Bills' T.J. Yeldon: Lands in Buffalo on two-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon signed a two-year contract with the Bills on Monday, Chris Brown of the team's official site reports.

Though he's already four seasons into his NFL career, the 25-year-old Yeldon will provide some youth to a Bills backfield that features LeSean McCoy (who turns 31 in July) and Frank Gore (36 in May) atop the depth chart. During his time in Jacksonville, Yeldon failed to emerge as a consistent bellcow for the Jaguars, but has nonetheless maintained a respectable career mark of 4.0 yards per carry. Instead, Yeldon has made his biggest impact as a pass catcher, and that's likely the area where he'll provide the most utility for Buffalo in 2019. Yeldon has eclipsed 50 catches in both of the past two seasons, including a career-high 55 grabs and four receiving scores in 2018.

T.J. Yeldon: Has visit with Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon visited the Bills on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With Chris Ivory no longer in the mix, the Bills' running back depth chart is currently headed by incumbent starter LeSean McCoy and veteran Frank Gore. If Yeldon ends up with Buffalo, he'd add valuable depth and a viable pass-catching alternative out of the team's backfield.

T.J. Yeldon: Meets with Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon visited with the Patriots on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Yeldon displayed versatility in four seasons with the Jaguars, averaging 4.0 yards per carry, posting a catch rate of 73.4 percent (171 receptions on 233 targets) and scoring 12 combined touchdowns in 51 games. New England's backfield is fairly set with Sony Michel in a two-down and goal-line role, James White serving as the pass-catching back, and Rex Burkhead in reserve. That said, Yeldon's skill set would be a boon to that corps, if he signs of course.

T.J. Yeldon: Still available in free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon, an unrestricted free agent, remains unsigned as of Tuesday morning, Eliott Shorr-Parks of 94 WIP Sports Radio reports.

Recent history suggests the market is unkind to third- and fourth-tier running backs, but Yeldon should have some value thanks to his ability to handle passing downs. The 2015 second-round pick averaged 3.4 receptions per game in four seasons with the Jaguars, while his 465 carries yielded just six touchdowns and an average of 4.0 yards. There are a number of teams that could still use a passing-down back, including the Eagles, Ravens and Packers.

Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: Draws criticism after Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jaguars VP Tom Coughlin said he was "disappointed" in Yeldon and Leonard Fournette's (ankle) behavior during Sunday's loss to the Texans, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

Yeldon and Fournette were seen throughout the game sitting on the bench and somewhat disconnected from the team, even when the offense was on the field. Coughlin also much more harshly said, "They were disrespectful, selfish and their behavior was unbecoming that of a professional football player." Fournette was inactive Sunday, yet Yeldon did not play a snap. The 25-year-old had 104 carries for 414 yards and one touchdown while catching 55 passes for 487 yards and four touchdowns this season, and has likely seen his time in Jacksonville unceremoniously come to an end as he is set for free agency in 2019.
