Gary Barnidge | Free Agent TE

Free agent TE Gary Barnidge will meet with the Texans, according to Chron.

The Texans have their top three tight ends all dealing with concussions, and Evan Baylis was called up from the practice squad and will be Houston's only tight end in tonight's game against the Bengals. With top tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz's concussion keeping him out for at least several weeks after he was placed on IR, something could come together quickly between Barnidge and the Texans. For tonight, maybe superstar defensive lineman J.J. Watt could get some time at tight end for Houston.

Free agent tight end Gary Barnidge is visiting the Jaguars on Tuesday, according to Mike Kaye.

Kaye reports Barnidge will visit and workout for the team. There hasn't been much known interest in Barnidge after he was cut by the Browns in late April, but the Jaguars are a team that could use him. If the Jaguars don't end up signing the former Pro Bowl tight end, other teams will certainly be interested if and when they find tight end as a need during training camp.

The Browns cut tight end Gary Barnidge.

With the 29th overall pick last night, the Browns selected Miami (FL) tight end David Njoku. Barnidge had a great season in 2015, breaking out for 1,043 yards and nine touchdowns, but the Browns are moving on from another veteran player. This should mean Njoku slides right in as the starting tight end, so he could offer TE1 value as a rookie as one of Cody Kessler's primary targets.

Gary Barnidge leads Browns in Week 16 targets.

He caught five-of-six targets for 42 yards. Barnidge is a low-upside fantasy option.

Gary Barnidge caught two-of-three targets for 35 yards in Week 15.

He's not a fantasy option after his breakout 2015.

Gary Barnidge leads team in receiving on Sunday.

Unfortunately, it was just three catches for 27 yards. Maybe he will be better next week against the Bills, since they allow the most yards per catch to tight ends in the NFL, but probably not.

Barnidge held to one catch against the Giants.

He had one catch for 11 yards. The chemistry with quarterback Josh McCown just wasn't there. Barnidge just isn't a good fantasy option this year.

Gary Barnidge catches touchdown in Browns’ loss.

Barnidge caught two passes for 23 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown from Josh McCown. Cody Kessler going down provides the biggest boost for Barnidge out of the Cleveland pass-catchers, and he and McCown have good chemistry. Still, it’s probably too much to hope for production like a season ago from Barnidge, making him no better than a low-end TE1 next week against the Giants.

Barnidge held to one catch for eight yards against the Ravens.

Barnidge has not scored a touchdown this year. After his breakout last year, Barnidge does not need to be on fantasy rosters.
