Gets another chance with Seattle

The Seahawks signed Hollister to their practice squad Wednesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Hollister played for Seattle in 2019 and 2020, compiling 66 catches for 558 yards and six touchdowns over 27 contests. The Wyoming product then latched on with Jacksonville last season but played in only seven games, and he competed in five contests between Minnesota and Las Vegas this season but didn't see any receiving targets while playing almost exclusively on special teams. Hollister could get a chance to be elevated to Seattle's active roster in short order with Will Dissly (knee) hitting IR on Tuesday, though he'd likely see limited playing time behind Noah Fant and Colby Parkinson.

Done with Raiders

Las Vegas released Hollister on Saturday.

Analysis: With Darren Waller (hamstring) finally coming off of the injured reserve list, the Raiders decided to part ways with Hollister. Provided he isn't claimed by another team during the current waiver period, Hollister is set to become an unrestricted free agent.

Joins Las Vegas

The Raiders signed Hollister off the Vikings' practice squad Friday.

Analysis: Hollister will join the Raiders' 53-man roster as a replacement for fellow tight end Darren Waller (hamstring), who was moved to injured reserve Thursday. Foster Moreau is expected to continue starting at tight end in Waller's stead while handling a near-every-down role, so Hollister and Jesper Horsted aren't likely to see much involvement on offense for the time being. Instead, if Hollister is active for this weekend's game against the Colts, he might see most of his playing time on special teams.

Returns to practice squad

Hollister reverted to the Vikings' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Hollister was elevated to the active roster for a second time this season and played primarily on special teams. However, with Irv Smith (ankle) unlikely to play in Week 9, it's possible Hollister gets another elevation and may even crack the offensive rotation while operating as the No. 2 tight end behind Johnny Mundt.

Elevated to active roster again

Minnesota elevated Hollister from its practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals, Tyler Forness of USA Today reports.

Analysis: Hollister was elevated to the active roster for Week 6 and played exclusively on special teams. The veteran tight end figures to garner a similar role Sunday.

Back down to practice squad

Hollister reverted to the Vikings' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Hollister was called up from Minnesota's practice squad for the first time since joining the team in late September. However, the sixth-year tight end played exclusively on special teams against the Dolphins, appearing on 11 snaps. Hollister could stand to see two more game-day activations while fellow tight end Ben Ellefson remains on IR over the Vikings' next two games.

Suiting up at Miami

Minnesota elevated Hollister from the practice squad to its active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game at the Dolphins.

Analysis: Hollister will make his Vikings debut in Week 6 with Ben Ellefson (groin) on the injured reserve list. Most of the offensive snaps he might log (if any) should come on obvious passing downs.

Inks with practice squad

Hollister (undisclosed) signed with the Vikings' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Hollister had signed a one-year deal with the Raiders in the spring and was placed on IR on Aug. 30, but he was waived with an injury settlement Sept 2. Now fully recovered from the unknown injury, Hollister has found a home on the Vikings' practice, where he'll certainly work to get a chance with the active roster.

Parts ways with Raiders

The Raiders released Hollister (undisclosed) from injured reserve Friday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: It's not yet clear what injury Hollister is dealing with, but he was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. However, he'll be eligible to return to the field this season after reaching an injury settlement with Las Vegas.

Sep 2, 2022 8:34 PM EST

Moved to IR

Hollister (undisclosed) was placed on the Raiders' injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: Hollister landed on IR after he apparently suffered an unspecified injury at some point this preseason. The 28-year-old tight end, who caught nine passes for 55 yards and one score over seven contests with Jacksonville last season, will now likely miss the entirety of the 2022 campaign while on Las Vegas' injured reserve, barring any injury settlement.

Aug 30, 2022 7:06 PM EST

Latches on with Vegas

Hollister signed a one-year contract with the Raiders on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Hollister is coming off a down year with the Jaguars, recording nine catches for 55 yards and a score in seven games. He'll benefit from veteran quarterback play in Derek Carr with his new squad, but he will also need to compete against Foster Moreau and Nick Bowers to get on the field, with Darren Waller in firm command of the top tight end spot.

Mar 21, 2022 6:33 PM EST

Three catches in finale

Hollister caught all three of his targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 26-11 win over the Colts.

Analysis: Hollister was Jacksonville's only tight end to be targeted Week 18, and he also led the position group with 45 offensive snaps. The Jags' tight ends didn't produce much in 2021, and Hollister was no exception with nine receptions for 55 yards and one touchdown in seven games. The 28-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent and figures to be fighting for a depth role in training camp wherever he ends up for 2022.

Jan 11, 2022 3:04 PM EST

Activated off COVID-19 list

Hollister (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Analysis: Hollister tested positive for the virus and was sidelined for the Jaguars' Week 17 blowout loss to the Patriots. In his last appearance, the reserve tight end caught both of his targets for a season-high 20 receiving yards.

Jan 5, 2022 7:32 AM EST

Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

Hollister (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

Analysis: The tight end tested positive for the virus Tuesday, putting his ability to play Sunday against the Patriots in question. Hollister will enter the league's protocols and if he can't play in Week 17, Kahale Warring could be elevated from the practice squad for the contest.

Dec 28, 2021 3:55 PM EST

Secures two receptions

Hollister caught both his targets for 20 yards during Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Hollister was targeted for the first time since Week 5 and played 36 of 73 offensive snaps Sunday, which was only six fewer snaps than starting tight end James O'Shaughnessy. Hollister has found himself back in the mix under interim coach Darrell Bevell, though his role as a secondary tight end means he doesn't offer much fantasy potential.

Dec 27, 2021 9:41 PM EST

Suiting up Sunday

Hollister is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: Hollister hasn't seen game action since Week 6 but will suit up for the first game with interim coach Darrell Bevell leading the way. The 28-year-old should work as the No. 3 tight end in place of Luke Farrell, who is a healthy scratch Sunday.

Dec 19, 2021 8:50 AM EST

Inactive once again

Hollister (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: Hollister has been working as a backup option at tight end with Dan Arnold sitting at the top of the depth chart. Hollister has appeared in just four games this season, making four catches on nine targets for 21 yards and a touchdown.

Nov 7, 2021 9:51 AM EST

Scores on lone target

Hollister caught a one-yard touchdown during Sunday's 37-19 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Hollister played only 15 offensive snaps but cashed in on his lone target with the one-yard score during the second quarter. Trade acquisition Dan Arnold has cemented himself atop the depth chart at tight end since being acquired from Carolina, while Hollister, Chris Manhertz and Luke Farrell continue to split snaps as depth options.

Oct 11, 2021 12:17 PM EST

Totals 15 yards on six targets

Hollister caught two of six targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 31-19 loss to the Cardinals.

Analysis: The 27-year-old led Jacksonville's tight ends by playing 68 percent of the offensive snaps, and he ended up having two of his targets intercepted, including one that was a clear drop. It was Hollister's first came action of the season after signing with the Jags in early September, and his audition for the starting role didn't go particularly well. Dan Arnold was acquired from the Panthers on Monday and should be in the mix to start at tight end with James O'Shaughnessy (ankle) on injured reserve for the foreseeable future.

Sep 27, 2021 2:11 PM EST

Joining Jacksonville

Hollister agreed to a contract with the Jaguars on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 27-year-old spent camp with the Bills and was unable to make the season-opening roster, and he'll now receive an opportunity with the Jags. Jacksonville has a weak group of tight ends with Chris Manhertz, James O'Shaughnessy and Luke Farrell, so Hollister could carve out a role in the offense with a strong showing at practice early on.
