  • Saints' Garrett Griffin: Catches three passes

    Griffin caught three of three targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 36-27 win over Tampa Bay.

    Griffin hadn't even been targeted with a pass all season before catching three of them Sunday. However, it's possible the Air Force product could go the rest of the season without matching this production.

  • Saints' Garrett Griffin: No role in passing game

    Griffin logged 17 offensive snaps during Sunday's 38-3 win over the Packers.

    Griffin was in the starting lineup next to No. 1 tight end Adam Trautman, but Juwan Johnson was ultimately used much more as a receiver. Meanwhile, Griffin logged nearly half of the available snaps on special teams. Barring an injury to Trautman or Johnson, it seems unlikely Griffin will ever play a significant role in the passing game.

  • Saints' Garrett Griffin: Will return to practice

    Griffin (undisclosed) is expected to return to the Saints' practice field Thursday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Griffin sat out of Monday's exhibition game against the Jaguars due to an undisclosed injury. His quick return to practice is a positive, as he is competing for a depth tight end role with the team. The 27-year-old has primarily been a practice squad player for New Orleans during his four-year career.

  • Saints' Garrett Griffin: Out of action Monday

    Griffin apparently got "banged up" in the Saints' last practice. He's in a battle for a roster spot as a depth tight end, so Griffin can ill afford to miss significant time due to this injury.

    The Saints signed Griffin to the 53-man roster Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

He's played in two games with the team this year, receiving no targets over 40 snaps on offense, and he'll slot in as the No. 3 tight end behind Jared Cook and Adam Trautman.

    The 26-year-old was elevated from the practice squad as an extra player last week and will do so again Monday against the Chargers.

  • Garrett Griffin: Couldn't make final roster

    Griffin was waived Saturday by the Saints, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    It was always going to be a tough path for Griffin to earn a roster spot, particularly after the team selected Adam Trautman in the third round. Griffin, who has spent a good deal of time on the team's practice squad, could be in line to do so again to begin 2020.
