Released by Pittsburgh

Baugh was released by the Steelers on Saturday, Brooke Pryor of reports.

Analysis: Baugh's release comes as the Steelers must trim their roster down to 53 players before the regular season. The 6-foot-4, 245-pound tight end was competing for a reserve role, but did not do enough stick around with the team with depth at the position, headlined by Eric Ebron and Pat Freiermuth.

Gets chance in Pittsburgh

The Steelers signed Baugh on Friday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Baugh appeared in eight games for Washington last season, in which span he caught his only target for two yards. He'll now get an opportunity to compete for a reserve role in Pittsburgh.

Cut by Washington

Baugh was released Monday.

Analysis: Washington restocked the tight end room by drafting John Bates in the fourth round and signing free agent Sammis Reyes, leaving Baugh expendable. Baugh, who caught one pass for two yards last season, will hope to latch on with another team.

Makes eight appearances

Baugh played eight games for Washington in 2020, catching his only target for a two-yard again.

Analysis: Baugh played 54 snaps on offense over the first four weeks of the regular season, and 15 snaps over the final four weeks. In between, he was stuck on the practice squad, while Temarrick Hemingway (wrist) operated as the No. 3 tight end behind Logan Thomas and Jeremy Sprinkle. None besides Thomas had any impact in the passing game, and they all figure to be on the roster bubble (in Washington or elsewhere) next summer.

Moving to active roster

Baugh was promoted to Washington's active roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Baugh has been on the practice squad since getting cut by Washington in late October, but he'll now return to the active roster. The 24-year-old has one reception for two yards in his four appearances this season.

Retained on practice squad

Washington signed Baugh to the practice squad Saturday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: The Football Team cut Baugh on Thursday, but the 25-year-old tight end will stick with the team as a member of the scout team. Moving forward, Logan Thomas, Jeremy Sprinkle and Temarrick Hemingway will handle the tight-end reps with the active roster.

Done in Washington

The Football Team cut Baugh on Thursday.

Analysis: Baugh's departure paves the way for Robert Foster to join Washington's active roster. In four appearances this season, Baugh hauled his only target for two yards while mostly contributing on special teams.

Not on injury report

Baugh (undisclosed) isn't on Washington's injury report to start the week, Nicki Jhablava of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: This isn't a surprising development, as Baugh's absence from last week's loss to the Rams wasn't injury-related. The third-string tight end will hope to put in a good week of practice and make the game-day roster Sunday against the Giants.

Won't play Week 5

Baugh (undisclosed) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Baugh's absence isn't injury related, so he may simply be a healthy scratch or addressing something personal. The 25-year-old normally contributes as a depth tight end for Washington, taking most of his snaps as a blocker.

Inks deal in Washington

Baugh signed with the Redskins on Tuesday.

Analysis: Baugh spent the 2019 season on the Panthers' injured reserve with an undisclosed injury, and he still hasn't made his NFL debut since entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2018. With Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis both retiring this year, Baugh will be among a few other tight ends vying for a Week 1 roster spot.

Waived by Carolina

Baugh (undisclosed) was waived by the Panthers on Friday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Baugh was waived/injured by the team at roster cutdowns, but he reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers and remained there the entire season. The 25-year-old went undrafted out of Ohio State in 2018 and has yet to make his NFL debut.

Feb 21, 2020 2:17 PM EST

IR bound

Baugh (undisclosed) reverted to the Panthers' injured reserve on Wednesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Baugh was waived/injured by the team prior to final roster cuts, but ended up going unclaimed. He will stay there for the rest of the season unless both parties reach an injury settlement once his health allows it.

Cut by Carolina

Baugh was cut by the Panthers on Saturday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Baugh never had a strong chance to make the Panthers' 53-man roster, with Greg Olsen and Ian Thomas solidified as the team's top two tight ends. He'll look to earn a reserve role with another team.

Aug 31, 2019 11:18 AM EST

Reaches deal with Carolina

The Panthers signed Baugh to a one-year contract Tuesday.

Analysis: Baugh was one of the top tight ends in the Alliance of American Football this spring, snagging 13 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns. The Panthers signed him along with Cole Hunt, but Baugh has an uphill battle to secure a roster spot considering there are currently seven tight ends on the roster.
