by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Griffin made his first NFL appearance since 2017 when he was called up for four games this year. The Air Force product totaled 91 targetless snaps on offense in that stretch. The 26-year-old will aim to secure a depth role in 2021.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin cleared waivers Tuesday and signed with the Saints' practice squad, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

The Saints will move forward with Jared Cook as the clear No. 1 tight end, while Adam Trautman and Josh Hill rotate in. Griffin will serve on the Saints' scout team for the time being.

Garrett Griffin: Waived by New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saints' Garrett Griffin: Signs to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints signed Griffin to the 53-man roster Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

With Josh Hill (concussion) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons and Taysom Hill expected to start under center, Griffin will provide the Saints flexibility at tight end. He's played in two games with the team this year, receiving no targets over 40 snaps on offense, and he'll slot in as the No. 3 tight end behind Jared Cook and Adam Trautman.

Garrett Griffin: Returns to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin reverted to the Saints' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Griffin was promoted to the active roster as an extra player for Monday's win over the Chargers, and he ended up playing 18 snaps on offense and 18 snaps on special teams. The 26-year-old is without a catch in his two appearances this year.

Saints' Garrett Griffin: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin was elevated to the Saints' active roster from the practice squad Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The 26-year-old was elevated from the practice squad as an extra player last week and will do so again Monday against the Chargers. Griffin wasn't targeted in 22 offensive snaps Week 4, and he could have a similar role against Los Angeles if Jared Cook (groin), who's considered questionable, ends up being unavailable.

Garrett Griffin: Shifts back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin reverted to the practice squad Monday, according to the NFL transactions page.

Griffin was elevated to the active roster in the absence of Jared Cook (groin) for the team's Week 4 matchup against the Lions. He was on the field for 22 of the team's offensive snaps but failed to record a target. If Cook remains out, Griffin could return to the active roster Week 5 against the Chargers.

Saints' Garrett Griffin: Elevates from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints elevated Griffin to the active roster Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Jared Cook (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Lions, so Griffin will serve as the No. 3 tight end behind Adam Trautman and Josh Hill. He'll likely revert to the practice squad following the game.

Garrett Griffin: Couldn't make final roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin was waived Saturday by the Saints, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

It was always going to be a tough path for Griffin to earn a roster spot, particularly after the team selected Adam Trautman in the third round. Griffin, who has spent a good deal of time on the team's practice squad, could be in line to do so again to begin 2020.

Saints' Garrett Griffin: Tough path to roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (undisclosed) may have a tough time cracking the Saints' season-opening roster, Larry Holder of The Athletic reports.

Jared Cook remains the starter at tight end and Josh Hill hasn't missed a game since 2016, and New Orleans also added Adam Trautman in the third round of April's draft. Griffin spent last season on injured reserve and hasn't seen game action since 2017.

August 27, 2019 01:36 AM
Saints' Garrett Griffin: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports.

Griffin ended last season on the Saints' 53-man roster and recorded one reception for four yards in three contests. He also recorded his first NFL touchdown in the NFC Championship Game. He will now look to make a full recovery as his focus shifts to the 2020 season.

January 30, 2019 03:48 PM
Saints' Garrett Griffin: Signed through 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin is under contract with the Saints through 2020, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Undrafted back in 2016, the 24-year-old tight end spent most of the past three seasons on the New Orleans practice squad, making just three regular-season appearances in the process. He was called up to the 53-man roster for the playoffs, ultimately handling a key role in the NFC Championship Game after Ben Watson (illness) was ruled out and Josh Hill suffered a concussion. Griffin had a short touchdown catch in the loss, potentially setting the stage to compete for a larger role in 2019. Hill and Dan Arnold both remain under contract, while the 38-year-old Watson can become an unrestricted free agent if he doesn't retire. It's possible the Saints make a significant investment at tight end in the offseason as opposed to continuing their reliance on a committee of mediocre players to fill snaps at the position.

Saints' Garrett Griffin: Signs with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin signed a contract with the Saints on Saturday, Brett Martel of the Associated Press reports.

Griffin spent training camp with the Saints and now joins the 53-man roster for a potential playoff run. The 24-year-old had one reception for four yards in three games with New Orleans in 2017 and is unlikely to factor into the passing game.

August 3, 2018 02:40 PM
Saints' Garrett Griffin: Participating in training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (foot) is participating in training camp, Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Griffin is looking good from a physical standpoint after finishing the season on injured reserve with a foot injury. The second-year Air Force product is competing for a depth role at tight end.

Saints' Garrett Griffin: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin was placed on injured reserve by the Saints on Wednesday, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Griffin has been battling the foot injury since mid-December but was clear of an injury designation for Week 17. The 23-year-old joined the Saints prior to Week 13, and totaled one reception for four yards in three games with the team.

December 30, 2017 11:48 PM
Saints' Garrett Griffin: Ready for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (foot) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Griffin was a limited participant in practice this week but the team apparently saw enough to not utilize the questionable tag. The 23-year-old should serve as the Saints' No. 2 tight end Sunday with Michael Hoomanawanui ruled out with a concussion.

December 22, 2017 07:28 PM
Saints' Garrett Griffin: Won't play Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (foot) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Griffin started off the week not practicing and didn't make enough progress to warrant the questionable tag. The Saints re-signed John Phillips to serve as Josh Hill's backup tight end Sunday, considering Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion) has also been ruled out.

December 21, 2017 05:56 PM
Saints' Garrett Griffin: Unable to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffen didn't practice Wednesday due to a foot injury.

Griffin played 20 of 67 snaps in Sunday's 31-19 win over the Jets but apparently suffered a foot injury at some point. The Saints' tight ends are hurting at the moment, as veteran Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion) also sat out Wednesday, while starter Josh Hill (shoulder) was a limited participant.
