Yancey was officially waived by the Jets on Tuesday. Yancey was originally re-signed by the Jets on the first day of 2019 after spending last season on the practice squad. The 2017 fifth-round pick hasn't played a regular-season game in his career. He logged 141 receptions, 2,344 yards and 20 touchdowns in 39 games in his college career for Purdue.
Yancey signed a future/reserve contract with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. Yancey, a 2017 fifth-round selection, joined the Jets' practice squad in mid December after spending his rookie season on the Packers' practice squad. The Purdue product left school with 141 receptions, 2,344 yards and 20 touchdowns in 39 games.
Yancey was released from the Packers' practice squad Tuesday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports. Yancey joined the Packers' practice squad a couple weeks ago because the team is dealing with numerous injuries at wide receiver, so this could be a sign that both Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are on track to return after the bye week.
Yancey agreed to sign with the Packers' practice squad Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports. Yancey was originally cut by the Packers on Sept. 1 after spending all of the 2017 season with the team. The Green Bay receiving corps is banged up with Davante Adams (calf), Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (concussion) all dealing with injuries. If any of the three miss Sunday's game against Detroit, Yancey could be a candidate to join the active roster.
The Packers waived Yancey on Saturday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. The writing was on the wall once the Packers selected three wideouts in April's draft, but Yancey will be a candidate to land back on the practice squad for a second consecutive year if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
