02/12/18 - TE C.J. Fiedorowicz said he is considering retirement after suffering three concussions last season. "A dude knocked me out," he told the Northwest Herald in Illinois, referring to the 2017 season-opener. Fiedorowicz, a 2014 third-round pick out of Iowa, played in five games last season, catching 14 passes for 127 yards. He was coming off his best season as a pro, with 54 catches for 559 yards and four touchdowns in 2016. He signed a three-year, $21.5 million contract extension last August. Fiedorowicz said he will attend team workouts in early April and OTAs in mid-May before making his decision. He told the newspaper he might also consider just sitting out the 2018 season.

Fiedorowicz had a concussion in the preseason, but passed the mandatory baseline neurological exam before being cleared to play in the season opener.
Fiedorowicz recently signed a three-year, $21.5 million contract extension that included $10 million guaranteed.
