Cole Wick News

Let go Friday

Wick was released by the Saints on Friday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: Wick's time in New Orleans has come to an end after not suiting up for a single game with the team. The 27-year-old hasn't played an NFL snap since 2018 where he missed his lone target. While the tight end has had some time away from the field, Wick will now aim to compete for a depth role elsewhere.

Opts out of 2020 campaign

Wick has elected to opt out of the 2020 season due to his asthma condition, Mike Triplett of reports.

Analysis: Wick, who to Saints signed to their practice squad late last season, had been expected to compete for a depth tight end role with New Orleans. The 26-year-old, who entered the NFL in 2016, has logged two career catches for 18 yards over the course of 11 games as a pro, six with the Lions in 2016 and five with the 49ers in 2018.

Secures future contract

Wick signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Monday, Mike Triplett of reports.

Analysis: The Saints' season ended earlier than expected, so they're locking down their practice-squad players as they look ahead to the 2020 season. Wick didn't play an NFL snap this year, but he has 11 total games at the top level under his belt. He'll vie for a depth role next year.

Finds new practice squad

Wick signed with the Saints' practice squad Saturday, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Wick previously spent time on the Raiders' practice squad, but now he's being brought in as the Saints gear up for a playoff run. Over 11 career NFL games, Wick has just two catches for 18 yards.

Joins Oakland's practice squad

Wick signed with the Raiders' practice squad Wednesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Analysis: Wick spent training camp with the Titans but was unable to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. The 26-year-old could make his way to Oakland's active roster should one of the team's tight ends suffer an injury.

Let go by Tennessee

Wick was waived by the Titans on Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Wick flashed as a receiver at times this preseason, but was ultimately unable to carve out a depth role in Tennessee. The Incarnate Word product will work to latch on elsewhere in the league.

Leads team in receiving

Wick hauled in three of his four targets for 42 yards in the Titans' second preseason contest against the Patriots.

Analysis: Wick worked with both the second and third-team quarterbacks, and showed the ability to work downfield with receptions of 10 and 25-yards. Unfortunately, he was also penalized twice -- for offensive holding on both occasions-- making it an up and down performance. With Delanie Walker back healthy, as well as the eventual return of Jonnu Smith (knee), it's unlikely Wick will make a meaningful impact during the regular season as a receiver.

Lands on injured reserve

Wick (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Wick signed with the Titans on Dec. 11, but did not play a single game with the team due to his lingering shoulder injury. The 25-year-old now joins fellow Tennessee tight ends Delanie Walker (ankle) and Jonnu Smith (knee) on season-ending injured reserve.

Dec 24, 2018 12:27 PM EST

Ruled out again

Wick (shoulder) is ruled out for Saturday's game against the Redskins, Turron Davenport of reports.

Analysis: Wick's only participation in practice this week came in the form of a limited session on Wednesday. The depth tight end has yet to play in a game since signing with the Titans on Dec. 11, and will work to make his Tennessee debut against the Colts in Week 17.

Won't play Sunday

Wick was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants with a shoulder injury, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Wick signed with the Titans on Tuesday and promptly found himself on the injury report, and he was unable to practice Thursday and Friday. The 25-year-old never practiced fully after signing so the offense is unlikely to be impacted by his absence.

Lands in Tennessee

Wick signed a contract with the Titans on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Wick's spot on the 53-man roster comes following the placement of Jonnu Smith (knee) on injured reserve. The 25-year-old will provide depth behind fellow tight ends Luke Stocker, Anthony Firkser and MyCole Pruitt as the season progresses.

Inks practice squad deal

Wick signed a contract to join the 49ers practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Just a day after being waived by the 49ers, Wick will apparently stick around with the club without being part of the 53-man roster. Should injuries arise on the 53-man roster, Wick would likely be one of the first options to rejoin it.

Oct 17, 2018 4:33 PM EST

Waived by 49ers

Wick was waived by the 49ers on Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Analysis: As the fourth tight end on the 49ers' depth chart, Wick was always expendable. He was let go in order to make room for quarterback Tom Savage on the 53-man roster. Assuming he clears waivers, he could be a candidate for San Francisco's practice squad.

Nabs reception in return

Wick (knee) suited up for Saturday's preseason tilt against the Texans, catching his lone target for 10 yards in a 16-13 loss.

Analysis: Wick suffered an injury scare after being carted off the field during a practice earlier this month, but his speedy recovery confirmed the minor nature of his knee injury. The 6-foot-6 tight end is currently competing with Cole Hikutini for third on the 49ers' depth chart. Wick was the first to relieve temporary starter Garrett Celek on Saturday, giving him a slight lead over his counterpart heading into the third week of the preseason.
