Izzo has reached an agreement to sign with the Seahawks' practice squad, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Izzo will join Seattle in hopes of adding some depth to the Seahawks' thin tight end room. With Gerald Everett now on the team's COVID list, Will Dissly will become the primary tight end option, while Tyler Mabry will be the backup. Izzo could be activated to Seattle's roster if it loses any more depth at the position.
The Giants cut Izzo from the practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Izzo appeared in 12 games for the Patriots in 2020, but he has yet to log any regular-season action in the 2021 campaign. He will look to latch on with a practice squad elsewhere.
The Texans waived Izzo on Monday, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports. Izzo averaged 52 snaps over 12 games with the Patriots last season, but he was targeted just 20 times and finished with 13 receptions for 199 yards. If he clears waivers, he'll likely land on the practice squad.
Izzo (undisclosed) logged 17 snaps in Saturday's preseason loss to the Buccaneers, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports. Izzo left the Texans' preseason opener against the Packers with an undisclosed injury and there hadn't been any news on him since. However, his ability to suit up Saturday confirms he's clear of whatever issue he was dealing with. If he makes the final roster, expectations for Izzo should be tempered heading into the season, considering he slots in third on the tight-end depth chart for a team expected to struggle offensively throughout the campaign.
Izzo exited Saturday's preseason game against the Packers due to an undisclosed injury, Mark Lane of Yahoo! Sports reports. Izzo was tended to by trainers on the sideline, but the nature and extent of his injury weren't revealed. The depth tight end will try to regain health before the Texans take on the Cowboys in Week 2 of preseason.
