Darqueze Dennard: Won't sign with Jags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard no longer plans to sign with the Jaguars, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

The two parties reached a verbal agreement last week but apparently couldn't close out a deal. Dennard thus remains an unrestricted free agent, coming off a 2019 campaign in which knee and hamstring injuries limited him to nine games. The 2014 first-round pick struggled to earn snaps early in his career, before emerging as a solid slot corner for the Bengals the past three seasons.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Headed to Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars will sign Dennard, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Dennard, who the Bengals took 24th overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, was limited to nine games and 37 tackles last season. He'll now look to engineer a bounce-back campaign in 2020, while bolstering the Jaguars' secondary in the process.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Limited to nine games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard had 37 tackles (25 solo) and five passes defensed in nine games this season.

The 28-year-old spent the first six games of the season on the PUP list with a knee injury and missed an additional contest with a hamstring issue. He is without an interception over the last two seasons, though he did have two forced fumbles in 2018. Dennard signed a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Bengals last spring and is poised to return to free agency in March.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (illness) is active for Sunday's tilt against the Patriots.

Dennard was initially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Patriots, but he's now set to take the field. He'll draw his usual start at cornerback across from William Jackson.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Managing illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots due to an illness, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

The veteran cornerback was able to practice fully Thursday but his status for Week 15 is in doubt due to the illness. Tony McRae or B.W. Webb figure to have an increased role should Dennard be unable to play.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Nearly reaches double-digit tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard registered nine tackles during Sunday's 17-10 loss to Oakland.

In his third appearance of the season, Dennard logged 93 percent of the defensive snaps and almost led the team in tackles. It's not certain he'll continue to see heavy playing time, but he could be worthy of IDP consideration if he does.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Shakes off injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

With the help of Week 9's bye, Dennard began the practice week at full speed. He's only played one game this season, but the 2014 first-round pick logged 70 defensive snaps in the contest, recording five tackles and two pass breakups. Dennard is slated for a starting role Sunday against the Ravens with Dre Kirkpatrick (knee) trending toward a third straight absence.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams in London, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Dennard spent the first six games of the season on the PUP list with a knee injury, and he returned to action last Sunday against the Jaguars only to suffer the hamstring injury. The 28-year-old didn't practice this week as the Bengals are once again shorthanded at cornerback with Dre Kirkpatrick (knee) also sidelined.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Doubtful for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Zac Taylor said Thursday that Dennard (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Rams, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Dennard appears to have picked up a hamstring injury Week 7 versus the Jaguars, the severity of which has put his availability for Sunday's game against the Rams in jeopardy. With Dre Kirkpatrick nursing a hyperextended knee, Dennard's absence would be a notable blow for Cincinnati's secondary.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Unable to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Dennard was activated from the PUP list last Friday, and he managed to suit up Week 7 against the Jaguars despite managing a knee injury. He now appears to be nursing an unrelated hamstring issue. Dennard will have two more opportunities to resume practicing before Sunday's contest against the Rams.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Returns from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (knee) was activated off the PUP list Friday.

Dennard spent the first six games of the season on the PUP list due to the knee injury, but he's good to go for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The Bengals are in dire need of the help at cornerback with William Jackson (shoulder) and Dre Kirkpatrick (knee) ruled out.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (knee) will begin practicing Wednesday.

Dennard is on the PUP list, so he's able to begin practicing Wednesday. The Bengals appear ready to deploy Dennard for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. His presence is needed, too, since Dre Kirkpatrick (knee) and William Jackson (shoudler) are both expected to sit out. Dennard, a 2014 first-round pick, made 68 tackles and six pass breakups last year.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Targeting Week 7 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (knee) is trending towards retaking the field Week 7 versus the Jaguars, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Dennard will be eligible to return to practice and game action after the conclusion of Week 6, and he appears have made strong progress in his recovery from May's arthroscopic knee surgery. When back in action, Dennard will provide Cincinnati's secondary with a much-needed boost.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Remains on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (knee) is on the PUP list to begin the regular season, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Dennard had arthroscopic surgery on his knee in May, and initially he was expected to be ready for the start of the regular season. This now means that he cannot play or practice for the first six weeks of the season.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Lands on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (knee) was placed on the PUP list Friday, Tyler Dragon of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Dennard underwent a minor knee scope in May and isn't quite ready for training camp. The 27-year-old should be ready for the regular season since he expects to be cleared in the next couple of weeks.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Limited during minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (knee) was limited to rehab work during mandatory minicamp, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

There was hope that Dennard, coming off minor knee surgery, would be back in full order for minicamp. While it's possible his limitations were precautionary, he'll now turn his focus to returning to 100 percent healthy before training camp in July.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Has minor knee procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard recently underwent a minor scope on his knee, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

The team knew that Dennard may have required further treatment on his knee when it signed him in March, so this news isn't quite a surprise. The procedure shouldn't have an impact on his outlook for 2019, as the Bengals are hopeful that Dennard can return for mandatory minicamp in mid-June. The Michigan State product had a solid 2018 season, racking up 68 tackles (54 solo) and forcing two fumbles.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Re-ups with Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals re-signed Dennard on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

The two sides agreed to terms of a contract shortly after a report that the Bengals and Chiefs, among other teams, were inquiring about Dennard's services. With an increased snap count the last two seasons, he averaged 5.3 tackles per game while accumulating two interceptions (one pick-six), two sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 29 appearances. Expect Dennard to return to his role manning slot corner in Cincinnati.

Darqueze Dennard: May find home soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard has garnered interest from the Bengals, Chiefs and one more team as an unrestricted free agent, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Not coincidentally, Dennard's most productive seasons have come with an increased snap count. Receiving 78.5 of those on defense in 2017 and 59.8 percent last year with the Bengals, he notched 153 tackles, two interceptions (one pick-six), two sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery across 29 games. Wherever he lands, Dennard is a good bet to start considering the teams interested in his services.

Bengals' Darqueze Dennard: Six pass deflections in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard recorded 68 tackles (54 solo), six passes defensed and two forced fumbles in 13 games in 2018.

Dennard tied his career high in passes defensed, though he didn't secure any interceptions this season. While not one of the league's dominant corners, the 2014 first-round pick is a decent starter and likely will see a similar role with Cincinnati once again in 2019.
