Back with Denver

The Broncos signed Tomlinson on Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson didn't make the initial 53-man roster but returns to the team after the Broncos placed two players on injured reserve. The 30-year-old tight end appeared in all 17 games for Baltimore last year and is expected to garner a sizable role behind Albert Okwuegbunam in Denver, at least until rookie tight end Greg Dulcich returns from IR.

Parts ways with Denver

Tomlinson was released by the Broncos on Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson appeared in all 17 games for the Ravens last year and secured his lone target for seven yards. He's back to full health after dealing with a foot injury in June, but he'll be let go by Denver ahead of the regular season.

Back for start of training camp

Tomlinson participated in Denver's opening practice of training camp Wednesday, The Colorado Springs Gazette reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson was inactive while wearing a walking boot on his left during the Broncos' minicamp in June, but he appears to be back and healthy in training camp. The 30-year-old caught his lone target for seven yards over 17 games with Baltimore last season, and he figures to serve a depth, if not primarily blocking role, with Denver this coming campaign.

Not participating at practice

Tomlinson (foot) was present but not active during practice Monday, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Apparently he was seen with a boot on his left foot. It should become more clear what exactly is wrong with the foot in the coming days, but in the meantime his absence will create additional opportunities for 2022 UDFA additions Dylan Parham and Rodney Williams.

Inks deal with Denver

Tomlinson signed a one-year contract with the Broncos on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson spent part of 2021 on the Ravens' practice squad, but he still appeared in all 17 games and totaled one catch for seven yards. It was the 29-year-old's first reception since 2019, and he's likely to operate primarily as a blocker with his new team.

Signed to active roster

The Ravens signed Tomlinson to their 53-man roster Thursday, Ryan Mink of the Ravens' official site reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson has appeared in every game for the Ravens to begin the year, and he'll now rejoin the team's 53-man roster. He's had limited work in the passing game with just one reception for seven yards across eight contests.

Bumped up from practice squad

Tomlinson was elevated to the active roster Saturday, Clifton Brown of the Ravens' official site reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson has appeared in every game for the Ravens this season. He was released by the Ravens on Nov. 1, then re-signed to their practice squad and now will take the field for them again on Sunday. Tomlinson is mostly used on special teams and as a blocker on offense.

Cut, re-signs to practice squad

Tomlinson was released by Baltimore on Monday and re-signed to the practice squad.

Analysis: Tomlinson has appeared in all seven games for the Ravens this season but hasn't been targeted on 108 offensive snaps. He lost his place on the 53-man roster but will stick around the organization on the practice squad.

Nov 1, 2021 2:52 PM EST


Re-signs with Baltimore

Tomlinson signed a contract with the Ravens on Wednesday, Clifton Brown of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson was cut by the Ravens on Monday, but he'll rejoin the team a couple days later. The 29-year-old should serve as Baltimore's No. 3 tight end until Nick Boyle (knee) is ready to take the field.

Sep 1, 2021 10:22 PM EST


Falls short of roster spot

Tomlinson was released by the Ravens on Monday, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson geared up in seven games last year, but he was targeted just once across 126 snaps. Ravens tight end Nick Boyle (knee) could miss time to start the season. If that's the case, Tomlinson could be re-signed before the season opener.

Aug 30, 2021 8:06 PM EST


Re-signs with Baltimore

Tomlinson is re-signing with the Ravens, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson has played for five teams over the past five years, catching 17 passes for 194 yards and one touchdown on 1,144 defensive snaps. The veteran blocking specialist likely will enter training camp as the third or fourth tight end on Baltimore's depth chart, behind Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle (knee) at the very least.

Feb 10, 2021 7:18 AM EST


Signs with active roster

The Ravens signed Tomlinson to the active roster Tuesday.

Analysis: The Ravens waived Luke Willson (hip) on Saturday, and Tomlinson will take his place as the second tight end to Mark Andrews. Tomlinson has played in four games with the Ravens this year, receiving just one target over 63 snaps on offense.

Dec 22, 2020 5:38 PM EST


Active roster stint short-lived

Tomlinson reverted to the Ravens' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Tomlinson fielded 23 of 66 offensive snaps during Baltimore's Week 15 matchup against Jacksonville, a workload which ranked second at the tight end position behind only Mark Andrews. The UTEP product has been active for four consecutive games while Nick Boyle (knee-MCL) residing on injured reserve.

Dec 21, 2020 5:18 PM EST


Promoted to active roster

The Ravens elevated Tomlinson to the active roster Saturday, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson looks set to appear in his fourth straight game with the Ravens. He hasn't been targeted in that span, however, so it's safe to say that Tomlinson remains off the fantasy radar for now.

Dec 19, 2020 2:50 PM EST


Back to practice squad

Tomlinson reverted to the Ravens' practice squad Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson was called up to the 53-man roster for Monday's win over the Browns, playing 10 offensive snaps in the game and failing to record a fantasy-relevant stat. The UTEP product was a protected practice squad player Wednesday, so it's likely he'll earn another shot in a regular-season contest this season for the Ravens.

Dec 16, 2020 4:36 PM EST


Rises to active roster

The Ravens elevated Tomlinson to the active roster Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson's playing time in Monday's game against the Browns depends on whether Luke Willson (hip) is active. Over three games this season, Tomlinson hasn't received a target.

Dec 14, 2020 3:09 PM EST


Shifts to practice squad

Tomlinson reverted to the Ravens' practice squad Thursday, per the NFL's transaction report.

Analysis: Tomlinson was called up to the 53-man roster for Tuesday's win over the Cowboys, playing 14 offensive snaps in the game, failing to record a fantasy-relevant stat. The UTEP product will head back to the practice squad hoping to earn another shot in a regular season contest.

Dec 10, 2020 5:48 PM EST


Elevated for Week 13

Tomlinson was promoted to the Ravens' active roster from the practice squad for Tuesday's game against the Cowboys, Clifton Brown of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The 28-year-old was also called up for last week's loss to the Steelers, and he reverted to the practice squad after playing 16 target-less snaps on offense. Tomlinson should work as Baltimore's No. 2 tight end with Mark Andrews (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list and Nick Boyle (knee) on injured reserve.

Dec 8, 2020 4:52 PM EST


Back to practice squad

Tomlinson reverted to the Ravens' practice squad Thursday, per the NFL's official transactions report.

Analysis: Tomlinson was called up to the active roster for Wednesday's loss to the Steelers alongside Luke Willson and Sean Culkin. He played just 16 snaps on offense and didn't draw a target.

Dec 3, 2020 10:03 PM EST


Called up for Wednesday's game

Tomlinson has been elevated from the practice squad for Wednesday's game against the Steelers.

Analysis: Tomlinson will share tight end duties with fellow practice squad call-ups Luke Willson and Sean Culkin, as usual starting tight end Mark Andrews remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
