Recent Player News

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge was released Friday, April 28.

    Huddle Up: Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku is obviously the future in Cleveland, and the Browns needed less than 24 hours to decide that would be the case. The 31-year-old Barnidge should find another team in short order, while Njoku will probably split time with Seth DeValve early on until Cleveland is ready to trust him full-time. The 20-year-old Njoku is probably too raw to be worthy of redraft consideration in 2017, but he is a very intriguing late first-round option in rookie drafts.

  • Posted: 4/28/2017 11:01am ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge has been informed he will be released, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Although the Browns drafted from Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku last night, this news comes as a bit of a surprise and basically opens the door for the raw rookie to start right away if he shows enough in camp. The 31-year-old Barnidge is one year removed from a Pro Bowl nod and finished with 55 catches a season ago, so it shouldn't take long for him to find a new gig.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 2:10pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge racked up five receptions for a team-high 42 yards in the Week 16 game against the San Diego Chargers on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge was a giant disappointment this season from a fantasy perspective thanks to just one visit to the end zone. That touchdown came in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team's Week 17 opponent.

  • Posted: 11/28/2016 3:40pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (knee) tweaked his knee in Week 12 and was limited in his snaps, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge usually plays better with Josh McCown at quarterback, but the knee ailment obviously impacted his play. Barnidge has regressed this season, largely due to erratic quarterback play, and he should be viewed as a TE2 going forward.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 8:33pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge managed just one reception for 11 yards on three targets in the Week 12 game against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge was a Top 10 fantasy tight end in most formats last season, but he has been a complete bust this year. If you have stuck it out with Barnidge in your fantasy league you will need a replacement in Week 13 since he is on a bye.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 2:31pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge caught three passes for 23 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge has been pretty consistent so far this season but could lose some targets with Corey Coleman back in the lineup. Barnidge probably should be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 7:01pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge managed three receptions for 42 yards in the Week 8 game against the New York Jets. He was targeted seven times.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge has taken a big step back after his breakout performance last season. Now that Josh McCown is back from injury perhaps Barnidge will re-emerge as a TE1, but treat him more as a TE2 until further notice.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 1:48pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge caught six passes for 66 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge has still not been able find the end zone but has been posting solid numbers no matter which quarterback is throwing to him. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues and has more value in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 9:28am ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge has caught at least five passes in each of the last three games and has at least 57 yards in each of the games. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 6:22am ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) will play in Week 6's game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge was listed as questionable on the most recent edition of the injury report and took part in practice on a limited basis throughout the week. He should be viewed as a low-end TE1 regardless of who the quarterback is.

  • Posted: 10/14/2016 4:14pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 14, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge was limited during practice all week but should be able to play in Week 6. He has posted decent numbers no matter which quarterback is starting, which makes him a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 6:01pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge has a steady role in Cleveland's passing game and is a low-end TE1 against Tennessee in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/12/2016 2:25pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (forearm, hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge should be able to play in Week 6 even though he is limited this week. He has been a solid part of the team's passing game with 236 yards in five games. Barnidge should be a low-end No. 1 tight end no matter who starts at quarterback.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 6:48pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge picked up five receptions for 66 yards on six targets in the Week 3 overtime loss against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge was drafted as a Top 10 option at his position, but Sunday's game was the first time he resembled a TE1. With a young quarterback with a smaller passing radius, Barnidge should figure in prominently in future weeks.

  • Posted: 9/18/2016 3:00pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge caught four passes for 37 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Barnidge did not catch a pass in Week 1 but did catch four of his five targets this week. He will have a role in the passing game moving forward but may not be a weekly starting option for owners.

  • Posted: 8/2/2016 10:55pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (hernia) is on track to play in Week 1 at the Philadelphia Eagles, according to Browns tight ends coach Greg Seamon. Barnidge's work ethic was praised by Seamon, who noted Cleveland has a plan to get the tight end ready for opening day.

    Huddle Up: The injury has thrown up a summer hurdle for the tight end surprise of 2015 -- one of several signals that the encore won't go nearly as swimmingly.

  • Posted: 6/9/2016 12:07pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge said he will be ready for training camp despite undergoing sports hernia surgery last week. Barnidge said he had the surgery when he did so he wouldn't have to miss any time during the regular season.

    Huddle Up: A preventative measure by the 2015 breakout tight end, and a number of eyes will certainly be on him late next month as he enters camp as the Browns' only proven offensive weapon.

  • Posted: 6/2/2016 11:13am ET

    Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (hernia) underwent sports hernia surgery Thursday, June 2, and will be sidelined until at least the start of training camp, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: It's never good news when a player goes under the knife, but this is happening early enough that Barnidge should be at full go for the start of training camp. It also gives rookie Seth Devalve more reps as well.
