The Colts worked out free agent TE Randy McMichael back in May.
We missed this tidbit of news at the time of the workout, but NFL.com's Ian Rapoport mentioned it again Thursday following the news of Colts TE Weslye Saunders' eight-game suspension. McMike doesn't catch many passes anymore, but he's still an above-average blocker on the line of scrimmage. Thu, Jul 18, 2013 06:27:00 PM

Chargers released TE Randy McMichael.

McMichael, going on age 34, was owed $1.5 million in salary and bonuses. He finished last season with nine receptions for 51 yards, functioning mostly as a blocker. The Chargers intended to get younger under rookie GM Tom Telesco.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 11:26:00 AM

The Union-Tribune San Diego expects the Chargers to either release Randy McMichael or ask him to take a pay cut.

McMichael is due a $1.25 million salary in addition to a $250,000 roster bonus in the final year of his deal. The soon-to-be 34-year-old is a fine blocker, but he caught just nine passes for 51 yards last season, the lowest totals of his career. San Diego currently sits about $8 million over the salary cap.
Fri, Mar 1, 2013 06:07:00 PM

Chargers re-signed TE Randy McMichael to a two-year contract.

McMichael broke the news himself on Twitter. The Chargers had been hoping to get younger behind Antonio Gates this offseason, but were greeted by an extremely thin tight end free agent market. Three months shy of his 33rd birthday, McMichael made 30 catches for 271 yards in 2011. The Bolts could be on the lookout for a tight end in next month's draft, but they won't be the only ones.
Sat, Mar 17, 2012 04:30:00 PM

The Union-Tribune San Diego considers it "unlikely" the Chargers re-sign free agent Randy McMichael.

The Chargers are hoping to get younger at tight end. Thanks in part to Antonio Gates' foot injury, McMichael caught 30 passes for 271 yards last season, but was called on primarily to block. He'll turn 33 in July.
Mon, Feb 27, 2012 01:01:00 PM

Randy McMichael caught four passes for 29 yards in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

McMichael continues to be a low-upside outlet for Philip Rivers in place of Antonio Gates. In three starts this season, McMichael is averaging 3.6 catches for 35 yards with no touchdowns. Move along, especially with Gates possibly returning after the bye.
Sun, Oct 9, 2011 08:07:00 PM

Randy McMichael caught three passes for 25 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

McMichael was a complete non-factor until he went down with an apparent hand injury early in the fourth quarter. But then he caught two balls for 27 yards upon his return, making his final line look reasonable. Still, McMichael was used as a blocker much more than a receiver. Antonio Gates' owners in need of a replacement must look elsewhere.
Sun, Oct 2, 2011 07:44:00 PM

Randy McMichael left Sunday's game against the Dolphins in the fourth quarter with an undisclosed injury, but quickly returned.

McMichael was writhing in pain and looked to be clutching his right hand after a running play. He had just one catch for negative-two yards before leaving. Antonio Gates owners need to move on, even though McMichael looks to be OK.
Sun, Oct 2, 2011 06:56:00 PM

In the seven games that Antonio Gates has missed over the last two seasons, Randy McMichael has averaged 2.4 catches for 27.1 yards with two total touchdowns.

At age 32, McMichael is a shell of the highly-athletic pass-catcher he was during his Miami days. Even though Philip Rivers likes to throw to his tight ends in the red zone and McMichael will see a full complement of snaps whenever Gates sits, we need to keep expectations in check. "McMike" is just a desperation TE1 play when starting.
Wed, Sep 28, 2011 10:27:00 AM

With Antonio Gates (foot) sidelined, Randy McMichael caught four passes for 51 yards in Sunday's win over the Chiefs.

McMichael was targeted five times, with the lone miss coming on a crucial and ugly drop in the fourth quarter. The veteran appeared to have some gas left in the tank, taking a crossing pattern 26 yards in the second half. Gates' owners looking for insurance could do worse, but the upside is capped by McMike's 32-year-old body.
Sun, Sep 25, 2011 07:29:00 PM

Chargers agreed to terms with TE Randy McMichael on a one-year, $910,000 contract.

32-year-old "McMike" will return as Antonio Gates' backup after catching 20 passes for 221 yards and two TDs off the bench last season. He's lost most of his field-stretching skills and will be a weak fantasy option if Gates goes down again.
Tue, Jul 26, 2011 08:09:00 PM

Randy McMichael hauled in all five targets for 55 yards against the 49ers in Week 15.

The receptions and yards are easily season highs. McMichael has zero after-the-catch ability at this stage of his career, but his hands are still outstanding. He reeled in a one-handed catch and found plenty of room down the seam with Vincent Jackson drawing defensive attention. McMichael isn't a great bet to repeat the performance in Week 16.
Thu, Dec 16, 2010 11:49:00 PM

Randy McMichael (hamstring, probable) returned to a limited practice Friday.

McMike was held out of early-week practices, but appears on track to take Antonio Gates' (feet) starting spot against the Colts on Sunday night. Owners desperate at tight end should still look for healthier alternatives.
Fri, Nov 26, 2010 06:03:00 PM

Chargers TE Randy McMichael (hamstring) was held out of practice Wednesday.

McMike was noticeably upset on the sideline after pulling his hamstring in last week's win over the Broncos. Assuming Antonio Gates (feet) is out on Sunday Night Football, Chargers tight ends are best left avoided in fantasy.
Wed, Nov 24, 2010 05:22:00 PM

Coach Norv Turner expects TE Randy McMichael (hamstring) to be available against the Colts in Week 12.

McMichael was sore Tuesday, and he'll be limited in practices throughout the week. There's going to be a high risk of aggravation Sunday, so McMichael isn't going to be a great fantasy play. Kory Sperry won't be worthy of a waiver addition this week.
