Mundt will remain with the Rams after the team placed a contract tender on the exclusive rights free agent Tuesday. The 25-year-old was primarily used as a blocker in 2019, hauling in only four passes for 26 yards. Through 13 games, he saw 367 total snaps across offense and special teams, and Mundt was only targeted seven times. He'll likely continue his depth tight end role for the Rams in 2020.
Mundt hauled in four of seven targets for 26 scoreless yards over 13 games in 2019. Mundt played more than expected since Gerald Everett battled a knee injury and missed three games, but Mundt was mainly used as a run-blocker. The 25-year-old ran a route on 49.4 percent of his snaps, and, with many skilled pass-catchers, it's not surprising that he was targeted sparingly. Mundt will be an exclusive-rights free agent in March.
Mundt caught two of three targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 44-21 loss to the Cowboys. Despite Gerald Everett (knee) sitting out, Mundt played just 11 offensive snaps and was targeted on just three of Jared Goff's 51 passes. The large deficit didn't allow a run-blocker like Mundt much tread, and the 25-year-old could see a further decrease in usage if Everett is back for Sunday's contest against the 49ers.
Mundt (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports. Mundt's rarely used on offense, and even when he is, it's mainly in a blocking role while Gerald Everett and Tyler Higbee garner receiving work. Even with both Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Robert Woods (personal) inactive, Mundt figures to stay out of fantasy relevancy.
Mundt (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. Mundt appeared on the injury report mid-week with the issue but has put in two limited practices to close it out. He logged his first catch of the season Week 10, and with Gerald Everett (wrist) and Tyler Higbee (knee) also questionable, the 24-year-old could be looking at a few extra snaps Sunday.
