Free agent H-back James Casey worked out for the Panthers on Tuesday.

A jack-of-all-trades type, Casey was an important role player for the Texans and Eagles from 2009-14, but got cut loose by the Broncos earlier this month.

Broncos released FB/TE James Casey.

Casey was active for three games, but played 19 snaps in an H-back role. The Broncos needed Casey's roster spot with LE Derek Wolfe returning from suspension.

James Casey is considered a fullback with special teams duties in Denver.

The versatile Casey caught 34 passes under Broncos coach Gary Kubiak when the two were in Houston together in 2012. Don't expect him to reach that mark this year. The Broncos want to expand Virgil Green's pass-catching role and also have Kubiak favorite Owen Daniels in town. Casey will do more lead blocking than catching.

Broncos signed TE James Casey to a one-year contract.

Casey spent the last two seasons in Philadelphia, but began his career with Broncos coach Gary Kubiak while the pair was in Houston. A versatile H-back type, Casey should lineup all over the field for Kubiak, but he is unlikely to see enough volume to be a fantasy contributor.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports free agent TE James Casey will visit the Bengals, Redskins and Jaguars.

Casey visited the Broncos on Thursday, and has also been linked to the Titans, Browns and Cardinals. With so many teams kicking the tires, Casey should have a new deal by this time next week.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports free agent TE James Casey will visit the Titans and Browns this week.

Casey has been popular since he was released by the Eagles last week, as he also has visits lined up with the Cardinals and Broncos. Casey is a proficient blocker and can play in the backfield, on the end of the line, or in the slot while also covering kicks on special teams. He'll have no trouble landing a job.

Free agent TE/FB James Casey will visit the Broncos on Thursday.

Casey, 30, would probably love to reunite with coach Gary Kubiak in Denver after playing for Kubiak's Texans from 2009-2012. Casey is a versatile H-back-type who can line up in the backfield and as a traditional tight end. The Broncos are expected to use the fullback much more under Kubiak.

Free agent TE James Casey will visit the Cardinals later this week.

The Cardinals don't feature tight ends in the passing game, but Casey's blocking expertise would be appreciated. Casey was scheduled to earn $4 million from the Eagles in 2015. He won't come close to that with his next contract.
Mon, Feb 23, 2015 02:32:00 PM

Eagles released TE James Casey.

The move clears $4.1 million in cap space. Going on 31, Casey is a solid blocker and special teamer, but was due $4 million in 2015. That's far too much for a No. 3 tight end. Casey should have little trouble latching on as a reserve elsewhere, but will have trouble clearing the $1 million barrier.
Thu, Feb 19, 2015 02:19:00 PM

Philly Mag’s Sheil Kapadia could see the Eagles moving on from TE James Casey this offseason.

Casey is a favorite of coach Chip Kelly and a solid contributor on special teams, but he's not worth the $4 million a year the Eagles are paying him. Stuck behind Zach Ertz and Brent Celek, Casey only played 14 percent of the Eagles' snaps last season, catching three passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns. If the Eagles cut Casey, his departure would open up snaps for second-year TE Trey Burton. Philly could also look to add tight end depth in the draft.

No. 3 TE James Casey's $3.985 million base salary becomes guaranteed if he's on the Eagles' roster as of March 16.

Casey only played 14 percent of Philly's 2013 offensive snaps, while Brent Celek handled 77 and Zach Ertz 41. Casey's role as a blocker did expand some down the stretch, but his price tag is awfully high for a theoretical third stringer. The Eagles may ask Casey to accept a sizable pay cut, or release him outright.
Sun, Feb 16, 2014 01:19:00 PM

Eagles TE James Casey has a $3.99 million base salary in 2014.

Casey saw limited playing time in an H-back role for the Eagles this season, finishing with just 168 offensive snaps. With both Zach Ertz and Brent Celek under contract in 2014, he'll likely need to take a pay cut to avoid being released. Casey will be no higher than the Eagles' No. 3 tight end if he returns.
Sat, Jan 25, 2014 07:10:00 PM

Eagles H-back James Casey has played just eight snaps in the season's first three games.

The Eagles handed Casey a three-year, $12 million contract with a $3.3 million signing bonus on the opening day of free agency. He's likely not going to see the field much unless one of Brent Celek or Zach Ertz gets injured.
Fri, Sep 20, 2013 11:03:00 AM

Eagles H-back James Casey didn't get on the field until kneel-down time in Monday night's Week 1 win over the Redskins.

So much for Chip Kelly using multiple tight ends. The Eagles were in 11 personnel (one RB, one TE, three WR) on 67-of-75 snaps, which meant almost no work for Casey and flex tight end Zach Ertz. Brent Celek is the starter and every-down player. Casey signed a three-year, $12 million deal that included $8 million guaranteed with Philly soon after free agency opened back in March.
