Chris Manhertz, No targets in finale

Manhertz played 30 of 68 offensive snaps during Sunday's 26-11 win over the Colts and didn't receive a target.

Analysis: Jacob Hollister and Luke Farrell both saw a bit more playing time, but Hollister was the only Jags tight end to be a factor in the passing game with three catches for 14 yards. Manhertz joined Jacksonville on a two-year, $6.65 million deal in March 2021, and he caught six passes for 71 yards and a touchdown in 17 games. The 29-year-old is set to make $2.9 million in 2022 and should continue to see most of his action as a blocking tight end.

Kyle Allen, Barely plays in 2021

Allen made two appearances during the 2021 campaign, completing 12 of 19 passes for 120 yards and a touchdown for Washington.

Analysis: Allen came back from last year's broken leg and earned a spot on the team as the No. 3 QB, then quickly rose to No. 2 after Ryan Fitzpatrick injured his hip in the season opener. No matter, Allen barely ended up playing, with Taylor Heinicke enjoying a healthy season under center, though his performance was less than stellar, especially toward the end. Allen is scheduled for restricted free agency in the offseason, and presumably will be viewed as a backup whether he stays in Washington or ends up elsewhere. Heinicke, meanwhile, is signed through 2022.

Omar Bayless, Gets futures deal

Bayless was signed to a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: Bayless was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Panthers in 2020 and was on their practice squad until September of 2021. He'll now look to carve out a role with the Chiefs next season.

Ian Thomas, No looks in finale

Thomas was not targeted in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Thomas saw rookie Tommy Tremble return to the lineup and lead him in offensive snaps, contributing toward another quiet outing. Despite starting 13 of 17 games this season, Thomas managed just 18 catches on 30 targets for 188 yards and no touchdowns. The former fourth-round pick is now slated to enter unrestricted free agency this offseason, when he could offer depth to a team's options at tight end, with it unclear whether the Panthers will try to bring him back.

Reggie Bonnafon, Inks new deal with Washington

Washington signed Bonnafon to a reserve/future contract Monday.

Analysis: Bonnafon spent the 2021 season with the Panthers' organization, appearing in four games for the team. The running back will link up with a new squad in Washington heading into the 2022 season, likely operating as a depth piece behind starter Antonio Gibson.
