Rob Gronkowski will 'take his time' coming back


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/16/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will "take his time and then take more time" coming back from a torn ACL suffered last season, a source told Bleacher Report

Gronkowski's heart was questioned last year when he took his time coming back from forearm and back procedures. This year he might not care how long he takes as he wants to practice patience in his rehab. 

The knee injury happened in December of last year. Usually it takes nine months to come back from an ACL injury without incident. That would mean he'd be ready to hit the field by late August. 


Kyle Rudolph hopes for contract extension


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/16/2014) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph hopes to stay in Minnesota on a long-term contract, reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Rudolph is entering the final year of his rookie contract. He said Tuesday that the team, which still has approximately $10 million in salary cap space after a busy offseason, has not approached him about a contract extension.

"I've really enjoyed my time here, from the top down, in our organization," Rudolph said. "I think we have the best owners in football. They're willing to do anything for us to win. Everybody in the front office, the new staff, I really like the direction this team is going in. I'm excited to be a part of that future."

Rudolph is hoping to bounce back after he was limited to eight games in 2013 because of a fracture in his left foot. He caught 30 passes for 313 yards and three touchdowns before injuring his foot in a Week 9 loss to the Cowboys. 

He has been studying tape of the Browns from last season so he can get a feel for how he will be utilized in new coordinator Norv Turner's offense. Tight ends such as Jay Novacek, Antonio Gates and Jordan Cameron produced impressive numbers in three different decades with Turner calling the plays.

"I hope to fall in line with that," Rudolph said. "I'm excited to get into this offense."

Kyle Rudolph running without any problems

Patriots might have interest in Dustin Keller


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Dolphins showing interest in Jermichael Finley?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

No end in sight to Jimmy Graham standoff with Saints?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/10/2014) Franchised player Jimmy Graham has until April 22 to file a grievance against the Saints for tagging him as a tight end. He and his representatives have said they believe he's more of a wide receiver than a tight end based on where he lines up and what he's asked to do. The Saints insist he's a tight end. 

It was initially believed by ProFootballTalk.com that the Saints and Graham would agree to terms before the deadline for a grievance arrived. But general manager Mickey Loomis said the team doesn't view April 22 as a deadline to get a deal done. The Saints have until July 15 to sign Graham to a multi-year deal; if they don't then he can only sign the one-year franchise tender. 

Graham had 86 catches for 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns last year.

Colts planning to use both tight ends a lot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) With Dwayne Allen fully recovered from his hip injury, the Colts plan to put him and fellow tight end Coby Fleener on the field a lot, often at the same time, reports ESPN.com. 

“We love using tight ends like everybody else,” coach Chuck Pagano told the website. “But (Fleener) took a big step in Year 2 and played really good football for us and will continue to do that. Getting Dwayne back, we're going to have great options there. You get that inline blocker in Dwayne but don't forget that Dwayne is a heck of a pass receiver, too. So we can create a bunch of mismatches with those guys and get them out in space and get the matchups that you want. It's going to be a great situation.”

Pagano said having Allen and Fleener allows for multiple formations and "gives us a lot of flexibility there.”


Craig Stevens takes pay cut


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) Titans tight end Craig Stevens agreed to a pay cut that slashes his 2014 salary from $3.4 million to $1.6 million, according to OverTheCap.com. Stevens, 29, is a blocking tight end who's never caught more than 23 passes in a season.

Colts GM on Dwayne Allen: 'The guy's a beast'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) Colts tight end Dwayne Allen is fully recovered from a hip injury that derailed his 2013 season. In fact, he says he feels almost 110 percent.

That has general manager Ryan Grigson excited about Allen's 2014 season.

“Dwayne Allen, the guy’s a beast,” Grigson said. “Anyone who game plans against him or watches the tape, or Joe Fan that just sees him how he plays in the red zone, how he plays in traffic, how he blocks at the point of attack, the tempo he plays at and the ferocity he plays at, he’s a guy you want on your team.

“He’s doing very well and we look forward to him having a great year.”


Travis Kelce to be Chiefs' pass-catching tight end


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Anthony Fasano is the Chiefs' starting tight end, but second-year pro Travis Kelce will be "their pass receiver at tight end" and "an important piece" in the passing game, reports ESPN.com. Kelce missed all of last season following microfracture surgery but is expected to be ready for OTAs.

The Chiefs got only 53 catches from tight ends last year.


Owen Daniels' role will be 'plenty big'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Ravens coach John Harbaugh said newly-signed tight end Owen Daniels will have a significant role, despite the presence of Dennis Pitta.

"Just couldn't be more happy, more excited," Harbaugh told the Carroll County Times. "I guarantee his role will be plenty big. He's going to have a lot to do with our success next year, and we've got a lot of big plans for him."

Offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, who was Daniels' coach with the Texans, likes to use a lot of two-tight end sets so Daniels should get opportunities.

Anquan Boldin excited for 49ers offense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/3/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin said he's excited for the offense this year with Michael Crabtree coming back at 100 percent. Crabtree missed the first 11 games last year with an Achilles injury.

Boldin said in an interview with CBSSports.com that Colin Kaepernick now has all of his weapons back with Crabtree, Boldin and Vernon Davis. Quinton Patton is expected to take on a bigger role, and the 49ers have an excellent backfield with Frank Gore and the potential of second-year running back Marcus Lattimore, who is coming back from a devastating knee injury at South Carolina in 2012.

"It's going to be big," Boldin said of Crabtree being back. "It's going to be major for us. Toward the end of the season you were able to see a glimpse of what it's like to have me and him on the field at the same time, and then you have Vernon working out of the tight end position. And we have the young guy in Quinton Patton coming along. We were expecting him to play well. With all four of us on the field and Frank coming out of the backfield and getting Lattimore healthy, it's going to be tough. It's going to be a potent offense, and we're looking to make a run this year."


Kyle Rudolph having no problems with foot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph, whose 2013 season was cut short by a fractured left foot, said he won't be limited when offseason workouts begin Monday, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

"My foot is doing well, and I'm really looking forward to a bounceback campaign," he said. "I've been training all winter (in California) and haven't had any problems."

Rudolph added he's excited to play in Norv Turner's offense.

"If you follow his coaching career, all the places he's been, the tight end has been really important in his offense," Rudolph said. "I'm looking forward to being a part of that. ... My goal every year is to be the best tight end in the NFL."


Why DeSean Jackson is a good fit for Redskins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) DeSean Jackson's skill set will mesh with the Redskins' offense and quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to ESPN.com. "Griffin's ability to throw the deep ball sits well with Jackson's penchant for catching them in the past," the report said. "It's what Jackson does best, and it's why he scares a defense so much. 

"Griffin might not have a laser arm like Michael Vick -- few do -- but it's a very good arm and it's certainly one that should connect with Jackson down the field. Oh, there's also Griffin's ability to extend plays with a group as fast as this one. That, too, should lead to headaches for opposing defensive coordinators in the week leading up to facing this offense."

Jackson joins wideouts Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts and tight end Jordan Reed to give Griffin four dangerous targets. The improved passing game also should open up running lanes for Alfred Morris.


Seahawks in 'no rush' to sign Jermichael Finley


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/2/2014) Free agent tight end Jermichael Finley visited the Seahawks earlier this spring in hopes of signing a deal but it didn't happen. That doesn't mean it won't happen, but there's no hurry to do so. CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports that the two sides are a good fit for each other but there's no rush given Finley's health. Last season he had a neck injury that led to spinal fusion surgery.
