Jake Burt: Locks in practice-squad role

Burt cleared waivers Sunday and landed on the Patriots' practice squad, Andrew Callahan of The Springfield Republican reports.

Analysis: The Patriots are set to carry three tight ends on the active roster in 2020, but Burt will stick around in case an injury surfaces. Burt served mainly in a run-blocking role at Boston College, so even if he's activated, his fantasy upside is minimal.

Jake Burt: Doesn't make Patriots' roster

Burt was waived by the Patriots on Saturday, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reports.

Analysis: The undrafted free agent was paid an $80,000 in guaranteed money -- a high figure for tight ends -- but he couldn't carve out a role in the Patriots' offense. The team clearly thinks highly of Burt's potential, although he's more of a run-blocking asset than anything since he recorded just 212 receiving yards in his senior season at Boston College.
