Deon King: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars promoted King to their active roster Saturday, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.

King was on the Browns' active roster from Week 5 through Week 15 this season. He subsequently joined the Jaguars' practice squad after getting waived. His promotion Saturday indicates Blair Brown (ankle) may not be ready to go for Sunday's tilt against the Steelers, which would mean King could get some reps providing depth at weakside linebacker.

Deon King: Waived by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King was waived by the Browns on Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

King re-joined the Browns in mid-November after being waived a week earlier by the team. The 24-year-old has played in nine games for Cleveland this season, seeing most of his action on special teams. He could end up with the Browns' practice squad if he clears waivers.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Deon King: Hits waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns placed King on waivers Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

King suited up for just four games this season, but he only played three defensive snaps. If he clears waivers, there's a good chance he returns to the Browns' practice squad.

Browns' Deon King: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King was signed to the Browns' active roster from their practice squad Tuesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

King's promotion comes after the team placed linebacker Dominique Alexander (knee) on injured reserve. King will serve as a depth option at linebacker while also potentially taking on Alexander's reps on special teams.

Browns' Deon King: Signs with Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King signed a contract Monday with the Browns, Dan Labbe of Cleveland.com reports.

King, a second-year player out of Norfolk State, won the Buck Buchanan Award as the nation's top FCS defensive player in 2015. During his rookie campaign, he bounced around between the Cowboys, Chargers and Colts, with the latter club releasing him in May following the NFL draft. He joins a rather thin linebacking corps in Cleveland and could have an outside chance of making the team if he can carve out a niche on special teams.

Deon King: Let go by Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King was released by the Colts on Monday.

King was hoping to compete for a roster spot with the Colts during training camp, but he won't be given that opportunity after the club cut him loose to create more roster room for the several undrafted free agents that were signed over the weekend. The 23-year-old linebacker split time with the Colts and Chargers in 2016, amassing two tackles over six games as a rookie.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

King will provide depth to a Chargers' linebacker corps that has lost Manti Te'o and Nick Dzubnar for the year and will be without Jatavis Brown and likely Denzel Perryman for Week 9.
