Until Devante Mays finds regular playing time with the Browns and puts up good numbers, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.
Mays was cut by the Browns on Monday, Nick Shook of the Browns' official site reports. Mays signed a reserve/future contract Jan. 1, but in the end he was waived to make room for fellow running back L.J. Scott. The Utah State product's last regular-season action came when he appeared in eight games for the Packers after being drafted by them in 2017, logging four carries for one yard.
Mays signed a reserve/future contract with the Browns on Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log. After being picked in the seventh round by the Packers in the 2017 NFL Draft, Mays suited up for eight games last season, gaining just one yard on four carries. He was released with an injury settlement before this campaign began and spent time on the Browns' practice squad. Mays will look for a depth spot in Cleveland's backfield, but he won't command many touches behind Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson.
Mays signed a contract to join the Browns' practice squad Tuesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Mays was drafted by Green Bay as a seventh-rounder back in 2017, but he was largely limited to special teams there and only notched one rushing yard on four carries when he was given a chance on offense. It's now possible he could get another chance to prove his worth in Cleveland should injuries strike either Nick Chubb or Duke Johnson.
Mays (hamstring) and the Packers came to terms on an injury settlement Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Mays spent the preseason dealing with a nagging hamstring injury and was ultimately waived/injured by Green Bay. The 2017 seventh-rounder is now free to look for a home elsewhere in the league.
Mays (hamstring) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log. Mays has been dealing with a nagging hamstring injury that prevented the running back from participating in any preseason games this summer. The 2017 seventh-rounder is now stuck on IR through the end of the league year, barring an injury settlement.
