  • Titans' DeShone Kizer: Impresses at minicamp

    Kizer impressed during the Titans' OTAs and minicamp, Turran Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

    Kizer reportedly looked good with his mid-range throws and routes across the middle. He spent last season as the Titans' "quarantine QB" and worked with quarterback coach Pat O'Hara. The work has seemingly paid off, as he displayed quick decision-making during camp. He is now set to compete with incumbent backup Logan Woodside to be the No. 2 option under center.

  • DeShone Kizer: Cut by Las Vegas

    The Raiders waived Kizer on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The Las Vegas quarterback room became more crowded this offseason following the addition of Marcus Mariota and the team's decision to tender a contract to Nathan Peterman (elbow), rendering Kizer an expendable piece. Since serving as a 15-game starter for the 0-16 Browns in 2017, Kizer has appeared in three contests the past two years, with all coming as a member of the Packers in 2018.

  • Raiders' DeShone Kizer: No game appearances

    Kizer was active for four games but didn't play a snap during the 2019 season.

    The 24-year-old served as the team's No. 3 quarterback and was a healthy scratch through the first 12 games of the season, but he supplanted Mike Glennon for the backup job down the stretch. The increased role indicates Kizer was making a solid impression at practice, but he never ended up seeing the field with starter Derek Carr remaining healthy. Kizer is heading into the final year of his rookie deal in 2020, and he should have the upper hand over any newcomers in retaining the backup job entering training camp.

  • Raiders' DeShone Kizer: Jumps to No. 2 role

    Kizer supplanted Mike Glennon as the No. 2 quarterback on Oakland's roster Thursday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

    Kizer has been a healthy scratch for the Raiders all season, but he stands to be active against Tennessee on Sunday as the top backup to Derek Carr. As a result, Mike Glennon will likely serve as the team's reserve option going forward.

  • Raiders' DeShone Kizer: Healthy scratch Monday

    Kizer (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game against the Broncos.

    Kizer joined the Raiders on Sept. 1, but will have to wait at least another week to don the silver and black. With the Notre Dame product sitting Monday, Mike Glennon will be tasked with backing up Derek Carr.

  • Raiders' DeShone Kizer: Set to don silver and black

    The Raiders claimed Kizer off waivers Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Kizer was cut by the Packers after he failed to win the backup job, but found a team quickly Sunday. It will be an interesting dynamic in Oakland with four quarterbacks currently on the roster. One or two of Kizer, Nathan Peterman and Mike Glennon will surely be sent packing before next Monday's regular season game.

  • DeShone Kizer: Sent packing by Pack

    The Packers waived Kizer on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

  • Packers' DeShone Kizer: Mixed results to close preseason

    Kizer completed eight of 15 passes for 77 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Thursday night's 27-20 preseason win over the Chiefs. He also rushed once for 13 yards.

    Kizer entered the game after Tim Boyle led the Packers' first three offensive drives, finishing 3-of-6 for 18 yards and a touchdown. On Kizer's first series, he was intercepted at Green Bay's own 17-yard line, but he rallied with a 12-play, 81-yard drive immediately afterward, culminating with a one-yard touchdown toss to backup tight end Evan Baylis with three seconds left in the second quarter. Although it was a mixed performance from Kizer, who again didn't get consistent protection from his offensive line, he'll still hope he did enough this preseason to retain his second-string gig behind Aaron Rodgers. However, whether he or Boyle wins that job remains to be seen.
