Previous 25 Notes Next 25 Notes
05/25/17 - Wes Saxton, S Alabama, Undrafted
LB Wes Saxton signed with the Bills on Thursday. He has played only one game in his career, in 2015 for the New York Jets, and has been a practice squad player for both the Jets and Washington Redskins.

05/25/17 - Charles Gaines, Louisville, Browns
CB Charles Gaines was released by the Buffalo Bills.

05/24/17 - C.J. Uzomah, Auburn, Bengals
TE C.J. Uzomah worked on the rehab field Tuesday because he is not yet healthy.

05/23/17 - Devin Smith, Ohio St, Jets
WR Devin Smith is officially a victim of the Jets' second-round hex. The third-year receiver was waived with the injured designation on Monday, several weeks after suffering his second torn ACL since December 2015. Smith cleared waivers on Tuesday and will be on the Jets' injured reserve for 2017. The back-to-back knee injuries have severely clouded the NFL prospects for Smith, a deep threat whom the Jets selected in the second round of the 2015 draft out of Ohio State. But he had just nine catches for 115 yards as a rookie, when he missed time in training camp due to broken ribs and a punctured lung and recorded one catch for 20 yards last season. With Smith out for the season, the Jets will have none of their five second-round picks from 2010 through 2016 on the roster.

05/23/17 - *David Irving, Iowa St, Undrafted
DE David Irving is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL performance-enhancing drug policy. According to multiple reports, Irving informed the league he would appeal and believes there is "evidence" that will clear him. Irving had four sacks and led the Cowboys with 26 quarterback pressures in 2016. Irving signed a one-year deal as an exclusive rights free agent for 2017 and can become a restricted free agent at the end of the upcoming season.

05/22/17 - *Matt Jones, Florida, Redskins
RB Matt Jones was not at the first organized team activities session this week. Jones, a third-round pick in 2015 and the starting running back at the beginning of last season, was not active after Week 7 in 2016. The Redskins also drafted a running back this year (Oklahoma's Samaje Perine). Fumbles have overshadowed Jones' contributions during his first two seasons. He has eight fumbles (six lost) on 243 carries during 20 NFL games. That includes one inside the 5-yard line last Oct. 23 at Detroit -- a game the Redskins lost 20-17 that ultimately cost them a playoff berth. "That's something that Matt Jones will have to answer," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. "This is a voluntary deal, as we all know. I can't force the issue on anybody. If he's disgruntled in any way, shape or form, it's news to me."

05/22/17 - *Todd Gurley, Georgia, Rams
RB Todd Gurley is looking to put the sophomore slump in 2016 behind him. Gurley rushed for 1,106 yards as a rookie but tailed off to 885 yards last year. "Obviously, just want to be able to not have the season we had last year," Gurley said. "Like I said, I just work hard every day and then just come with the mindset of just trying to get better at one little thing each day." He is hoping a new head coach and offensive system gets him untracked. "Obviously, this is a new system and just the big thing -- even though we coached it a little bit last year -- but just a lot more detail," Gurley said. "'We, not me,' just putting the team first. I felt like we did that in the past. Like I said, this coach, he's harped on attention to detail and being situational masters."

05/16/17 - B.J. Dubose, Louisville, Vikings
DE B.J. Dubose was waived by the Vikings on Tuesday. Dubose, 25, was drafted by the Vikings in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft but never appeared in any games with the team. He played his college ball at Louisville.

05/12/17 - Marcus Mariota, Oregon, Titans
QB Marcus Mariota's recovery is still on track, the Titans say, despite the fact that he has yet to do any full speed running. Coach Mike Mularkey downplayed the need for Mariota to do so this early in the offseason, now 4 1/2 months removed from surgery on his broken right fibula that required a plate to be inserted into the leg. "He's jogging right now. It's still early. It's mid-May, so there's no rush to do it," Mularkey said of Mariota running full speed.

05/11/17 - Cornelius Edison, Portland St, Undrafted
C Cornelius Edison was released by the Chicago Bears on Thursday.

05/11/17 - Paul Lasike, BYU, Undrafted
FB Paul Lasike was released by the Chicago Bears on Thursday.

05/09/17 - Terrence Magee, LSU, Undrafted
RB Terrence Magee was released by the Seahawks on Tuesday.

05/09/17 - *George Farmer, USC, Undrafted
RB George Farmer was released by the Seahawks on Tuesday.

05/04/17 - Cedric Thompson, Min, Dolphins
S Cedric Thompson was released by the Minnesota Vikings one day before the start of the team's rookie camp. Thompson, who signed a futures contract with Minnesota in January, was a fifth-round selection of the Miami Dolphins in the 2015 draft. The 24-year-old has yet to play in an NFL regular-season game.

05/02/17 - Jake Rodgers, E Wash, Falcons
T Jake Rodgers was waived by the Panthers on Tuesday. Rodgers, 25, spent time on the Panthers' and New York Giants' practice squads over the past two seasons.

05/01/17 - Troy Hill, Oregon, Undrafted
CB Troy Hill was suspended for the first two games of the 2017 regular season for violating the NFL's policy on substance abuse. Hill will miss the first two games of the regular season but will be able to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games. He is eligible to return for the Week 3 matchup against the Washington Redskins. An undrafted free agent out of Oregon, Hill appeared in 12 games (four starts) for the Rams last season and registered 40 tackles.

04/29/17 - *Randy Gregory, Nebraska, Cowboys
DE Randy Gregory of the Cowboys, already on suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, tested positive for the seventh time, according to media reports. Gregory, 24, was tested on Feb. 21 and on March 2 and was reportedly informed that he had tested positive for marijuana. He has since been uncooperative with NFL officials trying to discuss the situation. In January, Gregory was suspended for at least a year following additional positive tests.

04/24/17 - Tre Jackson, Florida St, Patriots
OL Tre' Jackson was waived after he failed a physical. Jackson, 24, was claimed by the Rams off waivers last week after being let go by the New England Patriots. The 6-foot-4, 320-pound Jackson missed the entire 2016 season because of a knee injury. He started nine of 13 games played for the Patriots as a rookie after being selected in the fourth round of the 2015 draft out of Florida State.

04/18/17 - Tre Jackson, Florida St, Patriots
OL Tre' Jackson was released by the New England Patriots. Jackson, 24, played in 13 games with nine starts at right guard as a rookie in 2015. He spent the entire 2016 season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list with a knee injury.

04/18/17 - Matt Lengel, E Kentucky, Undrafted
TE Matt Lengel signed with the New England Patriots after being an exclusive rights free agent. Lengel, 26, was signed by the Patriots to the 53-man roster from the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad on Nov. 2, 2016. Lengel played in six games with the Patriots in the regular season and all three postseason games, including Super Bowl LI. He finished the regular season with two receptions for 22 yards.

03/21/17 - Damiere Byrd, S Carolina, Undrafted
WR Damiere Byrd will undergo surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee on Thursday. He told the team he sustained the injury while working out on his own. Panthers head team physician Pat Connor will perform the procedure at Carolinas Medial Center.

03/17/17 - Justin Coleman, Tennessee, Undrafted
CB Justin Coleman, an exclusive rights free agent, signed his contract with the Patriots. Coleman, 23, originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Vikings out of Tennessee on May 6, 2015. The 5-11, 190-pound Coleman played in 20 games with three starts over the last two seasons with the Patriots, recording 29 total tackles, eight passes defensed and one fumble recovery.

03/06/17 - Gerald Christian, Louisville, Cardinals
TE Gerald Christian was among five players released by Buffalo. Christian spent a brief time on Buffalo's active roster last season, appearing in three games as he moved back and forth from the practice squad.

03/01/17 - David Parry, Stanford, Colts
DT David Parry finds his roster with the Colts spot up in the air after his recent arrest on multiple charges in Scottsdale, Ariz. Parry was arrested on suspicion of robbery, auto theft, criminal damage, resisting arrest and driving under the influence. It has also been alleged that he used slurs and threatened police officers during the incident. A fifth-round draft pick by the Colts in 2015, the former Stanford defensive lineman has started every game his first two seasons in the league and has registered 49 tackles with four sacks.

02/24/17 - DeAndre Carter, Sac St, Undrafted
WR DeAndre Carter signed a two-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers, the team announced Friday. Carter, 23, stood out among a group of players who worked out for the new 49ers' coaching staff and scouting staff earlier this week, according to the Sacramento Bee. The native of San Jose, Calif., attended California State Sacramento, where he appeared in 41 games throughout his four-year collegiate career (2011-14) and finished with 207 receptions for 2,760 yards and 35 touchdowns.
