  • Deshazor Everett: Released by Washington

    The Commanders released Everett (personal) on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    With the combination of Washington's need to shed salary cap after the acquisition of Wentz and Everett's offseason legal issues, this transaction was inevitable. A resolution on whether the 29-year-old safety will be able to resume his football career may not come for several months, so his status for 2022 is certainly in question.

  • Deshazor Everett: Dealing with injury

    Washington have released Everett (undisclosed) with a non-football injury designation, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Everett being cut by the Commanders comes with multiple layers of context. Not only is the team in need of more cap space, but Everett is also injured, and facing offseason legal issues that could impact his availability for 2022, if not his NFL career. It may be multiple months until clarity on Everett's situation arrives.

  • Commanders' Deshazor Everett: Faces manslaughter charge

    The Loudoun County (Va.) Magistrate's Office charged Everett on Tuesday with involuntary manslaughter stemming from his involvement in a Dec. 23 car accident, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

    He was charged after the Loudoun County Sheriff's department's investigation determined that he was driving at "over twice the posted 45-mile-per-hour speed limit just prior to the crash," which resulted in the death of his girlfriend, who was a passenger in his vehicle. Everett escaped the accident with non-life-threatening injuries, but still missed Washington's last three games of the season while he was on the non-football injury list. In a statement, his attorney said he plans to "vigorously defend Mr. Everett against these allegations," which suggests resolution on whether the 29-year-old safety will be able to resume his football career may not come for several months.

  • Football Team's Deshazor Everett: Placed on non-football injury list

    Everett (personal) was moved from the reserve/COVID-19 list to the non-football injury list Friday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Everett was discharged from the hospital Dec. 27 after he was the driver in a fatal one-car crash that killed his girlfriend. On Tuesday, Everett was placed in COVID protocols, but now that he has cleared them he has shifted to the non-football injury list.

  • Football Team's Deshazor Everett: Enters COVID protocols

    Everett (personal) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports, which was a result of testing positive for the virus, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

    Everett has been out since Week 15 due to a personal matter, and his availability for Sunday against the Giants was unknown. Now having entered COVID protocols, he has another hurdle to clear before potentially suiting up Sunday.

  • Football Team's Deshazor Everett: Discharged from hospital

    Washington head coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Everett (personal) has been discharged from a hospital after he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries suffered in a car accident Thursday, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Everett was the driver in a fatal one-car crash that killed the passenger in the vehicle, his 29-year-old girlfriend. Police are still investigating the matter, and Everett has yet to be charged with any crime for his role in the accident. Washington placed Everett on the reserve/non-football injury list Friday.

  • Football Team's Deshazor Everett: Moved to reserve/NFI list

    Everett (personal) was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Friday.

    The move comes as little surprise following news that Everett suffered serious injuries in a single-vehicle accident Thursday night. Though the safety's injuries are said to be non-life-threatening, a female passenger in the vehicle did not survive. Given that context, thoughts about Everett's potential return to action should be secondary to the tragic consequences of the accident.

  • Football Team's Deshazor Everett: Hospitalized after car crash

    Everett is "being treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries" at the hospital following a single vehicle accident Thursday night, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Everett figures to miss some time for Washington due to his injuries but overall appears to be physically stable as the driver of the vehicle. However, the lone passenger tragically passed away after being taken to the hospital.

  • Football Team's Deshazor Everett: Won't play Week 16

    Everett (personal) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

    The reserve safety will sit out his first game of the season after he was behind the wheel Thursday in Loudoun County (Va.) in a fatal one-car crash that killed the passenger of his vehicle, a 29-year-old woman, according to John Keim of ESPN.com. Everett, meanwhile, was treated for injuries that are considered serious but non-life-threatening. Authorities are still investigating the circumstances behind the crash, and the Washington organization plans to gather more information on the incident before providing an update on Everett's status.

  • Football Team's Deshazor Everett: Returns to practice

    Everett (undisclosed) is off the non-football injury list and practicing Tuesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Everett has passed his physical and is now eligible to begin getting work in at training camp. Washington may opt to ease the veteran safety back into a full workload, but it looks like there's no reason to be concerned about his status for Week 1.

  • Football Team's Deshazor Everett: Placed on NFI list

    Everett was placed on the non-football illness list Tuesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Everett will miss the start of Washington's training camp due to an undisclosed illness. He missed six games at the end of last season with a pectoral injury but it remains unclear if this current ailment is related.

  • Football Team's Deshazor Everett: Starts six games before pec injury

    Everett (pectoral) started six of his 11 games in 2020, recording 31 tackles (23 solo), four pass defenses and a forced fumble on 355 defensive snaps.

    Everett opened the season seeing nearly all of his work on special teams, after playing only 173 defensive snaps in 23 games between 2018 and 2019. He then moved into a starting job Week 6, taking over for a slumping Troy Apke at free safety. A week later, strong safety Landon Collins suffered a torn Achilles, opening up a spot for rookie Kamren Curl alongside Everett. The seventh-round pick became an IDP asset, while Everett averaged only 4.7 tackles in six starts before suffering a season-ending injury (pectoral) of his own. He'll turn 29 in February and has two seasons remaining on his contract, but there is some chance Washington releases Everett this offseason -- a move that would clear out approximately $1.4 million in cap space.
