Bears signed TE Brody Eldridge to a reserve/future contract.

The former fifth-round pick of the Colts was briefly on the Bears' active roster earlier this season, but didn't get into a game. He'll likely be among the first few waves of cuts in Bears camp.

Bears released TE Brody Eldridge.

With Jay Cutler (concussion) in doubt, Eldridge's roster spot was needed for Josh McCown. The blocking tight end could be back with the Bears after Cutler gets cleared.

Bears signed TE Brody Eldridge.

He'll take RB Kahlil Bell's roster spot. A fifth-round pick in 2010, Eldridge was suspended the first four games of the season after getting popped for PEDs. A pure blocker, Eldridge's name won't often pop up on the stat sheet.

The Bears worked out free agent TE Brody Eldridge Tuesday.

A fifth-round pick in 2010, Eldridge served a four-game PED ban to begin the season. The Bears have one of the league's weaker tight-end collections, but Eldridge wouldn't be in for significant snaps if he landed a deal.

Rams waived TE Brody Eldridge.

Eldridge was claimed off waivers from the Colts in May, but handed a four-game PED suspension in July. A fifth-round pick in 2010, Eldridge has appeared in 27 games the past two seasons, but made just 14 catches for 84 yards. A pure blocker, he could draw interest once his ban is through.
Mon, Aug 27, 2012 04:14:00 PM

NFL suspended Rams TE Brody Eldridge four games for violating the league's PED policy.

A pure blocker, Eldridge was claimed off waivers from the Colts in May. He was set to compete with Matthew Mulligan for a spot as a blocking specialist behind Lance Kendricks and Mike Hoomanawanui. The Rams could keep Eldridge on the reserve/suspended list and decide whether to activate him in Week 5.

Rams claimed TE Brody Eldridge off waivers from the Colts.

Eldridge played guard and center at Oklahoma and was a first-team All-Big 12 pick as a sophomore fullback in Bob Stoops' offense. Purely a blocker, he'll compete for a roster spot with Mike Hoomanawanui behind Lance Kendricks.
Fri, May 18, 2012 05:13:00 PM

Colts waived TE Brody Eldridge.

Drafted in the fifth round as a blocking specialist in 2010, Eldridge tallied 14 receptions for just 84 yards in 27 games over the past two seasons. He could get picked up by a team looking for a strong run blocker at tight end.
Thu, May 17, 2012 01:42:00 PM

Colts TE Brody Eldridge has undergone surgery on his injured hand.

The Colts have yet to comment on the exact nature of Eldridge's injury, but he's a good bet to miss multiple games. It's bad news for a team that's also going to be without Dallas Clark for at least the next few weeks, and explains why TEs Mike McNeill and Anthony Hill were signed Tuesday. Jacob Tamme will start in Week 10.
Wed, Nov 9, 2011 01:16:00 PM

Colts TE Brody Eldridge left Sunday's loss to the Falcons with a hand injury in the first quarter and did not return.

With Dallas Clark (leg) also sidelined, the Colts may need to look for street help at the tight end position. Jacob Tamme was left alone to carry the load yesterday.
Mon, Nov 7, 2011 08:56:00 AM

Colts TE Brody Eldridge (ribs) will miss Week 9 against the Eagles, as he did not travel to Philadelphia.

Eldridge's strength is in his run blocking, and the former Sooner will be missed given that the injury bug has hit the Colts' backfield in a big way in recent weeks. Jacob Tamme is the fantasy tight to own in Indy with Dallas Clark (wrist surgery) on injured reserve.
Sat, Nov 6, 2010 05:55:00 PM

Colts TE Brody Eldridge left Monday's Week 8 game against Houston in the second quarter with a rib injury.

Eldridge had some big blocks early, though the bigger loss is his blocking in the goal line running game. His return is questionable.
Mon, Nov 1, 2010 10:52:00 PM

Rookie TE Brody Eldridge hauled in two passes for 32 yards against the Bills in Thursday's exhibition game.

Eldridge is supposed to be a blocking specialist, but he looked good making catches down the seam. The fifth-rounder won't be a fantasy factor. He looks like a keeper as a role player for Indy, though.
Thu, Aug 19, 2010 10:50:00 PM

Colts agreed to terms with fifth-round TE Brody Eldridge on a four-year, $1.953 million contract.

A guard and tight end at Oklahoma, Eldridge will stay at the latter position in Indianapolis. He'll be groomed in a Ben Hartsock-like in-line blocking role.
