  • Raiders' Duke Shelley: Signs with Raiders

    The Raiders agreed to terms with Shelley on Thursday.

    The 2019 sixth-rounder is coming off a 2022 campaign with the Vikings in which he recorded 31 tackles and an interception in 11 games. With Las Vegas, Shelley has a chance to earn steady snaps in a cornerback corps that also includes David Long, Nate Hobbs, Brandon Facyson, Amik Robertson and Sam Webb.

  • Vikings' Duke Shelley: Starting role down the stretch

    Shelley posted 31 tackles (23 solo) and an interception over 11 games during the 2022 regular season.

    Shelley opened his first campaign with Minnesota in a limited role on special teams, and he did not even appear in six of the first eight games. However, he stepped up into a starting role with cornerback Cameron Dantzler (ankle) sitting out all but two of the team's final nine regular-season games. In the process, Shelley logged a career-high eight passes defended over that span, including the first pick of his career in Week 18 against Chicago. He also posted six more tackles and another pass defended while playing every defensive snap in the Vikings' wild-card loss to the Giants. Shelley is now set to become an unrestricted free agent for the second year in a row.

  • Vikings' Duke Shelley: Starting Saturday

    Shelley is in line to start at cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson in Saturday's matchup with the Giants, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Shelley is getting the start in place of Cameron Dantzler (ankle). As a result, he will presumably see a bigger snap count than usual. Also, Kalon Barnes, Chandon Sullivan and Kris Boyd could see some extra snaps providing depth in the secondary.

  • Vikings' Duke Shelley: Has key pass breakup

    Shelley played three snaps on defense in Sunday's win over Buffalo but had a key pass breakup in the end zone on the final series in overtime.

    Shelly was pressed into action when Akayleb Evans left with a concussion. It's a side note to a wild game, but the little-used Shelley likely saved the game by breaking up a touchdown pass intended for Dawson Knox. He could have a larger role next week if Evans is out.

  • Duke Shelley: Waived by Chicago

    The Bears waived Shelley on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Shelley made the initial 53-man roster but was let go one day later following a plethora of waiver claims. The 2019 sixth-round pick saw an expanded role in each of his first three seasons with the Bears and registered career highs in tackles (37), pass defenses (three) and defensive snaps (385) in 2021.

  • Bears' Duke Shelley: Possibly on roster bubble

    Shelley may not have a slot cornerback role with both Kyler Gordon and Tavon Young potentially ahead of him on the depth chart, Park Hurley of reports.

    Shelley saw his snaps increase in each of his three years with the Bears. However, the team brought in Gordon and Young in the offseason, making it possible Shelley is left off the regular-season roster.

  • Bears' Duke Shelley: Returns from injury

    Shelley (heel) participated at OTAs last week, Alyssa Barbieri of USA Today reports.

    Shelley missed six of the final seven games of 2021 due to the heel injury, but he's back on the field for OTAs in Chicago. The 25-year-old is a favorite to start at cornerback after posting a career-high 37 tackles and three passes defensed last season, though he's still looking for his first career interception.

  • Bears' Duke Shelley: Inactive for season finale

    Shelley (heel) was inactive in Week 18 and ended the season with 37 tackles and three passes defensed.

    Although he posted the highest tackle total of his three-year career, Shelley was a very inconsistent fantasy producer. Should he be able to stay atop the Bears' depth chart at cornerback, he'd have potential as a solid floor option in IDP leagues. He's signed through the 2022 season, so he could find himself playing for his second NFL contract next year.

  • Bears' Duke Shelley: Won't play in finale

    Shelley (heel) is inactive Week 18 against the Vikings.

    Shelley was back in practice in a full capacity this week, but that won't be enough to prevent him from missing his fifth game out of the Bears' last six contests. Cornerbacks Thomas Graham and Artie Burns would be candidates to see extra snaps in his stead.

  • Bears' Duke Shelley: Full go Wednesday

    Shelley was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

    The cornerback was forced to miss Week 17 while dealing with a heel injury, but he'll return to the secondary for the Bears' season finale versus the Vikings on Sunday. Shelley has missed five of the last six games while dealing with injuries, limiting him to just 66 total snaps since the team's Week 10 bye.

  • Bears' Duke Shelley: Out for Sunday

    Shelley (heel) is out Sunday against the Giants.

    Shelley's absence Sunday will be his fifth in six games after he initially dealt with a hamstring injury. The third-year pro's absence will leave the Bears down a starting corner. Artie Burns will likely now step into that role.
