Green-Beckham was arrested Wednesday in Springfield, Mo. for possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana and resisting/interfering with an arrest, Harrison Keegan of the Springfield News-Ledger reports.
It's the latest in a long line of legal issues for Green-Beckham, a second-round pick of the Titans in 2015. The wideout played two seasons in the NFL before being cut by the Eagles shortly before training camp in 2017. Considering Green-Beckham's name hadn't been popping up on the workout circuit in recent months, this latest arrest only further dims the possibility of the 25-year-old appearing in the NFL again.
Green-Beckham passed through waivers unclaimed, ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reports.
The 2015 second-round pick was released by the Eagles on Friday and apparently didn't draw any interest despite carrying a base salary south of $1 million. He should still be able to find a new team before training camp if he's willing to accept the minimum salary for a third-year player and a small signing bonus. Green-Beckham likely would be a long shot to make the final roster even if he were to sign with a receiver-needy team.
The Eagles released Green-Beckham on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
The writing was on the wall when the Eagles drafted Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson after already signing Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith. With 2015 first-round pick Nelson Agholor reportedly shining this offseason, Green-Beckham would've faced competition from Gibson and a few other players for the possibility of one roster spot, needing the Eagles to keep six wide receivers just to have a chance. Green-Beckham is likely pleased about the transaction, as he still has some time before training camp to find a team that'll give him a better shot at making the Week 1 roster. The 40th overall pick from the 2015 Draft will eventually join his third NFL franchise in as many years, as he's yet to make good on the superb athleticism that made him a five-star recruit and early draft pick. He's shown little to no ability to separate from NFL cornerbacks, but there should still be a few teams willing to give the 6-foot-5 receiver a look in training camp as a potential red-zone threat.
Green-Beckham is a long shot to make the Eagles' final roster, Paul Domowitch of philly.com reports.
Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Matthews, and Torrey Smith figure to open the season as the team's top-3 receivers, with Green-Beckham, Nelson Agholor, Paul Turner, fourth-round rookie Mack Hollins, and fifth-round rookie Shelton Gibson competing to fill out the depth chart. As a non-factor on special teams, Green-Beckham wouldn't have any real use unless he managed to seize a spot among the top 4 on the wideout depth chart -- an unlikely scenario. Hollins, Gibson, Agholor, and Turner would all be more likely to contribute on special teams.
Green-Beckham will have to compete for playing time in a receiving corps that now includes free-agent signings Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, ESPN.com reports.
The Eagles' offseason moves suggest the team has little to no faith in Green-Beckham and Nelson Agholor, both of whom were incredibly inefficient with their limited targets last season. With Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Matthews and Torrey Smith likely to serve as the top three wideouts, Green-Beckham could find himself on the roster bubble.
Green-Beckham caught 36 passes (on 74 targets) for 392 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games played this season.
Green-Beckham was traded from the Titans just before the regular season kicked off, but despite the Eagles' lack of perimeter playmakers, he was unable to become a reliable fantasy option. The towering 2015 second-rounder had three games with at least five catches and 50 receiving yards, but was otherwise an underwhelming commodity, particularly after he finished last season with two 100-yard games and two scores over his final five outings. While a full offseason working with quarterback Carson Wentz should help Green-Beckham heading into next season, Philadelphia is almost certain to look to bolster their receiving corps before then, which could push Green-Beckham into more competition for targets.
Green-Beckham nabbed a seven-yard catch in Thursday's win over the Giants.
Green-Beckham was spotty for much of the season, but emerged with three straight games with at least four catches before injuring his ribs in Week 13 against the Bengals. He sat out one game and has caught just a pass each in his past two contests. If healthy, he could hope to repeat his five-catch effort the last time the Eagles locked up against Dallas in Week 8.
Green-Beckham had one catch (on three targets) for 11 yards in Sunday's 27-26 loss to Baltimore.
Green-Beckham has been streaky this season, at times looking like a No. 1 receiver in Philadelphia and at times looking like a last resort. His three targets Sunday come after he was targeted 10 times each of the past two weeks. As long as his play is as erratic as it is, he's a risky fantasy option.
Green-Beckham (abdomen) is listed as active Sunday at Baltimore, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.
Outside of Darren Sproles (concussion), Carson Wentz will have his full allotment of offensive weapons available to him in Week 15. The beneficiary of 28 targets across the last three contests, Green-Beckham will work in tandem with Jordan Matthews (ankle) against a Ravens defense that has given up 178.5 yards per game and six touchdowns to wideouts over the past four outings.
Green-Beckham (abdomen) is expected to play Sunday against the Ravens, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Green-Beckham is officially listed as questionable despite practicing fully all week, and he could be a popular option for quarterback Carson Wentz, who has targeted Green-Beckham 28 times in the last three games.
Green-Beckham (abdomen) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Green-Beckham was a full participant in practice every day this week, so despite his official questionable tag, he's seemingly destined to suit up Sunday.
Green-Beckham (abdomen) practiced fully Wednesday.
Coming off his first absence of the season, Green-Beckham is faring much better than a week ago, when he was unable to practice in any capacity. His abdominal injury could still linger, but Wednesday's full session indicates that he should be able to handle a full workload Sunday at Baltimore. He may be forced to if the DNP streak of fellow wideout Jordan Matthews (ankle) extends beyond Wednesday.
Green-Beckham (abdomen) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Redskins, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
An abdominal injury sidelined Green-Beckham during Week 14 preparation and will ultimately force his first absence of the season. The development should afford Jordan Matthews (ankle) plenty of attention as the Eagles' top receiving threat, but Nelson Agholor, Zach Ertz, and Darren Sproles will also key the passing attack.
Green-Beckham (abdomen) is not expected to play Sunday against the Redskins, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Although Green-Beckham's likely absence Sunday thins out Philadelphia's depth at receiver, Jordan Matthews' expected return from an ankle injury softens the blow. Green-Beckham was unable to practice throughout the week, and Saturday's report further solidifies the notion that he won't be available for the Eagles' divisional showdown. Nelson Agholor and Bryce Treggs stand to see an uptick in targets should Green-Beckham sit out Sunday.
Green-Beckham (abdomen) is listed as questionable to play Sunday against the Redskins.
Green-Beckham didn't practice all week, so it seems unlikely he'll play Sunday, even though his official questionable tag appears more promising. If he indeed sits out, Nelson Agholor, Bryce Treggs and Paul Turner would represent Philadelphia's only wide receivers besides Jordan Matthews (ankle), who at least is expected to return this weekend.
Green-Beckham (abdomen) was not spotted at Friday's practice, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.
Green-Beckham didn't practice Wednesday nor Thursday, so a third straight absence Friday clearly puts his status in doubt for this weekend's matchup versus the Redskins. While coach Doug Pederson clumped Green-Beckham into players considered questionable in his Friday press conference, the Eagles' injury report could appear less optimistic. As a result, Green-Beckham's situation remains in a holding pattern for now, but most indications suggest he'll be hard-pressed to play Sunday.
Green-Beckham (abdomen) didn't practice Wednesday.
As expected, Green-Beckham upheld head coach Doug Pederson's proclamation from Monday that the wideout wouldn't practice to start the week. Rather than be sidelined by the rib injury that knocked him from Sunday's defeat at Cincinnati, Green-Beckham is tending to an abdominal issue. Pederson nonetheless expects Green-Beckham to be available this Sunday versus the Redskins, so he seems likely to make an appearance at practice in advance of that contest.
According to head coach Doug Pederson, Green-Beckham (ribs) will not practice Wednesday but should be good to go for Week 14.
Green-Beckham was pulled from Week 13's game with a rib injury, but X-rays came back negative, giving the indication that the ailment is nothing serious. He'll look to build on a string of three straight eight-plus target games against the Redskins on Sunday.
X-rays taken on Green-Beckham's injured ribs came back negative, according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News.
Green-Beckham was forced from Sunday's game early by his rib injury, which cut short a day that saw him tally 10 targets for the second straight week. He should have a chance to play in the Eagles' next game against the Redskins, but his availability will likely be determined by his participation, or lack thereof, in practice this week.
Green-Beckham left Sunday's game at Cincinnati in order to undergo X-rays on his ribs.
Trailing 10-0 after one quarter, 19-0 at halftime, and 29-0 with 4:07 remaining in the third, head coach Doug Pederson ordered up pass after pass from Carson Wentz, who racked up 60 attempts in all. Green-Beckham was on the receiving end of 10 of them, yet he only corralled four for 29 yards. This marks back-to-back games with double-digit targets, and 28 over the last three, exhibiting his increased presence in the offense with Jordan Matthews (ankle) ailing and Nelson Agholor (inactive in Week 12, five targets Sunday) taking a back seat. Before one can dream about a breakout, though, Green-Beckham's health will be of interest as the week continues.
