Walford played 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 Dolphins' tight end room which 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 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 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 was not active for a single game with the team. Walford will now be subjected to league waivers, and be free to search for a depth role if he goes unclaimed.
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 passing game.
