Top Ryan Neal News

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Neal: Practices in full

    Neal (ribs) was a full participant at Friday's practice.

    Neal led the Bucs in tackles with eight (five solo) in Sunday's win over the Bears, but he also banged up his ribs in the process. After a limited session Thursday, Neal no longer appears slowed down by the issue. Thus, he is on track for Monday's matchup with the Eagles.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Neal: Limited at practice Thursday

    Neal (ribs) was a limited participant at practice Thursday.

    After he led Tampa Bay in tackles in Week 2, Neal's status for Week 3 now appears to be up in the air. He'll have two more chances to practice in full before Monday's game versus Philadelphia.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Neal: Leads team in tackles Sunday

    Neal recorded eight tackles (five solo), including one for loss, in the Buccaneers' 27-17 win over the Bears on Sunday.

    Neal followed up a solid six-tackle tally Week 1 against the Vikings with a team-high number of stops versus the Bears on Sunday. The veteran safety has allowed all four passes thrown his way in primary coverage thus far to be completed for 59 yards and a touchdown, but he's been a force in run support and should continue to have IDP relevance moving forward.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Neal: Six tackles in win

    Neal recorded six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Vikings.

    Neal was on the field for all 63 of the defense's snaps. Neal and the Bucs' secondary allowed Vikings' quarterback Kirk Cousins to throw for 344 yards -- 150 of those to 2022 Offensive Player of the Year Justin Jefferson -- but were able to limit Minnesota to just 17 points. They'll head home for Week 2 to face a Bears offense that coughed up two turnovers in their 38-20 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Neal: Joining Tampa Bay

    Neal and the Buccaneers agreed to terms on a one-year deal Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Neal will sign with Tampa Bay after spending the past four seasons in Seattle. The 27-year-old logged 66 tackles (45 solo), a sack and an interception last season while playing in 14 games. Neal will now look to provide solid depth behind Antoine Winfield and might even have an opportunity to compete for a starting role, as the Buccaneers currently lack depth in the secondary.

  • Ryan Neal: Becomes free agent

    The Seahawks have withdrawn the contract tender they had previously extended to Neal as a restricted free agent, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    As a result, the 27-year-old becomes an unrestricted free agent and can sign with any NFL team. In 14 games with the Seahawks last season, Neal recorded 66 tackles and a pick. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder shouldn't have much trouble catching on with another squad looking to add safety depth ahead of next month's draft.

  • Seahawks' Ryan Neal: Gets tender from Seahawks

    The Seahawks have extended a right of first refusal tender to restricted free agent Neal, ESPN's Brady Henderson reports.

    Should he sign it, the tender will pay Neal more than $2.6 million. With Jamal Adams suffering a season-ending knee injury in Week 1 last year, Neal played an expanded role on the back of the Seattle defense next to Quandre Diggs. Neal was in on a career-high 73 percent of the snaps and recorded one interception.

  • Seahawks' Ryan Neal: Sheds injury designation

    Neal (knee) is not on the team's Thursday injury report for Saturday's game against the 49ers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Neal hasn't played since Week 15 with the injury, and his return should bolster the team's secondary for the wild-card round. Coach Pete Carroll also said that Neal is "back and ready to go," as reported by Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle, which is confirmed by his lack of a designation on the team's final injury report of the week.

  • Seahawks' Ryan Neal: Limited at practice Wednesday

    Neal (knee) logged a limited practice session Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Neal missed the final three games of the regular season due to a knee issue that first popped up Week 13 versus the Rams. He didn't practice at all between Week 16 and 18, so the fact that he was listed as limited during Tuesday's walkthrough and again for Wednesday's practice session at least gives him a chance of returning for Saturday's wild-card contest against San Francisco. Neal's ability to play would be a huge boost for the Seahawks against the 49ers' explosive offense, and if the fifth-year safety does indeed take the field, Johnathan Abram would likely see a reduced role in Seattle's secondary.

  • Seahawks' Ryan Neal: Won't play Sunday

    Neal (knee) has been ruled inactive ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale against the Rams.

    Neal will finish the 2022 regular season with three consecutive absences due to a lingering knee injury. With Seattle in need of a Week 18 win over the Rams as well as a Packers loss to Detroit in order to make the playoffs, the 27-year-old could have to wait until the 2023 campaign before he suits up again. In his stead, Johnathan Abram figures to step in as the Seahawks' starting strong safety Sunday.
