Saints' Jeff Heath: Inks deal with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath signed a deal to join the Saints' active roster Tuesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Heath was active for the Saints' Week 1 contest against the Packers but would have reverted back to the practice squad had he not been signed to the active roster. He played primarily on special teams in the opening contest, though he also earned nine defensive snaps and recorded two total tackles.

Saints' Jeff Heath: Returns to Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath was added to the Saints' practice squad Saturday and was elevated to the active roster ahead of Sunday's Week 1 matchup against the Packers, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Heath was released by the Saints on Friday, but he'll rejoin the team a day later. He'll provide depth in the secondary during Sunday's season opener before he attempts to make an impression with the team's practice squad.

Jeff Heath: Released by New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath was released by the Saints on Friday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Hill was initially included on the Saints' 53-man roster, but he'll be let go ahead of the season opener. The 30-year-old appeared in 13 games with the Raiders last year and totaled 37 tackles (28 solo) and three interceptions.

Saints' Jeff Heath: Lands with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints and Heath have come to terms on a contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Heath will compete for a role providing depth at safety for New Orleans. He led the Raiders in interceptions with three in 2020. The veteran spent his first seven seasons with Dallas.

Raiders' Jeff Heath: Will be released by Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath will be released by the Raiders on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The veteran safety will become a free agent after recording 37 tackles (28 solo), four passes defensed and three interceptions across 13 games last season. Heath was also named AFC Defensive Player of the Week in Week 10. If a team is looking to add a veteran presence to their secondary, he may not be unemployed for long.

Raiders' Jeff Heath: Receives return designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (concussion) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Heath is eligible to practice this week and could return for the season finale against the Broncos. Coming off a concussion, the Raiders may exercise caution for a game with no playoff implications. Health has averaged 29.5 snaps on defense per game this year, recording 35 tackles, three pass breakups and three interceptions.

Raiders' Jeff Heath: Moves to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Josh Dubow of the Associated Press reports.

The 29-year-old was already ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Colts, but he'll now be sidelined for at least the next three games. Heath will be eligible to return for Week 17, though it's unclear if he'll be healthy by that point. Erik Harris is expected to take over at free safety for the Raiders.

Raiders' Jeff Heath: Won't suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Colts, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Heath has been taking on more responsibility of late, playing more than 80 percent of the snaps on defense over the last two weeks. However, the veteran safety is working through the league's five-step concussion protocol. Erik Harris should step in and start at free safety in Heath's place.

Raiders' Jeff Heath: Stacks up 10 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath produced 10 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 43-6 loss to the Falcons.

Heath started at free safety over Erik Harris, who ended up playing just four snaps on defense. It's unclear if this will become the norm for Las Vegas. However, it certainly worked out well for Health, who generated a season high in tackles after recording just 17 stops through the first 10 games.

Raiders' Jeff Heath: Picks off Lock twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath notched one solo tackle, two defended passes and two interceptions during Sunday's 37-12 win over the Broncos.

Heath once again only filled a rotational role in Las Vegas' secondary (48 percent of snaps) Sunday, but he made the most of his opportunities en route to being named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network notes. The 29-year-old now has three interceptions on the year, but he'll be difficult to trust for IDP purposes against the Chiefs in Week 11 while playing a part-time role.

Raiders' Jeff Heath: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Heath was considered questionable with the hip injury but is ready to go for Week 9. The 29-year-old has mostly filled a rotational role in the secondary this season, though he did play every defensive snap Week 7 before suffering the injury last week.

Raiders' Jeff Heath: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (hip) is considered questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

After not practicing earlier in the week, Heath logged a limited workload at Friday's practice. He seems to be trending toward a true game-time decision. Dallin Leavitt could see some extra snaps providing depth at safety if Heath is ultimately unable to go.

Raiders' Jeff Heath: Exits with hip issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Browns with a hip injury.

Heath didn't have a tackle before exiting the contest with the injury. The 29-year-old has mostly played in a rotational role this season, though he played every defensive snap last week.

Raiders' Jeff Heath: Meshing with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) said practices in Las Vagas have been "a completely different dynamic when pads are on," Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

"The game seems to speed up. . . and we need a lot of practices in pads before we're ready to play," Heath said. Having recovered from January shoulder surgery, Heath is now able to turn his full attention toward getting up to speed in the Raiders' defensive scheme. The former Cowboy stands to compete for starting free safety reps with Erik Harris throughout training camp.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Hooking up with Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders and Heath agreed to terms of a contract Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Despite dealing with a shoulder injury that eventually required surgery in January, Heath totaled 63 tackles and seven pass breakups in 13 appearances last season. Throughout his seven-year career, he surpassed 60 tackles on four occasions, but he likely will have to compete with Erik Harris for a starting gig at strong safety in the Raiders' first campaign in Las Vegas.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Undergoes shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath underwent surgery on his left shoulder Friday, Todd Archer of reports.

Heath dealt with issues in both shoulders for most of the season, but he may be able to avoid a procedure on the right one. The 28-year-old is headed for free agency coming off an unimpressive 2019 campaign in which he had 63 tackles (41 solo) and zero interceptions or forced fumbles.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Unimpressive in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath finished the 2019 season with 63 tackles (41 solo) and seven passes defended in 13 games.

There has always been some question about whether the hard-hitting Heath is anything more than a glorified special-teams ace who is an awkward fit as a starting safety, and the 28-year-old gave doubters plenty of ammunition this year. While a shoulder injury limited him to a career low in games played and his lowest snap count (734) in three years, he also failed to record an interception for the first time since 2014 and allowed a rough 92.8 QB rating on the 39 pass attempts sent his way. An unrestricted free agent, Heath's tenure in Dallas could be over, although the team's likely cap crunch could invite a reunion at a discounted price.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Logs full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

There were whispers inside the Cowboys organization that Heath would require surgery to repair his shoulder injury, but that's no longer the case. The 28-year-old safety logged a full practice Thursday and all signs point to Heath taking the field for Sunday's matchup with the Rams.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: May require shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) may require surgery to repair his injured labrum, but he's still attempting to play and has participated in parts of practice this week, Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Heath has been out for the Cowboys past two games, both of which were losses. Darian Thompson has filled in for Heath at safety, and he should continue to do so if the latter is eventually unable to go in Week 15. A better feel for Heath's availability will likely be available later this week.

Cowboys' Jeff Heath: Won't suit up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heath (shoulder) is ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Bears, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

After not practicing all week, Heath will miss his second straight game as he tries shaking this lingering shoulder issue. Darian Thompson is expected to start at safety in Heath's place.
