Browns claimed TE Chase Ford off waivers from the Ravens.

Ford was tendered with the Ravens in March, but was buried on the depth chart. It's questionable whether any team would have claimed him, but Cleveland will pick up his entire $1.67M salary. Ford should open training camp as the No. 2 tight end behind Gary Barnidge.
Apr 13 - 5:04 PM

Ravens waived TE Chase Ford.

So continues the Ravens' odd offseason approach to a deep reserve tight end. A restricted free agent, Ford was surprisingly tendered at the original-round, $1.67 million level. He signed his tender on March 24. He's no doubt thrilled the Ravens essentially killed his market by holding his rights hostage for a month before releasing him over 30 days into free agency. Ford's release is a sign the Ravens are happy with the fortifications they've made at tight end this offseason.
Apr 12 - 3:53 PM

Ravens re-signed TE Chase Ford to a one-year, $1.67 million contract.

Ford was a restricted free agent tendered at the original-round level. It was an extremely surprising move from a Ravens team that had Ford for only three weeks last season before he landed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. The Ravens have loaded up on bodies at tight end with Dennis Pitta falling out of the league, Nick Boyle suspended and Crockett Gillmore injured.
Mar 24 - 4:10 PM

Ravens extended an original-round tender to restricted free agent TE Chase Ford.

It's worth $1.67 million. Ford spent three weeks with the Ravens last season before landing on injured reserve. It's a surprising move from the Ravens, who have a glut of young tight ends and just signed Ben Watson. Crockett Gillmore's (back, shoulder) early-season status must be up in the air.
Mar 8 - 6:35 PM

Ravens placed TE Chase Ford on season-ending injured reserve with a shoulder injury.

Baltimore also waived WR Chuck Jacobs and signed OL Kaleb Johnson and WR Daniel Brown in corresponding moves. Ford opened the season with the Vikings, but was waived in early November. He did not play a snap for either team this year but contributed 23 catches for 258 yards and a touchdown for the Vikings last season.

Vikings waived TE Chase Ford.

Ford, 25, was a 2014 contributor, catching 23 passes for 258 yards and one score across 11 games, making five spot starts. With Kyle Rudolph healthy and after the selection of rookie MyCole Pruitt, Ford has tumbled to No. 4 on the depth chart. It wouldn't be a shock to see him claimed off waivers.
Wed, Nov 11, 2015 01:16:00 PM

Vikings declared TE Chase Ford, DT Sharrif Floyd, DE Justin Trattou, C Nick Easton, G Jeremiah Sirles, QB Taylor Heinicke, and CB Jabari Price inactive for Week 6 against the Lions.

Charles Johnson is active for Sunday's game, but he will operate as the Vikings' No. 4 receiver behind Mike Wallace, Stefon Diggs, and Jarius Wright.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune believes it is unlikely TE Chase Ford makes the final roster.

Ford's only chance would be if the Vikings keep four tight ends, which the Star-Tribune calls "unlikely." Ford showed well last year in a reserve role, and there are plenty of tight-end needy teams the Vikings could contact in search of a trade. If he is cut, Ford is unlikely to be without a home for long. 25-year-old Ford caught 23 passes for 258 yards and a touchdown last season.
Tue, Aug 25, 2015 11:06:00 AM

Vikings TE Chase Ford caught 1-of-2 targets for 22 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Dolphins.

Starting in place of injured Kyle Rudolph, Ford shared tight end duties with blocker Rhett Ellison, who finished with 47 yards on two receptions. Rudolph seems unlikely to be ready for the Vikings' season finale against the Bears.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 05:14:00 PM

Vikings TE Chase Ford caught 1-of-2 targets for four yards in the team's Week 11 loss to Chicago.

With Kyle Rudolph back to siphon playing time, Ford's brief "streamer" window has slammed shut. The only Vikings tight end who did anything against the Bears was third-stringer Rhett Ellison, who caught a seven-yard touchdown.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 04:33:00 PM

Chase Ford caught five passes for 66 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 9 win over the Redskins.

Redskins S Ryan Clark blew a coverage, allowing Ford to get wide open for an easy 20-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He now has 11 catches and 129 yards with that score over the last two weeks, but is on a bye and then Kyle Rudolph (groin) could be back.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 04:56:00 PM

Vikings TE Chase Ford (foot) is listed as probable for Week 9.

Ford will make at least one more start with Kyle Rudolph sidelined. Rudolph is targeting a Week 11 return.
Sat, Nov 1, 2014 07:06:00 PM

Chase Ford (foot) remained "limited" on Thursday.

Coming off a six-catch performance against the Bucs, Ford should suit up for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Ford isn't a legit TE2.
Thu, Oct 30, 2014 04:27:00 PM

Vikings TE Chase Ford caught 6-of-6 targets for 61 yards in Sunday's Week 8 win over the Buccaneers.

Filling in for Kyle Rudolph (sports hernia), Ford has at least given the Vikings a chain-moving presence over the middle, albeit without much playmaking ability. Ford will get another start in Week 9 against the Redskins. Rudolph is not expected to return until after Minnesota's Week 10 bye.
