Lions signed TE Matthew Mulligan.

Mulligan is a 32-year-old blocking tight end.
Apr 4 - 5:19 PM

Bills waived TE Matthew Mulligan.

TE Nick O'Leary has been promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. Mulligan's release caught the Bills' press corps off guard. He's been active for all 12 games, and started five as a blocker. The Bills were reportedly afraid of losing O'Leary, a sixth-round rookie, to another team.

Bills signed TE Matthew Mulligan.

Mulligan is a pure in-line blocking specialist. He'll have a chance to stick on a Bills team that figures to run one of the run-heaviest offenses in the league.

Free agents Matthew Mulligan and Adam Weber worked out for the Bears on Monday.

The Ravens worked out free agent TE Matthew Mulligan on Monday.

Patriots released TE Matthew Mulligan and waived C Braxston Cave.

Mulligan lasted all of three days on the active roster. Cave made it four. Mulligan caught eight passes in 16 games for the Rams last season. He'll look to latch on elsewhere as a run blocker.

Patriots signed TE Matthew Mulligan, formerly of the Packers.

He must've looked good in Monday's workout. Mulligan would be a nice addition for a team in need of a true in-line tight end after giving Jake Ballard the heave-ho at final cuts. He can run block and contribute on special teams.

Rams released TE Matthew Mulligan.

28-year-old Mulligan was due just $725,000, so the Rams really must not have liked his potential. He's a strong run blocker, but offers little else.
