  • Watson says he's been in talks with Saints
    Free agent TE Ben Watson has been in talks with the Saints.

    Advice: "I had a good conversation with Sean (Payton) and Mickey (Loomis)," Watson said. "I’d love to be playing there. If not there, we’ll see where else. I think I’ll know more in about a month." Coming off a career year, Watson expects to return for at least one more season. 35-year-old Watson could be willing to settle for a one-year deal.

  • Dolphins could ask Cameron to take pay cut
    The Palm Beach Post believes the Dolphins may ask Jordan Cameron to take a pay cut.

    Advice: Cameron was signed to replace Charles Clay's production, but he managed just 35 catches on 70 targets for 386 yards and three scores. There is almost no way Miami keeps Cameron at his scheduled $9.5 million cap hit. Releasing Cameron would save Miami all of his $7.5 million base salary against the cap.

  • Colts TE Doyle could have expanded 2016 role
    Colts restricted free agent TE Jack Doyle is expected to have a bigger role in 2016.

    Advice: With one of Dwayne Allen/Coby Fleener not expected back, Doyle’s the in-house favorite to return as the No. 2 tight end. He’s been limited to 30 percent of snaps over the last three years in a blocking role. The Colts are a heavy two TE offense, but could run more three-wide sets in their first full season under Rob Chudzinksi. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:30 pm

  • Tyler Eifert diagnosed with sprained ankle
    Tyler Eifert has been diagnosed with "just a sprained ankle."

    Advice: Eifert is expected to be 100 percent well ahead of the Bengals' offseason program. Eifert has proven to be quite injury prone, but will be a top-five TE1 in 2016. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:31 pm

  • Report: Zach Miller seeking $5M per season
    The Chicago Tribune reports free agent TE Zach Miller wants $5 million per season in his new contract.

    Advice: Although Miller came up huge in the second half of the season for the Bears, it's an asking price they'll likely deem ludicrous for a journeyman tight end going on age 32. Beat writer Brad Briggs believes Miller will reach the open market if he doesn't lower his demands. If Miller prices himself out of the Bears' plans, perhaps they'll give longer thought to keeping Martellus Bennett. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:26 am

  • 'All indications' suggest Gates not retiring
    The San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports "all indications" suggest impending free agent Antonio Gates will not retire.

    Advice: Gates said he did not "want to go out as a loser" in December, and he was reportedly inquiring about the Chargers' draft plans immediately following the season. Gates is an impending free agent, but both sides have expressed a desire to work out a new deal. Gates has been with the Chargers since 2003. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:57 am

  • Tony Gonzalez on Ebron: Needs a new routine
    Future Hall of Fame TE Tony Gonzalez said he believes Eric Ebron "needs to turn his routine around."

    Advice: "From a talent perspective, he could be one of the best tight ends in the league," Gonzalez said. "I don’t know who’s teaching him out there. I don’t know what his coach is telling him, but obviously, I would think that he needs to turn his routine around. If he could figure out a routine that would help him get to where he should be, then he’ll be on his way. But a lot of guys don’t do that; they don’t figure it out." If Calvin Johnson retires, which seems to be the case at the moment, the Lions are going to be looking for a serious third-year leap from Ebron. He needs to cut out the mental mistakes and the drops to ascend to that next level. The Lions hired ex-Miami coach Al Golden as TEs coach on Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:59 pm

  • Cardinals re-sign Darren Fells
    Cardinals re-signed exclusive rights free agent TE Darren Fells to a one-year contract.

    Advice: He'll make the minimum salary and be a restricted free agent in 2017. Turning 30 in April, Fells easily held off Troy Niklas for the Cardinals' starting job this past season, collecting 21-311-3 receiving. Fells blocked poorly in both the run and pass games, however, and should not be guaranteed first-string status in 2016. Niklas needs to get healthy and stay healthy. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:45 pm

  • Tyler Eifert comes up lame in Pro Bowl game
    Tyler Eifert suffered a foot injury in Sunday night's Pro Bowl game.

    Advice: Initial tests on Eifert's foot came back negative for anything substantial, but he left Aloha Stadium in a protective walking boot. He'll meet with the Bengals' foot specialist when he returns to Cincinnati this week. "I jammed my heel, I'll be good," promised Eifert. Coming off a breakout, 13-touchdown campaign, the injury is a reminder of Eifert's fragility. The 25-year-old tight end has missed 19 games through three NFL seasons, including Weeks 13, 15, and 16 this past season with a neck stinger and a concussion. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:24 pm

  • Jets could have interest in TE Scott Chandler
    The Jets could have interest in TE Scott Chandler this offseason.

    Advice: Chandler's a potential cap cut after closing out the year in a limited role. The Jets have a need for a veteran tight end with Jace Amaro coming off a lost season. Chandler would be a fit for OC Chan Gailey’s scheme after posting career highs in touchdowns under him in Buffalo. The Patriots would save $2.1 million from releasing Chandler.

  • Chiefs extend Kelce for 5 years, $46 million
    Chiefs signed TE Travis Kelce to a five-year, $46 million extension through 2021.

    Advice: It's been a good week for Zeus. First he landed a reality dating show on E! Now, he's the NFL's second highest-paid tight end behind only Jimmy Graham. Kelce has emerged as a huge weapon for Kansas City, hauling in 1,737 yards and 10 touchdowns over his last two seasons. He's been a model of consistency, as his stats from 2015 were almost identical to the ones he posted a year earlier. The deal comes with $20.5 million guaranteed. Although Kelce often frustrates fantasy owners because he isn't force fed targets by Alex Smith, he is a difference-making presence in the Chiefs' offense, and is also capable of manhandling opponents in the run game. At age 26, Kelce is a complete tight end still in his ascent phase. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:11 am

  • Heath Miller expected back with Steelers
    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette expects Heath Miller back with the Steelers in 2016.

    Advice: 33-year-old Miller's receiving contributions and particularly his run blocking have fallen off in recent years, but he's owed a reasonable $4 million in 2016 and remains by-far the best tight end on the Steelers' roster. Perhaps he'll lose a few more snaps to rising sophomore Jesse James in 2016, but Miller is a virtual lock to open the season as the Steelers' starting tight end. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:08 pm

    Advice: The 39-year-old has been long-snapping since breaking into the NFL with the Titans in 2000. He hasn't missed a game since 2002. Leach snapped for the Broncos for 6.5 seasons before spending his final seven in the desert. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:39 am
