Arnold recorded 31 receptions (on 45 targets) for 438 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games during the 2020 season.
Analysis: Arnold paced position mates Maxx Williams, Darrell Daniels and Seth DeValve in all statistical categories, including offensive snaps (470 of 1,131, or 41.6 percent). On top of that, Arnold ranked third on the team in receiving yards and TD catches, and fifth in receptions and targets. His 14.1 YPC ranked first among qualified tight ends, a shade ahead of Rob Gronkowski's 13.8. Arnold enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, so it'll be interesting to see if the Cardinals retain him, or he takes his services elsewhere.

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

Humphrey signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: Humphrey played in the final three regular-season games, and he logged a 54 percent snap share in the wild-card win over the Bears. Over those four contests, Humphrey recorded four receptions (six targets) for 60 yards and a touchdown. While he's not expected to crack the starting lineup anytime soon, Humphrey could add a depth role in the Big Easy next year.

Jones signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: Jones spent the first 16 weeks on the practice squad before being called up in Week 17 after a COVID-19 situation occurred in the running back room. He rushed three times for 13 yards and took a backseat to Ty Montgomery. Jones likely will need to make an impact on special teams to secure a roster spot in 2021.

Thomas is expected to undergo surgeries on his shoulder and ankle this offseason, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Thomas has a torn deltoid in his shoulder and injured ligaments in the upper part of his ankle. The ankle issues caused him to miss nine games in 2020, and this report from Schefter suggests he might've sat out longer if he hadn't been so eager for a Super Bowl push in what was expected to be Drew Brees' final NFL season. The campaign had a disappointing finish -- both for Thomas individually and the Saints as a whole --- but there were some encouraging developments along the way, including Taysom Hill completing 71.9 percent of his passes in four starts. Thomas averaged 7.5 catches for 85.8 yards on 9.3 targets in those four games, and he was even more productive in 2019 when Teddy Bridgewater played QB for New Orleans. The soon-to-be 28-year-old wideout should continue to put up big numbers even if Brees retires, though he will face an added challenge heading into 2021, likely missing part of the offseason program or even training camp while he rehabs from multiple surgeries.
