Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Set to be cut
Gresham will be released by the Cardinals later this week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Gresham has two seasons remaining on a four-year, $28 million contract that arguably makes him the most overpaid tight end in the league. He still has some value as a blocker, but he's averaged just 17.8 yards per game in 58 appearances for the Cardinals. The 30-year-old may have to settle for a backup role once he hits the open market, while Arizona will move forward with Charles Clay and Ricky Seals-Jones at tight end.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Manages just nine catches in 2018
Gresham reeled in nine of his 12 targets for 94 yards and one touchdown in 13 games during the 2018 season.
Gresham didn't have much problem seeing the field in his ninth pro season, ranking behind just Ricky Seals-Jones in terms of offensive snap share (44.3 versus 56.9 percent) among Cardinals tight ends. However, Gresham didn't come close to upholding his standard, production-wise, from three previous years in Arizona, setting career lows in all receiving categories. Gresham has two years remaining on a lucrative contract signed in March of 2017, but considering the lack of output in 2018, it wouldn't surprise if management explored getting out of the deal, despite significant dead-cap hits, per OverTheCap.com....

Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Isn't targeted yet again
Gresham played 46 of the Cardinals' 53 snaps on offense during Sunday's 31-9 loss to the Rams. However, he wasn't targeted in the contest.
Pass-catching tight end Ricky Seals-Jones dealt with food poisoning during Week 16 prep, and while he was active, he left after five offensive snaps and didn't return due to a stinger. Gresham and John Phillips (10 snaps on offense) got all the TE reps the rest of the way, but only the latter got in the box score, catching his only target for nine yards. In seven games since the Cards' Week 9 bye, Gresham has reeled in just three of five passes for 26 yards. When healthy, Seals-Jones is the only tight end in Arizona worth a look.... See More ...

Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Catches first pass of December
Gresham caught his lone target for a 16-yard gain during Sunday's 40-14 loss to the Falcons.
However modest the production, Sunday featured more yards for Gresham than the previous five outings combined. That's how dismal things have been for Gresham and, in general, Arizona's offense. Sunday offered another low point as rookie Josh Rosen was benched late after three turnovers and back-to-back drives that generated negative yardage. Don't expect much better Sunday against a middle-of-the-pack Rams pass defense.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Brings in sole target
Gresham caught his only target for two yards during Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Chargers.
Gresham didn't have much of a chance to produce Week 12, with rookie quarterback Josh Rosen totaling just over 100 passing yards on the day. However, it's not as if his quiet performance was an anomaly. The veteran tight end has caught one pass or has been held without a catch in eight of nine starts this season. Gresham will remain firmly behind Ricky Seals-Jones heading into the Week 13 tilt against the Packers.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Snags pass
Gresham caught one of his two targets for an eight-yard gain during Sunday's 23-21 loss to Oakland.
It was the seventh time in eight games this season that Gresham came away with one or no catches. Ricky Seals-Jones is the primary weapon at tight end in Arizona and even he has been inconsistent in his performances. Sunday brings a Chargers defense that has been on the rise in recent weeks....

Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Target-free for third time
Gresham played 29 (on 73) offensive snaps during Sunday's 26-14 defeat in Kansas City.
The breakdown of reps between Gresham and Ricky Seals-Jones depends on the week. On this occasion, the latter led the way with 46 snaps on offense, which he used to produce five catches (on nine targets) for 51 yards. Meanwhile, Gresham went without a target for the third time in seven games this season. He also is averaging just one target per contest in 2018, making him a fantasy nonentity in his ninth NFL campaign.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Active Sunday
Gresham (back) is listed as active Sunday at Kansas City, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Despite elevating to full participation at Friday's practice, Gresham was listed as questionable for this game due to a back injury. By avoiding the inactive list Week 10, the 30-year-old will be available to the Cardinals offense, primarily as a blocker due to his meager mark of 1.2 targets per game this season.... See More ...

Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Status in question for Sunday
Gresham (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest in Kansas City, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Gresham bumped up to full participation at Friday's practice, which is generally the basis for getting clearance to play. That said, the veteran tight end enters the weekend with a designation. If he's active Sunday, as he has been in each of the Cardinals' previous six games, Gresham will be little more than a fringe TE option due to his mark of 1.2 targets per outing.... See More ...

Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Limited with back injury
Gresham (back) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.
Gresham isn't carrying an injury designation for his Achilles or heel for the first time since tearing the former Week 17 of last season. However, the 30-year-old continues to tend to some bumps and bruises coming off the Cardinals' Week 9 bye. Look for Gresham to serve primarily in a blocking role due to the protection issues of the offensive line, with only the occasional target due to the presence of pass-catching tight end Ricky Seals-Jones....

Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Tallies 22 yards Week 8
Gresham reeled in all three passes for 22 yards during Sunday's 18-15 win against the 49ers.
A late addition to the Week 8 injury report, Gresham's heel injury was a callback to his season-ending torn Achilles from the 2017 finale. He brushed it off, though, and logged 31 offensive snaps versus 48 for fellow tight end Ricky Seals-Jones, who recorded two catches (on four targets) for 12 yards. Gresham's catch rate of 85.7 percent this season can't be denied, but with just seven targets in six games, his lack of volume keeps him on the outside looking in.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Active Sunday
Gresham (heel) is active for Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
In Week 7 against the Broncos, Gresham earned more offensive snaps than fellow tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (39 to 29) for the first time this season. Nevertheless, Seals-Jones remains the preferred receiver at the position, recording 10 catches to Gresham's three in the veteran's five appearances so far. Expect much of the same with Gresham primarily focused on blocking duties.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Questionable for Week 8
Gresham (heel) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
Gresham didn't make an appearance on the Cardinals' injury report until Friday, when he was listed as limited. He likely is dealing with the residual effects of his torn Achilles from Week 17 of last season, but his availability for Week 8 will be watched to see if he can play Sunday. If not, Ricky Seals-Jones would serve as the primary tight end.... See More ... See Less
