Raiders' Alex Ellis: Finds new home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis agreed to terms on a contact with the Raiders on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Ellis was cut by the Patriots this offseason after he failed to play a snap with the team during the 2020 season. The Tennessee product has logged just six offensive snaps the past two seasons, so he's not likely to hold any fantasy relevancy heading into the 2021 campaign.

Alex Ellis: Cut by Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

New England cut Ellis on Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Ellis was let go alongside Darius Kilgo to make room for Xavier Williams and Paul Quessenberry on the roster. He'll look for a chance to latch on in a depth capacity elsewhere.

Patriots' Alex Ellis: Signed by New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis inked a contract with the Patriots on Monday, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.

The Patriots were busy signing depth options, as both he and Paul Butler were added to the tight end room Monday. Ellis saw just six offensive snaps in three games with Philadelphia in 2019, so he doesn't seem likely to make a fantasy impact in the upcoming season.

Alex Ellis: Let go by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis has been cut by the Eagles, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Ellis was let go in order to make room on the roster for Jason Peters. While Ellis played three games with the Eagles last season, he only saw six offensive snaps and did not receive a target. The 27-year-old will now try to find a new opportunity.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Inks deal for 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Ellis played three games with the Eagles this season but logged just six offensive snaps and no targets. He suffered a knee injury in Week 4 and was subsequently let go before returning to the team's practice squad in December. The tight end will aim to carve out a run-blocking role in 2020.

Alex Ellis: Joins Eagles' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles signed Ellis to their practice squad Monday, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

Ellis suited up for three games with the Eagles earlier this season before getting placed on injured reserve. It subsequently took him and the team just a week to reach an injury settlement. He now is back on the practice squad and will look to help provide tight end depth if ultimately needed.

Alex Ellis: Waived off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (knee) reached an injury settlement with the Eagles on Tuesday.

Ellis was waived/injured by the team last week, but reverted to IR after going unclaimed. He will now be free to look for a new opportunity once his health allows it.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Moved to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (knee) reverted to injured reserve Monday, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The Eagles cut Ellis with an injury tag last Friday, and he now returns to IR after going unclaimed on waivers. Barring an injury settlement, he'll remain on IR for the rest of the season.

Alex Ellis: Hits waivers with injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles waived/injured Ellis (knee) on Friday.

Ellis' injury surfaced Wednesday, and the Eagles will open up a roster spot for cornerback depth by waiving Ellis. If he clears waivers, Ellis will revert to the Eagles' injured reserve where he'll remain unless an injury settlement is reached.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Ellis sustained the knee injury during a Week 4 win in Green Bay and did not practice this week. The Eagles will roll with Zach Ertz and Dalls Goedert as their only two tight ends in Week 5.

October 3, 2019 04:20 PM
Eagles' Alex Ellis: Not practicing again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (knee) did not practice Thursday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Ellis hasn't practiced since suffering a knee injury during Week 4's win over the Packers. He appears on track to miss Sunday's tilt against the Jets, in which case the Eagles will roll with only two healthy tight ends in Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Nursing knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Ellis played five offensive snaps and 16 snaps on special teams in Thursday's win over the Packers and apparently suffered the knee injury. The severity remains unclear, but if the 26-year-old is unable to advance to full participation by Friday, he'll likely receive an injury designation.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Tuesday.

This will be Ellis' second stint on the active roster this season, as he was promoted prior to the season opener and sent back down shortly after. The likely reasoning behind the 26-year-old's promotion is to provide depth to the tight end unit as Dallas Goedert battles a calf injury.

Alex Ellis: Waived by Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was waived by the Eagles on Tuesday, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Ellis was promoted from the Eagles' practice squad Friday but only ended up spending a couple days on the 52-man roster. The 26-year-old is a candidate to rejoin the practice squad, assuming he clears waivers.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Friday.

Ellis originally signed with the Eagles in early August before winding up on the practice squad following final cuts. He'll now join the active roster again and will serve as a depth option at tight end Week 1.

August 2, 2019 09:16 PM
Eagles' Alex Ellis: Signs with Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis signed a contract with the Eagles on Friday, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Ellis spent most of the 2018 season on Kansas City's injured reserve with an undisclosed injury, although he appears to be healthy now. With five other tight ends on Philadelphia's roster, the 26-year-old will likely have trouble sticking when it's time to make cuts. The Eagles had a roster spot available after waiving linebacker Joey Alfieri.

Chiefs' Alex Ellis: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (undisclosed) cleared waivers and has reverted to injured reserve, per NFL Communications.

Ellis saw just 11 total snaps in the first two weeks after seizing a 53-man roster spot out of camp, but he will now miss the remainder of 2018, barring an injury settlement. If that's the case, the second-year tight end will take aim at rejoining the mix for the 2019 season.

October 2, 2018 07:28 PM
Alex Ellis: Let go Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (undisclosed) was waived/injured by the Chiefs on Tuesday.

The second-year tight end made the 53-man roster out of camp and began the year as the team's No. 2 tight end, though he ended his time with the Chiefs without a catch while playing a total of just 11 offensive snaps. Ellis -- who was inactive for Monday's game against the Broncos -- caught three passes for 11 yards in 2017 for the Jaguars.

Chiefs' Alex Ellis: Makes 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis has earned a spot on the Chiefs' 53-man roster, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Ellis will serve as the team's No. 2 tight end for the opener against the Chargers with Demetrius Harris suspended for the contest. It seems likely he will remain on the roster even when Harris gets back, but he will likely be a depth option at the position behind Harris and star tight end Travis Kelce.

Chiefs' Alex Ellis: Claimed by Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was claimed off waivers by the Chiefs on Tuesday, Pete Sweeney of 610 Sports Radio reports.

Ellis, who was released by the Saints on Monday, will provide some additional depth at the tight end position that sports only a couple of players guaranteed a spot in Travis Kelce and Demetrius Harris. Ellis signed a future/reserve deal with the Saints prior to last season after appearing in six games for the Jaguars as a rookie in 2016 both on offense and special teams and will attempt to reprise that role with the Chiefs.
