  • Browns' Stephen Weatherly: Joining Cleveland

    Weatherly signed a one-year contract with the Browns on Monday, Anthony Poisal of the team's official website reports.

    Weatherly was traded by the Vikings to the Broncos last season and registered 22 tackles and 2.5 sacks across 15 total appearances. The 2016 seventh-round pick figures to garner a similar role during the 2022 campaign.

  • Broncos' Stephen Weatherly: Moves to COVID list

    Weatherly (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Weatherly was acquired from the Vikings in late October and could be unavailable for Week 17. He's filled a rotational role in the linebacking corps and has 14 tackles (eight solo) and 2.5 sacks in eight games for Denver.

  • Broncos' Stephen Weatherly: Traded to Denver

    The Vikings traded Weatherly, along with a 2023 seventh-round pick, to the Broncos on Saturday in exchange for a 2022 seventh-round pick, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Weatherly logged just nine tackles through the Vikings' first six games of the season. However, the Broncos' front seven was embarrassed by the Browns during their Week 7 matchup, so the 27-year-old edge rusher will likely have an opportunity to carve out a role if he can impress with his new team. Denver placed Micah Kiser (groin) on injured reserve to make room for Weatherly.

  • Vikings' Stephen Weatherly: Plays just 17 snaps Sunday

    Weatherly had three total tackles in Sunday's loss at Cincinnati.

  • Vikings' Stephen Weatherly: Listed as starting defensive end

    Weatherly is listed as a starting defensive end opposite Danielle Hunter on Minnesota's first unofficial depth chart of the preseason.

    Weatherly is competing with D.J. Wonnum for the starting job opposite Hunter, but both players should get plenty of snaps in a rotation. Weatherly previously was with the Vikings from 2016 to 2019, recording 67 tackles, 17 QB hits and six sacks in 49 games (seven starts). He then signed a two-year, $12.5 million contract with Carolina last offseason, but he was released in February after finishing the 2020 campaign with zero sacks and three QB hits in nine games (all starts).

  • Vikings' Stephen Weatherly: Heading back to Minnesota

    Weatherly (finger) is signing a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Vikings, including a $500,000 signing bonus, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Weatherly previously was with the Vikings from 2016 to 2019, recording 67 tackles, 17 QB hits and six sacks in 49 games (seven starts). He then signed a two-year, $12.5 million contract with Carolina last offseason, but he was released in February after finishing the 2020 campaign with zero sacks and three QB hits in nine games (all starts). Weatherly had season-ending finger surgery in November and should have plenty of time to recover before training camp, where he'll likely compete with D.J. Wonnum and Jalyn Holmes for backup DE snaps behind starters Danielle Hunter and Ifeadi Odenigbo. It's also possible one of the aforementioned backups challenges Odenigbo for a starting job.
