Cardinals' Chris Banjo: Back with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals and Banjo agreed to terms on a contract Sunday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The veteran was a core special teams player for the Cardinals in 2019, making 12 tackles (six solo), and suiting up in 277 special-teams snaps. Banjo is expected to resume his usual role while providing limited value in IDP formats in 2020.

Cardinals' Chris Banjo: Inks deal with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Banjo signed with Arizona on Wednesday.

After releasing wide receiver Michael Crabtree earlier in the week, the Cardinals found themselves with an open spot on their 53-man roster and elected to fill it with Banjo, a veteran safety who excels on special teams. Expected to occupy a limited role with his new team, Banjo offers little-to-no value in IDP formats.

Chris Banjo: Released by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Banjo was released by the Saints on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Banjo signed an extension in March of 2019, but he and the Saints will part ways only five months into it. He earned a $1.8 million signing bonus and an $850K base salary on the deal, making this an interesting financial move from the Saints' perspective. The core special teamer will look to find himself on another NFL roster prior to Week 1 of the regular season.

Saints' Chris Banjo: Tallies three tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Banjo (knee) had three tackles (two solo) in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets.

Banjo missed time during the offseason with the knee injury but is good to go with the regular season right around the corner. The 29-year-old has played only 85 defensive snaps over the past two seasons in New Orleans, but he earned a three-year extension in March due to his impact on special teams.

Saints' Chris Banjo: Absent from OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Banjo (knee) wasn't present at OTAs on Thursday, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports.

Banjo was one of four Saints not present at OTAs on Thursday. The team didn't provide a reason for the defensive back's absence, but a league source said he is recovering from a "minor knee injury." Banjo has appeared in all 32 games for the Saints over the last two seasons, though primarily in a special teams role. The 29-year-old logged 608 snaps on special teams in that span, compared to 85 snaps on defense.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Banjo and the Saints agreed on a three-year extension worth $9 million Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Banjo suited up for all 16 games last season. While he provided depth at safety, he is seen primarily as a standout special teamer. He figures to continue focusing on that role with the club going forward.

Saints' Chris Banjo: Two interceptions Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Banjo compiled two tackles and two interceptions during Sunday's 48-7 win over the Eagles.

Banjo had a career day Sunday, as he was the recipient of two of the three interceptions Carson Wentz tossed. Don't expect production like this to continue, however, as he still figures to back up Marcus Williams at the safety position.

Saints' Chris Banjo: Inks two-year extension with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Banjo agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Saints on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com reports.

Banjo opened the 2016 season with the Packers. However, he was eventually released by the team with an injury settlement and ended up signing with the Saints in November once he was back to full strength. He went on to play in seven games for the Saints, logging five total tackles. Banjo does most of his work on special teams, however, which likely will keep his fantasy outlook low heading into the 2017 campaign.

Packers' Chris Banjo: Doubtful for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Banjo (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Banjo missed the team's Week 1 win over the Jaguars and didn't practice at all this week, making it unlikely he plays Week 2. Look for Kentrell Brice to assume the role as backup safety once again if Banjo is held out.

Packers' Chris Banjo: Does not play final preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Banjo (hamstring) was inactive for the Packers' final preseason game, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Banjo did not play in the Packers' final exhibition contest, but he is part of the team's 53-man roster, so he should have a chance to play Week 1. If he is ready to go he will be counted on as a key member of the Packers' special teams units.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Banjo sustained a hamstring injury during Friday's preseason win at San Francisco, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
