The Redskins waived Keyes on Tuesday. Keyes signed with the team last week ahead of their season opener to provide depth at linebacker. He was waived in order to beef up depth at wide receiver. The journeyman will now be forced to look for a new landing spot.
Keyes signed a contract with the Redskins on Wednesday. A career journeyman throughout his four years in the NFL, Keyes provides depth to Washington's linebacker corps and could contribute on special teams. The 25-year-old remains off the IDP radar heading into 2018.
Keyes signed a deal with the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports. The four-year pro has been a journeyman so far in his career, spending stints with the Chargers, Browns, Buccaneers and Falcons. Look for the 25-year-old to be a special teams contributor in Houston.
Keyes didn't receive a qualifying offer or minimum tender from the Browns and has become an unrestricted free agent, per the league's official transaction log. Keyes, who the Browns claimed off waivers in November, racked up four tackles in eight games with Cleveland in 2017 while exclusively serving in a special-teams role. The Boston College product is still only 25 years old and could have a number of suitors on the open market in need of extra bodies for training camp this summer.
Keyes was waived by the Chargers on Tuesday, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports. Keyes had a short stint in LA, playing only two games with the Chargers before being let go. The linebacker played exclusively on special teams and will now look for a similar role elsewhere in the league.
