  • Watson (appendix) has officially signed a contract with the Patriots, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports. The deal is expected to be for one year and $3 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, which is a slight pay raise from the one-year, $2 million deal Watson got from the Saints last offseason. The 38-year-old tight end immediately steps in as the presumed No. 1 option on the depth chart and should handle a role that offers obvious touchdown upside within a Tom Brady offense.

  • Benjamin Watson: Expected to sign with Patriots
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watson (appendix) is expected to sign a contract with the Patriots in the near future, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. There are still a "few issues" to sort out, but those issues aren't expected to hold up the deal and it looks like the 14-year vet will return to the team that made him a first-round pick in 2004. Watson figures to step into the No. 1 role in the wake of Rob Gronkowski's retirement, with Austin Seferian-Jenkins on hand to serve as a receiving complement.

  • Ben Watson: Puts retirement on hold
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ansah (appendix) plans to continue his football career and has scheduled a visit with the Patriots on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Watson missed the NFC Championship Game due to appendicitis and then considered a transition to the broadcast booth after the season. The Saints replaced him with Jared Cook in March, but plenty of other teams could still benefit from Watson's presence, including the franchise that drafted him in the first round back in 2004. The 38-year-old tight end reportedly also has interest from the Bills, Chiefs and 49ers if things don't work out with New England. A Patriots reunion would offer the most potential for fantasy value, but even that might be a stretch at this point in Watson's career.

  • Ben Watson: Considering 16th season
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watson (appendix) is considering a return to the NFL for his 16th season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Watson appeared poised for retirement following the Saints' NFC Championship loss, but the veteran tight end may not be willing to hang up the laces just yet. The 38-year-old was a surprisingly critical factor in the team's offense for much of last season, registering 400 receiving yards and two touchdowns despite starting just four games, forcing tight ends Josh Hill and Dan Arnold to each take on more of a supporting role. The Saints clearly value Watson's leadership, but even if the 14-year vet were to return for another season, it's unclear if it would be for New Orleans considering the offseason addition of Jared Cook.

  • Saints' Ben Watson: Not suiting up Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Watson (illness) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Rams, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports. Watson's availability for the NFC Championship Game was clouded when appendicitis was revealed as the reason for his absence from practice Wednesday and Thursday. Despite the diagnosis, he so far has avoided surgery and even was a limited participant at Friday's session, leading to a questionable designation. However, his condition hasn't improved enough to reintroduce him to the rigors of tight end. In Watson's stead, Josh Hill, Garrett Griffin and Dan Arnold will hold down the position in the Saints offense.
