Bears signed FB Tony Fiammetta to a two-year contract extension.

Fiammetta has resurrected his career with the Bears after sitting out the entire 2012 season. He's appeared in all 15 games and has graded out as the No. 14 fullback by Pro Football Focus. The extension will keep him signed through 2015.

Bears signed FB Tony Fiammetta.

Fiammetta spent 2012 on the Patriots' reserve/left squad list after his 2011 was derailed by a suspected concussion. Fiammetta was a difference-making lead blocker for the Cowboys in 2011 before going down. He's replacing TE/FB Evan Rodriguez, who was waived Monday morning.

Patriots reinstated FB Tony Fiammetta from the reserve/left squad list.

Fiammetta, 26, spent all of last year on the left squad list after his 2011 season was marred by a suspected concussion. Perhaps taking the year off did him some good. Fiammetta will now compete for a roster spot in Patriots camp.

Patriots placed FB Tony Fiammetta on the exempt/left squad list.

A bruising difference maker in parts of 10 games as the Cowboys' lead blocker last season, Fiammetta's year was marred by a suspected concussion. It's pure speculation, but it's likely one of the reasons Fiammetta is hanging up his cleats. The three-year veteran is still two weeks shy of his 26th birthday.

ESPN Boston believes Patriots FB Tony Fiammetta could be beaten out by Spencer Larsen for a roster spot thanks to Larsen's special-teams prowess.

Fiammetta flashed special lead-blocking skills in Dallas last season, but will have to earn his keep on special teams to crack the Patriots' 53. Provided he's healthy after missing a large chunk of 2011 with a mysterious illness, Fiammetta should be on someone's Week 1 roster, New England's or otherwise.

Patriots agreed to terms with FB Tony Fiammetta, formerly of the Cowboys.

Fiammetta, 26, has flashed difference-making ability as a lead blocker when healthy, although an extended absence due to a mysterious, possibly concussion-related illness cost him time in 2011. The Cowboys' running game was adversely affected. Fiammetta becomes the fourth fullback on New England's roster, joining Spencer Larsen, Eric Kettani, and Lousaka Polite.
Mon, Mar 26, 2012 03:47:00 PM

The Boston Globe reports the Patriots are "close" to signing free agent FB Tony Fiammetta.

Fiammetta was surprisingly non-tendered by the Cowboys after helping to revive a floundering rushing attack last season, but missed extensive time with an inner-ear issue that was likely related to a concussion. Fiammetta has a long history of concussions. He'd be an excellent lead blocker for the Patriots if he could stay on the field, however.
Mon, Mar 26, 2012 01:05:00 PM

ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys are working to sign restricted free agent FB Tony Fiammetta to a multi-year extension.

The Cowboys were originally expected to tender Fiammetta at the original-round level ($1.26 million), but will instead try to lock him up after he helped DeMarco Murray revive a stagnant rushing attack. A long-term is expected to be more cap-friendly for the Cowboys.

A team source tells ESPN Dallas FB Tony Fiammetta will be the only restricted free agent tendered a contract by the Cowboys.

QB Chris Greisen will join Kevin Ogletree in being non-tendered. Fiammetta will reportedly receive the $1.26 million tender, giving Dallas the right of first refusal. If Fiammetta signed an offer sheet the Cowboys decided not to match, they would receive a fourth-round pick as compensation.

Cowboys FB Tony Fiammetta (illness, questionable) is expected to play in Week 14 against the Giants.

Fiammetta was inactive the last three games with an undisclosed illness but is no longer experiencing symptoms. His presence should help DeMarco Murray, who checks in as Rotoworld's 13th rated fantasy running back this week.

Sat, Dec 10, 2011 09:17:00 PM

Owner/GM Jerry Jones revealed that the mysterious illness that caused FB Tony Fiammetta to miss the last three games was an inner ear problem.

Fiammetta is expected back this week as he no longer feels nauseous or dizzy. It's good news for DeMarco Murray, who is averaging just 3.35 yards per carry over the last three weeks.
Tue, Dec 6, 2011 10:27:00 AM

Cowboys FB Tony Fiammetta has been cleared to return from his undisclosed illness.

It's terrific news for DeMarco Murray, whose production has slowed considerably since Fiammetta went out of the lineup in Week 10. Fiammetta will practice Wednesday and resume playing on Sunday Night Football against the Giants.

Mon, Dec 5, 2011 06:09:00 PM

The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys don't expect FB Tony Fiammetta (illness) to return in Week 13, and are "unsure" of his status for the rest of the season.

DeMarco Murray's lead blocker was thought to be making progress toward a return after he was spotted on an exercise bike Monday, but it sounds like his mysterious illness has him in danger of landing on injured reserve. Since Murray became the lead back in Dallas, he's averaged an eye-popping 8.0 yards per carry with Fiammetta in the lineup, but just 3.4 without him.
Tue, Nov 29, 2011 10:28:00 PM

Cowboys FB Tony Fiammetta has resumed exercising, which he was previously unable to do while recovering from an undisclosed illness.

To this point, Fiammetta had become nauseous whenever he tried to do strenuous physical activity. On Monday, Fiammetta was spotted on an exercise bike. The Cowboys play their Week 13 game at Arizona. Fiammetta may not be immediately available, but it sounds like he'll be back for the final few games.
