  Ravens | Baltimore gives Griff Whalen a look    Fri Jul 21, 12:06 PM

The Baltimore Ravens worked out free-agent WR Griff Whalen (Chargers) on Friday, July 21. Whalen underwent a physical and there is reportedly 'mutual interest', according to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec.

Footballguys view: We don't expect huge things from Whalen in a crowded position group. He's possibly a camp body. However, with the constant injuries to Keenan Allen and the rumors of season ending surgery for rookie Mike Williams, he might want to give his old team a call and see if he can get into a situation with more upside.

Free-agent RB Ronnie Hillman (Vikings) was claimed off waivers by the San Diego Chargers Tuesday, Nov. 22. WR Griff Whalen was waived in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: The Chargers needed more depth behind starter Melvin Gordon. We don't see Hillman having much fantasy value with his new team. If he makes the active roster, Hillman may only mix in a tiny bit as a third-down back.

  Dolphins | Griff Whalen on roster bubble    Thu Aug 25, 08:44 PM

Miami Dolphins WR Griff Whalen has not done anything to cement the need for the team to carry a sixth wide receiver, especially if they have to go into the regular season with three quarterbacks and three centers.

Footballguys view: With Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills ahead of him, Whalen would have had a hard time generating any production.

Footballguys view: Just a little depth for the Colts - nobody added now is going to really have much of an impact, or at least you cannot expect them to.

  Colts | Two WRs have better chances to make team    Thu Jul 3, 07:12 PM

Indianapolis Colts WRs Da'Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen have a better chance to make the final roster if the team decides to keep six receivers on the final roster, because WR LaVon Brazill has been suspended for the 2014 season.

Footballguys view: Rogers has real upside and seems to have put his off the field issues behind him, though he is still blocked enough to make him no more than a high-ceiling dynasty stash for when Hakeem Nicks leaves and Reggie Wayne retires. Whalen was hot to end the season and could hold onto his slot position, which might make him an interesting stash in PPR leagues. Neither is likely to put up numbers this year though.

  Colts | LaVon Brazill suspended    Thu Jul 3, 04:32 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR LaVon Brazill has been suspended for at least one year without pay by the NFL for violating the policy and program for substances of abuse.

Footballguys view: Brazill is a repeat offender, in fact just had to deal with a four-game suspension last year. He wasn't worth worrying about offensively but was solid in special teams. Keep an eye on Da'Rick Rogers as a potential replacement though Donte Moncrief may see some extra works as the team tries to maximize their rookie pick.

  Colts | Three WRs may compete for one spot    Sun Jun 1, 08:57 PM

Indianapolis Colts WRs LaVon Brazill, Da'Rick Rogers and Griff Whalen may compete for one roster spot during training camp. It appears WRs Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton, Hakeem Nicks and Donte Moncrief are locks to make the roster.

Footballguys view: The most talented player here is Rogers, but his game lacks a lot of polish. We could see Brazill make the team because of his speed and ball-tracking ability. We feel Whalen is the longest shot to make the roster.
