The New York Jets claimed tight end Clive Walford off waivers from the Oakland Raiders on Monday. With Austin Seferian-Jenkins signing with the Jaguars in free agency, New York was looking for a new tight end, as their only other tight end on the roster were Eric Tomlinson and Jordan Leggett. Walford had just nine catches for 80 yards in 13 games for Oakland last year and was passed up by Jared Cook. Walford could be the team's top pass-catching tight end in 2018, but with the quarterback situation unsettled, he'll be a fantasy backup, at best.
The Oakland Raiders are releasing tight end Clive Walford, according to a source. The former third-round pick is expected to find a new home in short order. Walford played in 13 games last year and had a career-low nine receptions for 80 yards and no touchdowns. It's unlikely that he'll land somewhere that will give him fantasy relevance heading into next season.
The Oakland Raiders placed tight end Clive Walford (concussion, neck) on Injured Reserve on Saturday and promoted tight end Pharoah Brown to the active roster from the practice squad in a corresponding move, according to a team spokesman. Walford had only nine catches for 80 yards and no scores in 2017 and was never on the fantasy radar as the third tight end in Oakland.
