Top Akeem Spence News

  • Football Team's Akeem Spence: Signed by Washington

    Spence was signed to Washington's active roster Thursday.

    Spence provides the team with some much-needed help at defensive tackle with Jonathan Allen, Matthew Ioannidis and Tim Settle all hitting the reserve/COVID-19 list this week. After not appearing in any games this season, it's possible that the 30-year-old may be thrust into a starting role in Week 15 against the Eagles.

  • Patriots' Akeem Spence: Inks deal with active roster

    The Patriots signed Spence to the active roster Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    Spence was elevated from the practice squad last week, and now he's an honest member of the 53-man roster. The Patriots needed the depth at nose tackle, as both Byron Cowart (back) and Adam Butler (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

  • Jaguars' Akeem Spence: Heading to Jacksonville

    Spence signed a contract with the Jaguars on Friday.

    The 27-year-old was cut by the Eagles on Monday but only had to wait a few days before finding a new team. Spence had seven total tackles in six games with Philadelphia, and he should work in a rotational role at defensive tackle with Marcell Dareus (abdomen) moving to injured reserve.

  • Akeem Spence: Released by Eagles

    Spence was released by the Eagles on Monday, Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Spence's stint in Philly ends after seven games in which he recorded seven tackles through six contests. The veteran defensive tackle has been on four different teams over the past four seasons, but his experience alone could get him in with a team needing to bolster their defensive line.

  • Eagles' Akeem Spence: Heading to Philadelphia

    Spence signed a one-year contract with the Eagles on Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Spence had been without a team since being cut by Miami on Aug. 28. The 27-year-old played in at least 600 defensive snaps over the previous two seasons, collecting 81 total tackles, five sacks and a forced fumble in that span. Spence will provide the Eagles with depth on their defensive front in the wake of Malik Jackson's (foot) placement on injured reserve Tuesday.

  • Akeem Spence: Cut by Miami

    The Dolphins released Spence on Tuesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Spence is one of a slew of veteran cuts made by Miami on Tuesday, as the team takes the next step in an apparent transition toward youth. The seventh-year defensive tackle played 666 snaps across 16 games in Miami last season and should have little issue latching on as a situational pass rusher elsewhere in the league.

  • Dolphins' Akeem Spence: Ejected for unnecessary roughness

    Spence was ejected from Sunday's game against the Raiders for unnecessary roughness, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    Spence's penalty killed a Miami drive nearing the endzone, and the 26-year-old was ejected from the game. With William Hayes (knee) questionable to return, the Dolphins could be without two key defensive tackles for the remainder of Week 3's matchup.

  • Dolphins' Akeem Spence: Traded to Dolphins

    Spence was traded from the Lions to the Dolphins on Thursday in exchange for an undisclosed 2019 draft pick, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports.

    Spence recorded 39 tackles (19 solo) and three sacks while logging a career-high 661 snaps on defense. However, new head coach Matt Patricia likes to employ multiple defensive fronts and it appears Spence didn't fit the mold of a player Patricia wants along the defensive line. As a result, Spence will join a Miami front that lost the services of Ndamukong Suh this offseason, putting Spence in a good situation for playing time. The Lions restructured Spence's three-year deal earlier in the day, which has two years remaining on it as he heads to Miami.

  • Lions' Akeem Spence: Tallies three sacks in 2017

    Spence recorded 39 tackles, three sacks and one forced fumble over 16 games in 2017.

    Spence showed he can be a valuable asset as a situational pass rusher for the Lions, but he also frustratingly committed six penalties this term. While the Illinois product has never been of much utility in IDP formats, Spence could be headed for the largest workload of his career in 2018 if Haloti Ngata (biceps) either retires or leaves in free agency.

  • Lions' Akeem Spence: Sack in win

    Spence recorded two solo tackles and one sack in Saturday's win over the Bears.

    Spence has seen increased reps on defense ever since Haloti Ngata (biceps) was placed on injured reserve. Spence now has 2.5 sacks on the season, which puts him 0.5 short of tying a personal season-high. He'll look to add to that total Sunday against the Bengals.
