  • Josh Hill (fibula) to start running soon
    Saints TE Josh Hill (leg) is expected to resume running soon.

    Advice: Per Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate, Hill is "progressing well" in his recovery from a broken fibula. Hill probably won't be ready for OTAs but should be fine by training camp. Coby Fleener remains the lead tight end in New Orleans, though Hill was starting to cut into his workload before he got hurt last year. Friday, 10:38 am

  • Jaguars add pass-catching TE Mychal Rivera
    Jaguars signed TE Mychal Rivera to a two-year, $6.75 million contract.

    Advice: The second year of the deal is a team option. Rivera also had interest from the Jets and Colts. Jacksonville is a solid landing spot after moving on from Julius Thomas. Rivera could open the season as the Jaguars' top receiving tight end, but he is unlikely to have much of a box-score impact. Wednesday, 1:50 pm

  • Mychal Rivera off to visit the Colts
    Free agent TE Mychal Rivera is scheduled to visit the Colts.

    Advice: Rivera met with the Jets on Monday, but he left without a deal. Not a dynamic threat as a receiver, Rivera is unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact no matter where he lands, but New York would at least offer a good shot at targets. Monday, 7:09 pm

  • Colts sign TE Brandon Williams
    Colts signed TE Brandon Williams, formerly of the Seahawks.

    Advice: Going on 30, the 2012 UDFA appeared in all 16 games as the No. 3 tight end for the Seahawks last season. In Indy, he'll be a body behind Jack Doyle and Erik Swoope. Williams has six career catches. Monday, 12:24 pm

    Free agent TE Brandon Williams will visit the Colts.

    Advice: Williams logged 149 snaps as the Seahawks' third-string tight end last season. The Colts are looking for depth behind Jack Doyle after trading Dwayne Allen to the Patriots. The 29-year-old has caught just six passes over four NFL seasons. Mar 19, 10:00 am

  • Ladarius Green expects to be ready for OTAs
    Ladarius Green (concussion) plans to be attend offseason workouts.

    Advice: Green hasn't been medically cleared, but the Steelers are expecting him back. He was effective when healthy last year despite playing only six games. There should be more clarity on Green's status before OTAs. Mar 17, 3:32 pm

  • Mychal Rivera visiting Jets on Monday
    Free agent Mychal Rivera will visit the Jets on Monday.

    Advice: Tight end has been a black hole for the Jets in recent years, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins was recently hit with a two-game substance-abuse suspension. Rivera caught just 18 passes for 192 yards last year in Oakland while grading poorly as a run-blocker. He wouldn't be much of an upgrade in New York. Mar 17, 8:11 am

  • Seahawks re-sign Luke Willson to 1-year deal
    Seahawks re-signed TE Luke Willson to a one-year contract.

    Advice: The deal includes an $800,000 signing bonus. Seattle had a brief flirtation with Jared Cook but decided to bring back Willson after Cook signed with Oakland. Per ESPN's Adam Caplan, the deal is worth "up to" $3 million. Willson will resume his role as Jimmy Graham's primary backup. 27-year-old Willson has never caught more than 22 passes in a season.

  • Raiders upgrade tight end corps, snag Cook
    Raiders agreed to terms with TE Jared Cook, formerly of the Packers, on a two-year contract.

    Advice: It's worth "up to" $12.2 million. ESPN's Josina Anderson reports it's "effectively a one-year deal." Cook reportedly turned down a big offer from the Packers, but has landed on his feet in Oakland, where he should have a meaningful pass-catching role. Cook's career has been marked by disappointment, but he was a key weapon for the Packers last season, making plays down the field/up the seam. He's an upgrade on Clive Walford, who busted hard as a sophomore. Cook turns 30 next month. He'll begin 2017 as an upside TE2 for fantasy purposes. Mar 16, 2:13 pm
