  • Vikings' Curtis Riley: Catches on in Minnesota

    Riley is set to sign with the Vikings on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Riley has been in the league since 2016, taking snaps for four different organizations. His best year was 2018 with the Giants, when he recorded 75 combined tackles and four interceptions while appearing in all 16 games. He did a appear in a few games for Arizona in 2020, but was demoted to the practice squad and later cut in early October. Riley, who should be available by Week 9, will help provide depth to cover for the loss of Georgia Iloka, who was placed on IR last week after suffering a torn ACL.

  • Cardinals' Curtis Riley: Called upon to start Week 4

    Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph said Thursday that Riley will start during Sunday's game against the Panthers, Kevin Zimmerman of reports. Riley looks set to start at strong safety in place of Chris Banjo (hamstring).

  • Raiders' Curtis Riley: Plays in all 16 games

    Riley had 34 tackles (27 solo), one pass defensed and one forced fumble in 16 games this season. The 27-year-old filled a rotational role in the secondary for most of the season, but he did receive three starts, including Week 17 when he posted seven solo tackles and a forced fumble. Overall it was still somewhat of a disappointing season for Riley, as his playing time was limited despite Johnathan Abram (shoulder) landing on injured reserve after the season opener. Riley returns to free agency in March after a season of inconsistent defensive opportunities on a porous pass defense.

  • Raiders' Curtis Riley: Signs one-year deal with Oakland

    Riley is signing a one-year contract with the Raiders, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Riley went undrafted in 2015 and barely played until 2018, but he emerged as a 16-game starter for the Giants last season, piling up 75 tackles (63 solo), five passes defensed and four interceptions (including one for a TD). He was far less reliable than the stat line suggests, as Pro Football Focus charged him with the most missed tackles (23) of any defensive back in the NFL. The Raiders signed fellow safety Lamarcus Joyner to a much larger contract earlier this offseason, but it won't come as any surprise if he takes most of his snaps at slot cornerback, thus freeing up a spot for Riley as the free safety in nickel packages. From an IDP perspective, strong safety Karl Joseph offers the highest ceiling in the Oakland secondary.

  • Curtis Riley: Visits Bengals

    Riley visited with the Bengals on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Some teams have shown interest in Riley, though the young safety has been weighing all of his options before deciding on a final free agency destination. He's coming off a 2018 season that saw him record 75 tackles and four interceptions while starting all 16 games for the Giants. If he does sign with the Bengals he'll likely slot in as one of the team's starting safeties.

  • Giants' Curtis Riley: Strong third season

    Riley made 75 tackles, five passes defended, four interceptions and one touchdown across 16 games with the Giants in 2018. Riley appeared in only 11 games for the Titans across his first two NFL seasons, logging just 12 tackles during that stretch.

Riley is set to become a restricted free agent this offseason.

  • Giants' Curtis Riley: Injures wrist Sunday

    Riley suffered a wrist injury in Sunday's win over the Redskins, Jordan Raanan of reports. It's unclear what the severity of Riley's injury is. He wasn't limited in the game due to the issue. He should be considered questionable for Week 15 for the time being, with his practice status later in the week serving as a better indication of his ability to play.

  • Giants' Curtis Riley: Notches interception in win

    Riley recorded four tackles (three solo), one pass defended and one interception during Sunday's 38-35 win over the Buccaneers. Riley logged his second interception of the year during the Week 11 win. The 26-year-old continues to serve as an uncontested starter in the Giant's secondary, but his low weekly tackle volume makes him difficult to trust in IDP formats.
