After posting 313 yards with the Patriots between 2019 and 2020, Izzo played in one game last year for the Titans. He was signed by the Panthers on Aug. 11 but was let go in less than one week. He'll look to catch on as a depth option elsewhere.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Ryan Izzo: Added by Carolina
Izzo signed a contract with the Panthers on Thursday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Izzo was one of two tight ends, alongside Nate Becker, signed by Carolina on Thursday as the team deals with multiple injuries at the position over the past few days. The third-year tight end caught 19 of his 29 targets for 313 yards and one score over 18 games with the Patriots from 2019 to 2020, but he was waived by Tennessee in June after playing just one game for the team last season. Izzo should push for a backup role with the Panthers this preseason after tight ends Ian Thomas (ribs), Colin Thompson (calf) and Josh Babicz (undisclosed) all picked up injuries this past week....

Texans' Ryan Izzo: Plays 17 snaps against Tampa
Izzo (undisclosed) logged 17 snaps in Saturday's preseason loss to the Buccaneers, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Izzo left the Texans' preseason opener against the Packers with an undisclosed injury and there hadn't been any news on him since. However, his ability to suit up Saturday confirms he's clear of whatever issue he was dealing with. If he makes the final roster, expectations for Izzo should be tempered heading into the season, considering he slots in third on the tight-end depth chart for a team expected to struggle offensively throughout the campaign....

The Patriots are trading Izzo to the Texans for a 2022 seventh-round draft pick, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

A seventh-round pick himself, Izzo will now compete for a roster spot in Houston, where veteran TE Darren Fells was released in a corresponding move. Izzo caught 13 passes on 626 offensive snaps for the Patriots last season, struggling to command targets even when he had a three-down role in a pathetic passing offense.
