  • Dennis Pitta (hip) cleared for OTAs
    Coach John Harbaugh said TE Dennis Pitta (hip) "looks like the same player we’ve seen in the past."

    Advice: Pitta has practiced without limitations at OTAs. He’s "confident" in his surgically-repaired hip, and says he doesn’t have any lingering issues. Two years removed from his last game, Pitta is doubtful to regain his pre-injury form. He’ll be part of a committee with Ben Watson, Maxx Williams, and Crockett Gillmore (shoulder) if healthy.

  • Ebron sitting out OTAs with mystery injury
    Eric Ebron is sitting out OTAs with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Coach Jim Caldwell did not reveal the details of the injury, but it does not sound like a long-term concern. "He’s healing," Caldwell said. "He’s coming along, so we’ve got a few guys with some bumps and bruises and some issues, but he should be back." Ebron should be 100 percent well before training camp. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:01 am

  • Bortles, Thomas met multiple times in spring
    Blake Bortles said he and Julius Thomas met "multiple times" to watch film and develop chemistry this offseason.

    Advice: Bortles said the duo met to "talk about what he wanted from me and what I wanted from him and how we can quickly get on the same page to grow together." Thomas looked to be developing chemistry with Bortles in last year's offseason program, but a broken hand cost him most of training camp and Weeks 1-4. Thomas struggled to integrate himself into the offense once returning, and it seems like he and Bortles want to prevent that from happening again. Even with the passing offense as a whole set to regress, Thomas could see a statistical bump this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:00 pm

  • Bowles confirms Amaro is on roster bubble
    Coach Todd Bowles confirmed third-year TE Jace Amaro is on the roster bubble.

    Advice: The Jets' tight end depth is in a sorry state. Along with Amaro, Kellen Davis and Zach Sudfeld round out the top three. The Jets received a league-low 10 catches from their tight ends last season. It's possible they simply don't plan on using the position, instead opting for an extra tackle in blocking situations or using four receivers. Amaro missed all of 2015 with a torn labrum.

  • Seahawks still hope Graham ready for Week 1
    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says the "hope remains" that Jimmy Graham (patellar tendon) is ready for Week 1.

    Advice: Speaking Thursday, Russell Wilson said Graham is "healing really fast," and will be "back sooner than people think." Wilson's quotes are per ESPN's Sheil Kapadia. The Seahawks have maintained a sense of vagueness with Graham's timeline all offseason, but there seems to be some genuine optimism he avoids the reserve/PUP list. Nevertheless, Graham should be considered a late-round injury question mark for fantasy purposes until further notice. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:13 pm

  • Lions waive/injure Tim Wright
    Lions waived/injured TE Tim Wright.

    Advice: For now, Wright's injury is undisclosed. He should pass through waivers unclaimed and revert to injured reserve. Provided his injury isn't a season-ender, Wright will likely eventually be cut loose with an injury settlement. Wright caught just nine passes in nine games in 2015. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:53 pm

  • Martellus in Tom Brady's 'circle of trust'?
    According to WEEI Boston, Martellus Bennett is "gaining early entry into Tom Brady's circle of trust."

    Advice: Bennett has spent part of OTAs working off to the side with Brady and a small group of other passing-game personnel. Of course, reporter Christopher Price notes Scott Chandler did something similar last year before going on to bomb during the regular season. Bennett is coming off a head-case campaign where the Bears had "pervasive doubts" about his commitment, but he seems to understand the stakes are higher in New England this year. Bennett is a very intriguing fantasy pick in New England. His ADP is in the double-digit rounds. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:15 pm

  • Eric Ebron shed 10 pounds this offseason
    Third-year TE Eric Ebron lost 10 pounds this offseason.

    Advice: Ebron was listed at 255 pounds last season. Getting in better shape certainly will not hurt as he attempts to carve out a bigger role following the retirement of Calvin Johnson. Ebron posted a 47-537-5 line in 14 games as a sophomore. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:24 am

  • Tyler Kroft seeing more 1st-team reps
    Bengals second-year TE Tyler Kroft is seeing expanded first-team reps with Tyler Eifert (ankle) on the shelf.

    Advice: As Eifert's Week 1 status is in doubt, it's possible Kroft will open the season as Cincinnati's starting tight end. The 85th overall pick in last year's draft, Kroft drew Zach Ertz comparisons coming out of Rutgers but spent most of his rookie campaign on the line blocking. Kroft is a name to keep in mind for early-season tight end streamers and DFS players at or near minimum cost. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:24 pm

  • Titans claim TE Cunningham off waivers
    Titans claimed TE Jerome Cunningham off waivers from the Jets.

    Advice: Tennessee is Cunningham's third team after getting cut from the Jets and Giants. He’ll add competition behind Delanie Walker, Craig Stevens, and Anthony Fasano. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:06 pm

  • Bengals TE Hewitt had undisclosed surgery
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Bengals TE Ryan Hewitt is recovering from a "minor, non-football procedure."

    Advice: It sounds like Hewitt will be out for OTAs, but should be ready in time for training camp. An H-back-type blocker, Hewitt can play in-line tight end and fullback. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:59 am

  • Ladarius Green sidelined after ankle surgery
    Ladarius Green underwent offseason ankle surgery and won't participate in OTAs.

    Advice: Green ended last season on I.R. with an ankle injury that apparently required some sort of operation/clean-up procedure, which is believed to have happened in January, according to Chargers beat writer Michael Gehlken. He hasn't participated in offseason workouts and is without a timetable for return, though it's likely the Steelers are just being cautious. Obviously, the Steelers felt comfortable enough with Green's ankle to give him a four-year, $20 million contract. Green's recovery is worth monitoring, but we tentatively expect him back for camp.

  • Niles Paul taking part in team drills at OTAs
    Niles Paul (ankle) is participating in team drills at OTAs.

    Advice: It's a pretty big surprise, as Paul was expected to be questionable for the start of training camp in roughly two months. Paul probably isn't exactly 100 percent, but he appears to be on or ahead of schedule in his recovery from a gruesome ankle fracture and dislocation that happened last summer.

  • Eifert's (ankle) timeline set at 3-4 months
    Former NFL head team physician David Chao reports Tyler Eifert's ankle surgery requires 3-4 months recovery.

    Advice: Chao works for Sirius XM NFL Radio and was an NFL head team physician for 17 years. He knows what he's talking about. Eifert is undergoing surgery on Wednesday to repair a "loose ligament" in his ankle, and according to Chao, Eifert is "in jeopardy" for the start of the season. Eifert's recovery is going to have to go as smoothly as possible for him not to miss regular-season action. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:58 am

  • Report: Eifert may miss 'first couple games'
    A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Tyler Eifert "could miss the first couple of games of the season" following Wednesday's ankle surgery.

    Advice: Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Eifert is undergoing surgery to "repair a loose ligament on the side of his foot," and the "worst-case scenario" is Eifert "to be out the first few games" of the season. Eifert initially injured his ankle in the Pro Bowl, and it's been giving him fits ever since. It may be around midseason before Eifert truly makes an impact since he'll miss the entire offseason.

  • Thomas Duarte signs rookie contract
    Dolphins signed seventh-round WR/TE Thomas Duarte to a four-year contract.

    Advice: Standing in at 6-foot-2, 231 pounds, Duarte is a slot prospect. He needs to drastically improve his blocking to be considered a tight end at the NFL level. Duarte will likely spend his rookie campaign on the practice squad. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:17 pm

  • Clive Walford still expected back before camp
    ESPN's Adam Caplan confirms Clive Walford (lacerated knee) is expected back "well before" training camp.

    Advice: Walford is sitting out OTAs as he recovers from a "big gash," but all indications are that he'll be ready for the summer's most important practices. Coming off a strong rookie year, Walford has some TE2 appeal for the Raiders' on-the-rise offense. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:41 am

  • Tyler Eifert 'in jeopardy' for season opener
    ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Tyler Eifert (ankle surgery) is "in jeopardy" for Week 1.

    Advice: Eifert would basically have to have no snags in his rehab to be ready, and "no snags" has never been Eifert's health M.O. Eifert will undoubtedly miss the entire preseason, and likely spend the majority of camp on the active/PUP list. Barring a major setback, he should be able to avoid reserve/PUP, which would cost him six games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:03 am

  • Eifert needs ankle surgery, out three months
    The Cincinnati Enquirer's Jim Owczarski reports Tyler Eifert is expected to miss three months following a "minimal procedure" on his ankle.

    Advice: Eifert originally suffered the injury at the Pro Bowl. It was thought at the time he was just dealing with a sprain, but he is still having problems nearly four months removed from the initial injury. The three-month timetable means he will almost certainly miss the entire preseason, and it is not a given he will be ready for Week 1. Already set to see a monster target share before this news, A.J. Green could set a career-high in targets. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:07 am
