Nick Vannett reportedly signs a three-year deal with the New Orleans Saints

Former Broncos and current free-agent tight end Nick Vannett has reportedly signed a three-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Fantasy Impact

Vannett joins his fourth team entering his sixth year in the league, totaling 14 receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown in 15 games for the Broncos in 2020. The Saints have been the subject of much salary cap scrutiny, so seeing the team make a three-year offer to Vannett may surprise some folks throughout the league. With veteran tight end Jared Cook departing for the L.A. Chargers earlier this offseason, the Saints are expected to rely upon second-year tight end Adam Trautman as their TE1. Vannett will likely compliment Trautman as a TE2, particularly in 12 Personnel, as head coach Sean Payton prefers implementing a run-heavy scheme that features star RB Alvin Kamara.

Nick Vannett active for Week 4 matchup with Jets

Broncos tight end Nick Vannett is officially active for the team's Week 4 matchup with the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football. Vannett had been inactive in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact

Through the first two weeks of the season before being inactive in Week 3, Vannett had caught just one of his four targets for negative yardages. Barring injuries to Noah Fant and/or Jake Butt, Vannett has minimal fantasy value.
