  • Broncos' Chris Manhertz: Moving to Denver

    Manhertz is slated to sign a two-year, $6 million deal with the Broncos, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Manhertz will join his fourth team as he goes into his eighth season. Primarily a blocking specialist, he's never caught more than six passes in a season. With Greg Dulcich and Albert Okwuegbunam ahead of Manhertz on the depth chart, expect him to continue a similar role with his new team.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Just six catches in 2022

    Manhertz played in all 17 games during the 2022 regular season and caught six of eight targets for 42 yards.

    The 30-year-old primarily served as a blocking tight end for the Jaguars once again in 2022, and he was rarely targeted in the passing game. Jacksonville enters the offseason with major question marks at tight end, since starter Evan Engram, Manhertz and fellow backup Dan Arnold are all scheduled to hit free agency. Luke Farrell is currently the only tight end under contract with the Jaguars for 2023.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Records 21-yard reception

    Manhertz played 27 of the Jaguars' 67 snaps on offense and turned his lone target into a 21-yard reception in Sunday's 36-22 win over the Titans.

    Manhertz came through with his first 20-plus-yard reception of the season, as he entered Sunday's contest with five receptions for 21 yards over his first 13 appearances. The 6-foot-6, 255-pound Manhertz continues to share the field regularly with top tight end Evan Engram, but Manhertz is deployed almost exclusively as a blocker whenever he's out there.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: One catch Week 9

    Manhertz caught one of two targets for seven yards during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Raiders.

    Manhertz tied a season high with 36 offensive snaps but still played only a minor role in Jacksonville's aerial attack. No. 1 tight end Evan Engram briefly left the contest with a back issue, but he returned to the field and is expected to be good to go for Week 10. Even if Engram were to miss time, Manhertz would likely still primarily function as a blocker.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Sees rare activity in passing game

    Manhertz played 26 of the Jaguars' 73 offensive snaps in Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Texans, finishing with two receptions for 15 yards on two targets.

    After his first catch of 2022 last week against the Eagles went for no gain, Manhertz was credited with positive yardage for the first time all season Week 5. With snap shares between 28 and 48 percent through each of the Jaguars' first five games, Manhertz looks secure as the top backup to No. 1 tight end Evan Engram, but the 6-foot-6, 255-pound Manhertz will operate almost exclusively as a blocker whenever he's on the field.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: No targets in loss

    Manhertz played 25 of 70 offensive snaps and wasn't targeted during Sunday's 28-22 loss to the Commanders.

    The 30-year-old worked as the Jaguars' No. 2 tight end behind starter Evan Engram but didn't have any involvement in the passing game. Manhertz played in all 17 games last year but totaled only six catches for 71 yards and one touchdown, and he's opened 2022 by once again working as a block-first tight end.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: No targets in finale

    Manhertz played 30 of 68 offensive snaps during Sunday's 26-11 win over the Colts and didn't draw a target.

    Jacob Hollister and Luke Farrell both saw a bit more playing time, but Hollister was the only Jaguars tight end to be a factor in the passing game with three catches for 14 yards. Manhertz, who joined Jacksonville on a two-year, $6.65 million deal in March, suited up in all 17 games but finished with just six receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown. If the 29-year-old opens the 2022 season on the roster, he'll continue to serve mainly as a blocker.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: One target Week 17

    Manhertz failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 50-10 loss at New England.

    Manhertz played only 16 of 47 offensive snaps with James O'Shaughnessy (hip) sidelined, as Luke Farrell operated as the No. 1 tight end Sunday. Manhertz has only six receptions for 71 yards and one touchdown through 16 games and clearly is an afterthought in Jacksonville's passing game.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Returns from COVID list

    Manhertz (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

    Manhertz landed on the COVID-19 list Monday after testing positive for the virus, but he was able to clear the protocols and will be available for Sunday's matchup with New England. The 29-year-old is poised to operate as the Jags' No. 1 tight end since James O'Shaughnessy is sidelined by a hip injury.

  • Jaguars' Chris Manhertz: Moves to COVID list

    Jacksonville placed Manhertz on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after he tested positive for the virus, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Manhertz wasn't targeted on 27 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss to the Jets, and he's now looks to be at risk of missing the Jaguars' Week 17 game against the Patriots. Luke Farrell (illness) also landed on the COVID-19 list, leaving James O'Shaughnessy and Jacob Hollister as the only available tight ends on the roster.
