Cole Hikutini News

Staying in NFC East

Hikutini signed with the Giants on Tuesday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Hikutini spent the 2020 season with the Cowboys' practice squad, but he never played a game. The Louisville product hasn't played since his rookie 2017 season. With Evan Engram, Kyle Rudolph (foot), Kadin Smith and Levine Toilolo on board, Hikutinin has an uphill battle to nab a roster spot.

Let go by Cowboys

The Cowboys waived Hikutini on Friday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Hikutini was unable to make an appearance with the team during his time in Dallas. The tight end hasn't seen an NFL field since his 2017 season, during which he caught two out of three targets for 15 yards through four games with San Francisco. The 26-year-old will aim to compete for a depth role elsewhere in 2021.

Nabs practice squad role

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.

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.

Waived by Vikings

Hikutini was waived by Minnesota on Saturday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Signs contract with Minnesota

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.

Catches a pass Thursday

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.
