Yahoo's Charles Robinson would "expect" the Cardinals to look into free agent Jermaine Gresham following John Carlson's retirement.
That's "once (Gresham's) medicals check out." Gresham is recovering from March back surgery. It's unclear if Robinson is just spitballing, or passing along informed speculation. The top of the Cardinals' tight end depth chart is shaky, with former basketball player Darren Fells joining 2014 second-rounder Troy Niklas. Niklas' rookie year was marred by ankle issues.

ESPN's Coley Harvey reports free agent TE Jermaine Gresham’s future may impact the Bengals' draft strategy.

The Bengals remain interested in Gresham, who is recovering from back surgery. His health status could impact whether Cincinnati drafts a tight end to pair with Tyler Eifert. Gresham would likely need to accept a team-friendly deal to return.
Apr 22 - 5:45 PM

ESPN's Coley Harvey confirms the Bengals haven't ruled out re-signing free agent TE Jermaine Gresham.

The Bengals have yet to find a replacement for Gresham, and are interested in keeping him as a blocker to complement Tyler Eifert. Recovering from back surgery, Gresham could have to wait until after the draft to sign. Gresham is the best tight end remaining on the market.
Apr 10 - 5:49 PM

The Bengals haven't closed the door on re-signing free agent TE Jermaine Gresham.

Coach Marvin Lewis recently said Gresham is a man of "many moods," which doesn't suggest the Bengals are eager to have him back in the locker room. But if the team can't find a blocking tight end to pair with Tyler Eifert in the draft, bringing Gresham back at a reduced salary could be an option. He was close to signing with Oakland but that deal fell apart when the Raiders found out Gresham needed back surgery.
Mar 29 - 10:35 AM

The Buffalo News reports the Bills were interested in signing free agent Jermaine Gresham in addition to Charles Clay.

Buffalo backed off after it was revealed Gresham needed surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back on Thursday. Gresham and Clay are two different tight ends; Gresham is more of an end-of-the-line blocker, while Clay is a finesse "move" player. The Bills are trying to surround Matt Cassel with as much talent possible. Gresham has also drawn interest from the Raiders.
Mar 20 - 11:33 AM

Free agent TE Jermaine Gresham (back) will undergo surgery Thursday.

Gresham is dealing with a herniated disc in his back. The surgery is an obvious concern for his free agent stock, but there's a chance he'll be ready for training camp. Gresham will likely have to settle for a one-year deal when healthy.
Mar 18 - 7:57 PM's Ian Rapoport reports free agent TE Jermaine Gresham is nursing a back injury, and could have surgery on Thursday.

Per Rapsheet, Gresham's injury was "discovered in the free agent process." He'd supposedly be ready for training camp even if he goes under the knife. It explains why Gresham's free-agent market has been so quiet. Gresham appeared on his way toward a deal with the Raiders before talks stalled, presumably over his back. Gresham is the best tight end remaining on the market.
Mar 17 - 3:46 PM

The San Francisco Chronicle reports talks between the Raiders and free agent Jermaine Gresham are "dead for now."

Gresham was reportedly one of the Raiders' top targets, but the chatter has died down considerably in recent days. Although we fully support not overpaying Gresham, it's becoming less and less clear whom the Raiders are going to lavish their considerable cap space on as they try to reach the floor.
Mar 13 - 2:48 PM

The San Francisco Chronicle expects the Raiders to sign free agents TE Jermaine Gresham and NT Dan Williams.

Both visited Raiders headquarters on Tuesday night. Specifically, the story says Gresham is "close" to signing, while Williams is "expected" to join him. On day one of free agency, the Raiders landed C Rodney Hudson, TE Lee Smith, LB Malcolm Smith, and RB Roy Helu. And they're far from finished.
Mar 11 - 7:43 AM

Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports the Browns are interested in free agent Jermaine Gresham.

That's if the Raiders don't get a deal done first. Gresham would be a steep downgrade on Jordan Cameron, albeit one who is on the field more often. We're not sure what it means that two of the league's worst franchises are pursuing a player who never panned out in Cincinnati.
Mar 9 - 3:30 PM

Yahoo's Charles Robinson confirms the Raiders are targeting free agent Jermaine Gresham.

Although the start of free agency is still over 48 hours away, the Raiders have already whiffed on a number of their biggest targets. That means they're going to have to overpay for a host of Greshams as they look to reach the league's spending floor. Gresham would be absent from the fantasy radar in Oakland.
Mar 8 - 3:19 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Raiders have interest in free agent TE Jermaine Gresham.

The addition of Gresham would give Oakland an ability to field two-tight end sets, with Mychal Rivera in the "move" role and Gresham working on the line of scrimmage. At 6-foot-3, 242, Rivera is almost a complete non-factor as a blocker. Gresham may command Brandon Pettigrew money (four years, $16 million).
Mar 7 - 11:35 PM

WGR 550 Buffalo floats free agent Jermaine Gresham as a possibility for the Bills.

Reporter Joe Buscaglia isn't saying that Gresham has been linked to the Bills, only that such a move would make sense. Gresham has maxed out as a mediocre receiver, but is a competent, if not amazing, blocker. He'd be an upgrade on Scott Chandler, though that's not a high compliment. Most signs have pointed toward Gresham leaving Cincinnati.
Mar 3 - 2:45 PM

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr. believes free agent TE Jermaine Gresham will not re-sign with the Bengals.

The writing has been on the wall for quite some time. Coach Marvin Lewis was noncommittal when asked about Gresham at the Combine, and Dehner said Gresham's "act has worn thin" around the organization. The Bengals will lean on now healthy Tyler Eifert in the passing game and bring in a cheap option to help as a blocker. Gresham is Rotoworld's No. 4 available tight end.
Feb 28 - 1:01 PM

Coach Marvin Lewis acknowledged at the Combine that free agent Jermaine Gresham is at a "crossroads" with the Bengals.

Lewis was also wholly noncommittal about bringing Gresham back. "He's at a crossroads," said Lewis. "It's, what does Jermaine want next? When he commits to whatever he wants next, then things will work out." Per ESPN's Coley Harvey, "some around the team" were disappointed when a banged-up Gresham pulled himself out of two late-season games. The Bengals want Tyler Eifert to play a bigger role, and could replace Gresham's blocking on the cheap.
