Ravens TE Dennis Pitta hopeful for 2015 return


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta hopes to take the field in time for the 2015 season, but admits it's too early to determine if that goal can become a reality.

Pitta has undergone surgeries to repair a fractured and dislocated hip in each of the last two years.

"We still have some time to be able to assess where I'm at," Pitta told the Baltimore Sun. "I sure hope that I'll be on the field next year. That's my hope; that's my goal. We'll just see if I can get there."

Pitta has played in just seven games in the last two seasons combined.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) The Ravens announced on Friday that tight end Phillip Supernaw, safety Brynden Trawick, cornerback Rashaan Melvin and offensive lineman Ryan Jensen signed their exclusive-rights free agent tenders.

Supernaw was mostly a reserve in 2014 and had two catches for 27 yards. Trawick is a backup safety that plays on special teams coverage units. Melvin was signed off of the Dolphins' practice squad after injuries decimated the cornerbacks. Jensen was a 2013 draft pick that ended up spending the majority of 2014 on the practice squad.

 


Chargers TE Antonio Gates seeking to scale back workload


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Old Man River, otherwise known as Antonio Gates, has barely missed a beat well beyond the years in which most players have settled into their retirements. But Gates, who will turn 36 in June, is finally looking to lessen his workload next season.

Gates played 787 snaps in 2014, which ranked 17th at his position and proved far more than many younger tight ends. He was also more productive than nearly all of them with 69 catches for 821 yards and 12 touchdowns, the second-highest total of his career. But while promoting a boxing match in Detroit, he told Monday Morning Quarterback that he would like to scale it back in 2015.

"With injuries and whatnot, I played a little bit more than they expected me to play last season," he said. "I was playing the whole game. How I feel next year, it depends on how much volume they have me doing. I'd like to come in on third-and-7s, red zones, those situations. That's what my contribution is at anyway."

His plan would give young, athletic Ladarius Green a chance to emerge as the primary tight end for the Chargers. Green took a step back last year with just 19 receptions for 226 yards and no scores after racking up 376 yards and three touchdowns in 2013.


Report: Chiefs release TE Sean McGrath


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Niners TE Davis rededicating himself in offseason


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Was the statistical slide experienced by one-time 49ers standout tight end Vernon Davis in 2014 a one-year wonder or downward trend? Davis is working to increase the chance that it is the former.

Davis has told the team website that he has placed a great emphasis this offseason on a strength and conditioning program. He had skipped that last year to concentrate on landing a new contract, but has since put aside that distraction.

"I'm here this year because I want to get better," he said. "I want to win. I want to develop some chemistry amongs my teammates and get to know guys. There are a lot of new guys here and you just never know when this game is over for you." He added that he wanted to give football "all I can give it."

Davis caught just 26 passes for a career-low 245 yards last year.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

"You guys are in for a treat," Davis said. "He looks like a totally different guy."

"I just want to do everything I can to get better and do what I can to help this team win," Kaepernick said.

Lions' Caldwell considers Pettigrew a 'foundation'-type player


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew had his worst season from a statistical standpoint in 2014, totaling a career-low 10 catches for 70 yards and no touchdowns. His numbers aren't expected to improve dramatically in 2015 since the Lions want to get second-year tight end Eric Ebron more involved in the passing game.

Still, coach Jim Caldwell holds Pettigrew in high regard.

"I think he's an iron man," Caldwell said, per MLive.com. "(He did a) tremendous job. Got a lot of respect for that man. Let me tell you something, he was tough. He was gritty. And I think those guys are the kinds of guys you can build a foundation upon.

"He's one of those guys."

Jaguars shopping TE Marcedes Lewis?


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/6/2015) Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis, who has been with the team since 2006, appears to be on the trading block, per Pro Football Talk. 

Lewis, however, will be a difficult player to move. The 31-year-old is coming off a season in which he caught just 18 passes and is due $6.65 million in base salary this year. The report suggests the Jaguars would be willing to take some of Lewis' salary or accept a late-round draft pick in return.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Manning spent the week throwing to Broncos pass catchers Owen Daniels, Andre Caldwell, Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer and Virgil Green

Manning poked fun at Thomas by photoshopping him into a group picture, taken at Duke after a workout.

Lions TE Eric Ebron has been working out with Matthew Stafford


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said that tight end Eric Ebron has been working out with quarterback Matthew Stafford in Atlanta this offseason, reports the Detroit News. Lombardi also said that the plan is to have Ebron be the No. 3 weapon in the passing game this year.

Ebron, 21, finished his rookie season with 25 catches for 248 yards and one touchdown. 

"Listen, there's a big learning curve, obviously, for any rookie. And the tight end position is one that requires a lot," Lombardi said, per MLive.com. "As you look back, if you're self critical, maybe we asked a little too much from him from that perspective. I think there was just a volume that he struggled with early.

"But, listen, he was productive, and for anybody the second year is always where you see the biggest jump."


Saints TE Josh Hill wants to grow into new role


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) After trading trading Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks, tight end Josh Hill is ready to step into his new role with the Saints, according to the team's offical website.

“I think it might open a few opportunities for me as I continue to grow in my role and just do everything they ask me to do,” Hill said when asked about the trade of Graham to the Seahawks.

Hill recognized that Graham helped him transition from college to the professional level.

“It’s a big difference, especially coming from a smaller school and a smaller city," Hill said. "He was always there for me. We became pretty good friends over the past few years so it will definitely be different without him.”

Head coach Sean Payton believes that Hill is ready to step up.

“Josh Hill is a player that we value a lot," Payton said last week at the NFL annual meeting. "He’s not on anyone’s fantasy first three rounds, I promise you, but he’s a real good tight end. He’s versatile in the running game, in the pass receiving game, a special teams player.”

Hill, heading into his third year in the NFL, has recorded 20 receptions for 220 yards and six touchdowns.

Housler posted career lows in 2014, grabbing just nine passes for 129 yards.
