Pinkney signed a futures contract with the Titans Wednesday.
Analysis: Pinkney has seen an active roster once so far, which was with the Falcons in Week 17, but didn't end getting to make his NFL debut as he was listed as inactive. The tight end had an impressive four years at Vanderbilt, where he had 114 receptions for 1,560 yards and 14 touchdowns. He'll have his sights set on finally seeing the field with the Titans in the upcoming season.
Pinkney reverted back to Atlanta's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: Pinkney was brought up to the active roster ahead of the final contest of the season against the Buccaneers, but he was ultimately inactive. He'll set his sights on next season, with the hope of making his NFL debut.
Pinkney (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Analysis: Pinkney was promoted to the Falcons' active roster Saturday, but the 23-year-old won't ultimately make his NFL debut Week 17 against Tampa Bay. He'll head into the offseason as a developmental option at tight end as Atlanta interviews candidates for its general manager and head coaching vacancies.
Pinkney was promoted to the Falcons' active roster Saturday.
Analysis: Pinkney is slated to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Buccaneers, but playing time could be minimal for the rookie out of Vanderbilt with the team's corps of tight ends at full health.
Pinkney signed with the Falcons' practice squad Sunday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Pinkney enjoyed a breakout junior campaign in which he racked up 50 receptions for 774 yards and seven touchdowns, but otherwise he never exceeded 22 catches, 280 receiving yards or three touchdowns in any of his other three collegiate seasons for Vanderbilt. The Falcons noted Pinkney's upside and quickly signed him to an undrafted free agent contract following April's draft, but ultimately the team elects to go with Hayden Hurst, Jaeden Graham and Luke Stocker as its Week 1 options at tight end. For now, the 6-foot-4 Pinkney will continue his NFL journey as a developmental option for a Falcons team that has a proven propensity to promote players from within (just ask current defensive captain and former practice-squad member, Ricardo Allen).
