

Footballguys view: Ford has bounced around the league a bit as he's a replacement-level TE. He's big and a good blocker, but he's not as polished as a receiver. Some team may end up taking a chance on him, but Ford is not much of a fantasy asset.

Footballguys view: Pitta is resilient, we'll give him that. This hip problem was supposed to end his playing days in the NFL, but Pitta continues to fight for the chance to make it back. He hasn't played a down since 2014.

  Buccaneers | Ryan Griffin has potential    Mon Apr 11, 04:16 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Griffin has a chance to be an ascending player at quarterback, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. Griffin would take over as the No. 2 quarterback in Tampa Bay if QB Mike Glennon is traded.

Footballguys view: Griffin certainly has potential as a pocket passer and reserve behind Jameis Winston. The Bucs are flirting with the idea of trading away Mike Glennon. He could be dealt as the young passer is likely to move on for a chance to start as an unrestricted free agent next year.

  Broncos | Jeff Heuerman working hard    Fri Apr 8, 09:21 PM

Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman (knee) is working hard to return from knee surgery, head coach Gary Kubiak said, and beat writer Jeff Legwold believes Heuerman could earn the No. 1 tight end job during training camp.

Footballguys view: Heuerman is basically a super-sized wide receiver who can line up all over the formation and be put in motion before the snap. He's not much of a blocker--or at least he wasn't in college at Ohio State. The Broncos could use him as their featured TE in 2016. Dynasty owners should be watching him closely and rostering him in TE premium leagues. Heuerman missed all of his rookie season in 2015 after a knee injury knocked him out in rookie minicamp last year.
