Date:

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

CBS' Jason La Canfora reported Weber's visit. A blocker, Mulligan appeared in 15 games for the Patriots last season. A former undrafted free agent, Weber was waived by the Bucs last August.

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

As previously reported, Jake Ballard was also brought in for a tryout. The Ravens desperately need another body at tight end, but neither Ballard nor Mulligan would be the answer.

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.

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

27-year-old Mulligan is an in-line blocker with some special teams value. The Patriots may have just been updating their emergency free-agent list.
Mon, Sep 2, 2013 05:47:00 PM

Packers released TE Matthew Mulligan.

The blocking specialist lost out to Andrew Quarless for those duties.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 02:59:00 PM

Packers signed TE Matthew Mulligan to a one-year contract.

A 28-year-old blocking tight end, Mulligan could help Green Bay in the Tom Crabtree role but offers less receiving ability. He can also play 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.
Fri, Mar 22, 2013 05:42:00 PM

Rams signed TE Matthew Mulligan to a two-year contract.

Mulligan, a 27-year-old blocking specialist, will replace outgoing free agent Billy Bajema in the role. Mulligan knows new Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer's scheme from their time together with the Jets. He has six career catches.
Mon, Mar 26, 2012 02:40:00 PM

Free agent TE Matthew Mulligan will visit the Rams and 49ers.

A blocking specialist, Mulligan played 40 percent of the Jets' offensive snaps last season, but caught just five passes for 58 yards. He won't be offered a role as a pass catcher on the open market.
Sat, Mar 17, 2012 04:36:00 PM

The Jets have decided against extending a qualifying offer to restricted free agent TE Matthew Mulligan.

Mulligan played roughly 40 percent of the Jets' 2011 offensive snaps, earning derision for too many penalties. The tender would have cost the Jets $1.3 million, a figure they are unwilling to pay for a backup blocking specialist. Mulligan could be brought back at a lower salary down the road.

Jets waived TE Matthew Mulligan.

The club has been pleased with blocking specialist Ben Hartsock behind starter Dustin Keller. Mulligan, 24, has practice squad eligibility remaining.
Wed, Sep 23, 2009 12:41:00 PM

Jets claimed TE Matthew Mulligan and P A.J. Trapasso off waivers from the Titans.

New York won't have to rely as heavily on converted lineman Wayne Hunter at tight end with Mulligan around to back up blocker Ben Hartsock. Trapasso is a rare touchdown-scoring punter and figures to overtake Reggie Hodges.
