by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert appeared in eight games with the Jaguars last season, securing three of four targets for 16 yards. He'll now compete to earn a similar depth role for Denver.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert reverted to Jacksonville's practice squad after suiting up for Sunday's game against the Chargers, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Jaguars' Eric Saubert: Elevates to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars elevated Saubert to the active roster Saturday.

Tyler Eifert (neck) will sit out Sunday's game versus the Chargers, so Saubert will rise up and add depth at tight end. The 2017 fifth-round pick hasn't suited up in a game since last season, when he played two games with Chicago and caught two passes for 21 yards.

Eric Saubert: Finds new home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert agreed to join the Jaguars' practice squad Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Saubert was let go by the Bears on Wednesday to make room on the 53-man roster, but he didn't have to wait long to find a new team. The 26-year-old caught just two passes for 21 yards across two appearances for the Bears in 2019.

Eric Saubert: Waived by Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert was waived by Chicago on Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Saubert was one of five tight ends to originally make the 53-man roster, but he was inactive in Week 1 and is now getting waived by the Bears. Kicker Cairo Santos is taking the roster spot vacated by Saubert.

Bears' Eric Saubert: Not playing in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game in Detroit.

One of five tight ends the Bears kept on the 53-man roster to begin the season, Saubert's status as a healthy inactive confirms he's the No. 5 option on the depth chart. Even if he moves up in the pecking order as the season unfolds, Saubert will likely be limited mostly to a blocking role.

Bears' Eric Saubert: Activated off COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert was cleared from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

It appears Saubert never tested positive for COVID-19, but was rather potentially exposed to it. Now that he's been cleared, he'll enter camp looking to make an impression, as the Bears are already relatively deep at tight end.

Bears' Eric Saubert: Moved to COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears placed Saubert (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The transaction indicates that Saubert has either tested positive for COVID-19 or is quarantining after coming into close contact with someone who has. He's fighting for a roster spot in Chicago's overflowing tight-end room.

Bears' Eric Saubert: Targeted once
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert caught a 10-yard pass in the Bears' 21-19 victory over the Vikings in Week 17, and he finished the season with two receptions for 21 yards in two games.

With the Bears having suffered numerous injuries at tight end, Saubert was able to earn playing time at the end of the year, though his fantasy impact was minimal. He's signed through next season, though he'll likely be battling for a roster spot during training camp.

Bears' Eric Saubert: Posts sixth reception of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saubert caught one pass for 11 yards in the Bears' 26-3 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Saubert hauled in one of two targets, and he now has 59 yards in six games this season. He won't be a recommended fantasy option in Week 17 against the Vikings.

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 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.
