by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stave was waived in order to make room for the punter Justin Vogel, who was claimed off waivers Monday. Landing with the Browns last week, Stave took part in the club's rookie minicamp.

Browns' Joel Stave: Signs with Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stave signed with the Browns on Monday.

Stave was most recently waived by the Jets a little over two weeks ago after signing a reserve/future contract with them back in January. He is still yet to appear in the regular season, however, and given that the Browns look to be secure at the quarterback position with Tyrod Taylor, Drew Stanton and No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield, chances are he ends up on a practice squad yet again.

Joel Stave: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stave was waived by the Jets on Friday.

The Wisconsin product was signed to a reserve/future contract by the Jets on Jan. 1, but he'll be let go without truly proving his worth. The Jets will likely draft a quarterback later in April to add to Josh McCown (hand) and Teddy Bridgewater (knee), so this move was inevitable. If he clears waivers, he'll look for a spot on the Jets' practice squad.

Joel Stave: Signs reserve/future contract with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets signed Stave to a reserve/future contract Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Stave has spent time with the Vikings and Redskins since going undrafted out of Wisconsin in 2016 but is yet to appear in a professional game. With Josh McCown (hand) set for unrestricted free agency, Stave initially slots in as the Jets' third quarterback behind Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg.

Joel Stave: Joining Washington practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins signed Stave to their practice squad Wednesday, John Keim of reports.

Stave completed four of nine passes for 80 yards and a score while competing for a reserve gig in the preseason with the Chiefs, but didn't make the team and later latched on with the Vikings' practice squad. After a short stint in Minnesota, he's now in Washington, but is unlikely to be promoted to the active roster unless an injury strikes either Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy.

Joel Stave: Signed to Minnesota's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stave was signed to Minnesota's practice squad, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Even if there is more chaos at quarterback with Sam Bradford and Shuan Hill taking over for injured Teddy Bridgewater, it's hard to see Stave as an option to be activated to the 53-man roster. He'll likely spend the full season developing on the practice squad.

Vikings' Joel Stave: Waived by Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stave was waived by Minnesota.

With the Vikings trading for Sam Bradford, Minnesota elected to only keep Bradford and Shaun Hill on the 53-man roster. Stave could be signed to the team's practice squad.

Vikings' Joel Stave: Held out as precaution Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike Zimmer said after Thursday's game that Stave (hand) could have returned if it were necessary, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports.

Stave exited Thursday's game after suffering an apparent hand injury, and rather than risk further injury, the Vikings opted to keep the rookie on the sidelines. Brad Sorensen played the rest of the game at quarterback. Stave still appears to be in line to serve as Minnesota's backup unless the Vikings go outside the organization to bring on another signal caller.

Vikings' Joel Stave: Exits with hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stave was forced to leave Thursday's game early after injuring his hand, his return is questionable, Matt Vensel of the Star Tribune reports.

Stave was in line to see extensive action in Thursday's preseason finale before his time was cut short. His injury was not specified beyond being a hand injury but it doesn't appear to be very severe at this point. However, the Vikings can't afford any injuries at quarterback after Teddy Bridgewater's season-ending knee injury. Stave is currently the backup to starter Shaun Hill, though many expect the team to acquire a new veteran starter or backup.

Vikings' Joel Stave: Throws interception in preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stave was 8-of-13 for 76 yards with an interception in Friday's preseason win over the Bengals.

With Taylor Heinicke out for three months after tearing a tendon in his left ankle, Stave currently sits third on the Minnesota depth chart at quarterback. However, the Vikings may keep just two quarterbacks on the active roster or sign a veteran late in the preseason. Stave isn't a lock to make the team.
