  • Titans' Austin Hooper: Joining Titans

    Hooper is slated to sign a one-year, $6 million deal with the Titans, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    Hooper is coming off a 2021 season in which he logged 38 catches (on 61 targets) for 345 yards and three TDs in 16 games for the Browns. The 27-year-old put those numbers up in the context of working in a time-share that involved David Njoku and Harrison Bryant, to a lesser degree. With the Titans, he'll have Geoff Swaim to contend with for targets, but we nonetheless expect Hooper -- a 2016 third-rounder -- to see an uptick in looks this coming season, and with that, a corresponding increase in fantasy utility.

  • Austin Hooper: Set to be released

    The Browns are slated to release Hooper on Wednesday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    Rumors had been percolating about Hooper's release, especially after the team used a franchise tag on fellow tight end David Njoku. Though a report last week suggested the Browns would keep Hooper, the team now sounds likely to move on from the veteran two seasons in to his four-year, $42 million contract. The 27-year-old caught 84 passes for 780 yards and seven touchdowns in 29 regular-season games with Cleveland the past two seasons.

  • Browns' Austin Hooper: Likely back in Cleveland

    The Browns plan to keep Hooper for the 2022 season, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.

    There was speculation that Cleveland would move on from Hooper, whose hefty contract has not been commensurate with the tight end's production over his first two seasons with the team. That notion grew after the Browns put the franchise tag on fellow tight end David Njoku on Monday, but Fowler's report appears to end that speculation. Hooper is due $9.5 million and carries a $13.2 million cap hit in 2022, per The team would save only $2 million if they moved on, so it might be best to keep Hooper around in case Njoku doesn't live up to his $10.9 million salary.

  • Browns' Austin Hooper: Goes untargeted in win

    Hooper was not targeted in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Bengals.

    Hooper took a step back in his second year with Cleveland, but he remains a big target and blocker at tight end. He had fewer targets (61), catches (38), yards (345) and touchdowns (three) relative to 2020. The 27-year-old tight end carries a big contract entering 2022, but the money isn't guaranteed per Zac Jackson of The Athletic, although he would cost the Browns $11 million against the cap if they chose to move on. While the return on investment is not commensurate with his salary, Hooper is a frequent target and a good blocker for a team that earns its wins mostly by running the ball. If the Browns don't re-sign David Njoku -- there's reported interest on both sides -- then Hooper could reclaim all the targets and then some that he lost in 2021.
