Football Team's Dylan Cantrell: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell (undisclosed) has reverted to Washington's injured reserve list, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

Cantrell spent the 2020 season on both the Cardinals and Patriots' practice squads. Once the season concluded, he ultimatley signed a futures contract with Washington. He is currently dealing with an undisclosed injury and was recently waived by the team. After going unclaimed, he will now relocate to the team's IR.

Football Team's Dylan Cantrell: Links with Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell secured a future contract with Washington on Monday.

Cantrell didn't make a regular-season game appearance in 2020, despite spending time with the practice squads of the Cardinals, Patriots, and most recently, Washington. The 26-year-old tight end will now look to continue honing his skills in the hopes of making his NFL debut at some point in 2021.

Dylan Cantrell: Jumps on with practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell signed with Washington's practice squad Wednesday.

New England decided to cut Cantrell from its practice squad Nov. 13, enabling Washington to acquire the 26-year-old as a developmental tight end option. The Texas Tech product has yet to make a regular-season appearance since joining the Chargers as a sixth-round draft choice in 2018. Cantrell's most prolific college season came during his 2017 senior campaign when he accumulated 816 receiving yards and eight total touchdowns.

Dylan Cantrell: Cut from Pats' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots have released Cantrell from their practice squad, Doug Kyed of reports.

This move comes days after Cantrell joined the team's practice squad. New England presumably did not see what it was looking for and made a quick decision to go in another direction. As a result, the 26-year-old will look for a new landing spot.

Dylan Cantrell: Joins Patriots' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell signed to New England's practice squad Tuesday, Mike Reiss of reports.

The 26-year-old spent training camp with the Cardinals before landing on the practice squad, and he's now receiving the same opportunity with the Patriots. Cantrell is potential depth at tight end with Dalton Keene (knee) and Devin Asiasi (undisclosed) recently moving to injured reserve.

Dylan Cantrell: Sticking on practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell signed to the Cardinals' practice squad Sunday, Tadd Haislop of reports.

Cantrell spent the offseason in Arizona after having spent his first two injury-plagued seasons in the league with the Chargers. The Texas Tech product is still looking for an opportunity to make his NFL debut, and his chances for activation could be slim as an emergency option in 2020.

Cardinals' Dylan Cantrell: Gets chance in desert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell (shoulder) signed a contract with the Cardinals on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Cantrell's first two years in the league were derailed due to injuries -- a bone bruise and a shoulder issue, respectively -- but he'll now get a shot to continue his development in Arizona, where he'll reunite with college coach Kliff Kingsbury. The Cardinals' decision to sign Cantrell is a hint that the team is confident in his health, but it's worth noting that the unique nature of this offseason allows clubs to announce signings prior to players officially passing a physical. The soon-to-be 26-year-old is still looking to make his NFL debut.

Chargers' Dylan Cantrell: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell (shoulder) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve Monday, Eric D. Williams of reports.

Cantrel was waived by the Chargers on Sunday due to a shoulder injury. Now that he's passed through waivers, he'll likely remain on injured reserve for the remainder of the season unless the two sides reach an injury settlement.

Dylan Cantrell: Waived/injured by Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell was placed on the waived/injured list by the Chargers on Sunday.

Cantrell had been dealing with an undisclosed injury heading into camp, which was later described as a shoulder injury. Cantrell had high hopes heading into the offseason, as he was believed to be in the running to secure a 53-man roster spot. If he goes unclaimed on waivers, he'll revert back to the Chargers' roster while being placed on injured reserve.

Chargers' Dylan Cantrell: Takes Saturday off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell did not participate in Saturday's practice due to an undisclosed reason, Daniel Popper of the Athletic reports.

Cantrell's absence isn't yet worrisome given the lack of clarity, but he's likely still on the roster bubble heading into August.

Chargers' Dylan Cantrell: Lower on depth chart than projected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell may be on the roster bubble heading into training camp, Eric D. Williams of reports.

Though he predicts that Cantrell will ultimately find himself on the outside looking in for a roster berth, Williams offered the caveat that the wideout could earn a spot if the Chargers are willing to give him time to get acclimated to an NFL offense. In any event, it's surprising to see the likes of Artavis Scott and Geremy Davis listed as better roster bets than the 6-foot-4 Cantrell. Regardless of how the Chargers' roster decisions shake out, the team is unlikely to keep more than six receivers heading into Week 1. With that in mind, at least one of Cantrell, Davis and Scott may be earmarked for the practice squad, if not outright released at the end of the preseason.

Chargers' Dylan Cantrell: Competing for additional snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell could compete for snaps at receiver in 2019 behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Cantrell has garnered attention from the coaching staff, as the 2018 sixth-round pick was among the early standouts during his first training camp before a deep bone bruise effectively ended his rookie campaign before it began. At 6-foot-3 and 226 pounds, Cantrell profiles as an effective option when split out wide, something that was also true of the since-departed Tyrell Williams. Considering Allen ran 54 percent of his routes from the slot in 2018, Cantrell might also benefit as the lone man standing when it comes to potential weapons opposite Williams, as Cantrell's main competitors for the Nos. 3 and 4 roles (Travis Benjamin and Artavis Scott) are ideal inside targets.

Chargers' Dylan Cantrell: Could earn key role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell has a path to significant playing time in 2019, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

The Chargers haven't signed a replacement for Tyrell Williams (Raiders) and could still release Travis Benjamin to free up $5.25 million in cap space. Even if Benjamin does stick around, there's no guarantee he operates as the No. 3 receiver, with Cantrell, Geremy Davis and Artavis Scott all capable of pushing for the role. Cantrell was selected in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft and spent most of his rookie season on the practice squad after suffering a bone bruise in his right knee during training camp. The 226-pound Texas Tech product finished top three among wideouts at the 2018 NFL Combine in the three-cone drill, short shuttle, long shuttle, broad jump and long jump, but his 40-yard dash (4.59 seconds) and middling college production (1,873 receiving yards in 40 games) are far less encouraging.

Chargers' Dylan Cantrell: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers signed Cantrell (knee) from their practice squad Monday.

Cantrell's spot on the 53-man roster comes following Los Angeles' decision to waive Joe Barksdale. The rookie sixth-round pick spent the beginning of the season on the Chargers' practice squad while nursing a bone bruise in his right knee. Cantrell could be worth monitoring in dynasty formats, but he's unlikely to earn a notable role in the Chargers' loaded receiver corps this season.

Dylan Cantrell: Headed to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell (knee) was waived by the Chargers on Saturday, Ricky Henne of the team's official site reports.

Cantrell was bothered by a bone bruise in his right knee during the preseason, but he'll join the Chargers' practice squad after failing to make the 53-man roster.

Chargers' Dylan Cantrell: Sidelined thanks to bone bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell suffered a bone bruise in his right knee which is expected to sideline him for "a little while," Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

The sketchy timeline comes courtesy of head coach Anthony Lynn, who has made a point to avoid suggesting specific dates of return for his injured players thus far in training camp. The sixth-round pick, who was using crutches late last week, had been playing well prior to the injury, standing out in a number of receiving drills to the point where he's considered to be in the running for one of the final spots on the 53-man roster.

Chargers' Dylan Cantrell: Goes down with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cantrell suffered a right knee injury during practice Friday but was able to jog off the field under his own power, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

There still seems to be a lot of unknown surrounding the condition Cantrell is in after suffering the injury, but the fact that he was able to jog off the field is certainly a good sign. Expect an update on Cantrell's status prior to the Chargers' next practice.
