Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Quiet finish to season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson failed to bring in his only target during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday.

The second-year tight end unsurprisingly had a minimal role throughout the regular campaign, furnishing a 3-41-0 line on seven targets over 11 games with active status. Hudson ultimately was in uniform for all four of the Buccaneers' postseason contests, but Sunday's game was the first in which he saw a target. The athletic 26-year-old has shown some ability to get downfield during his time in Tampa Bay, but after playing 2020 on a one-year deal, it remains to be seen if Hudson will be brought back for further development next season with both Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate potentially set to return.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Healthy scratch for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Hudson didn't miss any practice time throughout the week, but the 26-year-old will sit out his fifth game of the regular season Sunday. The backup tight end has hauled in three of his seven targets for 41 yards during his second season with the Buccaneers. Last Saturday against Detroit he played a season-high 22 offensive snaps, but he's considered a healthy scratch to close out the regular-season slate.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Sees rare opportunity Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson brought in his only target for a 20-yard reception in the Buccaneers' 47-7 win over the Lions on Saturday.

The backup tight end logged a season-high 22 snaps from scrimmage in the blowout win, with the lopsided nature of the contest undoubtedly playing an integral part in his expanded opportunity. Hudson has just a 3-41 line over 11 games this season, but he could be in for some extra reps on offense again in Week 17 against the Falcons if coach Bruce Arians opts to give some of his first-unit players some rest.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Back with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (personal) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.

Hudson was ruled out of Week 12's game against the Chiefs following the passing of his father, but he's returned to the team. Hudson will return to his depth tight end role for Sunday's game against the Vikings, as he's compiled just two catches for 26 yards this campaign.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Out against Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (personal) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Hudson will miss a second straight game following the passing of his father. His next chance to play is following the team's Week 13 bye. Antony Auclair should see an uptick in usage again behind Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Out Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (personal) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Rams, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Hudson has been spending time with his family after his father passed away, so he won't be with the team for Week 11. Antony Auclair will serve as the depth tight end behind Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate on Monday.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Logs seven snaps in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson did not record any statistics across seven snaps from scrimmage in the Buccaneers' 46-23 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Hudson has now garnered active status in every game from Week 2 onward, although that's only led to a 2-21 line on a total of six targets. Coach Bruce Arians continues to roll with four active tight ends on most weeks, but both Hudson and position mate Antony Auclair are being used exclusively in a run-blocking capacity with both Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate healthy in front of them.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Catch-less night Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson failed to bring in his only target in the Buccaneers' 25-23 win over the Giants on Monday night.

The big tight end logged just three snaps from scrimmage, so his lack of statistics was unsurprising. Hudson is a distant third in the positional pecking order behind Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate, and the recent activation of Antony Auclair could also serve to frequently render Hudson a gameday inactive in coming weeks.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: One grab in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson brought in his only target for a 12-yard reception in the Buccaneers' 45-20 win over the Raiders on Sunday.

The towering tight end made an impressive grab on his one catch, his second of the season overall. Hudson played on just two snaps from scrimmage overall, however, although that was only 10 fewer than position mate Cameron Brate, the player directly above him on the depth chart. Hudson does have an intriguing size/athleticism combination, so it remains to be seen if he makes a legitimate run at Brate's No. 2 role at some point during the second half of the season.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: First catch of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson secured one of four targets for nine yards in the Buccaneers' 20-19 loss to the Bears on Thursday night.

Hudson assumed the No. 3 tight end role with O.J. Howard (Achilles) on injured reserve and Antony Auclair (calf) not yet ready to shed that designation. The second-year tight end saw a solid amount of targets for a player listed as third on the positional depth chart as Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Justin Watson (chest) were both sidelined, opening up extra opportunities for Tampa Bay's remaining healthy pass catchers. It remains to be seen if Hudson will be active on gamedays once Auclair is ready to suit up, as the latter is generally considered a superior blocker and also has similar ability to operate downfield.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Earns promotion from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers promoted Hudson from the practice squad to the active roster Wednesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Hudson's spot on the active roster was opened by the Buccaneers waiving Mazzi Wilkins on Monday. The Southern Arkansas product actually played three special-teams snaps during Sunday's win over the Panthers, by merit of the NFL's new practice squad "elevation" rule. He'll now be fully available as a depth option against the Broncos in Week 3.

Tanner Hudson: Odd TE out in Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers waived Hudson on Friday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Hudson spent the entire 2019 season on the Buccaneers' active roster, but he was pushed out of the tight-end room after the addition of Rob Gronkowski. If he clears waivers, the team plans on retaining him on the practice squad.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Tendered by Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers signed Hudson to a one-year contract Friday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Hudson was eligible to be tendered as an exclusive rights free agent, and the Buccaneers have opted to exercise exactly that option. With the team reportedly considering dealing O.J. Howard and/or Cameron Brate, Hudson could be in line for an increased role in 2020. He recorded two catches for 26 yards across nine contests last season.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Minimal action in '19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson finished the 2019 season with two receptions (five targets) for 26 yards over nine games.

The athletic tight end was one of the stars of preseason but, come the regular campaign, he saw minimal action from scrimmage except for his first two games. Hudson logged 21 and 49 snaps, respectively, in Weeks 8 and 9, the first pair of contests for which he suited up. However, he logged no more than seven snaps on offense in any game the rest of the way, while also putting in a handful of snaps on special teams each week. Hudson is an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason, and he therefore projects to return in 2020 and potentially compete for the third tight end role with Antony Auclair.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Ready for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (concussion) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

The 25-year-old missed Week 16 due to the concussion but will make his return for the season finale. Hudson should work as the Buccaneers' No. 3 tight end since O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate are currently healthy.

December 25, 2019 03:28 PM
Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Practices fully
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (concussion) was projected to be a full participant in the team's projected practice report Wednesday.

Hudson was held out of the team's Week 16 matchup against the Texans with a concussion. It's progress that Hudson was projected to practice fully Wednesday, though he will still need to clear the league's concussion protocol before he can participate in the team's Week 17 matchup against the Falcons.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Won't face Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (concussion) is ruled out for Saturday's contest against the Texans, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Hudson will remain sidelined until he clears the league's five-step protocol for concussions. O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate are in line to serve as Tampa Bay's top tight ends against Houston on Saturday.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: In concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (concussion) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

Hudson played just six snaps before departing Sunday. Jordan Leggett is in line to replace him if the 25-year-old isn't ready for Saturday's tilt against the Texans.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Suffers possible concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson left Sunday's game against the Lions to be evaluated for a concussion, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

The injury was announced in the latter stages of the fourth quarter, so Hudson may not be able to return regardless of whether he has a concussion. The 25-year-old caught his lone target for 14 yards prior to leaving the game.

Buccaneers' Tanner Hudson: Makes first career catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson brought in one of two targets for 12 yards in the Buccaneers' 40-34 overtime loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Hudson was active for a second straight week with O.J. Howard (hamstring) inactive again, and he was able to tally his first career grab. The athletic tight end actually out-targeted Cameron Brate, who logged only 11 snaps while still struggling with a rib injury. However, Hudson could be back to inactive status in Week 10 versus the Cardinals if Howard is able to return to action as expected.
