Walford (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns.
Walford has suited up in the last three games for the Dolphins, logging 23 total snaps and making one catch for eight yards. In his stead, tight end duties will be handled by Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe and Chandler Cox.
Walford (leg) signed with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Walford signed with the Dolphins in March and stuck with the time through the entire offseason and preseason, but he was cut with an injury settlement in August. The 28-year-old is healthy now, however, and he'll add depth to the Dolphins tight-end corps.
The Dolphins waived Walford (leg) with an injury settlement Tuesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Walford appears to be nursing an undisclosed right leg injury and is sporting a walking boot. The fourth-year pro was an odd man out in Miami's crowded tight end room, and will look for an opportunity elsewhere in the league when back to full health.
Walford (undisclosed) brought in both of his targets for 34 yards in Thursday's preseason contest against the Falcons.
Walford appears to have fully recovered from the undisclosed injury that kept him from practicing recently, and he performed when called upon in Miami's preseason opener. The fourth-year tight end could see some work as a pass catcher in 2019 but is unlikely to operate in anything more than a depth capacity.
Walford (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
The specifics of Walford's injury remain undisclosed, but it reportedly isn't considered to be serious. The 2015 third-round pick will resume competing for a depth role when he gets healthy.
Walford signed a contract with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Walford played all of two offensive snaps with the Jets last season, both of which came during a Week 17 contest against the Patriots. He'll spend the offseason working to distinguish himself in a crowded Miami tight-end room that already includes Mike Gesicki, Nick O'Leary, Dwayne Allen and Durham Smythe.
Walford played two offensive snaps in 2018.
Walford's only game of the season came in Week 17 versus the Patriots, in which he did not register an offensive statistic. The 27-year-old had a brief stint with the Colts during the regular season, but was not active for a single game with the team and was ultimately waived by Indianapolis. The fourth-year pro then signed with the Jets on Dec. 27. Walford previously led Gang Green with seven receptions and 92 yards during the preseason, and will now spend the offseason competing for a depth role behind Chris Herndon and Jordan Leggett.
Walford signed a contract with the Jets on Thursday,
Walford previously spent time with the Jets this offseason, when he led the team with seven receptions and 92 yards through all four preseason games. The fourth-year pro was waived by the Colts on Dec. 7 after having spent nine days with the team, and he now rejoins New York's squad as a depth piece behind Chris Herndon and Jordan Leggett.
The Colts waived Walford on Friday.
Walford was waived to make room for rookie wideout Daurice Fountain on the 53-man roster. The fourth-year tight end was signed by the Colts as a free agent Nov. 28, but he was not active for a single game with the team. Walford will now be subjected to league waivers and will be free to search for a depth role if he goes unclaimed.
Walford signed a contract with the Colts on Wednesday.
The 2015 third-round pick resurfaces in Indianapolis after failing to make the Jets' 53-man roster out of training camp. The Colts just lost Jack Doyle to a season-ending kidney injury, and each of their other four tight ends shows up on the Week 13 injury report. Regardless, it's difficult to imagine a scenario in which Walford becomes a significant part of the Colts' passing game.
Walford turned three targets into two catches for 25 yards in Thursday's 15-13 preseason loss to the Redskins.
While Walford hasn't exactly turned heads, he's provided a steady presence at the tight end position. He led all Jets tight ends in receiving yards Thursday and was third on the team overall. Jordan Leggett and Chris Herndon were viewed as New York's two most exciting tight end options, but neither has a catch yet this preseason.
Walford opened the preseason by hauling in both of his targets for 27 yards in Friday's 17-0 win over Atlanta.
Walford didn't get many chances to shine, but he was effective when called upon. The former Raider remains in the mix in New York's wide open tight end competition, though his plausible range of outcomes includes everything from a major role to not making the roster at all.
Darryl Slater of NJ.com views Walford as a candidate to be omitted from the Jets' final 53-man roster this fall.
Plenty can happen between now and cut-downs, but Walford isn't guaranteed anything with the Jets, despite the void at tight end created by the departure of Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Jordan Leggett (knee) and Chris Herndon (knee) are currently the co-favorites to to land the starting job.
Walford could be in jeopardy of losing his job, Andy Vasquez of northjersey.com reports.
Walford has a slight edge over recent draftee Chris Herndon and Eric Tomlinson for the starting tight end spot in New York. Jordan Leggett could also rise in the ranks should he impress during training camp, but for the time being it looks like this could be a three-man race. Walford's experience could be a key factor during the evaluation process, but Herndon seems likely to put up a good fight, especially if the Jets place a large emphasis of their evaluation on receiving skills.
The Jets claimed Walford off waivers Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Taking advantage of a modest role in the Raiders offense, the 2015 third-round selection accounted for 61 catches (on 102 targets) for 688 yards and six touchdowns in his first two pro seasons. Upon the arrival of Jared Cook last year, though, Walford's usage dwindled to 12.8 percent of the offensive snaps, which translated to just nine receptions for 80 yards and no TDs. Walford's new reality could result in a rebound due to the dearth of talent at TE for the Jets. With Austin Seferian-Jenkins out of the picture, Walford will only have to compete against Eric Tomlinson, Jordan Leggett and Neal Sterling, albeit with more help likely coming after the NFL Draft.
The Raiders are releasing Walford (concussion, neck), Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
A 2015 third-round pick, Walford caught 61 of 103 targets for 688 yards and six touchdowns over his first two seasons, but he then had just nine receptions in 13 games last year before landing on injured reserve due to a concussion. The transaction suggests he passed a physical, and he should find an opportunity to compete for a backup job elsewhere. Jared Cook is locked in as the top tight end in Oakland.
Walford (concussion, neck) was placed on injured reserve by the Raiders on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Walford had yet to practice since sustaining the concussion in Week 14, so this move isn't overly surprising as the regular season draws to a close. Pharaoh Brown has joined the 53-man roster from the practice squad and should serve as the Raiders' No. 3 tight end.
Walford (concussion) did not participate at Raiders' practice Friday.
Walford has not practiced since sustaining the concussion against the Chiefs in Week 14. The 26-year doesn't seem likely to be available against the Eagles on Monday even if he's able to practice Saturday, given his lack of practice reps over the last two weeks.
Walford (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.
Walford suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs and didn't practice this week. The 26-year-old will hope to clear the concussion protocol and make a return to action Week 16 against the Eagles.
Walford (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday.
Walford was diagnosed with a concussion following the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs. He'll need to clear the league's concussion protocol before being deemed ready to play Sunday against the Cowboys, but even if he suits up, Walford won't have a major role in the team's passing attack.
