WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Bucky Hodges | Free Agent TE

The Jets waives Bucky Hodges.

The 2017 sixth-round pick of the Vikings might have been an early-season contributor during Chris Herndon’s four-game suspension, but he’ll now be looking for a new team. Hodges shouldn’t have much trouble finding interest around the league.

The Jets signed tight end Bucky Hodges.

Hodges was selected by Minnesota in the sixth round last year, and he also spent time on Carolina's practice squad. The 6'6" former Virginia Tech tight end will compete for a roster spot with the Jets for 2018, and he might be able to carve out a nice role for a tight end position that does not have an incumbent starter.

The Vikings select Virginia Tech TE Bucky Hodges in the 6th round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Hodges is the classic split tight end, as NFL Network's Mike Mayock said he found just three plays where he was an in-line blocker last season, and he was on the opposite side of the run each time. It was thought that Hodges' size, speed, and athleticism would get him drafted closer to the 3rd round than the 6th round, so Minnesota could be getting a steal here. With Kyle Rudolph as a very good all-around tight end and clear starter, Hodges will have the opportunity to move around, and could be a nice red zone threat for Sam Bradford as a rookie.
