Top Anthony Firkser News

  • Falcons' Anthony Firkser: Signs with ATL

    Firkser is signing with the Falcons, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    Firkser spent the first four years of his career in Tennessee, where he started three of 58 regular-season games and caught 106 passes for 1,107 yards and five touchdowns. The tight end showed some ability as a receiver but never earned consistent snaps or targets in a run-first offense. The 27-year-old Firkser now serves as depth behind Kyle Pitts, the clear favorite to lead Atlanta in targets this season.

  • Titans' Anthony Firkser: Productive against Texans

    Firkser recorded four receptions on four targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-25 win over the Texans.

    Firkser maintained an increased role in the Titans' passing attack, as he racked up at least three targets for the second consecutive game. He took advantage of his opportunities and opened the scoring with a five-yard touchdown catch midway through the second quarter. Firkser also made a number of big plays, tallying receptions that went for 24 and 17 yards. After a slow start to the campaign, Firkser has closed the season with at least three catches in three of his last five games while also scoring twice in that span.

  • Titans' Anthony Firkser: Finds end zone

    Firkser recorded three receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Dolphins.

    No Titans pass catcher was able to rack up an impressive stat line due to lack of volume, though Firkser put together a solid performance. He found the end zone for the first time this season on a 15-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter after MyCole Pruitt exited with an ankle injury that appeared to be serious. If Pruitt remains sidelined, Firkser should be able to build on his recent form -- he's recorded multiple receptions in four of his last six games -- in a Week 18 matchup against Houston.

  • Titans' Anthony Firkser: Pair of receptions

    Firkser recorded two receptions on two targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 19-13 loss to Pittsburgh.

    Firkser recorded multiple receptions for the third time in his last four games, though he was still on the field for only 17 offensive snaps. He lost a fumble on Tennessee's first drive, which may have limited his playing time further. Overall, Firkser remains in the tight end rotation in Tennessee, but his production remains unreliable while splitting time with both Geoff Swaim and MyCole Pruitt.

  • Titans' Anthony Firkser: Surprisingly back in mix

    Firkser recorded four receptions on five targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 20-0 win over Jacksonville.

    Firkser saw the majority of his production come within a two-drive span in the second quarter during which he recorded three receptions for 24 yards. Firkser has now seen his involvement in the Tennessee offense spike in two of the last three games, with a combined nine receptions for 60 yards. However, he's still recorded only one reception in six of his last eight contests, which makes him a difficult option to trust for consistent production.

  • Titans' Anthony Firkser: Production fades again

    Firkser recorded one reception on one target for seven yards in Sunday's 36-13 loss to the Patriots.

    Firkser was on the field for 26 offensive snaps (41 percent), but he failed to remain involved in the Titans' offense. One week after seeing seven targets in the absence of Geoff Swaim, Firkser recorded only one target for the fourth time in his last seven contests.

  • Titans' Anthony Firkser: Back in mix

    Firsker recorded five receptions on seven targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 22-13 loss to the Texans.

    Firkser benefitted from the absence of Geoff Swaim (concussion) to climb the tight end depth chart for Tennessee. His five receptions were a season high, and the game marked the first time he's posted multiple catches since Week 5. It remains to be seen whether this performance will keep Firkser more involved in the game plan moving forward, though he would likely benefit should Swaim remain sidelined for a Week 12 matchup against New England.

  • Titans' Anthony Firkser: Remains quiet

    Firkser recorded one reception on two targets for two yards in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Saints.

    Firkser remained buried on the Titans' tight end depth chart and his only catch came early in the first quarter. He has now been limited to one reception for five straight games and has surpassed 10 receiving yards only once in that span.
