C.J. Uzomah Likely To Be Released

Monday, February 19, 8:38 PM

New York Jets tight end C.J. Uzomah and offensive lineman Laken Tomlinson are two of the team's potential salary cap cuts this offseason. Uzomah is a near lock to be released, but the Jets will save less money than they would have had general manager Joe Douglas not restructured Uzomah's contract last offseason. Cutting him would save $5.3 million with $5.9 million in dead cap space. The Jets will also save $5.4 million if/when they trade quarterback Zach Wilson this offseason. The 31-year-old Uzomah sprained his MCL in Week 13 and finished the year on Injured Reserve. He's done very little to help the Jets since the 2022 season, catching only 29 passes on 39 targets for 290 yards and three touchdowns in 27 games.

Noah Fant Won't Be Back On Sunday

Sunday, January 7, 5:41 PM

Seattle Seahawks tight end Noah Fant (hand) won't return to Sunday's meeting with the Arizona Cardinals. The 26-year-old suffered a hand injury in the first half, so he'll finish without a catch. At any rate, Fant hasn't been a routine fantasy performer all year, and Week 18 may cap off another underwhelming season. But if anything, his absence could open up more targets for Colby Parkinson and Will Dissly for the rest of the contest, although neither player can be trusted from a fantasy standpoint.
