Bears TE Trey Burton had sports-hernia surgery earlier this offseason, HC Matt Nagy revealed on Wednesday. It's unclear if it was related to the groin injury that sidelined Burton for Chicago's playoff loss to the Eagles. Nagy said "the hope" is that Burton will be ready for the start of training camp in July. We'll keep an eye on him. Burton finished as PPR TE8 in his debut season with the Bears.

Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) is inactive for today's game against the Eagles. He was added to the injury report on Saturday, but we have no further details on his status beyond this week. Burton's absence leaves Adam Shaheen as Chicago's lead pass-catching TE. Note that Philly finished 4th in Adjusted Fantasy Points Allowed to TEs this season.

The Bears have added TE Trey Burton to the injury report and deemed him questionable for Sunday’s game against the Eagles with a groin injury. We’ll check his status Sunday afternoon.

The Bears are set to sign TE Trey Burton to a 4-year, $32 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a significant investment in a guy who's flashed potential. Burton has just 63 career catches, but 60 of those have come over the past 2 seasons. He posted lines of 2-41-1 and 5-71-2 in 2 games TE Zach Ertz missed this past year. We'll see how Burton fits in alongside 2017 2nd-rounder Adam Shaheen. Chicago has now added Burton and WR Allen Robinson for 2nd-year QB Mitchell Trubisky.

Eagles TE Trey Burton set season highs in targets (10), catches (7) and 65 yards in Sunday's loss to Washington. It marked his 2nd straight game with at least 9 looks and 5 receptions. There's some deep appeal to Burton in PPR leagues the rest of the way, with Philly getting little from WRs not named Jordan Matthews.

The Eagles signed Trey Burton.  Listed as a TE at Florida, Burton set career highs with 38 catches and 445 yards in 2013.  He looks more like a WR, though, at 6'2, 224 pounds with 4.6 speed.  And he might have a better chance at making the Eagles roster as a WR.  Regardless, we're intrigued to see what HC Chip Kelly can do with Burton.
