Heading to the desert

Bunting signed a reserve/future contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Bunting spent last offseason with the Colts but reached an injury settlement with the club in early September after suffering a leg injury during training camp. The 24-year-old has yet to see action in a regular-season contest.

The Colts waived Bunting (leg) on Tuesday with an injury settlement, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Bunting will now be free to sign elsewhere once he's fully healthy. He's still looking for an opportunity to make his NFL debut.

Shifts to IR

Bunting (leg) cleared waivers Tuesday and reverted to the Colts' injured reserve, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Bunting will remain on injured reserve unless he reaches an injury settlement with the team. The California product is a big-bodied, run-blocking tight end, but even once he's healthy, he'll need to fine-tune his craft to make an NFL roster.

Waived/injured by Colts

The Colts waived Bunting (leg) with an injury designation Sunday.

Analysis: Bunting will revert to Indianapolis' injured reserve list if he clears waivers. He suffered a leg injury during Saturday's practice. The 6-foot-7, 253-pound tight end offers developmental upside as a blocking specialist.

Sticking with Colts

Bunting signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts on Monday.

Analysis: The 23-year-old joined the Colts' practice squad in early October but never ended up making his way to the 53-man roster. Bunting worked as a run-blocking specialist during his senior year at the University of California in 2018, catching 18 passes for 195 yards.

Inks deal with practice squad

Bunting signed with the Colts' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie will join the Colts' before their bye week. He's considered a run-blocking specialist with just 18 receptions for 195 yards and no touchdowns in his final season with the University of California. Bunting will be on standby in case Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle or Mo Alie-Cox get injured.

Done in Chicago

The Bears released Bunting on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Bunting was an undrafted free agent out of California, and even led the team in receiving yards during Week 1 of the preseason. He couldn't stick with a veteran tight end room, and could be a practice squad candidate with the Bears or another team in the league.

Leads team in receiving yards

Bunting caught three passes for 77 yards in the Bears' preseason loss to the Panthers.

Analysis: Bunting found an opening in the defense after making a catch down the seam to rip off a 45-yard gain on his way to an impressive performance against the Carolina backups. He's currently fifth on the depth chart at tight end, and the Bears would need to carry four tight ends on the roster for him to have a realistic chance of making the regular-season roster.
