Bengals' Josh Bynes: Finds new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes inked a one-year contract with the Bengals on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 30-year-old spent the past season with the Ravens, producing 46 tackles (23 solo), one sack, four defended passes and two interceptions across 12 regular-season games. Although Bynes logged a rotational role with the Ravens, he's expected to compete with Hardy Nickerson for the starting middle linebacker spot in 2020 for the Bengals.

Ravens' Josh Bynes: Musters up 46 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes recorded 46 tackles (23 solo), one sack, four defended passes and two interceptions across 12 regular-season games with the Ravens in 2019.

Bynes also appeared in Baltimore's only playoff contest, during which he made six stops (two solo). The 30-year-old signed with the Ravens in early October, and he averaged 3.8 stops per game through the remainder of the regular season while playing a rotational role. Bynes is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Ravens' Josh Bynes: Snags second INT of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes collected two tackles (one solo) as well as an interception in Sunday's 41-7 win over the Texans.

Bynes' second interception of the season came in the latter stages of the third quarter, picking off a pass over the middle intended for Texans' tailback Carlos Hyde. The pick was a boost to Bynes' fantasy box score, but it did little to decide the outcome of Sunday's lopsided win.

Ravens' Josh Bynes: Paces squad in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes tallied nine tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 49-13 win over the Bengals.

Bynes logged 46 of a possible 75 defensive snaps (61 percent), out-snapping both Patrick Onwuasor and Chris Board. It appears the 30-year-old has taken the starting inside linebacker role from Board, as Bynes has averaged 5.4 stops per game.

Ravens' Josh Bynes: Re-signs with Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes signed with the Ravens on Wednesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Bynes spent three seasons with the Ravens earlier in his career, but he has spent the last five years between the Lions and the Cardinals. The Ravens haven't found the right mix at linebacker yet, so they're hoping Bynes' veteran presence could be the missing piece.

Josh Bynes: Cut by Cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals released Bynes (thumb) on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Prior to injuring his thumb Week 12, Bynes was heavily utilized during Steve Wilks' sole season as the coach in Arizona, playing every defensive snap from Week 3 through the fateful season-ending issue. Overall, he racked up 75 tackles and two sacks in 11 games, but the output wasn't enough to keep him around as the Cardinals switch back to a 3-4 alignment under new defensive coordinator Vance Joseph.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (thumb) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bynes suffered a thumb injury during Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Chargers and will spend the remainder of the 2018 season on injured reserve. The 29-year-old was one of the Cardinals' most consistent defensive pieces, so his absence is likely to substantially hurt the team's defense. Gerald Hodges will serve as Arizona's starting middle linebacker going forward.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chargers due to a thumb injury, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bynes exited the Week 12 tilt against the Chargers during the second quarter. With Deone Bucannon (chest) inactive, the linebacker position could prove an area of weakness for the Cardinals if Bynes is unable to retake the field Sunday.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Records sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes logged three tackles (two solo), one sack and one pass defended during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Chiefs.

Bynes posted his second sack of the season during a Week 10 loss to the Chiefs and played a key role in holding Kansas City's offense to its lowest point total of the season. The starting linebacker could be in line for another strong defensive showing against the Raiders in Week 11.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Cleared for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (wrist) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Minnesota, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

After practicing on a limited basis in the first two sessions of the week, Bynes was a full participant Friday. With his health clear, he'll seek out double-digit tackles for the fourth time in six outings to start the season.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Limited practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (wrist) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

One of the residual effects of the Cardinals' dismal offense is plenty of action for their top defensive players. On the season, Cards hold down spots three through seven among NFL defenders in terms of most snaps on defense. Bynes is one of them and has parlayed the usage into 43 tackles and one sack. Until the offense gets going, he's a useful IDP, primarily due to the sheer volume of snaps.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Records sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes posted 11 tackles (nine solo), including a sack, and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Bynes has been a quality middle linebacker for Arizona, posting double-digit tackles in three of the team's five games. He's never recorded more than a single sack in a season, but he'll have a chance to do just that if he can get one more in the remaining 11 weeks. He'll look to keep up the strong play as the Cardinals aim to string together victories in Week 6 against the Vikings.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Posts 10 tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) across 74 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

Bynes recorded his second double-digit tackle performance this season, bringing his season total to 27 -- which ties him for eighth-highest in the league. He hasn't showed any signs of slowing down, as he managed to play in 100 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday. He'll look to replicate this performance Sunday against a weak Seahawks offensive line.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Logs 11 tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes logged 11 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 24-6 loss to the Redskins.

Bynes exploded onto the scene Sunday, recording nearly a third of his tackle total from last season. He'll look to continue the high level of play Sunday against the Rams.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Jumps on loose ball Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (undisclosed) made three solo tackles and recovered one fumble during Sunday's 27-3 preseason win over the Cowboys.

Bynes shook off a mystery injury and looked comfortable in his new role as middle linebacker. He likely won't play in Thursday's exhibition finale against the Broncos, but starter snaps during the regular season should propel Bynes into IDP relevance.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Practicing, still day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (undisclosed) participated in Sunday's practice but is still considered day-to-day, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bynes has been sidelined for nearly a week and a half with an undisclosed injury, and while he was able to return to the practice field Sunday, it looks like he's still not 100 percent. Expect Bynes to be closely monitored and eased back into his regular workload this week.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Sits out Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes did not practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The reason for Bynes' absence has not yet been revealed. Perhaps there's a minor injury that's keeping him on the sidelines, but if the Auburn product misses a string of practices, there will be justified concern moving forward. Consider him day-to-day until more information is provided.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Will play Mike LB in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Steve Wilks recently said Bynes will handle middle linebacker in the Cardinals' switch in defensive scheme from a 3-4 to a 4-3, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Bynes will line up between Will LB Deone Bucannon and Sam LB Haason Reddick, two of the Cardinals' last four first-round picks. A journeyman linebacker, Bynes previously earned a significant snap count in 2015 with the Lions, tallying 82 tackles on 78 percent of the defensive snaps. In the two outings (Weeks 12 and 13) in which he surpassed that usage with the Cards last season, he racked up 17 tackles, but Bucannon only logged five defensive snaps during that stretch. With Bucannon healthy, Bynes may struggle to post a considerable number of stops from game to game, but the prospect of a guaranteed gig still should be beneficial.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Re-signs with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals and Bynes (ankle) agreed to a three-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Networkreports.

The Cardinals opted to let veteran inside linebacker Karlos Dansby walk in free agency, leaving Bynes as the current candidate to take over in the starting lineup next to dollar linebacker Deone Bucannon. In the two games in which he received the most snaps last season (Weeks 12 and 13), Bynes posted a combined 17 tackles and one forced fumble, so the front office may have been confident that they had a competent in-house replacement for Dansby.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Expected to re-up with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (ankle) is in line to re-sign with the Cardinals when free agency opens Wednesday, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

With starters Karlos Dansby and Deone Bucannon set to hit free agency Wednesday, Bynes is needed as a possible replacement. In his seventh season, Bynes made 36 tackles, one sack and one interception while playing more than 20 defensive snaps in a game just four times.
