Bills | Buffalo could pursue Gary Barnidge

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 10:16:30 -0700

Free-agent TE Gary Barnidge (Browns) could be an option for the Buffalo Bills if he is willing to accept the veteran minimum, in the opinion of BuffaloBills.com's Chris Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Barnidge is looking for a starting role with a team and may need to wait until training camp before signing with a team. He probably will be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues. Charles Clay likely will be the starting tight end for the Bills this season and can be a No. 2 option for owners.

NFL | Gary Barnidge awaiting starting chance

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 07:06:06 -0700

Free-agent TE Gary Barnidge (Browns) hasn't signed with a team because he's holding out to land a starting spot.

Fantasy Tip: The soon-to-be 32-year-old put together a breakout 79-1,043-9 season in 2015, but he struggled, as did the entire Browns offense last season. He could still land in a spot to make him worth a high-end TE2 spot on your fantasy roster.

Broncos | Gary Barnidge speaks with Denver

Tue, 30 May 2017 09:28:03 -0700

Free-agent TE Gary Barnidge (Browns) recently spoke with the Denver Broncos and did the same earlier with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has already reportedly visited the Buffalo Bills, according to Sirius XM NFL Radio.

Fantasy Tip: Barnidge obviously is holding out hope to be a team's No. 1 tight end, but his market has been slow to develop. It's unlikely that chance would come in Denver, where the Broncos like A.J. Derby and just drafted Michigan's Jake Butt. He'd have a much better opportunity to start in Jacksonville or Buffalo and would be a serviceable fantasy TE2 in either location.

NFL | Gary Barnidge may talk with JAX, CAR

Wed, 03 May 2017 17:13:54 -0700

Updating a previous report, free-agent TE Gary Barnidge (Browns) may meet with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Barnidge is receiving interest from several teams, so he should find a new team in the near future. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end if he decides to sign with the Jaguars but likely would be a No. 2 tight end if he signs with Carolina.

NFL | Gary Barnidge has more visits set up

Wed, 03 May 2017 09:23:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, free-agent TE Gary Barnidge (Browns) has two more visits planned for next week after visiting Buffalo Bills on Wednesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: It was a pretty sure bet Barnidge would land on his feet pretty quickly, and this would seem to confirm he'll find a new team sooner than later. The 31-year-old probably will probably never repeat his breakout 2015 campaign, but he could potentially find his way into low-end TE1 value this season if he finds the right landing spot.

Bills | Gary Barnidge visiting Bills

Wed, 03 May 2017 05:54:47 -0700

Free-agent TE Gary Barnidge (Browns) is visiting the Buffalo Bills Wednesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Barnidge's production fell off a cliff last season after his breakout 79-1,043-9 season in 2015. He had 55 grabs for 612 yards and two scores, and he's probably somewhere in between those two in his age-32 season. He'll be a low-end TE1 with some rebound potential.

Browns | Gary Barnidge cut

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 12:23:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge was released Friday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku is obviously the future in Cleveland, and the Browns needed less than 24 hours to decide that would be the case. The 31-year-old Barnidge should find another team in short order, while Njoku will probably split time with Seth DeValve early on until Cleveland is ready to trust him full-time. The 20-year-old Njoku is probably too raw to be worthy of redraft consideration in 2017, but he is a very intriguing late first-round option in rookie drafts.

Browns | Gary Barnidge to be released

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 11:01:24 -0700

Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge has been informed he will be released, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Although the Browns drafted from Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku last night, this news comes as a bit of a surprise and basically opens the door for the raw rookie to start right away if he shows enough in camp. The 31-year-old Barnidge was a Pro Bowler in 2015 and finished with 55 catches a season ago, so it shouldn't take long for him to find a new gig.

Browns | Gary Barnidge tops the charts

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 14:10:44 -0800

Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge racked up five receptions for a team-high 42 yards in the Week 16 game against the San Diego Chargers on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: Barnidge was a giant disappointment this season from a fantasy perspective thanks to just one visit to the end zone. That touchdown came in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team's Week 17 opponent.
