Hakeem Valles: Announces retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valles announced his retirement from football via his personal Instagram account Thursday

An undrafted free agent out of Monmouth in 2016, Valles didn't start playing tight end until halfway through college and probably faced a steep learning curve compared to other rookies at his position. He ultimately appeared in 15 games for the Lions and Cardinals over the last three seasons, but was only targeted five total times in the passing game and will go down with only two catches for 11 yards to his name.

Hakeem Valles: Lands on practice squad injury list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valles was placed on the Giants' practice squad injury list with an undisclosed injury.

At the current moment, it's unclear what led to Valles' placement on the injury list. Valles was brought onto the team's practice squad in late November and has yet to be promoted to the active roster. He'll have to wait until next season for another shot.

Hakeem Valles: Added to Giants' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valles was signed to the Giants' practice squad Tuesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

The Monmouth product suited up in three games for Detroit this season and caught two of three targets for 11 yards. With Evan Engram nursing a hamstring injury, Valles could provide depth at the tight end position for the Giants.

Hakeem Valles: Drops to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions waived Valles on Saturday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Valles suited up three games for the Lions this season, catching two of three targets for 11 yards. His ceiling is as a run-blocking tight end without fantasy relevance at this time.

Lions' Hakeem Valles: Draws two targets in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valles caught one of two targets for five yards during Monday's 48-17 loss to the Jets.

Valles ultimately drew the second-most snaps of all Lions tight ends while seeing the most targets in the passing game. However, it's hard to get excited about his long-term outlook given the committee approach Detroit is taking to the position.
