Nate Orchard: Expected to land in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard worked out for the Dolphins and is expected to sign with the team in the coming days, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Orchard spent last season with two teams (Buffalo and Kansas City), playing four games and recording four tackles (three solo). The deal isn't official yet, but the 26-year-old will likely get a chance with his fifth team after coming into the league as a second-round pick of the Browns in 2015 and having a brief stint with Seattle earlier in the offseason.

Nate Orchard: Released by Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard was released by the Seahawks on Friday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Orchard was released to make room for newcomer Ezekiel Ansah on Seattle's 90-man roster. The Utah product has four NFL seasons under his belt, with his best year coming in 2017 -- Orchard appeared in all 16 games for Cleveland, logging 25 tackles (14 solo), two sacks, a forced fumble and even 17 kick return yards over 433 defensive snaps and 65 snaps on special teams.

Seahawks' Nate Orchard: Resurfaces in Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard is signing a contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Orchard spent time with both the Chiefs and Bills last season and ultimately played 36 total snaps on defense and six on special teams in 2018. While the 2015 second-round pick is largely considered a bust at this point, Orchard still figures to have decent odds of making the 53-man roster in Seattle ahead of the 2019 campaign, particularly given the lack of established depth on the edge.

Nate Orchard: Let go by Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard was waived by the Chiefs on Tuesday.

Orchard signed a contract with the Chiefs on Oct. 10 and appeared in three games, totaling three tackles and one pass defense. The 25-year-old linebacker spent the first three years of his career in Cleveland, where he recorded 40 tackles and five sacks.

Chiefs' Nate Orchard: Inks deal with Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard signed a contract with the Chiefs on Wednesday.

Orchard will add needed depth at outside linebacker with both Justin Houston (hamstring) and Tanoh Kpassagnon (ankle) nursing injuries. Neither player is a safe bet to suit up Sunday against the Patriots, so Orchard and fellow newcomer Frank Zombo could be pressed into action right away for Kansas City.

Nate Orchard: Let go by Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard was cut by the Bills on Tuesday.

Orchard was released to make room for cornerback Dontae Johnson on Buffalo's 53-man roster. The 2015 second-round draft pick is now free to look for a role as a depth pass rusher elsewhere.

Bills' Nate Orchard: Signs with Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills signed Orchard to a one-year deal Monday, Chris Brown of the team's official site reports.

Orchard was released by the Browns in early September as part of the team's final roster cuts. The Bills hope the former second-round draft pick will bolster their defensive line as a pass rusher, a role he's been familiar with throughout his career. The 25-year-old defensive end has five sacks in 34 games.

Browns' Nate Orchard: Full participant Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard (groin) fully participated in practice Friday.

Orchard was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but should be ready to go for Sunday's matchup with Pittsburgh. The 24-year-old will likely have in increased role in Cleveland's defense with first overall pick Myles Garrett (ankle) sidelined for at least a couple weeks.

Browns' Nate Orchard: Limited again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard (groin) was limited during Thursday's practice.

With dynamic edge rusher Myles Garrett (ankle) sidelined for at least the next two weeks, the Browns will expect Orchard to take on a bigger role on the defensive line. However, he hasn't been able to practice at full capacity since injuring his groin, although his limited participation in the last two days lends some optimism for his Week 1 status.

Browns' Nate Orchard: Participates in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard (groin) returned to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Orchard could be called upon for a serious role sooner than expected since Myles Garrett left Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury that the Browns fear could keep him out for weeks. However, there's no definitive ruling on Orchard or Garrett, but this is definitely a pair to keep an eye on.

Browns' Nate Orchard: Misses practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard (groin) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

After sitting out the team's second preseason game and missing subsequent practices with a groin injury, it seems unlikely Orchard will be healthy enough suit up Saturday versus the Buccaneers. The defensive end is in competition for a roster spot, but he's missing valuable time to showcase his talent.

Browns' Nate Orchard: Sidelined Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard will sit out Monday's exhibition with the Giants due to a groin injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Orchard tallied two tackles and a half sack in the team's first preseason game. It's unclear if he sustained the groin injury during that contest or in a recent practice, but either way, he'll be unavailable Monday. The 24-year-old is looking to secure a spot on the final roster, so his quick return to practice will be essential to those efforts.

Browns' Nate Orchard: Active in OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard (ankle) has been an active participant in OTAs, Nate Ulrich of The Akron Beacon-Journal reports.

Orchard finished the 2016 season on injured reserve after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 3. His participation in OTAs this month implies he's since received medical clearance to return to action.

Browns' Nate Orchard: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard (ankle) was placed on the Browns' injured reserve list on Saturday.

Orchard suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 3 and is now likely done for the season. Cam Johnson was promoted from the team's practice squad in order to replace him as a depth option at linebacker in advance of the Browns' Week 4 tilt against the Redskins.

Browns' Nate Orchard: Ruled out for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard (ankle) has been ruled out for the Browns' Week 4 game against the Redskins, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Orchard suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 3 and is expected to be sidelined for an extended period of time. Corey Lemonier stands to see increased run until he can return.

Browns' Nate Orchard: Suffers high ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard is expected to miss an extended period of time with a high ankle sprain, Andrew Gribble of ClevelandBrowns.com reports.

Orchard is dealing with the dreaded high ankle sprain, which often varies on potential return timelines. He'll likely be sidelined for at least the next week, but it wouldn't be surprising if his absence ended up lasting multiple games. With Orchard on the sideline, Corey Lemonier could get more work backing up both Emmanuel Ogbah and Joe Schobert at outside linebacker.

Browns' Nate Orchard: Leaves game in walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard left Sunday's game in a walking boot on his left leg, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

It's never good to see a player in a walking boot, especially at the linebacking position. Orchard's status for next week remains murky, but we should have a clearer understanding of his availability later in the week.

Browns' Nate Orchard: Set to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard (groin) is active Sunday against the Bengals.

Orchard was limited in practice all week, but will suit up and presumably take on a meaningful snap count from the outside linebacker spot in the Week 13 contest.

Browns announce signing of LB Nate Orchard
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Browns have announced the signing of linebacker and second-round pick Nate Orchard, Newsnet5 has reported.

It is hoped Orchard can help a pass rush that has struggled to make a major impact in recent years. He recorded 18.5 sacks for Utah a year ago.
