Mayle signed a futures deal with the Chargers on Monday, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports. Mayle spent the majority of the season on the team's practice squad after appearing in 23 games over the past three seasons split between the Cowboys and Ravens. While Antonio Gates' future remains up in the air, the Chargers retain Hunter Henry, Virgil Green and Sean Culkin -- leaving Mayle as the longshot tight end.
Mayle (undisclosed) has been removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Mayle passed a physical Friday morning and presumably will begin practicing within the next few days. He'll need to make a strong impression during training camp, considering Hayden Hurst, Mark Andrews (undisclosed) and Nick Boyle are all roster locks, with Maxx Williams also ahead of Mayle in the pecking order at tight end.
Mayle (undisclosed) will begin training camp on the Ravens' Physically Unable to Perform list, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports. We're surprised to see Mayle on the PUP list considering the tight end wasn't known to be nursing an injury. Nonetheless, Mayle's lack of availability for the start of training camp figures to put him behind the curve in the fight to secure the No. 4 tight end job in Baltimore.
Mayle signed his exclusive-rights tender on Monday, according to the league's official transaction log. Mayle appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens in 2017, but only saw 21 snaps on offense as his primary responsibilities came on special teams. He currently profiles as Baltimore's No. 3 tight end behind Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams, but that could change depending what the team does in the upcoming draft.
Mayle (concussion) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Titans. Mayle faced no limitations at practice Friday and appears clear of the concussion he suffered last Thursday. The 26-year-old should serve as the Ravens' third tight end with Ben Watson and Maxx Williams (ankle) both active Sunday.
