Top Daniel Helm News

  • Daniel Helm: Time in Atlanta over

    Helm was waived by the Falcons on Monday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    Helm joined the Falcons on a reserve/future contract in January after spending 2021 with the Raiders. He'll now try to get a deal elsewhere, while Atlanta inked Tucker Fisk in a corresponding move.

  • Falcons' Daniel Helm: Signs with Atlanta

    The Falcons signed Helm to a reserve/future contract Thursday.

    Helm spent the 2021 campaign in the Raiders' organization and appeared in nine regular-season games. He had a minimal offensive impact and hauled in one of two targets for minus-1 yard, but he'll now attempt to carve out a role with Atlanta.

  • Daniel Helm: Signed to Raiders' practice squad

    Helm was signed to the Raiders' practice squad Tuesday.

    The tight end was cut by the team Saturday and quickly returned to the Raiders' practice unit Tuesday. Helm appeared in nine games this season with Las Vegas, operating mostly as a special-teams option.

  • Daniel Helm: Let go by Raiders

    Helm was cut by the Raiders on Saturday.

    Helm joined the Raiders in late October but will part ways with the organization ahead of Week 18. He played a minimal role during his time with the team.

  • Raiders' Daniel Helm: Joins Raiders

    Helm was signed to the Raiders' roster Monday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

    The timing of the signing will give Helm two weeks to acclimate to his new surroundings, as the Raiders are heading into their Week 8 bye. This addition of a tight end is bound to raise some eyebrows over the status of Darren Waller (ankle), who sat out Vegas' Week 7 win over Philadelphia.

  • Daniel Helm: Waived by San Fran

    Helm was waived by the 49ers on Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    The 26-year-old re-signed with San Francisco in mid-March but won't remain with the team through the offseason. Helm made his NFL debut in 2020 and wasn't targeted in five games.

  • 49ers' Daniel Helm: Pens deal with Niners

    Helm re-signed with the 49ers on Wednesday, Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Helm suited up in five games -- his first NFL appearances -- for the 49ers in 2020, logging just 28 offensive snaps. The 25-year-old didn't provide much receiving upside at tight end during his collegiate career at Duke. He'll need to battle for a roster spot during training camp.

  • Daniel Helm: Shifts back to practice squad

    Helm reverted to the 49ers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Helm collected seven of his 11 total snaps on offense during Saturday's 20-12 win over Arizona, but he remains without a reception over five appearances this season. George Kittle's Week 16 activation from a foot injury does nothing to improve Helm's potential involvement in the passing game moving forward.

  • 49ers' Daniel Helm: Elevated for Week 16

    Helm was promoted to the 49ers' active roster from the practice squad Friday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The 25-year-old was also elevated to the active roster Week 15 and played 21 offensive snaps, though he didn't receive a target. Helm figures to play even more of a depth role this weekend with George Kittle (foot) back from injured reserve.

  • Daniel Helm: Sinks back to practice squad

    Helm reverted to the 49ers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    The Duke product was contained to only special-teams usage over his first three NFL appearances Week 6, 9 and 10, but he fielded 21 of 84 offensive snaps against the Cowboys. Helm didn't attract any targets in the passing game, however, as Ross Dwelley paced the tight end position with two catches for 28 yards.

  • 49ers' Daniel Helm: Bumps up to roster

    The 49ers elevated Helm to the active roster Saturday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Helm is listed as a COVID-19 replacement, and he could directly fill in for rookie tight end Charlie Woerner (undisclosed) during Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Helm has suited up for three games with the 49ers this season.

  • Daniel Helm: Back with Niners

    The 49ers signed Helm to their practice squad Wednesday.

    Helm was let loose by the 49ers last week after coming off the reserve/COVID-19 list, so he appears healthy in his return to the organization. The Duke product has suited up in three games with the 53-man roster in San Francisco this season, failing to record a fantasy-relevant stat over that span.

  • Daniel Helm: Cut loose by 49ers

    Helm was activated off the practice squad COVID-19 list and cut by the 49ers on Thursday.

    Helm had resided on the list since Nov. 20, so it's a positive sign that he was finally cleared from the NFL's COVID-19 protocols. Helm will now look for a an opportunity elsewhere around the league, as he saw action in three games on the 53-man roster for the 49ers this season thus far.

  • Daniel Helm: Heads to COVID-19 list

    The 49ers placed Helm on the practice squad COVID-19 list Friday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Helm has either tested positive for the virus or come into close contact with an infected person. He'll be required to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to team activities. The 49ers are in the midst of a bye week, and Helm is a candidate to be promoted from the practice squad as long as he's healthy.

  • Daniel Helm: Heads back to practice squad

    Helm reverted to the 49ers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    The Duke product made his third appearance of the season Sunday against New Orleans, fielding 10 special-teams snaps but going without a notable contribution on the stat sheet. Helm will remain on call, as he may be needed again in the near future with George Kittle (foot) on injured reserve as of Nov. 5.

  • 49ers' Daniel Helm: Elevates from practice squad

    The 49ers elevated Helm to the active roster Saturday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Helm was brought up last week to serve as depth at tight end following news that George Kittle (foot) is expected to be done for the season. Helm is back with the active roster for Sunday's game versus the Saints, and he will line up as the No. 4 tight end.

  • 49ers' Daniel Helm: Elevates to active roster

    The 49ers elevated Helm from their practice squad ahead of Thursday's game against the Packers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    Helm was one of three pass catchers promoted to the roster as designated replacements for Kendrick Bourne, Deebo Samuel (hamstring) and Brandon Aiyuk, all of whom were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list a day earlier. Even with George Kittle (foot) on injured reserve, the 49ers still have Jordan Reed, Ross Dwelley and Charlie Woerner as available tight ends, so Helm won't be a lock to see the field Thursday.

  • Daniel Helm: Back in Bay Area

    The 49ers signed Helm to their practice squad Wednesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Helm cleared waivers Wednesday after he was cut by the team a day earlier, and the team elected to keep him in-house. The 25-year-old made his NFL debut in last week's win over the Rams, so he'll add nice depth and familiarity to the tight end depth chart on the practice squad.

  • Daniel Helm: Heads to waivers

    The 49ers waived Helm on Tuesday.

    Helm made his NFL debut in this past Sunday's win over the Rams, as he logged five special-teams snaps but none on offense. If the 25-year-old tight end clears waivers, he'll be a practice squad candidate.
