Top J.P. Holtz News

  • J.P. Holtz: Brought back by New Orleans

    The Saints signed Holtz to their practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Holtz had seen action in each of New Orleans' contests since Week 4 before he was waived Saturday. He'll now return to the organization as a member of the team's practice squad. Holtz has been a non-factor as a pass catcher throughout most of his NFL career -- he's played in 35 games over the past three campaigns but has seen only one target and hasn't recorded a catch.

  • Saints' J.P. Holtz: Signed to active roster

    The Saints signed Holtz off the practice squad Wednesday.

    Holtz has landed a permanent spot on New Orleans' active roster after being elevated from the team's practice squad for the first time in Week 4. The 29-year-old served as the team's third-string tight end behind Adam Trautman and Juwan Johnson, as Nick Vannett did not see the field Sunday. Though Holtz did not record a target while playing 10 offensive snaps, he seems poised to take over as the team's No. 3 tight end moving forward.

  • J.P. Holtz: Let go by New Orleans

    The Saints waived Holtz on Tuesday.

    The Saints don't have a headliner at tight end, but it is a deep group, which left Holtz as the odd man out. The undrafted pro out of Pittsburgh hasn't caught a pass since 2019, but his blocking prowess may draw the attention of a few teams.

  • Saints' J.P. Holtz: Inks deal with New Orleans

    Holtz signed a contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    After posting seven catches for 91 yards in 2019, Holtz failed to catch a pass in 2020 or 2021. If he makes the initial 53-man roster, the undrafted tight end out of Pittsburgh will likely serve primarily as a blocker once again in 2022.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Posts no stats in 2021

    Holtz failed to see a target in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season without recording a catch.

    After posting seven catches for 91 yards in 2019, Holtz failed to catch a pass in 2020 or 2021. He'll be a restricted free agent this offseason, and unless his situation drastically changes, he won't likely be selected in most 2022 fantasy drafts.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Ready for Week 18

    Holtz (personal) was a full practice participant Wednesday.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Out Sunday

    Holtz (personal) is inactive Sunday against the Giants.

    Holtz was considered doubtful after not being with the team Thursday or Friday due to the personal matter. As he mainly contributes on special teams, Holtz' absence shouldn't impact the Bears' game plan when they host the Giants on Sunday.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Holtz (personal) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Holtz missed practice Thursday and Friday due to a personal matter, and he'll likely be held out in Week 17. The 28-year-old has played mainly on special teams this year, so his status shouldn't significantly impact Chicago's offensive plans.
