  Patriots | Martellus Bennett questionable    Fri Jan 20, 05:49 PM

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Bennett is likely to play against the Steelers, and his role in creating mismatches against the Steelers linebackers could be a difference maker for the Patriots.

  Steelers | Ladarius Green listed as questionable    Fri Jan 20, 05:17 PM

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Green is unlikely to play against the Patriots, but his limited practice on Friday does open up the possibility.

  Steelers | Ladarius Green back at practice    Fri Jan 20, 01:15 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) still remains in the league's concussion protocol, but he was able to practice Friday, Jan. 20, although he did not do so with the first team.

Footballguys view: He is expected to make the trip to New England but not expected to play in the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots.

  Steelers | Ladarius Green downgraded    Thu Jan 19, 04:28 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion, illness) did not practice Thursday, Jan. 19, after being limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: This could pave the way for a nice game for Jesse James. He had 83 yards on five catches against Kansas City, and could easily equal that with attention going to Antonio Brown.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta may be asked to rework deal    Wed Jan 18, 06:16 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta may be asked to restructure his contract this offseason because of his high salary cap figure for 2017.

Footballguys view: Pitta has a cap number of $7.7 million in 2017, and there's $4.4 million remaining in dead money. He led the league in receptions for TEs (86) this year, but Pitta's production does not match that price tag. We'll see if something gets reworked between the two sides.

  Patriots | Martellus Bennett limited    Wed Jan 18, 05:14 PM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: Bennett says he's playing against the Steelers in the AFC Championship Game. We're likely to see him limited in practice all week.

  Steelers | Ladarius Green limited Wednesday    Wed Jan 18, 04:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

  Steelers | Ladarius Green not expected to suit up    Tue Jan 17, 11:53 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is not expected to play in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 22, against the New England Patriots, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette.

Footballguys view: It would be helpful to have a weapon like Green on the field against a high-powered Patriots team, but there's no way the Steelers are going to rush Green back into action. He's been out since Week 16 and may not even be ready if the Steelers were to make it to the Super Bowl.

  Jaguars | Jaguars expected to cut Julius Thomas    Tue Jan 17, 10:40 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is expected to be released by the team this offseason, according to ESPN's Mike DiRocco. He has the fourth-highest cap figure ($8.3 million) in 2017.

Footballguys view: This wouldn't be a total surprise if it happens. Thomas has failed to play a full 16-game season in his pro career, and he's missed 11 games for the Jaguars since signing a five-year, $46 million deal with the team in 2015. When healthy, Thomas has a nose for the end zone and can create mismatches with his basketball skill set. Just don't ask him to block, and don't expect him to stay healthy. He'd get some interest, perhaps limited, if on the open market.

  Steelers | Ladarius Green struggling to get back    Tue Jan 17, 12:37 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: If Green could be back for the AFC Championship Game that would be a boost for the high-powered Steelers offense. In his first season with the Steelers, Green was only available for six games. We don't think he's going to be ready for this game.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham will likely be back    Tue Jan 17, 09:36 AM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is likely to return to the Seahawks next year, and head coach Pete Carroll raved about his play in 2016. 'I thought Jimmy had a terrific year,' Carroll said. 'He was explosive. He was dynamic. He blocked like he's never blocked before. He became a factor on the perimeter blocking stuff, and he's a highlight film. He's got so many big plays that he made during the year.'

Footballguys view: It's remarkable to think what Graham did this year considering he was coming off a torn patellar tendon. He's got a cap number of $10 million with a $2 million roster bonus due this spring. It's likely the Seahawks work to extend Graham to lower that number.

  Cowboys | Jason Witten plans to return    Mon Jan 16, 09:51 AM

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten plans to return in 2017 for his 15th season.

Footballguys view: Sure, Witten has lost a step (or two) but he still has great concentration and soft hands. He should continue to be a fine target for a young and learning QB Dak Prescott.

  Steelers | Good day for Jesse James    Mon Jan 16, 01:32 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James had five catches for 83 yards Sunday, Jan. 15, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: James was instrumental in the Steelers win. He helped move the chains and made clutch catches to keep drives alive. With so much attention placed on WR Antonio Brown, other targets needed to come through and that's what James did.

  Chiefs | Five catches for Travis Kelce    Mon Jan 16, 01:25 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Travis Kelce had five catches for 77 yards in an 18-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Kelce did most of his damage early in the game. He was quiet for about two and a half quarters, then he made his presence felt with a personal foul penalty. Kelce's disappearing act certainly didn't help the Chiefs.

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook finished with six catches on a team-high 11 targets for 106 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Jan. 15.

Footballguys view: Cook's catch to set up the game-winning field goal will be replayed for years. It was an amazing display of his athleticism, concentration and body control. Without WR Jordy Nelson, the Packers went to Cook more and he came through.

  Redskins | Vernon Davis will be FA    Sun Jan 15, 04:50 PM

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Davis can get one final payday. He signed a one-year deal with Washington after doing next to nothing (except winning a Super Bowl) with the Broncos in 2015. Davis was great depth behind injury prone starter Jordan Reed, and Davis performed well as a reserve or as a starter this year. If the price is right, Washington would be wise to bring him back.

  Colts | Jack Doyle to be free agent    Sat Jan 14, 03:43 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: A fifth-year UDFA out of Western Kentucky, Doyle came out of nowhere to become one of the key pieces to the passing game. The Colts will likely bring Doyle back because of his strong connection with QB Andrew Luck.

  Packers | Jared Cook will be FA after season    Sat Jan 14, 03:42 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Cook made it through 10 games with the Packers this year, and there were times in the regular season (Week 11 vs Washington) that he looked like the player he always could be. The potential and talent has always been there with Cook, but staying healthy and staying consistent holds him back.
