Patriots claimed TE/FB Garrett Mills off waivers from the Bengals.

Mills was a fourth-round draft pick of the Pats back in 2006. An H-back type, he has an uphill climb to make a roster already deep in tight ends. OT Zach Roth was waived to create roster space.

Bengals waived TE/FB Garrett Mills.

Mills was trying to make the team as an H-back, but his fate was sealed when the Bengals added Bo Scaife to the tight end position. Brian Leonard is also a better receiver than Mills out of the backfield.

Bengals claimed TE/FB Garrett Mills off waivers from the Eagles.

Teams have long been intrigued by Mills' receiving skills for an H-back role, but he has just nine career catches. He's being stashed for the offseason.

Eagles waived TE/FB Garrett Mills.

Eagles signed TE/FB Garrett Mills off their practice squad.

Mills has soft hands and can contribute as an H-back, but will be a mere No. 3 tight end behind Brent Celek and Clay Harbor. He'll play sparingly.

Eagles signed TE Garrett Mills, formerly of the Vikings, to their practice squad.

The Eagles are very thin at tight end, with only fourth-round rookie Clay Harbor behind Brent Celek. Mills could eventually help as an H-back off the bench.

Vikings released TE Garrett Mills.

Originally a fourth-round pick by the Pats back in 2006, Mills was an H-back type playing behind Visanthe Shiancoe and Jim Kleinsasser for the Vikes.

The Vikings have kept Mills on the roster for two seasons, waiting for him to develop. It just didn't happen. They chose to keep six receivers instead.
Sat, Sep 5, 2009 09:14:00 PM

Vikings declared TE Garrett Mills, LB David Herron, OT Marcus Johnson, DE Otis Grigsby, WR Darius Reynaud, NT Pat Williams, DT Letroy Guion, and third QB John David Booty inactive for Week 17.

Tarvaris Jackson will start at QB against the Giants, but could be on a short leash. New York is resting a fair number of starters, but has all of its key pass rushers on the active roster. Jackson won't have RT Artis Hicks (triceps) in the starting lineup, and fill-in Ryan Cook is likely to struggle against Giants LE Justin Tuck. Don't be surprised to see Gus Frerotte.

Vikings TE/FB Garrett Mills left Sunday's game against the Bears with an apparent ankle injury.

Mills didn't have a catch or a carry before hitting the trainer's table.

Vikings TE/FB Garrett Mills led the team with three catches for 49 yards in Week 1 against the Packers.

Mills, a fourth-round pick of the Patriots in 2006, appears to have found his niche as a pass-catching H-back. He could lead Vikings TEs in catches this season, as Visanthe Shiancoe is hardly a weapon in the passing game.
Mon, Sep 8, 2008 10:25:00 PM

Vikings claimed TE/FB Garrett Mills off waivers from New England.

Mills, a 2006 fourth-round pick, is a good pass receiver and could fit in well as an H-back situational player in Brad Childress' West Coast offense.
