Free agent Levine Toilolo visited the Lions on Tuesday.

The Lions are looking to add a tight end after parting ways with former first-round pick Eric Ebron last week. Toilolo nabbed 12-of-14 targets for 122 yards and a touchdown while backing up Austin Hooper in Atlanta last season. The 26-year-old would likely be looking at a similar backup/blocking role in Detroit.

Falcons released TE Levine Toilolo.

This comes after Toilolo agreed to a three-year, $12 million deal last offseason. The hulking 6'8, 265-pound blocking tight end will be designated as a post-June 1 cut, saving Atlanta $3.5 million against the cap. The Falcons will move forward with Austin Hooper as their primary tight end.
Mar 2 - 2:48 PM

Falcons re-signed TE Levine Toilolo to a three-year, $12 million contract.

Infamously nicknamed ToiLOLo by The Fake Football's Chet Gresham, the 25-year-old blocking tight end is a Stanford grad. Austin Hooper is expected to take over as the Falcons' primary pass-catching tight end this season.

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said he has opened negotiations with impending free agent TE Levine Toilolo.

"He’s done a really nice job of evolving into a tight end for us," Dimitroff said. We’re in the process of talking to him." Toilolo is nothing more than a blocker, but he would be a nice complement to Austin Hooper.

Levine Toilolo caught 3-of-4 targets for 69 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 6 loss to the Seahawks.

Toilolo out-targeted Jacob Tamme. The Seahawks forgot to cover him on his 46-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Despite the big day, Toilolo has only five catches in six games. He's not about to become a meaningful pass catcher for Atlanta's high-flying offense.

Falcons TE Levine Toilolo is on the Falcons' 53-man roster bubble.

Jacob Tamme and third-rounder Austin Hooper are both locks, leaving Toilolo to battle for a spot with D.J. Tialavea, Joshua Perkins and Arthur Lynch. Toilolo has made close to zero impact through three NFL seasons, catching only 49 passes. Just seven of those came in 2015. He needs to convince the Falcons he's worth keeping around as a blocker.

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure believes third-year TE Levine Toilolo has had an "impressive" camp.

TEs coach Wade Harman echoes the sentiment. "I think he's got a little more confidence going," Harman said. "I know he spent a lot of time in the offseason just working on his hands and just being confident that he can do it." Completely invisible through his first two NFL seasons — aside from some brutal drops — Toilolo caught three passes for 36 yards in Atlanta's preseason opener. Toilolo has never eclipsed 36 yards in a regular season game. Despite the supposed improvement, Toilolo isn't on the TE2 radar.

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure sees Levine Toilolo playing more of a complementary role in 2015.

Toilolo ran more pass routes than Rob Gronkowski in 2014 but only caught 31 balls for 238 yards. That's trainwreck status. Toilolo also struggled as a blocker. The Falcons' best course of action would be to add a tight end in free agency and slide Toilolo into a limited-snap role. Julius Thomas, Jordan Cameron, and Charles Clay are the top tight ends on the market.

Levine Toilolo caught two passes for 14 yards in the Falcons' Week 17 loss to the Panthers.

Mainly a blocker, Toilolo wraps up his sophomore season with 31 catches for 238 yards and two touchdowns. Some pegged Toilolo as a potential sleeper who was filling Tony Gonzalez's shoes, but Toilolo predictably was kept in an inline-blocking role. He'll come back to fill the same role in 2015. Expect the Falcons to try and find a pass-catching tight end for Matt Ryan this offseason.

Levine Toilolo caught four passes for 15 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Cardinals.

Toilolo hit his ceiling as he caught a 1-yard touchdown from Matt Ryan on the game-opening drive. The mountainous yet stiff tight end now has two touchdowns and 23 catches on the year.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 07:34:00 PM

Levine Toilolo caught 3-of-6 passes for 34 yards in Atlanta's Week 6 loss to the Bears.

The yards were Toilolo's most of the season, but all three of his missed connections were drops, two of them brutal. Toilolo hasn't scored since Week 1. He's miles from fantasy relevance in any format.

Levine Toilolo finished Week 5 without a catch.

The blocker was targeted twice and has no fantasy value.
Sun, Oct 5, 2014 05:18:00 PM

Levine Toilolo caught one pass for 12 yards in the Falcons' Week 4 loss to Minnesota.

Toilolo was targeted just two times. After the Falcons lost three starting offensive linemen to injury in this one, Toilolo was actually forced to play right tackle for much of the fourth quarter. He's on pace for a weak 32-276-4 line through four games. Toilolo is obviously not on the fantasy radar.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 08:41:00 PM

Levine Toilolo caught 2-of-2 targets for 25 yards in Atlanta's Week 3 win over the Bucs, also losing a fumble.

Toilolo nearly killed the Falcons' second drive by letting the ball get punched out from behind, but the Falcons got it back after Devin Hester forced a fumble of his own on Mark Barron's return. Toilolo wasn't targeted in the red zone this evening even though Atlanta scored 56 points. Toilolo is Joseph Fauria 2.0 for fantasy purposes.
