The Chicago Bears are releasing tight end Trey Burton on Friday, according to a source. Burton was a big free-agent bust for Chicago in his two seasons. He had 54 catches for 569 yards and a career-high six touchdowns in 2018, but he played in just eight games (five starts) in 2019 due to injury and had 14 receptions for 84 yards and no touchdowns. The writing was on the wall when the Bears signed Jimmy Graham in free agency, and Chicago also has Adam Shaheen on roster. The 28-year-old Burton should latch on with another organization, but he'll have to prove he's healthy first and will then have to compete for a pass-catching role wherever he lands.
Free-agent TE Jimmy Graham (Packers) agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Chicago Bears Monday, March 16, worth $16 million, according to a source. The deal includes $9 million in guaranteed money.
Fantasy Spin: Graham is coming off a disappointing 2019 season but likely will be the starting tight end for the Bears next season. Fantasy players should consider him a No. 2 fantasy tight end.
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham was officially released Thursday, March 12.
Fantasy Spin: Graham is coming off a disappointing 2019 season but may still be able to find a starting job in free agency. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end next season.
The Green Bay Packers will release tight end Jimmy Graham on Thursday, according to a source. Graham, 33, was the highest-paid tight end in the NFL with an average salary of $10 million and was scheduled to cost $11.666 million against the salary cap in 2020, the second-most of any tight end in the league. The veteran tight end's production on the field didn't match his cost, as he had just 38 catches for 447 yards and three touchdowns in 2019, and he's scored only five times in the last two years with Green Bay. The team will save $8 million toward the salary cap with the move, and they are expected to pursue Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent Austin Hooper to replace Graham. If they don't land Hooper, Jace Sternberger should take on a much larger role in the offense. At this point of his career, Graham doesn't appear to have much left and will strictly be a low-upside, touchdown-dependent TE2 in fantasy wherever he lands.
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham will be released Thursday, March 12, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Graham is coming off one of the worst seasons of his career with only 447 yards and three touchdowns. He probably will receive some interest during free agency but may only be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in 2020.
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham has averaged 33.8 receiving yards and caught five total touchdowns in 32 games with the team.
Fantasy Spin: Graham's tenure with the Packers has to be considered a disappointment, and there is a good chance he will be cut this offseason. No matter where Graham ends up in 2020, he's unlikely to provide much help to fantasy owners.
