The Steelers signed Fitzpatrick to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Fitzpatrick spent the majority of the campaign on the Steelers' practice squad, but he saw one elevation in Week 5, through he failed to garner a target across five offensive snaps. With his new contract, the 2021 fourth-round pick will have a chance to compete for a roster spot throughout the offseason.

Hesse caught nine of 11 targets for 89 yards across 17 appearances during the 2022 campaign.
Analysis: Hesse operated as the Falcons' No. 1 tight end, even when Kyle Pitts (knee) was healthy, but the former was nearly exclusively utilized as a blocker. The undrafted product out of Iowa will be a free agent this offseason, but given how many offensive snaps (619) he played in 2022, Hesse figures to be a likely candidate to re-sign with Atlanta this offseason.

Burks caught four of seven targets for 19 yards in Saturday's 20-16 loss to the Jaguars.
Analysis: Burks led all Tennessee pass catchers in targets Saturday, but the rookie was unable to make much noise in the contest. The 22-year-old showed flashes of great potential this season, giving the Titans hope that he can fill the void left by the departure of A.J. Brown before this season. Burks finished the 2022 campaign with 33 catches for 444 yards and a touchdown. He added four rushing attempts for 47 yards. The wideout played just 11 games, missing time due to injury. Heading into the 2023 season, Burks has the opportunity to build upon some of his early success and compete for top billing on the Titans' wide receiver depth chart.

Kinsey signed a reserve/future contract with the Titans on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Kinsey has spent the past two seasons with Tennessee's practice squad and was elevated for two games during the 2022 campaign. The third-year wideout ultimately recorded one three-yard reception over 13 offensive snaps this season, marking the first catch of his career. Kinsey will look to carve out a bigger role in the team's under-stocked receiving corps this offseason.

Smith finished the 2022 season with 27 catches on 38 targets for 245 yards in 14 games.
Analysis: Since signing a four-year, $50,000,000 deal with the Patriots that runs through the 2024 season, Smith's fantasy impact has been modest, while working in a tight end time-share that has tilted in favor of Hunter Henry, whose deal with the team goes through 2023. In that context, Smith's weekly lineup utility next season figures to be limited to deeper leagues, though in the event that Henry is sidelined at any point, Smith -- who missed time down the stretch in 2022 due to a concussion -- could yield dividends as a streaming option.
