Buccaneers' Ross Cockrell: Re-ups with Buccaneers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell signed a two-year, $2.11 million contract with the Buccaneers on Tuesday.

Cockrell signed with the Buccaneers in October and played 12 regular-season games (two starts) and all three playoff games. He didn't play any defensive snaps over the final two postseason contests. With Carlton Davis, Sean Murphy-Bunting and Jamel Dean all returning for 2021, Cockrell will take on a situational role in Tampa Bay's secondary once again.

Buccaneers' Ross Cockrell: Secures deal with Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers signed Cockrell to the active roster Tuesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Cockrell was expected to sign with the Giants back in August, but the 29-year-old cornerback refused to sign the tabled offer. He instead inked a deal with the Buccaneers' practice squad, and now he'll make his first appearance on the active roster. Cockrell played 14 games for the Panthers in 2019 and recorded 62 tackles, eight pass breakups and two interceptions while allowing a 68.6 passer rating when targeted.

Ross Cockrell: Deal with Giants falls through
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell didn't sign with the Giants on Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Cockrell was expected to reach a deal with the Giants and even underwent COVID testing and a physical, but the 29-year-old cornerback refused to sign the tabled offer Tuesday. It's unclear why this deal fell apart during negotiations, and it's especially puzzling because both parties had a vested interest in reaching an agreement due to cornerback Deandre Baker's ongoing legal issues. Regardless, Cockrell had a solid 2019 season and will likely make an NFL roster by the season opener if he chooses to play.

Ross Cockrell: In line to sign with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants are expected to sign Cockrell once he passes the necessary COVID testing and a physical, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Per Stapleton, Cockrell visited with the Giants on Saturday and must go through the usual testing protocol (test, test, off and test again, getting three negatives by the fifth day). Assuming the process goes off without a hitch, Cockrell will team up with James Bradberry -- his old teammate on the Panthers -- at cornerback. Cockrell may even earn a starting role due to the ongoing legal issues for Deandre Baker and the lack of experience otherwise in the group.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Enjoys comeback campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell finished the 2019 season with 62 tackles (48 solo) and two interceptions (on eight passes defended) in 14 games played.

Cockrell missed all of his first season in Carolina after suffering a gruesome leg injury, but returned last spring ahead of a comeback campaign. The veteran went on to start 11 games and only missed a pair of contests due to a quad problem. Overall, Cockrell matched his previous career high of 62 tackles and has now defended a respectable tally of 44 passes over his last four healthy seasons. That production should serve the 28-year-old relatively well as he now re-enters free agency.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Set to start Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Interim coach Perry Fewell said Cockrell played well during Sunday's loss to the Colts and will start Week 17 against the Saints, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Donte Jackson started all but one game he was healthy for this season entering Week 16, but he was relegated to a reserve role in favor of Cockrell versus New Orleans. Cockrell delivered 10 tackles, which is the first time in his career he recorded double-digit stops in a game.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Makes 10 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell made 10 solo tackles in Sunday's 38-6 loss to the Colts.

Cockrell has held a regular role as the Panthers' nickelback since Week 3, but he stepped into a starting gig on the outside Sunday with interim coach Perry Fewell benching Donte Jackson, who played zero snaps. With Cockrell parlaying the starting nod into his best tackle total of the season, Fewell indicated that Cockrell would likely remain in the lineup again for the season finale against New Orleans, per Max Henson of the Panthers' official site.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Full speed ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell (quadriceps) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Cockrell missed the last two games with this affliction, but it looks like he'll be ready for Sunday's matchup against the Redskins. The 28-year-old has a consistent role in the Panthers' secondary rotating between safety and cornerback, registering 27 tackles, four sacks and two pass breakups over 11 games.

November 24, 2019 12:00 PM
Panthers' Ross Cockrell: No-go for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell (quadriceps) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

It will be the second consecutive game missed for Cockrell as he's yet to make tangible progress in his recovery. Now that he's officially sidelined, Colin Jones and Javien Elliott are in line to see more snaps during Sunday's action.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Saints, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Cockrell sat out last week's loss to the Falcons, but he appears to have a shot at retaking the field against the Saints on Sunday. In the event that Cockrell were forced to miss any more time, however, his absence would be a blow to Carolina's depth at both cornerback and free safety.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell (quadriceps) did not practice Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Cockrell sat out Week 11's loss to the Falcons due to a quadriceps injury, and he hasn't yet made tangible progress in his recovery. He'll have two more opportunities to practice in some capacity before Sunday's contest against the Saints.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Won't face Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell (quadriceps) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Cockrell is nursing a quad injury suffered Week 10 against the Packers. The versatile cornerback and free safety will work to recover in time to retake the field for Week 12's divisional tilt against the Saints.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Misses another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell (quadriceps) did not practice Thursday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Cockrell appears to have sustained a quadriceps injury in Sunday's loss to the Packers, during which he made six tackles (four solo). He's now missed two straight practices, casting some doubt on his availability for Week 11's matchup against Atlanta. Count on Friday's final injury report of the week to illuminate Cockrell's chances of playing through his groin issue.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Eight stops in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell made eight tackles (five solo) and a pass breakup in Sunday's 34-27 win over the Jaguars.

Cockrell continues to have a hefty role on defense with an ability to play both cornerback and free safety. He leveraged that into a season high in tackles during this contest. Cockrell now has 17 tackles and three pass breakups over the last three games.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Starting versus Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell will slot into the starting lineup versus Houston on Sunday with Donte Jackson (groin) inactive, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Cockrell will suit up opposite James Bradberry during Sunday's tilt. He played 100 percent of snaps on defense Week 3 versus Arizona and notched six solo tackles. If Jackson's absence is an extended one, Cockrell could have limited value in IDP formats.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Gains medical clearence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers announced Monday that Cockrell (leg) was cleared for their offseason training program, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Cockrell suffered a left tibia fracture in training camp last year and finally gained medical clearance. The 27-year-old was solid during his last full NFL season in 2017, racking up 50 tackles (37 solo) and three interceptions in 16 games. Expect Cockrell to be a full-go for training camp and compete for a spot in the Panthers secondary.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers placed Cockrell (leg) on injured reserve Wednesday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Cockrell broke his left tibia and fibula during Monday's practice and underwent surgery to repair the leg. The 26-year-old is expected to miss the entirety of the 2018 regular season due to the unfortunate injury, with a long recovery process ahead. Kevon Seymour and second-rounder Donte Jackson should compete for a starting job at cornerback in Cockrell's absence.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Will undergo surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell, who broke his left tibia and fibula during Monday's practice, will undergo surgery to repair the leg and eventually be placed on IR as a result, Bill Voth of Panthers.com reports.

Cockrell will endure a lengthy road to recovery after suffering the brutal leg injury in training camp, and he's now likely set to miss the entirety of the 2018 regular season. Expect Kevon Seymour and rookie Donte Jackson to compete for a starting role at cornerback with Cockrell sidelined.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Diagnosed with broken leg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell, who was carted off the field during Monday's practice, has officially been diagnosed with a broken left leg, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Cockrell's upcoming long-term absence will lend Kevon Seymour additional reps with the first-team defense throughout training camp, while second-rounder Donte Jackson could also compete for a starting job at cornerback next to James Bradberry and Captain Munnerlyn. Cockrell's unfortunate situation could lead to him missing all of 2018 after he appeared in at least 15 games each of the past three years.

Panthers' Ross Cockrell: Suffers apparent leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cockrell injured his leg during Monday's practice, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Cockrell went down in the end zone following a collision with wide receiver Torrey Smith, yelling in pain that he believed his left leg was broken. Cockrell was carted off the field as practice came to an end, perhaps making his last appearance of training camp. An extended absence likely would give Kevon Seymour more chances with the first-team defense, though rookie second-round pick Donte Jackson could also be in the mix for a starting job. James Bradberry is locked in at the other outside cornerback spot, while Captain Munnerlyn figures to man the slot.
