Titans waived TE Visanthe Shiancoe.
C Kevin Matthews was re-signed in a corresponding roster move. Shiancoe's release is an indication Delanie Walker (concussion) will be ready for Week 15. Shiancoe played 27 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. Going on 33, Shiancoe is near the end of the line. Tue, Dec 10, 2013 05:10:00 PM

Titans agreed to terms with TE Visanthe Shiancoe.

With both Delanie Walker and Craig Stevens dealing with concussions, the Titans were low on bodies at tight end. Released by the Ravens in training camp, Shiancoe has made only four appearances since the end of the 2011 season. Shiancoe is just an emergency option, and shouldn't be used as more than a blocker if he's active for Week 14.

Ravens released TE Visanthe Shiancoe and waived OG Ramon Harewood.

Shiancoe signed late last month after Dennis Pitta's hip injury. He had been working with the starters a bit, but Ed Dickson (hamstring) has resumed practicing and Dallas Clark's tank isn't as near to "E" as Shiancoe's. The 33-year-old hasn't caught a regular-season pass since 2011. His career is running on fumes. Harewood started five games at left guard last season, but the Ravens have a long-term building block there now in Kelechi Osemele.

Visanthe Shiancoe has practiced with the starters over the last two days.

A week after getting signed off the street, Shiancoe has been thrust into a major role. Dennis Pitta (hip) is done for the year and Ed Dickson (hamstring) could miss most of the preseason. However, Shiancoe has always been an in-line tight end that failed to threaten linebackers and safeties in the passing game. His career-high for yardage in a season is 596, set back in 2008 when he was 28 years old. Shiancoe isn't going to work out as a "move" or "flex" tight end.
Tue, Aug 6, 2013 08:43:00 AM

The Baltimore Sun suggests Visanthe Shiancoe will play a role with the 2013 Ravens "similar to the one that Ed Dickson played last year."

Dickson was an in-line tight end in 2012, primarily blocking and playing limited snaps en route to 21 receptions for 225 yards (10.7 YPR). Dickson is taking Dennis Pitta's old role as the pass-catching "move" or "flex" tight end. In other words, don't expect 33-year-old Shiancoe to come into any fantasy value.

Ravens signed TE Visanthe Shiancoe to a one-year contract.

The move comes one day after Dennis Pitta's year-ending hip injury. Now 33 years old, Shiancoe is coming off a four-game, zero-catch season in New England after catching 36 balls for 409 yards and three scores in 2011 with Minnesota. He doesn't have much left, but could help Baltimore as a blocker, allowing Ed Dickson to take on Pitta's old duties. We're still not in love with the idea of leaning on any Ravens tight end in 2013 fantasy leagues.
Sun, Jul 28, 2013 03:27:00 PM

The Ravens are "considering signing" free agent TE Visanthe Shiancoe.

He would be their No. 3 tight end behind Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson. Now 33 years old, Shiancoe doesn't have a whole lot left in the tank but has generated some interest around the NFL. He worked out for the Bucs earlier this week, and on Friday watched Ravens practice seated alongside GM Ozzie Newsome.
Fri, Jul 26, 2013 08:28:00 PM

Free agent TE Visanthe Shiancoe is working out for the Bucs Tuesday.

The Bucs certainly need help at tight end, where their depth chart currently lists Luke Stocker as the starter and Tom Crabtree as the backup. We're just skeptical Shiancoe would contribute much at this point. He's 33 years old and played just 59 snaps last season.
Tue, Jul 23, 2013 09:01:00 AM

Seahawks worked out free agent TE Visanthe Shiancoe on Monday.

Shiancoe was cut by the Patriots last week in favor of Michael Hoomanawanui and Daniel Fells. The 32-year-old played in four games this season but failed to register on the stat sheet. Seattle is just updating their emergency list.
Mon, Dec 17, 2012 08:12:00 PM

Patriots waived TE Visanthe Shiancoe.

The Pats valued Shiancoe enough to stash him on injured reserve's designated for return list early this season, but not enough to keep him around for the stretch run. Rookie speedster Jeff Demps may have been a better use of the designation. Shiancoe has played just 59 snaps all season. Rob Gronkowski was given a 4-8 week timetable to return after undergoing surgery. It's been nearly four weeks.
Tue, Dec 11, 2012 06:46:00 PM

Visanthe Shiancoe played on 26-of-61 offensive snaps in the Patriots' Week 11 blowout of the Colts.

Shiancoe didn't record a catch or target. Even though his snaps figure to rise thanks to Rob Gronkowski's forearm injury, there's not much upside here. Aaron Hernandez (ankle) is expected back on Thanksgiving, Daniel Fells is a strong blocker and Julian Edelman will pick up Gronk's inside targets. Desperate owners need to look elsewhere.

Patriots activated TE Visanthe Shiancoe (hamstring) from injured reserve designated for return.

Shiancoe was eligible to return in Week 9, and New England had up until this upcoming Tuesday to make a decision on him. The activation could be a sign that Aaron Hernandez's (ankle) status for Sunday's game may be in question, but we haven't seen anything to dictate that at this point. Shiancoe has no fantasy value.
Sat, Nov 10, 2012 04:26:00 PM

Patriots TE Visanthe Shiancoe (hamstring, designated for return) has returned to practice.

Shiancoe is eligible to return from injured reserve after Week 8. He could be available to play next week, though that's far from a certainty. Shiancoe has no fantasy value behind Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.
Tue, Oct 23, 2012 05:50:00 PM

Patriots assigned TE Visanthe Shiancoe (hamstring) the "designated for return" tag on injured reserve.

Shiancoe has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since the early days of camp. Players who are designated for return must spend at least six weeks on injured reserve. The move comes on the same day New England signed TE Michael Hoomanawanui. There's no guarantee Shiancoe plays a snap for the Pats this season.
Wed, Sep 5, 2012 03:17:00 PM

Patriots TE Visanthe Shiancoe has missed the "last several weeks" with an undisclosed injury.

He's looking doubtful for Friday's preseason game. With Daniel Fells (leg) rounding back to health, Shiancoe's roster spot is likely in grave danger, though the Pats gave him $400,000 guaranteed. If Shiancoe manages to make the team, he'll be off the fantasy radar behind Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.
