Rhett Ellison Announces Retirement

New York Giants tight end Rhett Ellison announced his retirement on Monday after eight seasons in the NFL, the last three with the Giants. Ellison suffered a concussion on Nov. 10 of last season and didn't play in the final six games of the season, which played a part in his retirement. He caught 18 passes for 167 yards and one touchdown in 10 games in 2019. Ellison caught 67 passes for 674 yards (10.1 yards per catch) and four touchdowns in 40 games (36 starts) for the Giants. He was mostly known as a blocking tight end during his career. With Ellison now done with the game and Evan Engram unable to stay healthy, the Giants will likely be looking to upgrade the position this offseason.

Rhett Ellison Considering Retirement

New York Giants tight end Rhett Ellison (head) is considering retirement after missing the last six games of the 2019 season because of a concussion, according to three NFL sources. The 31-year-old has 67 catches for 674 yards and four touchdowns in 40 games with the Giants and also spent five years with the Vikings. He has a $7.18 million salary cap hit in 2020 with $5 million in savings and only $2.18 million in dead money if he's released or retires. Ellison's contract will need to be reworked if he decides to continue playing. A blocking-first tight end, Ellison is unlikely to have much fantasy appeal next season if he decides against hanging up his cleats.

Golden Tate, Rhett Ellison Could Be Salary Cuts

New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate and tight end Rhett Ellison could be salary cap cuts this offseason. Tate's 2020 salary isn't guaranteed because of his suspension for performance-enhancing drugs this year. The Giants could clear his $7.9 million salary off the books by cutting him, leaving only $2.3 million in dead money left. A restructure is the most likely, as rookie quarterback Daniel Jones needs all the targets he can get going into his second season. Ellison will be gone if head coach Pat Shurmur is relieved of his duties, and he might be gone anyway to clear $5 million off the books. Tate was WR2 in PPR leagues when both Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram were hurt, and the G-Men will likely want to keep him around for next season. Ellison played in only 10 games and had 18 catches for 167 yards and one touchdown. He's unlikely to find a starting job if he's on the open market.
