Wes Saxton: Joins Seattle's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saxton was signed to the Seahawks' practice squad Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

With three tight ends already on IR, and Jacob Hollister (foot) and Luke Willson (hamstring) banged up, Tyrone Swoopes is currently the only healthy option at the position the Seahawks have on the roster. Saxton provides depth in case of an emergency after seeing some time with the team in training camp.

Wes Saxton: Let go by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks waived Saxton on Saturday, John Boyle of the teams official site reports.

Saxton was a longshot to make the roster initially, considering when he signed the team was facing a laundry list of injuries and was added for depth. Now that he's done in Seattle, the South Alabama product could get claimed off waivers as early as Sunday, but he is more likely a practice squad candidate.

Seahawks' Wes Saxton: Joins Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saxton signed a contract with the Seahawks on Saturday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Saxton joins a crowded Seattle tight end room and faces long odds to make the 53-man roster unless Will Dissly (kneecap), Ed Dickson (knee) and Jacob Hollister (groin) are unable to get healthy. He'll work to stand out during the preseason.

Wes Saxton: Cut by San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saxton was cut by the 49ers on Friday, the team's official site reports.

Saxton's release comes as no surprise with George Kittle (shoulder) and Garrett Celek at the top of the depth chart at tight end.

49ers' Wes Saxton: Signs with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saxton signed a contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.

Saxton, who went undrafted out of South Alabama in 2015, has appeared in just one regular-season contest throughout his career in the league. The 49ers are pretty much set at tight end with George Kittle and Garrett Celek at the top of the depth chart, so Saxton will be a longshot to make the 53-man roster.

Wes Saxton: Waived by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saxton was waived by the Lions on Thursday.

Saxton's time with the Lions will essentially be over before it even started, as the team waived him exactly 10 days after his signing to make room for the acquisition of fellow tight end Sean McGrath. Saxton will now look to catch on elsewhere, though a practice squad seems to be the most likely destination for the fourth-year player.

Lions' Wes Saxton: Signs with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saxton signed a contract with the Lions on Monday, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports.

An undrafted free agent back in 2015, Saxton has struggled to find his niche in the NFL, bouncing around between practice squads much of the time. His lone action in the regular season came in 2015 with the Jets, though he didn't reel in a catch during that contest. The 6-foot-4, 235-pound tight end will look to impress throughout minicamp and potentially training camp if he remains on the roster for that long, but he'll have a tough time making the final roster.

Bills' Wes Saxton: Signs with Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saxton was signed Wednesday with the Bills, Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com reports.

Saxton, who participated in a 10-player workout for the Bills on Tuesday, will provide the offense with additional size at tight end, as the South Alabama product checks in at 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds. The 23-year-old has previously spent time on the Jets' practice squad, but has yet to record a single catch in the NFL. The Bills don't have any proven options at tight end beyond Charles Clay, so even though Saxton will be a long shot to make the roster, he should at least receive a long look during training camp.

Wes Saxton: Cut by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets let Saxton go on Saturday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Saxton was competing for a backup role at tight end with the Jets. Both he and Zach Sudfeld have been released by the team, which leaves Jace Amaro and Brandon Bostick to back up Kellen Davis. Saxton recorded 24 yards on three receptions in the team's final preseason game.

Jets' Wes Saxton: Signed to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saxton was signed to the practice squad Wednesday.

If Jeff Cumberland or Kellen Davis are forced to miss time, Saxton would likely be moved from the practice squad to the active roster. He played 12 snaps in Week 4, but was previously removed from the active roster when Sheldon Richardson was reinstated from suspension.

The Jets have added tight end Wes Saxton to their active roster.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets have added tight end Wes Saxton to their active roster.

With Jeff Cumberland out this week, Saxton will give the Jets a needed backup TE option behind Kellen Davis for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Jets coach Todd Bowles doesn't think tight end Jeff Cumberland (concussion) will play Sunday against the Dolphins.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets coach Todd Bowles doesn't think tight end Jeff Cumberland (concussion) will play Sunday against the Dolphins.

Cumberland could be trending toward an official doubtful or out designation later in the week. With Kellen Davis currently the team's only healthy tight end, it wouldn't surprise us if the Jets signed another tight end or promoted Wes Saxton from their practice squad.

There was no word on what type of injury the preseason All-Sun Belt tight end sustained, but he should be good to go for Week 2 lineups.
