Saubert signed a one-year deal with the 49ers on Monday.

Over the course of nine regular-season games for the Texans in 2023, Saubert (who before that suited up for one contest with the Cowboys) caught all three of his targets for 12 yards. With San Francisco, Saubert will work in a depth role behind George Kittle, and in that capacity it's unlikely he'll see enough targets in 2024 to merit fantasy consideration.

Inactive for playoff loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-23

Saubert did not suit up for Houston's 34-10 playoff loss to Baltimore last Saturday. He finished the season three receptions on three targets for 12 yards over nine games played.

The Texans grabbed Saubert off the Cowboys' practice squad in response to a rash of midseason injuries at tight end. Houston still has Brevin Jordan and Teagan Quitoriano (groin) under contract and will likely make a push to bring back unrestricted free agent Dalton Shultz. As such, Saubert is unlikely to return to Houston for the 2024 season.

Limited to special teams Week 16

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-20

Saubert played all 25 of his snaps on special teams in the Texans' 19-16 overtime win over the Titans.

With Dalton Schultz (hamstring) returning to action after a two-game absence, Saubert dropped to third on the depth chart at tight end and saw his role on offense completely disappear. Even when he had been factoring into the mix on offense in recent weeks, Saubert recorded just one catch for five yards over 77 total snaps while serving mostly as a blocker during his time on the field.

Won't play Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-19

Saubert (coach's decision) is inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

The 29-year-old tight end seems to have fallen down the Texans' depth chart with Brevin Jordan returning to action in Week 11. Saubert has appeared in two games since signing with Houston in late October, playing a total of 55 snaps (36 offensive and 19 on special teams) and failing to record a single stat.

Top TE backup Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-06

Saubert was not targeted and played 12 snaps in Sunday's 39-37 win over Tampa Bay in Week 9.

Saubert was signed to Houston's active roster as both Brevin Jordan (foot) and Teagan Quitoriano (groin) were unavailable. There isn't much for backup tight ends after Dalton Schultz, who accounts 50 of the position group's 59 targets this season.

Joins Houston

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-31

The Texans signed Saubert from the Cowboys' practice squad to their active roster Tuesday.

The move corresponds with the Texans placing Teagan Quitoriano (groin) on injured reserve. Saubert joined the Cowboys' practice squad on Oct. 24, was elevated for Sunday's game against the Rams and played 14 snaps on special teams. He'll fill in as a depth tight end behind Dalton Schultz with Brevin Jordan (foot) expected to miss games.

Back to practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-30

Saubert reverted to Dallas' practice squad Monday.

Saubert didn't record any stats in Sunday's win against the Rams while playing 14 snaps on special teams. The 29-year-old just signed with the Cowboys' practice squad last week and will now wait for another chance to be elevated.

Promoted to active roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-28

The Cowboys elevated Saubert to the active roster Saturday.

Saubert joined the Cowboys' practice squad Tuesday after being released with an injury settlement by the Dolphins on Sept. 6. He had a tryout with the Steelers on Oct. 3, but ultimately landed in Dallas three weeks later. If he suits up for Sunday's contest against the Rams, he'll provide an additional depth piece at tight end alongside Luke Schoonmaker and Sean McKeon.

Headed to Dallas

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-24

The Cowboys signed Saubert to their practice squad Tuesday, Nick Harris of the team's official site reports.

Saubert signed with the Dolphins this past offseason, but he ended up suffering an undisclosed injury that led to his eventual release in early September. The veteran tight end out of Drake most recently played for the Broncos in 2022, and throughout his six-year NFL career, he's recorded 33 receptions for 280 yards and two touchdowns.
