Chip Kelly envisions 'big jump' for TE Zach Ertz


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Eagles coach Chip Kelly believes he can get a lot more out of tight end Zach Ertz, who caught 58 passes for 702 yards and three touchdowns last year. "I still think there's a big jump that can happen between Year 2 and 3," Kelly said, per the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Ertz played just half the snaps last season because he didn't block as well as tight end Brett Celek. With wideout Jeremy Maclin's departure via free agency, Philly could lean more on Ertz's receiving skills in 2015.


Sean Payton: TE Josh Hill 'is a player we value a lot'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Saints coach Sean Payton on Wednesday talked up tight end Josh Hill, who should get more opportunities with the trade of Jimmy Graham to Seattle. "Josh Hill is a player we value a lot," Payton said, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Hill, 24, is a 6-5, 250-pounder who caught five touchdowns last season. He finished with 14 catches for 176 yards while playing every game.

Hill and Benjamin Watson, 34, are the team's top tight ends following Graham's departure.

Chiefs have high expectations for TE Travis Kelce


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Although Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce led the team in receiving in 2014, head coach Andy Reid has even higher expectations for him in 2015, according to the Kansas City Star.

Reid believes that the best is yet to come for Kelce.

“You’d think the natural progression would be even more and better, and he was pretty good last year,” Reid said. “He’s tremendously talented, loves to play the game. He’s like a little kid out there. He loves to play.”

Despite the high praise from Reid, the coach knows that there is still room for improvement for the 25-year-old.

“You could see the progress every week in a positive direction,” Reid said. “We kept adding to his menu there, so the plays we wanted to dial up in formations and motions, the running backs and tight ends, they have to know what they’re doing with those. So he continually got better with that as time went on."

After recording no stats as a rookie due to being placed on injured reserve, Kelce tallied 67 receptions for 862 yards and five touchdowns in 2014, all were team-highs.


Dolphins Joe Philbin excited about WR Kenny Stills and TE Jordan Cameron


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin is excited about the overhaul of the receiving corps, notably the additions of tight end Jordan Cameron and wide receiver Kenny Stills, according to the team's official website.

Philbin started off by complimenting Cameron.

“I would say the one thing that (Cameron brings)?would be big skill if I can just throw out that term,”?Philbin said. “He’s a little bit bigger than the tight ends we’ve had. He still runs very very well. I think that’s maybe a little bit of a different dimension. I think the down the middle of the field potentially you might see us attack the middle of the field a hair more. We’re excited about him.” 

The head coach went on to talk about how Stills fit into the Dolphins' offense.

“We thought he was a really good scheme fit in our offense,”?Philbin said. “I thought he had good production. A couple of things that stood out, we kind of a did a study of receivers in the league that had at least 50 catches and one of the things we liked about him, I think he was targeted about 84 times and I think he had 63 receptions. So he was second, I believe, in the league in terms of, if you throw him the ball, he’s going to catch it. We liked the fact that, when the quarterbacks threw him the ball, a high percentage of the time there were completed passes. That was one thing. We thought he was productive on third down. Statistically, conversions on third down. He fit what we do. I thought he’s a good route runner. He has good hands. His speed is good. I thought schematically he was a good fit.” 


Chargers to get TE Ladarius Green more involved


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Chargers head coach Mike McCoy plans on getting tight end Ladarius Green more involved in the offense, reports UT San Diego.

"There are things we can do more with him," McCoy said. "He worked extremely hard. I don't think it was anything he was physically doing out there. I think it was a matter of philosophically what we were doing with the players we had. We got into the 11 personnel game a lot, three receivers and a tight end. When you have the three receivers we had, and you've got (tight end) Antonio Gates, (you'd have to) take the back out of the game. We need to use him more."

Green was limited to only 19 receptions on 24 targets in 2014. Entering his fourth year in the league, the 24-year-old has totaled 40 receptions for 658 yards and three touchdowns.

General manager Tom Telesco echoed McCoy's sentiments about getting Green into the mix.

It's a good problem to have that we have enough guys," Telesco said. "Philip (Rivers) spreads the ball around. Basically, the open guy gets the ball; he doesn't force it to anybody. But Ladarius has a lot of talent. We'll get him in the mix. We will. He's too good not to."

Bengals' Lewis doesn't rule out bringing back Jermaine Gresham


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Free agent tight end Jermaine Gresham may still return to the Bengals, coach Marvin Lewis said. 

Meeting with the media Tuesday, at the NFL Owners Meetings, Lewis said Gresham had been talking to defensive end Michael Johnson, who returned to the Bengals after spending a year in Tampa Bay. 

"I had a premonition that this would occur with Jermaine," Lewis said, per Bengals.com, "because Jermaine is a homebody and they all watched what happened with Michael."

"He’s a man of many, many, many, many, many, many, many moods," Lewis said. "But one he’s consistent with is, 'I’m loyal to you, coach.'"

TE Travis Kelce feels he's way ahead of last year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Tight end Travis Kelce led the Chiefs with 67 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns last season. He's expecting bigger things in 2015 thanks to a healthy offseason.

“Last year, it was a month before (training camp before I could) finally start running routes,” Kelce told the Kansas City Star, referring to the left knee injury that essentially wiped out his rookie season in 2013. “You can only learn so much in the meeting room before you actually have to go out there and do your job.

“This year, I’ve got an entire season under my belt. I’m much more confident, much more durable in terms of my health. It’s going to be fun to play in front of this KC crowd.”

The Chiefs released veteran tight end Anthony Fasano, who caught 25 passes for 226 yards and four touchdowns last year, so Kelce could be an every-down player this fall.

“(Coach Andy) Reid always says next man up," Kelce told the paper. "I was drafted in the third round two years ago to be a tight end in this offense. No matter what happens I’ll be ready, whether I’m the main guy on every single play or a side (option) that helps us get the ball down the field.”
