The Rams signed Mundt to a one-year deal on Thursday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Mundt, who's spent the past four seasons in Los Angeles primarily serving as a blocking tight end, caught all four of his targets for 53 yards in 2020. It will likely take a few injuries for the 26-year-old to play a larger role in the team's passing plans, but Mundt will aim to continue seeing more playing time in 2021.
Mundt caught all four of his targets for 53 yards during the 2020 regular season. He played just 121 offensive snaps. The fourth-year tight end has been deployed primarily in a blocking role throughout his tenure with the Rams, and that's unlikely to change if he returns to the organization next season. Mundt is a restricted free agent this offseason.
Mundt didn't receive a target in Monday's 27-24 win over the Buccaneers. Mundt achieved fantasy relevance once this year with Tyler Higbee out of the lineup in Week 7, as he caught three passes for 48 yards. When Higbee and Gerald Everett are both active, however, Mundt has averaged just 4.7 snaps on offense per game. His main contributions will be delivered on special teams moving forward.
Mundt caught all three of his targets for 47 yards during Monday's 24-10 win over the Bears. He played 46 of 72 offensive snaps. With Tyler Higbee (hand) out of the lineup, Mundt took advantage of an extended role, and his 34-yard reception in the second quarter was the longest offensive play of the game for the Rams. However, fellow tight end Gerald Everett was targeted a season-high five times and scored a touchdown, and will probably remain more involved in the passing game. If Higbee returns in Week 8 against the Dolphins, Mundt will likely revert back to a depth role and receive limited playing time.
Mundt played 11 offensive snaps and caught his only target for five yards during Sunday's 17-9 win over the Giants. This is only the sixth career reception for the fourth-year tight end, so fantasy managers should continue to look elsewhere for production at the position. Mundt has carved out a blocking role for the Rams, but he's still playing sparingly with just 22 offensive snaps through four games.
