The Giants have agreed to terms with Manhertz, Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Manhertz, who turns 32 next month, has logged a total of 26 catches for 271 yards and two touchdowns over the course of 120 games since entering the NFL in 2016. While the 6-foot-6, 235-pounder is off the fantasy radar, he does offer value as a blocker and can contribute on special teams. In any case, Manhertz bolsters the Giants' depth at tight end, along with fellow newcomer Jack Stoll, with top pass-catching option Darren Waller considering retirement.

Dropped by Denver

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-08

The Broncos released Manhertz on Friday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.

After appearing in 16 of the Broncos' games in 2023, the team has decided to part ways with Manhertz. The veteran tight end has also spent time with Carolina, Jacksonville and New Orleans throughout his eight-year NFL career. He's now set to hit the open market after playing a total of 453 snaps last season (367 offensive and 86 on special teams).

Won't play Week 18

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-05

Manhertz (illness) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Las Vegas.

An illness has prevented Manhertz from participating in any capacity during Week 18 prep, and he's consequently been deemed unavailable for Denver's season finale versus the Raiders. The tight end will thus finish the season with two catches on four targets for 16 yards over 16 games. Manhertz typically plays from one-third to one-half of Denver's offensive snaps, and those could be absorbed by Nate Adkins on Sunday.

Returns to game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-03

Manhertz came back in late in the first half Sunday against the Texans after exiting with a shoulder injury earlier in the half, Zac Stevens of reports.

The backup tight end does not have a catch yet in the game. Manhertz has two catches for 16 yards and no touchdowns in 2023.

Questionable to return

Manhertz has a shoulder injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Texans, Zac Stevens of reports.

The backup tight end did not make a catch before exiting. Manhertz has two catches for 16 yards and no touchdowns in 2023.

Notches second catch of season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-15

Manhertz played 30 of the Broncos' 75 snaps on offense and turned his lone target into a six-yard reception in Monday's 24-22 win over the Bills.

The six-yard grab was just the second catch of the season for Manhertz. The 31-year-old has been active for all nine of the Broncos' games this season and has played at least 20 percent of the snaps on offense each time, but he's been deployed almost exclusively as a blocker when he's on the field.

Moving to Denver

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-03-13

Manhertz is slated to sign a two-year, $6 million deal with the Broncos, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Manhertz will join his fourth team as he goes into his eighth season. Primarily a blocking specialist, he's never caught more than six passes in a season. With Greg Dulcich and Albert Okwuegbunam ahead of Manhertz on the depth chart, expect him to continue a similar role with his new team.

Just six catches in 2022

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-22

Manhertz played in all 17 games during the 2022 regular season and caught six of eight targets for 42 yards.

The 30-year-old primarily served as a blocking tight end for the Jaguars once again in 2022, and he was rarely targeted in the passing game. Jacksonville enters the offseason with major question marks at tight end, since starter Evan Engram, Manhertz and fellow backup Dan Arnold are all scheduled to hit free agency. Luke Farrell is currently the only tight end under contract with the Jaguars for 2023.
