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

Orchard was waived by the Texans on Saturday.

The 27-year-old was claimed off waivers by Houston about a month ago but is now parting ways with the team. Orchard didn't see game action during his month with the Texans.

Texans' Nate Orchard: Officially joining Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard was activated from the Exempt/Commissioner Permission list Monday.

Houston claimed Orchard off waivers two days after he was let go by Washington on Nov. 7, but the linebacker had to clear NFL COVID-19 protocols before being able to officially join his new team. The Utah product's best campaign came during his rookie 2015 season when he recorded 36 tackles and three sacks for the Browns, but he has just three combined sacks over 31 games played since then.

Texans' Nate Orchard: Claimed by Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans claimed Orchard off waivers from Washington on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Orchard played in eight games for Washington since the beginning of the 2019 season, recording 16 tackles, a sack and a pass breakup. He'll arrive in Houston and fill an immediate role with his new team, as the Texans just placed Brennan Scarlett (forearm) and Kyle Emanuel (concussion) on injured reserve. Due to COVID-19 guidelines, Orchard's availability is uncertain for this Sunday's matchup against the Browns, but he may compete for a starting outside linebacker role once he joins team activities.

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

Orchard was waived by Washington on Saturday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

The return of Steven Sims (toe), who missed the last four games, spelt the end of Orchard's tenure with the team. Orchard piled together two tackles in two games this season, adding much-needed depth to Washington's defensive front.

Football Team's Nate Orchard: Rises to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington promoted Orchard to the active roster Tuesday, Kyle Stackpole of the team's official site reports.

A roster spot opened up with Matthew Ioannidis (torn biceps) on IR, so Orchard will add depth on the defensive line. Rookie first-rounder Chase Young (groin) could miss this Sunday's game against the Ravens, too. Orchard played five games in 2019 and posted 14 tackles, a sack and a pass breakup.

Nate Orchard: Joins practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington signed Orchard to the practice squad after having cut him, Kyle Stackpole of the team's official site reports.

Orchard appeared in five games with Washington in 2019, so if the team's linebacker corps needs added depth this season, he'll be a strong candidate to be promoted.

Redskins' Nate Orchard: Re-ups with Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins and Orchard agreed to terms on a one-year contract Wednesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

The 28-year-old was a late-season add to the roster in 2019, playing five games and producing 14 tackles (eight solo), a sack and a pass breakup. Orchard will likely continue to provide depth in Washington's linebacking corps in 2020.

Redskins' Nate Orchard: Joins Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orchard signed a contract with the Redskins on Wednesday.

Orchard was let go by the Dolphins before the season opener and hasn't seen game action since Week 9 of last season. The 26-year-old should provide depth on the defensive front for the Redskins.

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

Miami released Orchard on Tuesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Orchard originally signed with the Dolphins in mid-May. The 26-year-old veteran has seen regular-season action with three teams over his four-year career. Orchard now will have to find another squad for 2019 after signing contracts with and being released by both the Seahawks and Dolphins in the offseason.

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.

September 11, 2018 11:40 PM
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.
