Eagles' Will Tye: Inks deal with Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye signed a reserve/future contract with the Eagles on Monday.

Tye signed to the Eagles' practice squad in November after being waived by the Patriots with an injury settlement prior to Week 1. The tight end will have a chance to impress during the 2019 offseason program and training camp, but may have a hard time cracking Philadelphia's 53-man roster with Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert and Richard Rodgers all occupying the depth chart.

Will Tye: Joins Eagles' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles signed Tye to their practice squad Tuesday.

Tye was waived by the Patriots with an injury settlement in early September. The 27-year-old tight end has 94 receptions for 897 yards and four touchdowns in 32 career games. The Eagles are pretty set at the tight end position with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, though it doesn't hurt to have an insurance policy waiting on the practice squad.

Will Tye: Reaches injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots waived Tye (undisclosed) off injured reserve with an injury settlement Thursday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Tye cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve at the start of September. The 26-year-old had 90 receptions for 859 yards in his first two years with the Giants, but he's been unable to find any footing with the Jets and Patriots over the last two seasons.

Patriots' Will Tye: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye (undisclosed) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.

While the nature of Tye's injury isn't clear, the tight end is now set to spend the 2018 campaign on IR unless he agrees to an injury settlement.

Patriots' Will Tye: Waived/injured by Pats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye (undisclosed) was waived/injured by the Patriots on Sunday, Doug Kyed of reports.

Tye signed a reserve/future contract with the Patriots back in February, but it looks like an injury ultimately cost the tight end a chance at a final roster spot. He will revert to the Patriots' injured reserve list once he clears waivers.

Patriots' Will Tye: Inks deal with Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye signed a reserve/future contract with the Patriots on Tuesday, Mikes Reiss of reports.

Tye joined the Patriots' practice squad after being released by the Jets in early October. He has proven to be a contributing tight end, recording back-to-back 40-plus reception seasons with the Giants starting in 2015. All the tight ends on New England's roster are under contract through next season, so Tye will need to separate himself from the pack this offseason if he hopes to make the 53-man roster.

Will Tye: Added to Patriots' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye has joined the Patriots' practice squad, Mike Reiss of reports.

Tye gives the Patriots some added tight end depth behind Rob Gronkowski, Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister. The 25-yeard-old, who caught 48 passes for 395 yards and a TD for the Giants last season, started the 2017 campaign with the Jets, but was waived earlier this month after catching three passes for 48 yards in three contests with the team.

Will Tye: Waived by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye was waived by the Jets on Tuesday.

Tye managed four receptions in three games for the Jets after being claimed off waivers in September. He'll now look to join a team in need of tight end depth.

Jets' Will Tye: Inactive for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 4 tilt versus the Jaguars, the Jets' official site reports.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins' return from suspension in Week 3 was modestly productive and the returning Eric Tomlinson (ankle) will be deployed as his backup versus Jacksonville, leaving Tye in street clothes for the first time in his young Jets tenure.

Jets' Will Tye: Ready for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

With Eric Tomlinson (ankle) and Jordan Leggett (knee) both inactive, Tye will slot in as the No. 2 tight end for the Jets. Top tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is coming back from suspension this week, but he's apparently not in ideal shape, Rich Cimini of reports. Because of this, Tye may receive more snaps than normal as the team eases Seferian-Jenkins back into game action. However, given the Jets' lackluster offense, don't expect Tye to suddenly vault into fantasy relevance.

Jets' Will Tye: Listed as questionable this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Meanwhile, Eric Tomlinson is out and Jordan Leggett is doubtful, but working in the Jets' favor Sunday is that fellow TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins is back in the fold. Tye has logged four catches (on six targets) for 38 yards through the team's first two games.

Jets' Will Tye: Limited to four yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye caught one of three targets for four yards in Sunday's 45-20 loss to Oakland.

With the Jets' tight end room in shambles, Tye saw the field for 42 of the Jets' 56 offensive plays on Sunday. The quality of the Jets' offense is surely a factor, but Tye never really established himself with the Giants either. His starting time is likely short-lived as Austin Seferian-Jenkins is due back this week.

Jets' Will Tye: Could start against Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Eric Tomlinson (elbow) and Jordan Leggett (knee) ruled out, Tye and Neal Sterling are left as the healthy tight ends for Sunday's game in Oakland, Dennis Waszak Jr. of The Associated Press reports.

Tye could have an opportunity to start and play nearly every snap, but he had plenty of similar chances with the Giants and never took advantage. His time in a key role likely will be short lived, as Austin Seferian-Jenkins (suspension) is eligible to return Week 3.

Jets' Will Tye: Catches three passes in loss to Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye caught all three of his targets for 34 yards during Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Eric Tomlinson got the start, but Tye finished with more targets, catches and yards. The Jets have struggled to use their tight ends in the passing game over the past few years, and while Tye's opening-day performance was decent, it was hardly putting him on many fantasy radars. He will get one more chance to show what he can do before being pushed down the depth chart in Week 3 when Austin Seferian-Jenkins returns from suspension.

Jets' Will Tye: Claimed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets have claimed Tye off waivers from the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Tye will give the Jets some useful depth at tight end, with Austin Seferian-Jenkins suspended for the first two games of the 2017 season. He joins an unproven group at the position, which also includes Eric Tomlinson, Jordan Leggett and Jordan Vander Laan. It's therefore plausible that Tye could quickly carve out a role with the Jets once he's up to speed with the team's offense.

Will Tye: Let go by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants opted to waive Tye on Saturday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Tye was vying for a tight end role with the club, but ultimately lost the competition. He started 10 games and caught 48 passes for the team last season, and figures to be a prime candidate to be claimed off waivers by another team Sunday.

Giants' Will Tye: May have to earn spot on roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye may have to fight for a roster spot after the Giants selected Evan Engram in the first round of the draft,'s James Kratch reports.

The Giants' decision to select a tight end in the opening round came as no surprise, as Tye was one of the league's least productive starters at his position last season, hauling in 48 of 70 targets for only 395 yards (8.2 yards per catch) and a touchdown in 16 games (10 starts). The team previously signed hybrid fullback/tight end Rhett Ellison, who along with Engram is a lock to make the final roster. Tye may thus find himself competing with Matt Lacosse (knee) and 2016 sixth-rounder Jerell Adams for what likely would be one or two roster spots. Tye re-signed on a modest one-year, $615,000 contract in February.

Giants' Will Tye: Re-ups with Giants on one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye re-signed with the Giants on Tuesday on a one-year, $615,000 contract, Ralph Vacchiano of reports.

Tye, the Giants' starting tight end a season ago, was one of three exclusive rights free agents that the team re-signed. The 25-year-old hauled in 48 passes for 395 yards and a touchdown last season and barring any offseason additions at the position, Tye looks positioned to open 2017 as a starter. The Giants reportedly have no intention of re-signing former starter Larry Donnell, who is an unrestricted free agent.

Giants' Will Tye: Four receptions in wild-card loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye secured four of seven targets for 66 yards in Sunday's 38-13 wild-card loss to the Packers.

The 25-year-old tight end gained a large chunk of his yardage on a 51-yard rumble on a catch over the middle in the second quarter, the longest reception of his career. The athletic Tye took over the top tight end job from incumbent Larry Donnell in 2016 and established a new career high in receptions (48) in the process. Given his success, he heads into the offseason as the clear-cut top option at the position for the Giants.

Giants' Will Tye: Tallies four catches in win over Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tye was targeted five times in Sunday's win over Washington, converting them into four catches for 47 yards.

Despite starter-level snaps, Tye has seldom been much of a threat this season, being held to three catches or less in 10 games and 25 yards or less 11 times. He heads into the playoffs on a comparative high note, with 13 catches in his last three games. Look for the Giants to try to keep him going as the Packers were one of just eight teams this season to surrender more than 1,000 yards to tight ends.
