Bears' Eric Saubert: Joins Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert signed a contract with the Bears on Saturday.

Saubert will provide depth to a Bears tight end depth chart that just saw Adam Shaheen (foot) join Trey Burton (calf) on injured reserve. Saubert is expected to fall behind J.P. Holtz, Jesper Horsted and Bradley Sowell in terms of playing time.

Eric Saubert: Let go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots cut Saubert on Saturday.

Saubert was traded to the Patriots via the Falcons this offseason for a seventh-round pick, but failed to stick with the team. He will look to latch on with another team elsewhere to earn a depth role.

Patriots' Eric Saubert: Traded to Pats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert has been traded to the Patriots from the Falcons for a conditional seventh-round pick, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

A 2017 fifth-round pick by the Falcons, Saubert has caught five passes for 48 yards in 30 NFL games. He'll join a Patriots team that's battling injuries at tight end, but the minimal compensation suggests Saubert will face a difficult path to earning a spot on the 53-man roster.

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Five receptions in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert tallied 48 yards on five receptions while playing in 16 games in 2018.

Although Saubert appeared in all 16 games for Atlanta, he was primarily a special-teams player. He'll figure to see a similar role in 2019, barring he improves as a pass catcher and is able to move up the team's tight-end depth chart.

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Two catches in loss to Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert registered two receptions for 15 yards during Sunday's 34-20 loss to Green Bay.

With Logan Paulsen (knee/ankle) ruled out, Saubert garnered three of nine tight end targets, establishing a career-high with two receptions against Green Bay's No. 7 pass defense (225.0 yards allowed per game). Saubert has fielded 14.1 percent of Atlanta's offensive snaps this season, but that figure stands to increase substantially should Paulsen remain on the shelf for an extended period of time. Still searching for his first touchdown as a pro, Week 15 doesn't present much reason for optimism going up against an Arizona defense that's allowed just three tight end touchdowns all year (tied for fourth fewest).

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Records catch in loss to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert caught one of his two targets, compiling 17 yards during Sunday's 28-16 loss to the Browns.

The second-year tight end was targeted just once between Week 1 and Week 4, but he's become more involved in the Falcons passing attack of late, with five of his six targets (and all three of his receptions this season) coming in Atlanta's past five games. Quarterback Matt Ryan looked to Saubert in the back of the end zone in a critical fourth-and-goal situation, trailing the Browns by 18 points early in the fourth quarter. Saubert was unable to haul in the pass, as he remains scoreless over the first 23 games of the NFL career. Upcoming in Week 11 is a matchup against a Cowboys defense that's allowed 53 tight end receptions this season (tied for fifth-most).

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Leads Falcons tight ends in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert paced Atlanta tight ends with two catches for 15 receiving yards in a 17-0 defeat to the Jets on Friday.

Though no Falcons tight end stood out in what proved to be a disastrous first showing for the offense as a whole -- there was a combined four receptions for 29 yards between tight ends Saubert, Austin Hooper and Logan Paulsen -- the second-year man from Drake was the best of the bunch. Saubert hauled in both of his targets on the night, including a 10-yard reception from Matt Schaub that provided Atlanta with its only first down of the first half. He also provided some value on special teams, registering a tackle on former Falcon Andre Roberts during a punt return in the first quarter.

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Building momentum in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert has been impressing the Falcons coaching staff in training camp to this point, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Head coach Dan Quinn noted Saubert as one player whom he will focus on during Atlanta's preseason opener against the Jets, given the level of growth that the young tight end has exhibited from his first year in the league to his second. "I'm certainly looking to see how (Saubert) looks. He's somebody who has our attention at tight end," Quinn said after practice Wednesday. "He's really kind of turning into the pass-catching tight end that I hoped we'd see." Saubert has been listed as the No. 3 option at the position behind Austin Hooper and Logan Paulsen on the team's first published depth chart of the season.

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Ruled out for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said Saubert (back) won't play in Thursday's game against the Saints, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

The back issue prevented Saubert from practicing at any point this week and will force his first absence of the 2017 campaign. Exclusively a blocking tight end and special-teams contributor, Saubert doesn't offer any appeal in the fantasy realm.

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Listed as non-participant Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert (back) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated practice report.

The exact nature of Saubert's issue is unclear, but the Falcons did not actually take the practice field Monday, so the report is just an estimation. However, being listed as a DNP on a short week surely isn't an encouraging sign for the tight end's status heading into Thursday's bout with the Saints.

Falcons' Eric Saubert: Heading to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons selected Saubert in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 174th overall.

Saubert, a small school product out of Drake, has some intriguing traits that should translate to the NFL. He checks in at 6-foot-5 with big hands and he posted a strong 121-inch broad jump at the Combine. Like any small school player, there will be a learning curve for Saubert, but he has reliable hands and the frame to hold up in the NFL.
