Ravens & Bengals Interested In TE Rob Housler

Update:

Mike Jurecki reports that the Cincinnati Bengals are also interested in free agent tight end Rob Housler.

  • According to Jurecki, Housler would like to decide on his next by the end of the week.

The Bengals are likely to move on without Jermaine Gresham, which means they could use another tight end to compliment Tyler Eifert.

We’ll have more regarding Housler and his next team as the news is available.

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that there is “mutual interest” between the Ravens and free agent tight end Rob Housler.

However, the two sides have yet to reach any sort of agreement regarding a contract. According to Wilson, the two parties are expected to continue talks in the coming days.

  • Jeremy Fowler of ESPN previously reported that “mutual interest” exists between the Browns and Housler.
  • According to Fowler, the Browns have had internal discussions about potentially signing Housler. Although, nothing is imminent at this point in time and the two parties have yet to schedule a visit.

Housler previously visited with the Falcons a few weeks ago, but Atlanta ultimately elected to sign tight ends Tony Moeaki and Jacob Tamme to contracts.

Baltimore has a major need at tight end now that Owen Daniels has departed and signed with the Broncos. Housler is in the discussion for the best tight end still available in free agency, so we’ll have to see how this situation progresses over the next few days.

Housler, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Cardinals who played out his rookie contract with the team.

Many expected him to be a break out player in recent years, but Bruce Arians has never utilized the tight end position all that much in his offense, which could be one of the reason why his production was limited last year.

In 2014, Housler appeared in 15 games and caught nine passes for 129 yards receiving for the Cardinals. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 48 tight end out of 67 qualifying players.
