Bears Cut Stephen Carlson

Tuesday, August 29, 11:19 PM

The Chicago Bears cut tight end Stephen Carlson on Tuesday to trim their roster down to 53 players, according to a source. Carlson will likely be back on the practice squad if he clears waivers. Chicago will open the 2023 regular season with Cole Kmet atop the tight end depth chart, followed by Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis. Carlson had a strong training camp this summer and caught five passes for 47 yards in preseason action. The former undrafted free agent out of Princeton hasn't seen any NFL action since 2020. In his two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, he caught six of nine targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in 25 games (seven starts).

Donald Parham Jr. Leads The Chargers In Receiving In Week 18

Monday, January 8, 12:15 AM

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Donald Parham Jr. led the team in receiving yards in a Week 18 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs backups. Parham was targeted six times, making five catches for 83 yards. Parham has always had tantalizing upside thanks to his size and athleticism, but injuries and inconsistency have left him as a fantasy afterthought despite all of that. The Chargers roster is sure to look quite different come Week 1 of next season, but Parham is unlikely to carve out a key role outside of his usual red zone involvement.
