Eric Tomlinson News

Ready to go Sunday

Tomlinson (ankle) is active Sunday against the Chargers.

Analysis: Tomlinson was unable to practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he'll take the field Sunday in the Broncos' regular-season finale. He'll likely fall behind Albert Okwuegbunam as the team's No. 3 option at tight end.

Questionable for season finale

Tomlinson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's season finale against the Chargers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson has been hindered in practice by an ankle injury. With Eric Saubert (knee) also questionable, the Broncos could be shorthanded at tight end behind Albert Okwuegbunam in the season finale.

Remains sidelined Thursday

Tomlinson (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Zac Stevens of reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson has now opened Week 18 prep with back-to-back DNP designations on Denver's injury report as a result of an ankle issue. The veteran tight end still has Friday's session to ramp back up to limited/full speed, but Albert Okwuegbunam, Eric Saubert (knee) and Andrew Beck (elbow) would all be in line for additional reps this weekend against the Chargers if Tomlinson is eventually unable to receive the green light.

Dealing with ankle injury

Tomlinson didn't practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Ellie Kinney of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Tomlinson played 22 offensive snaps in Week 17 but didn't record any offensive stats. It's unclear when he suffered the ankle injury or how severe the issue is, but he'll have two more chances to practice before Denver needs to make a decision on his status for Sunday's season finale against the Chargers.

Finds end zone in win

Tomlinson caught all three of his targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-15 win over the Cardinals.

Analysis: Tomlinson was the Broncos' most productive tight end in Sunday's victory over Arizona despite playing the third most offensive snaps at the position. The 30-year-old's three targets and three receptions were his highest marks in a game this year, while his touchdown was his first of the season. On the other hand, starter Greg Dulcich was a complete non-factor in the contest, reeling in just one of his two targets for 11 yards. Going forward, one should expect these roles to swing back in favor of Dulcich as Denver's No. 1 tight end. The rookie will look to bounce back after an underwhelming performance. Tomlinson, however, will not be a trustworthy option for fantasy purposes when the Broncos visit the Rams in Week 16.

Not targeted in win

Tomlinson failed to record a single target in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Tomlinson operated as Denver's No. 2 tight end Sunday, but he played just 18 of the team's 61 offensive snaps in the contest. Rookie Greg Dulcich, however, dominated the tight end snap share with 49 snaps on his way to leading the Broncos with 87 receiving yards. Barring an injury to Dulcich, Tomlinson is not a consideration for fantasy rosters as the Broncos head into their Week 9 bye.

Minimal involvement in loss

Tomlinson caught both of his targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 16-9 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Tomlinson operated as the Broncos' No. 2 tight end in the contest, playing 35 of the team's offensive snaps while starter Greg Dulcich played 47 snaps. The 30-year-old's two targets, two catches and 21 yards were all season highs for the veteran. Though the Broncos tight end room is a bit crowded, it appears the only player with real fantasy value going forward is Dulcich. The rookie played the most snaps at the position Sunday and saw nine targets in the game. With that said, Tomlinson should remain far off the fantasy radar when the Broncos square off against the Jaguars in Week 8.

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.

Aug 30, 2022 3:14 PM EST

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.

Jul 28, 2022 2:05 PM EST

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.

Mar 15, 2022 10:23 PM EST

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.

Nov 11, 2021 1:30 PM EST

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.

Nov 6, 2021 5:07 PM EST

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.
