  • Coby Fleener: Still has concussion symptoms

    Fleener, an unrestricted free agent, still has symptoms from the concussion he suffered Week 12 last season, Don Banks of The Athletic reports.

    Released by New Orleans in May, the 29-year-old tight end hopes to continue his career but isn't sure if/when he'll be healthy enough to do so. It won't come as any surprise if he ultimately retires, considering he's been diagnosed with five concussions from playing football and has accrued more than $23 million in career earnings, per OverTheCap. That said, Fleener's agent has heard from teams with interest in signing the tight end if he can eventually pass the NFL's concussion protocol.

  • Coby Fleener: Still recovering from concussion

    Saints head coach Sean Payton revealed Saturday that Fleener is still working through the process of getting cleared from the concussion he suffered in November.

    Fleener said the November concussion -- which ultimately landed him on injured reserve -- was the fifth he had suffered in his career. The Saints released him on May 7 just two seasons into a five-year, $36 million contract, and while the concussion history may have played a role in the decision, his lack of production in 2017 (22 catches in 11 games) likely was the larger factor. Fleener, who will turn 30 years old in September, still has $3.4 million in guaranteed money remaining on his contract, so he'll receive some form of payment in 2018 even if he isn't healthy enough to suit up for a team. He shouldn't have too much trouble finding a new club if he regains his health and wants to continue his career.
