Darren Waller Considered Retirement

Friday, March 1, 2:05 PM

New York Giants tight end Darren Waller reportedly considered retirement after a disappointing first season in New York in 2023, according to sources. Waller was injured again last year and had just one touchdown in 12 games played in the Big Apple. The 31-year-old veteran will not walk away, though, and has chosen to return in 2024. He's due to make $10.5 million in base salary this year and count $14 million on the salary cap. Waller will not be an offseason cap casualty, according to a source. In 2019 and 2020, Waller had 197 catches, 2,341 yards and 12 touchdowns. But hamstring injuries caused him to miss 14 games in 2021 and 22 with the Raiders, and hamstring issues resurfaced again in 2023. He'll be a massive TE1 injury risk in fantasy this fall.

Johnny Mundt Stays Busy In Loss To Lions

Monday, January 8, 1:23 PM

Minnesota Vikings tight end Johnny Mundt had an elevated role yet again in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Detroit Lions on Sunday with T.J. Hockenson (knee) out. The 29-year-old had season-highs in catches (five) and receiving yards (58) while drawing six targets. His 58 receiving yards finished second on the team behind receiver Justin Jefferson's 192 yards. In Week 17, Mundt had four catches for 39 yards and his first touchdown of the year. Fellow tight end Josh Oliver also had two receptions for 31 yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss. Mundt will be venturing into free agency this March as he heads into his eighth season in the NFL. He'll be competing for a backup role with whichever organization he ends up signing with. Mundt had 17 catches for a career-high 172 yards and one touchdown in 17 games in 2023.
