Hikutini cleared waivers Sunday and signed with the Cowboys' practice squad, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Hikutini hasn't played an NFL snap since his 2017 rookie season, and since the Cowboys are carrying four tight ends, there may need to be more than one injury for him to be activated.
The Cowboys waived Hikutini on Friday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Hikutini hasn't played in a game since his rookie season in 2017, and he was seeking a depth role with the Cowboys. He could land on the team's practice squad if he clears waivers.
Hikutini signed a reserve/future contract with the Cowboys on Monday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Hikutini, an undrafted tight end out of Louisville, has spent time with the 49ers, Vikings and Cowboys across his three years in the league. He'll look to carve out a role in Dallas this offseason.
Hikutini was waived by Minnesota on Saturday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Hikutini showed some promise as an undrafted rookie in 2017 while with San Francisco but he's been unable to make an active roster since then. He may get a look as a practice squad candidate.
Hikutini signed a reserve/future contract with the Vikings on Wednesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Hikutini finished the 2018 season on the Vikings' practice squad after getting cut by the 49ers prior to the start of the regular season. He'll now get a chance to secure a potential No. 4 job at tight end behind Kyle Rudolph, David Morgan, and Tyler Conklin.
Hikutini (groin) caught his lone target for 18 yards in Thursday's preseason win over Dallas.
Analysis: Hikutini was dealing with a minor groin injury last week, but he appears to have gotten over the issue in short order. Starting tight end George Kittle suffered a shoulder injury Thursday, so Hikutini will serve as the primary backup to Garrett Celek until Kittle returns to action.
