Top Raekwon McMillan News

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Extended through 2022

    McMillan (knee) signed a one-year extension Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    McMillan suffered a torn ACL during training camp so will not take the field this season. It's possible that his role expands in 2022 if he proves fully healthy, though he was likely headed for a role primarily on special teams while also serving as depth among the team's linebacker corps.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Suffers torn ACL

    McMillan was placed on injured reserve Saturday after he suffered a torn ACL in a recent practice, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    McMillan missed his rookie season in 2017 due to a torn ACL, and he's now dealing with the same injury in his other knee. The linebacker signed a one-year deal with the Patriots during the offseason after he played mostly on special teams with the Raiders last year, but he won't be back on the field until at least 2022.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Will sign with Patriots

    McMillan is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Patriots on Friday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Though Washington was keeping tabs on McMillan during free agency, it appears the linebacker's heading to New England. McMillan compiled a career high in tackles (105) and had two forced fumbles as a rookie with the Dolphins in 2018, but he spent more time on special teams than defense in his lone Raiders campaign in 2020.

  • Raiders' Raekwon McMillan: Moving to Las Vegas

    McMillan was traded to the Raiders from the Dolphins on Saturday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    This is a bit of a shocking transaction given Miami lost possible starting middle linebacker Vince Biegel (Achilles) early in the preseason, leaving Elandon Roberts and Kamu Grugier-Hill as the only possible veteran fill-ins. It's also strange from the Raiders' perspective given the team just signed Cory Littleton to a three-year, $36 million contract this past offseason which would seemingly make the McMillan acquisition redundant. It's unclear what type of compensation was given up to acquire the 2017 second-round pick, but the 24-year-old will nevertheless be forced to compete for defensive snaps in 2020.

  • Dolphins' Raekwon McMillan: Competing to retain starting job

    McMillan (hamstring) will compete to retain a starting role during training camp, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    McMillan and Vince Biegel are considered the early favorites for the other linebacker spots up for grabs alongside locked-in starters Kyle Van Noy and Jerome Baker. However, the Dolphins more than occasionally deployed five or more defensive backs in 2019, a pattern which could once again lead to regular two-linebacker sets. In the event that McMillan, who still has to overcome his weakness in coverage, is unable to cement himself as the clear No. 3 option and instead splits reps with Biegel, it would significantly dampen his value in IDP formats for 2020.

  • Dolphins' Raekwon McMillan: Lands on IR

    McMillan (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

    With just two games remaining on the slate, it comes as little surprise that the injury suffered in Sunday's game with the Giants ends the 24-year-old's season. Andrew Van Ginkel saw a season-high 35 snaps in Week 15 and figures to see an uptick in playing time going forward.

  • Dolphins' Raekwon McMillan: Leaves with hamstring injury

    McMillan exited Sunday's game against the Giants with a hamstring injury.

    McMillan suffered the injury during the second half and is listed as questionable to return. Vince Biegel is in line to receive additional snaps, in the meantime.

  • Dolphins' Raekwon McMillan: Upgrades to full practice

    McMillan (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    McMillan appears back to full health after sitting out Week 11's divisional loss to the Bills. He was limited in Wednesday's practice. Barring any setbacks, expect the third-year linebacker to handle his usual workload against the Browns on Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Raekwon McMillan: Out against Buffalo

    McMillan (knee) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Bills.

    McMillan was limited in practice all week, so it's not too much of a shock to see him sit this one out after being considered a game-time call. Look for backup Vince Biegel to take on a heavy snap count as a result of McMillan's absence.

  • Dolphins' Raekwon McMillan: Will be game-time decision

    Coach Brian Flores said Friday that McMillan (knee) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's divisional contest against the Bills, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    McMillan has come on as a run stopper for the Dolphins in recent weeks, so if he were to miss Sunday's game against the Bills it would be a notable blow to the team's defensive front. The 2017 second-round pick practiced in a limited capacity to begin the week, and he'll have one more opportunity to upgrade to full participation Friday.

  • Dolphins' Raekwon McMillan: Nursing knee issue

    McMillan (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Since losing his rookie year to a torn ACL, McMillan has played every game since the start of the 2018 campaign. A potential absence for Sunday's game against the Bills affects fantasy owners in IDP leagues, as he's on pace for another 100-plus tackles this year. Keep an eye on his practice status over the next two days.

  • Dolphins' Raekwon McMillan: Leads team in tackles

    McMillan notched nine tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Redskins.

    McMillan's snap count remains a worry -- he played only 51 percent of snaps on defense Week 6 -- though he's shown well as a run stopper in two straight contests. The 2017 second-round pick will remain difficult to trust in IDP formats as long as Jerome Baker and Sam Eguavoen continue to eat into his workload.

  • Dolphins' Raekwon McMillan: Seeing less snaps

    The Dolphins may prefer Jerome Baker and Sam Eguavoen over McMillan at linebacker for their skills in pass coverage, causing McMillan to see less work so far this season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    This notion would certainly explain why McMillan has played just 79 defensive snaps through three games this season, while Baker and Eguavoen each played 72 snaps in Week 3 alone. McMillan has 11 total tackles through three contests and hasn't seen more than 51 percent of defensive snaps in a game yet in 2019, after consistently seeing more than 70 percent of snaps in a given game last season.
