Bears' Trey Burton: Not playing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burton won't play in Saturday's preseason game versus the Chiefs, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic Chicago reports.

Along with the bulk of the Bears' starting units, Burton won't take the field in preseason Week 3. His receiving ability was on full display in the team's previous exhibition Aug. 18, when he corralled four passes for 45 yards and a red-zone look that resulted in a touchdown. The usage wasn't much of a surprise due to the four-year, $32 million investment made in him in the offseason.

Bears' Trey Burton: Reaches paydirt Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burton caught four passes for 45 yards and a score during Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.

Burton was much more involved than he was last week, frequently lining up in the slot and ultimately drawing the most looks from starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky amongst all Bears pass catchers. This is something we might need to get used to as Trubisky continues his development within an offense devoid of many other established receiving options outside of offseason prize Allen Robinson. Burton will look to build upon his impressive performance during Chicago's third preseason game next Saturday against the Chiefs.

Bears' Trey Burton: Ticketed for key role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burton will play the "U" position in Bears coach Matt Nagy's offensive scheme, filling the spot Travis Kelce occupied in Kansas City last year, Adam Jahns of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Nagy wants his "U" tight end to be a focal point of the passing attack, which explains why the Bears handed a four-year, $32 million contract to a player with 63 receptions in 61 career games. Burton did have 122 yards and three touchdowns in the two contests Zach Ertz missed for the Eagles last season, providing a strong hint that he's ready for a larger role ahead of his fifth NFL campaign. Burton will have that opportunity in Chicago, though his lack of size by tight-end standards may sometimes keep him off the field on early downs -- whereas Kelce filled an every-down role for the Chiefs. The former Eagle doesn't have a strong reputation as a blocker and thus figures to lose some snaps to Adam Shaheen and Dion Sims when Chicago is in situations that call for a traditional in-line tight end. The Bears also need to create touches for running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen, as well as their offseason additions at wide receiver, Allen Robinson (knee) and Taylor Gabriel.

Eagles' Trey Burton: Joining Trubisky, Allen Robinson
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burton will sign a four-year, $32 million contract with the Bears when free agency opens Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This is a massive contract for an undrafted free agent (2014) who had 63 catches in 61 career regular-season games for the Eagles. Burton did impress in the two contests Zach Ertz missed last season, catching seven passes for 122 yards and a trio of scores. The 26-year-old tight end will now head to Chicago, where he and Allen Robinson will try to help Mitchell Trubisky make a Year 2 leap. Burton won't necessarily have an every-down role, but he at least figures to be a regular in passing situations. The Bears presumably hope 2017 second-round pick Adam Shaheen will develop into their top in-line/blocking tight end, with Burton serving as a flex receiver. Dion Sims may soon be released as the Bears retool under new head coach Matt Nagy, who coordinated a Chiefs offense in which Travis Kelce caught 83 passes for 1,038 yards and eight touchdowns in 15 games last season.

Eagles' Trey Burton: Drawing major interest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burton has a number of serious suitors, including the Lions, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Best known for throwing a touchdown pass to Nick Foles on "Philly Special" in the Super Bowl last month, Burton enjoyed an efficient regular season prior to the famous play, catching 23 of 30 targets for 248 yards and five touchdowns. He had seven receptions for 122 yards and three scores in the two games Zach Ertz missed, proving to be a more than capable replacement. In a free-agent class without any sure things at tight end, the 26-year-old Burton should be able to find starter money despite his lack of experience in a leading role. Detroit would be an ideal landing spot, assuming the Lions would trade or release Eric Ebron in a corresponding move. Burton figures to find a new team within the first few days of the free agency period.
