Signs contract with Saints

The Saints signed Wolf to a reserve/future contract Tuesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Back from Saints' COVID list

Wolf was activated from the Saints' practice squad COVID list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: The tight end was placed on the practice squad reserve/COVID-19 list Dec. 31, missing the Saints' Week 17 win over the Panthers. Wolf will return to a healthy tight end room, greatly limiting his potential impact for Week 18.

Added to practice squad COVID list

Wolf was placed on the Saints' practice squad Friday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: Wolf had been elevated to the active roster ahead of two of New Orleans' past three games but looks likely to sit this one out with so little time remaining before Sunday's tilt against the Panthers. With the Saints' tight end room healthy once again, the 26-year-old's potential absence probably won't affect the team's plans much in Week 17.

Headed back to practice squad

Wolf reverted back to the Saints' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Wolf was elevated to the active roster due to the absence of both Adam Trautman (illness) and Juwan Johnson (illness) for the Saints' Week 16 matchup against Miami. He played 12 offensive snaps and recorded a pair of catches for eight yards, but he will now head back to the practice squad. Given the likelihood that both Trautman and Johnson return in time for a Week 17 matchup against Carolina, Wolf may not be elevated again for the foreseeable future.

Elevated to active roster

Wolf was elevated from the Saints' practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Dolphins, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Wolf also joined the Saints' active roster and wasn't targeted while playing just eight offensive snaps. He should serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Nick Vannett on Monday since Adam Trautman (illness) and Juwan Johnson (illness) are on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Sent back to practice squad

Wolf reverted back to the Saints' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Bumped up from practice squad

Wolf was elevated to the active roster Sunday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: Wolf went undrafted out of Tennessee and has spent time on the Colts and Rams practice squads before joining the Saints in 2020. He's yet to be active for an NFL game but that looks likely to change Sunday against the Jets.

Time up in Big Easy

The Saints cut Wolf on Tuesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Participating in team drills

Wolf (ankle) participated in team drills during Wednesday's practice, Sean Fazende of FOX 8 WVUE-TV reports.

Analysis: While Wolf missed practice time during the start of training camp because of an ankle injury, he logged seven offensive snaps during New Orleans' preseason opener last weekend. As it doesn't appear that he's suffered any sort of setback since, the Tennessee product seems set to make another preseason appearance Monday against the Jaguars.

Ankle injury

Wolf did not practice Thursday due to an ankle issue, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: Wolf is aiming to secure a depth role in New Orleans' tight end room, so he can't afford to miss much time due to injury. Since going undrafted back in 2018, Wolf has yet to make his NFL debut.

Aug 5, 2021 8:22 AM EST


Pens future deal

Wolf signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Inks practice squad deal

Wolf agreed to sign with the Saints' practice squad Wednesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Wolf has spent time between the Saints and Colts this season on both practice squads, as he's failed to see regular-season action this season. Wolf will provide depth at the tight end position as he tries to make a push for a 53-man roster spot around the league.

Signs with Colts

The Colts signed Wolf to the practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Wolf and Hale Hentges will battle for a potential promotion to the active roster in Week 3 versus the Jets, as Jack Doyle (ankle) could sit out for a second straight week. The 24-year-old Wolf hasn't played an NFL snap since entering the league in 2018.

Sep 22, 2020 2:27 PM EST


Let go by Saints

Wolf cleared waivers and became a free agent Sunday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: Wolf wasn't retained on the practice squad, either. The 24-year-old tight end hasn't played a snap since entering the league in 2018, so he'll likely seek a spot on another practice roster.

Sep 9, 2020 4:35 PM EST


Heads to Big Easy

The Saints signed Wolf to a contract Tuesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: Wolf was one of four tight ends to try out for New Orleans this week. The 24-year-old spent time on the Ram's practice squad in 2019, and he'll now get a chance to compete for a reserve role in the Saints' tight end room.
