Daniel Helm: Back in Bay Area

The 49ers signed Helm to their practice squad Wednesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Helm cleared waivers Wednesday after he was cut by the team a day earlier, and the team elected to keep him in-house. The 25-year-old made his NFL debut in last week's win over the Rams, so he'll add nice depth and familiarity to the tight end depth chart on the practice squad.

Daniel Helm: Heads to waivers

The 49ers waived Helm on Tuesday.

Analysis: Helm made his NFL debut in this past Sunday's win over the Rams, as he logged five special-teams snaps but none on offense. If the 25-year-old tight end clears waivers, he'll be a practice squad candidate.

Daniel Helm: Signs with 49ers

Helm signed with the 49ers on Tuesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The 49ers signed Helm off the Buccaneers' practice squad following news that Jordan Reed (knee) is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks. Helm will simply serve as depth since George Kittle (knee) appears to be trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's game versus the Eagles.

Daniel Helm: Heads to Tampa Bay

The Buccaneers signed Helm to the practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: The Buccaneers have three solid tight ends on the active roster -- Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate. Helm will likely stay on the practice squad unless one of the aforementioned three get hurt.

Daniel Helm: Waived by Kansas City

The Chiefs waived Helm on Saturday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Analysis: Helm was claimed by Kansas City mid-August. The team remains in need of quality tight end depth, so if he goes unclaimed on waivers Helm could find himself back on the Chiefs' practice squad.

Daniel Helm: Nabbed off waivers

The Chiefs claimed Helm off waivers from the 49ers on Sunday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

Analysis: Every other team passed up on acquiring Helm, but the Chiefs opted to add depth to their tight-end room. Helm didn't play a snap in 2019 as an undrafted rookie, and he'll likely seek to be the No. 4 tight end behind Travis Kelce, Ricky Seals-Jones and Deon Yelder (groin).

Daniel Helm: Let go Saturday

Helm was waived by the 49ers on Saturday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Helm wasn't considered much of a receiving threat at tight end, and with George Kittle locked up for the foreseeable future, it's clear depth at the position is a bit less of a priority. It's possible Helm could ultimately wind up on the team's practice squad down the road.

Daniel Helm: Doesn't see action in 2019

Helm did not receive any playing time after being signed late in the 2019 season.

Analysis: Helm was signed from the practice squad in December following Garrett Celek's placement on IR. The latter has decided to retire, so there is a chance the undrafted rookie sticks with San Francisco if the team liked what they saw in practice during his rookie campaign. Helm wasn't much of a receiving threat at Duke, so his fantasy upside is limited, especially if he remains on the back end of a roster.

The 49ers signed Helm to the active roster from the practice squad Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Helm's chance on the 53-man roster comes following the placement of Garrett Celek (back) on injured reserve. The undrafted rookie out of Duke will slot in as the No. 4 tight end on San Francisco's roster.
