  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Back with Denver

    Saubert re-signed Wednesday with Denver on a one-year deal, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Saubert appeared in all 17 games with Denver last season, recording eight catches on 12 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown. He's been a solid blocker and consistent contributor on special teams for the Broncos, the two areas where he's likely to provide most of his value if he earns a spot on Denver's Week 1 roster. With the departure of Noah Fant to Seattle, the Broncos are down their top pass-catching tight end from 2022, but Albert Okwuegbunam and rookie third-round pick Greg Dulcich are bigger threats than Saubert to absorb Fant's vacated targets.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Hits pay dirt in win

    Saubert caught his lone target for a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's 28-13 win over the Chargers.

    Saubert operated as Denver's No. 3 tight end Sunday and was the recipient of Teddy Bridgewater's only passing touchdown of the contest. The touchdown was Saubert's first in 11 contests this season, and since he's averaging just one target per game, he'll likely need to find the end zone most weeks to deliver meaningful fantasy value. Since that can't be relied upon, Saubert should remain far off the fantasy radar.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Catches one pass

    Saubert caught his lone target for three yards in Thursday's 17-14 loss to the Browns.

    Saubert played on 42 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps as he continued to operate at the team's No. 2 tight end with Albert Okwuegbunam placed on IR. The 27-year-old tight end was unable to capitalize on his increased playing time, playing well behind starter Noah Fant. Saubert is in no way an option for fantasy purposes. The 6-foot-5, 253-pounder would need both Fant and Okwuegbunam to be sidelined with injuries to see any sort of path to fantasy relevance. The Broncos will host Washington in Week 8.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Catches three passes in loss

    Saubert secured three of his five targets for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

    With Albert Okwuegbunam (hamstring) placed on IR, Saubert saw his first action as Denver's No. 2 tight end. Unfortunately, that didn't equate to much in the way of production behind starter Noah Fant. Saubert played on just 35 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps. With Okwuegbunam sidelined, Saubert will likely continue to see increased playing time behind Fant, but he will remain far off the fantasy radar with so many mouths to feed in the Denver passing attack. Up next for the Broncos is a Thursday night showdown with the Browns in Week 7.

  • Broncos' Eric Saubert: Involved in passing game

    Saubert secured both of his targets for 36 yards in Saturday's 33-6 win over Minnesota.

    Saubert gained most of his yardage on a 22-yard catch-and-run in the second quarter of the contest, with his involvement in the passing game a promising sign in his battle for a roster spot. According to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic, "Saubert appears to have the No. 3 tight end position locked down." If this becomes reality, the veteran will find himself behind incumbent starter Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam on the depth chart. With that said, Okwuegbunam did not play Saturday as he continues rehab from an ACL surgery last November. It remains unclear if Okwuegbunam will be ready for the season opener. If not, Saubert could find himself taking on a larger role in the offense. The 6-foot-5, 253-pounder will look to build upon this performance and his solid training camp when the Broncos visit the Seahawks in Week 2 of the preseason.

    The Broncos signed Saubert to a contract Monday, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.

  • Jaguars' Eric Saubert: Promoted from practice squad

  • Eric Saubert: Back to practice squad

    Saubert reverted to Jacksonville's practice squad after suiting up for Sunday's game against the Chargers, per the NFL's official transaction log.

  • Jaguars' Eric Saubert: Elevates to active roster

    The Jaguars elevated Saubert to the active roster Saturday.

    Tyler Eifert (neck) will sit out Sunday's game versus the Chargers, so Saubert will rise up and add depth at tight end. The 2017 fifth-round pick hasn't suited up in a game since last season, when he played two games with Chicago and caught two passes for 21 yards.

  • Eric Saubert: Finds new home

    Saubert agreed to join the Jaguars' practice squad Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Saubert was let go by the Bears on Wednesday to make room on the 53-man roster, but he didn't have to wait long to find a new team. The 26-year-old caught just two passes for 21 yards across two appearances for the Bears in 2019.

  • Eric Saubert: Waived by Bears

    Saubert was waived by Chicago on Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Saubert was one of five tight ends to originally make the 53-man roster, but he was inactive in Week 1 and is now getting waived by the Bears. Kicker Cairo Santos is taking the roster spot vacated by Saubert.

  • Bears' Eric Saubert: Not playing in season opener

    Saubert (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game in Detroit.

    One of five tight ends the Bears kept on the 53-man roster to begin the season, Saubert's status as a healthy inactive confirms he's the No. 5 option on the depth chart. Even if he moves up in the pecking order as the season unfolds, Saubert will likely be limited mostly to a blocking role.

  • Bears' Eric Saubert: Activated off COVID-19 list

    Saubert was cleared from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

    It appears Saubert never tested positive for COVID-19, but was rather potentially exposed to it. Now that he's been cleared, he'll enter camp looking to make an impression, as the Bears are already relatively deep at tight end.
