  Panthers | David Njoku visits Carolina    Fri Mar 24, 12:24 AM

Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku visited the Carolina Panthers Thursday, March 23.

Footballguys view: His best pro comparison is Greg Olsen, so it makes sense that Njoku would visit with the Panthers. He's likely a first-round pick, so the Panthers shouldn't be considering him at no.8 overall. However, if he falls into the top of the second round the Panthers should pounce.

  Steelers | Jesse James struggled with consistency    Thu Mar 23, 07:25 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James failed to register consecutive weeks after the first two games of the 2016 season in which he produced 20 or more receiving yards, despite playing in all 16 contests and starting 13 of them.

Footballguys view: James seems like he could be a very good tight end if he can be consistent, which he clearly couldn't last season. We're wary of thinking that's going to change next year but more experience can only help.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville adds Mychal Rivera    Wed Mar 22, 05:08 PM

Free-agent TE Mychal Rivera (Raiders) signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars Wednesday, March 22. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: After trading away Julius Thomas (Dolphins), the Jaguars needed to find help. Rivera is their top pass-catching TE at this point, but you'll have better fantasy options out there.

  Jaguars | Mychal Rivera meets with Jaguars    Wed Mar 22, 04:56 PM

Free-agent TE Mychal Rivera (Raiders) met with the Jacksonville Jaguars Wednesday, March 22, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Rivera didn't do much with the Raiders, but a new start could help jump start his career. The Jaguars are looking for TE help after trading away Julius Thomas (Dolphins) earlier this year.

  Buccaneers | David Njoku meets with Tampa Bay    Wed Mar 22, 02:47 PM

Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku met with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this week.

Footballguys view: The Bucs are putting more weapons around QB Jameis Winston, and that's why they added DeSean Jackson in free agency. Njoku may be the no.2 TE in this draft behind Alabama's O.J. Howard. He's a good receiver with the ability to create mismatches no matter where he lines up.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta takes pay cut    Wed Mar 22, 09:50 AM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta took a $2.5 million pay cut over the next two seasons. He will make $2.5 million in base salary in 2017 along with a $500,000 roster bonus. He was previously scheduled to earn $5.5 million. This gives Baltimore an additional $2.5 million in cap space in 2017 and 2018.

Footballguys view: Pitta takes the pay cut to add some space to the Ravens cap. He came back healthy last year for the first time in what seemed like forever. Pitta is a favorite target of QB Joe Flacco, and he should continue to be a featured part of the passing game even though the Ravens are stacked at the position.

  Jets | New York hosts Mychal Rivera    Mon Mar 20, 05:45 PM

Free-agent TE Mychal Rivera (Raiders) paid a visit to the New York Jets Monday, March 20.

Footballguys view: Rivera didn't do much during his time with the Raiders, but a fresh start could do him some good. In 2014, Rivera was the 17th-best fantasy TE (in standard leagues) with 58 catches, 534 yards and four touchdowns. The Jets could use some help at the position, and Rivera should be a cheap option.

  Steelers | Ladarius Green plans to be at workouts    Fri Mar 17, 06:36 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) said he expects to participate in the offseason workouts and is excited to return.

Footballguys view: Green looked good, but he only lasted six games in his first season with the Steelers last year. He's yet to be cleared medically, but we should know more about the situation when OTAs begin in April.

  Seahawks | Luke Willson returning to Seattle    Fri Mar 17, 10:38 AM

Free-agent TE Luke Willson (Seahawks) re-signed with the Seattle Seahawks on a one-year deal Friday, March 17, worth up to $3 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Willson stays with the Seahawaks and will resume his role as a backup TE behind Jimmy Graham. He's unlikely to catch more than 20 or so passes with a couple of TDs in 2017.

  Raiders | Jared Cook ready to contribute    Thu Mar 16, 10:52 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook said his plan is to 'make plays and catch touchdowns' for his new team.

Footballguys view: The Raiders needed a weapon like Cook. They drafted Clive Walford to be that guy, but he has yet to develop into any sort of weapon. With the outside receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree taking up so much attention, Cook could be the seam-ripper down the middle of the field. Cook has always had amazing potential, but he's rarely played up to that in his pro career.

  Raiders | Jared Cook contract details    Thu Mar 16, 05:57 PM

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook's contract is two years in length and worth $12.2 million, according to a source. The first year of the deal is fully guaranteed.

Footballguys view: So if he underperforms, Cook will move on again. It's a reasonable one-year deal masquerading as two year deal.

  Raiders | Jared Cook to sign with Oakland    Thu Mar 16, 05:31 PM

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Packers) will sign an undisclosed deal with the Oakland Raiders, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Cook's tour of mediocrity continues. Cook once again showed flashes last season, but was far from consistent. He should do so again with Derek Carr throwing him the ball, which means he will be unreliable for fantasy purposes, as per usual.

  Cowboys | Geoff Swaim had surgery    Thu Mar 16, 03:26 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim (foot) underwent foot surgery this week and will likely be out until training camp, according to sources. A screw was inserted into the injured foot to help secure the bones. Swaim was injured earlier this week during informal workouts.

  Jaguars | Jags meet with Chris Gragg    Wed Mar 15, 06:18 PM

Free-agent TE Chris Gragg (Bills) met with the Jacksonville Jaguars Wednesday, March 15.

Footballguys view: He missed all of 2016 with an ACL injury, so the Jaguars could get him on the cheap. A seventh-round pick of Doug Marrone when he was coaching the Bills, the two could reunite with the Jaguars. The team needs some depth at the TE position since trading away Julius Thomas (Dolphins).

  Jets | Austin Seferian-Jenkins suspended two games    Wed Mar 15, 04:48 PM

New York Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins has been suspended for two games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Footballguys view: He's got the physical gifts, but Seferian-Jenkins has never played up to his potential as a pro. A DUI last year leads to this suspension. ASJ will miss the first two weeks, but he can participate in all of OTAs, minicamp and training camp for the Jets.

  Raiders | Jared Cook will visit Oakland    Tue Mar 14, 06:58 PM

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Packers) is expected to meet with the Oakland Raiders if he does not sign with the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: The Raiders could use a quality tight end after Clive Walford hasn't yet developed as a pro. Cook is big, fast and physical when healthy and motivated. The Raiders didn't get Martellus Bennett (Packers), but they could get the guy he replaced with Cook.

  Vikings | Jared Cook to visit Vikings    Tue Mar 14, 04:22 PM

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Packers) will meet with the Minnesota Vikings following his visit with the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. That is unless Cook signs a deal in Seattle.

Footballguys view: Just like in Seattle, Cook would be a backup if he signed with the Vikings. Kyle Rudolph is their lead tight end, but Cook could get on the field when they go with 2-TE sets.

  Dolphins | Julius Thomas finally healthy    Tue Mar 14, 12:47 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas is finally healthy after battling back, finger and ankle injuries. 'I don't really have any handicaps, anything that will hold me back,' Thomas said. '... I feel really good. I know that I'll be able to play at the highest level I've played in my career.'

Footballguys view: A healthy Thomas can be an effective Thomas...especially now that he's reunited with Adam Gase. Thomas put up the best numbers of his career working under Gase in the Broncos offense. The veteran tight end should be a big red-zone target for the Dolphins in 2017.

  Seahawks | Seattle to meet with Jared Cook    Mon Mar 13, 08:13 PM

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Packers) is scheduled to meet with the Seattle Seahawks, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Cook finds himself on the lookout for a new team after things fell apart with the Packers. The Seahawks could add him, and Cook would be used in 2-TE sets with Jimmy Graham.

  Cardinals | Jermaine Gresham contract details    Mon Mar 13, 05:25 PM

Arizona Cardinals TE Jermaine Gresham's four-year deal comes with a $13 million guaranteed at signing, including a $7 million bonus. The deal also consists of a $2 million salary in 2017 and $4 million of his $5.25 million 2018 salary. The $1.25 million left of Gresham's 2018 salary and $2.25 million of his $6.25 million 2019 salary become fully guaranteed if he is still on the active roster by the third day of the 2018 league year.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz restructures    Mon Mar 13, 09:28 AM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz restructured his contract Monday, March 13, according to a source. The move turned $3.225 million into a signing bonus and created $2.58 million in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: The move doesn't cost Ertz anything, but it frees up some space for the Eagles to sign Nick Foles. Ertz should still be a large part of what the Eagles do through the air, but with Alshon Jeffery added in free agency we could see it impact the number of targets Ertz gets.

  Packers | Green Bay signing Lance Kendricks    Sat Mar 11, 04:45 PM

Free-agent TE Lance Kendricks (Rams) agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers Saturday, March 11. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ted Thompson going a little nuts in free agency here. He's already added Martellus Bennett to the roster, and now he doubles up on the tight end position with Kendricks. The Packers will now be able to run more effective two-TE sets in 2017.

  Ravens | Benjamin Watson's status uncertain    Sat Mar 11, 02:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson may be on the roster bubble after the team agreed to a restructured contract with TE Dennis Pitta.

Footballguys view: Pitta's return to full strength and restructured deal gives the Ravens a surplus of talent at the position. The Ravens would save $3 million in salary cap space if Watson is released.

Free-agent TE Martellus Bennett (Patriots) has agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers Friday, March 10, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Packers make a splash here with another quality weapon for QB Aaron Rodgers. Bennett was banged up last year but still put up solid numbers. He's expected to have offseason ankle surgery, and a fully healthy Bennett could be quite dangerous in the Packers passing attack.

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Packers) has had contract talks with the Green Bay Packers broken off Friday, March 10, according to a source. He'll visit other teams.

Footballguys view: The Packers aren't that active in free agency, but most expected them to keep Cook. He worked well with the Packers last year and showed good chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers. In 10 games, Cook had 30 catches for 377 yards and one touchdown.

  Rams | Lance Kendricks released    Fri Mar 10, 08:19 AM

Los Angeles Rams TE Lance Kendricks was released Friday, March 10.

Footballguys view: Kendricks hits the open market for the first time in his pro career. He's not the playmaker Josh McDaniels (former Rams OC) envisioned, but some team might be willing to take a chance to see if he can flourish with a new start. Second-year tight end Tyler Higbee gets a big fantasy bump.

  Bears | Chicago lands Dion Sims    Thu Mar 9, 09:09 PM

Free-agent TE Dion Sims (Dolphins) has agreed to a three-year, $18-million deal with the Chicago Bears, according to sources. The deal includes $10 million in guarantees.

Footballguys view: Sims wasn't great but he was about the best thing they had at the position. The upside is that Miami can grab a good tight end in the draft and guys like Martellus Bennett are still available in free agency. We don't have high hopes for Sims with the Bears either given the quarterback situation.
