  • Cardinals' Stephen Anderson: Signs with Arizona

    Anderson signed a contract with the Cardinals on Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals official site reports. Anderson had 16 receptions for 165 yards and a touchdown across 17 appearances for the Chargers last season and has totaled 60 catches for 706 yards and three scores since joining the league as an undrafted free agent with Houston in 2016. He's expected to offer depth behind Zach Ertz and Maxx Williams, though Anderson could garner a bigger role depending on how well Williams' ACL recovery goes during the offseason.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Plays all 17 games in 2021

    Anderson caught 16 of 19 targets for 165 yards and one touchdown across 17 appearances during the 2021 campaign. Anderson primarily operated as the No. 3 tight end, but both Jared Cook and Donald Parham missed multiple games during the season, so he saw increased roles periodically throughout the year. However, Anderson still wasn't able to crack fantasy relevancy with the pair out. Cook and Anderson will be unrestricted free agents this offseason, so Parham, an exclusive rights free agent, and rookie Tre' McKitty could jump to the top of the depth chart if the Chargers choose not to re-sign two of their top three tight ends.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Catches one pass

    Anderson caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 34-13 win over the Broncos. With both Jared Cook (reserve/COVID-19 list) and Donald Parham (concussion) out for Week 17, Anderson filled in as the Chargers' No. 1 tight end. He effectively shared reps at the position with rookie Tre' McKitty, who played 52 percent of the Chargers' offensive snaps to Anderson's 78 percent. McKitty, however, was more involved in the passing game, seeing three targets to Anderson's one. Parham remains on injured reserve, but with Cook likely to make his return from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of a Week 18 matchup with the Raiders, Anderson will be in store for a role reduction.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Poised for Week 17 start

    Anderson and Tre' McKitty are left as the Chargers' healthy tight ends for Sunday's game against the Broncos after Jared Cook (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, per Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register. The Chargers aren't expected to have Cook available Sunday, and No. 2 Donald Parham (concussion) is already on injured reserve. Anderson is more skilled as a pass catcher than the typical No. 3 tight end, but he's also undersized at 6-foot-3, 230 pounds, potentially setting up a timeshare with McKitty. There is some fantasy appeal for deeper leagues, with Anderson doing well in his limited opportunities this season (15-157-1 on 18 targets in 15 games).

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Two receptions Week 16

    Anderson caught both his targets for 34 yards during Sunday's 41-29 loss to the Texans. Anderson played 35 percent of the offense snaps as he continues to operate as the Chargers' No. 2 tight end. The 28-year-old has 15 receptions for 157 yards and one touchdown this season.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Records one catch in loss

    Anderson was targeted once and recorded one catch for 12 yards during Thursday's 34-28 overtime loss to the Chiefs. Anderson saw a season-high 37 offensive snaps after Donald Parham was carted off the field early in the game with a serious head injury. The 28-year-old tight end hasn't seen much NFL action since his most productive season with the Texans in 2017, serving as a third option behind Jared Cook and Parham for the Chargers. In Parham's absence, Justin Herbert primarily looked toward veteran tight end Cook, who recorded seven targets in the game. Anderson has tallied only 13 catches on the season, but should Parham miss time, there will be additional opportunities at tight end. Anderson would most likely split those additional snaps with fourth-option Tre' McKitty, which would limit his upside.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Targeted twice

    Anderson caught two of two targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Broncos. Anderson only saw six of 82 snaps after coming off of two games with no targets. This is just the fourth-string tight end's third game with at least two catches. Primarily Anderson has been a factor on special teams, and with the continual rise of rookie third-round pick Tre' McKitty, it's possible the backup tight end could be phased out of the offense altogether.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Zero production in loss

    Anderson did not receive a target in Sunday's 27-20 loss against Minnesota. Anderson mostly played special team snaps Sunday as he was only on the field for seven of 59 offensive snaps. The third-string tight end was unable to continue his momentum from last week's breakout game against Philadelphia where he caught all four passes for 39 yards and a touchdown. For the remainder of the season, look for Anderson to continue playing behind veteran Jared Cook and the emerging Donald Parham.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Surprisingly successful outing

    Anderson caught all four of his targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Seahawks. The Chargers opted for a ton of three tight-end sets, which prompted a lot of usage for Anderson, Jared Cook and Donald Parham. It's hard to imagine the sixth-year tight end really factoring into the offense more frequently considering Sunday's totals accounted for essentially half of his total production (9-82-1 line on 12 targets) this season.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Back with Bolts

    Anderson re-signed with the Chargers on Monday. Anderson will return for a third straight season with the Chargers. Hunter Henry's departure could open up increased depth opportunities for Anderson, though Jared Cook and Donald Parham both are a notch above him in the tight end pecking order.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Does not receive tender

    The Chargers have opted not to tender Anderson as a restricted free agent, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Although Anderson was not tendered, the Chargers are still hopeful they can bring him back. He recorded 106 yards on eight receptions across 16 games in 2020.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Nets 52 yards in win

    Anderson caught all three of his targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 38-21 win over the Chiefs. The little-used tight end again put together a commendable performance with Hunter Henry on the reserve/COVID-19 list, nearly doubling his season total in receiving yards. A restricted free agent this offseason, it's entirely possible the Chargers could opt to bring back Anderson to pair as depth with Donald Parham, and the two could be pushed into an even more prominent role in the event the Chargers are unable to come to a long-term deal with Henry, who played the 2020 season on a franchise tag.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Makes impact in win

    Anderson caught four of six targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Broncos. With Hunter Henry on the COVID-19 list, Anderson emerged as a surprising threat at tight end, with his 23-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter helping to set up a field goal. The 27-year-old had only two targets all season coming into Sunday, but if Henry is forced to miss the Chargers' finale as well, Anderson might be productive again in Week 17 against a Kansas City team that could be resting key personnel after clinching the AFC's No. 1 seed.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Secures first catch

    Anderson caught one of two targets for six yards during Sunday's loss to New England. It's the first time all season the 27-year-old has been targeted, and he took advantage with his first catch since 2017. Anderson should continue to fill a reserve role at tight end behind Hunter Henry and Donald Parham.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Signs reserve/future contract

    Anderson signed a reserve/future contract with the Chargers on Monday. Anderson spent the majority of the season on the Chargers' practice squad. He was activated for one game, but only played on special teams. The 26-year-old tight end has spent time with the Chargers, Patriots and Texans during his tenure in the league.

  • Stephen Anderson: Remaining with Chargers

    Anderson signed to the Chargers' practice squad Wednesday. Anderson was waived by the Chargers on Saturday but will remain with the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The 26-year-old played five snaps on special teams during his lone game with the team, but had 25 catches for 342 yards and one touchdown with the Texans in 2017.

  • Stephen Anderson: Waived by Chargers

    Anderson was designated for waivers by the Chargers on Saturday. Anderson had been a non-factor for Los Angeles in the early going. The 26-year-old tight end saw just five snaps on special teams in a Week 5 loss to the Broncos and he had not played a single down before that. He'll now hit the open market in search of a new NFL home.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Rises to active roster

    Anderson was promoted to the Chargers' active roster Tuesday. Anderson signed with the Chargers' practice squad after Hunter Henry (knee) was injured. The team's injury woes continued when Sean Culkin tore his Achilles and Virgil Green suffered a nagging groin injury, so Anderson will get his chance on the 53-man roster. If Green is unable to return for Sunday's game versus the Broncos, Anderson will fill in as the team's No. 2 tight end behind Lance Kendricks.

  • Stephen Anderson: Finds new practice squad

    The Chargers signed Anderson to their practice squad Wednesday. This could serve as a tryout for Anderson since Chargers No. 1 TE Hunter Henry (knee) is facing another lengthy recovery. The team has just two healthy tight ends -- Virgil Green and Sean Culkin -- on the active roster, so Anderson could be promoted for depth ahead of Week 2's matchup with the Lions.

  • Stephen Anderson: Done in New England

    Anderson was cut by the Patriots' practice squad Monday, Zack Cox of NESN reports. Anderson was unable to make the 53-man roster out of camp in New England, and will have to look for an opportunity elsewhere. The California product will look to add depth at the tight end position with another organization, likely on a practice squad level.
