Jets released OT Stephon Heyer.
Heyer has appeared in at least 12 games each of the past three seasons, but apparently didn't have enough left in the tank to pressure embattled RT Wayne Hunter. It's a poor sign for the 28 year old's future that he couldn't even make it to final cuts on a team with such an unsettled line. Mon, Aug 20, 2012 01:12:00 PM

Date:

Jets agreed to terms with OTs Stephen Heyer and Ray Willis.

The Jets certainly have need for veteran depth with swinging gate Wayne Hunter at right tackle. Heyer and Willis are unlikely to be upgrades, however. Heyer has just nine starts over the past two years while Willis has yet to see NFL game action since 2009.

Patriots worked out free agent OTs Stephon Heyer and Brandon Keith as well as free agent G/C Jamey Richard.

Following Matt Light's retirement, the Patriots lack experienced depth at tackle. Heyer or Keith could be signed in case Marcus Cannon isn't ready for the swing role.

Raiders signed OT Stephon Heyer, formerly of the Redskins.

Heyer proved to be backup-caliber at best in Washington, often looking like a turnstile as defensive ends got into the backfield. If he starts games, Jason Campbell is going to feel like he's back in D.C. The Raiders also re-signed OT Seth Wand.

Free agent OT Stephon Heyer confirmed that he did not have any contract talks with the Redskins before the lockout.

Heyer believes he's "50-50" to re-sign, but the team's actions speak pretty loudly here. There's a good chance they just want to move on. Heyer isn't a very good player, and he's certainly not a good fit for zone-blocking.
Fri, Jul 15, 2011 02:02:00 PM

Free agent OT Stephon Heyer has shed 10-12 pounds this offseason after playing last year in the 330s.

Heyer also said his preference is to re-sign with the Redskins. "I noticed they didn’t pick up anybody [at tackle] in the draft," he said. "So, if they want me back and wanted me to fill that right tackle job, I would have no problem taking it." Heyer, 27, made five starts last year. Pro Football Focus charged him with five sacks allowed and graded him poorly across the board.

Redskins OT Stephon Heyer filled in with the first team at right tackle Wednesday with starter Jammal Brown (hip) nicked.

This confirms that Heyer isn't really in danger of being cut. Although he proved last season that he's not a starting caliber NFL tackle, the Redskins need to keep him around as insurance in a "swing" role.
Thu, Aug 5, 2010 01:37:00 PM

Comcast Sports Net Washington suggests OT Stephon Heyer could go from "2009 starter to 2010 training camp cut" following Saturday's trade for Jammal Brown.

Heyer's 23 starts over the past two seasons were an indication of the Redskins' desperation up front more than an accurate gauge of his ability. He could develop into a fine swing tackle, though, so the Redskins would be wise to keep him for depth rather than relying on Mike Williams as a bookend sub.
Sat, Jun 19, 2010 10:12:00 PM

Redskins re-signed restricted free agent OT Stephon Heyer to a one-year, $1.684 million contract.

A rare offensive lineman the Skins have actually developed to some degree, Heyer has racked up 28 starts in three seasons while shuttling between the tackle spots. The Skins will likely shore up Donovan McNabb's blind side with the No. 4 overall pick, making Heyer the favorite to start at right tackle.
Wed, Apr 14, 2010 04:15:00 PM

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan gave OT Stephon Heyer a vote of confidence, saying "Stephon has a lot of ability."

"I thought Heyer did some good things last year, and he was hurt," Shanahan said. "I think it's untapped ability, and if he's willing to work hard, I think he's got a chance to be a player. The question is, 'How hard will he work in this offseason to get to the next level?' And I'm hoping he does."
Sun, Mar 28, 2010 02:01:00 PM

The Redskins have assigned a second-round tender to restricted free agent OT Stephon Heyer.

Heyer was undrafted, so this was the only way the Skins could safely keep him. Though he hasn't proven a starting-caliber player at either right or left tackle, Heyer still has value as a swing tackle. The problem? The team's line is so weak that he'd be a definite starter if the season began today.
Wed, Mar 3, 2010 04:05:00 PM

Stephon Heyer is expected to stay at right tackle in 2010.

Heyer performed to mix results in 2009, though he held up much better on the right side. Veteran free agent Tony Pashos is rumored to be a target, so Heyer may have to fend him off to retain his starting job. The team is expected to address left tackle early in the draft.
Thu, Feb 11, 2010 03:37:00 PM

Redskins RT Stephon Heyer departed Sunday's game in the third quarter with an apparent knee injury but was able to return.

The Redskins played without the entire right side of their offensive line for a few plays. Will Robinson replaced Heyer at right tackle and Will Montgomery replaced Mike Williams at right guard just before the half.
Sun, Dec 27, 2009 10:26:00 PM

Redskins RT Stephon Heyer is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys after reinjuring his knee in Week 15.

Heyer is nothing special, but he's much better than backup Will Robinson. The Redskins have used 11 different offensive linemen this season and it's amazing Jason Campbell's head is still attached to his body.
Wed, Dec 23, 2009 10:40:00 AM

Redskins RT Stephon Heyer left Monday night's game with a knee injury and is questionable to return.

Heyer was questionable to play all week with the knee injury. Will Robinson will likely fill in, as the Redskins can't get anything going on offense.
