Giants' Breeland Speaks: Joins Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants signed Speaks to a reserve/future contract Thursday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Speaks spent time with the Raiders' practice squad during the regular season, and he'll look to stand out in New York during the offseason. Since being selected by Kansas City with a 2018 second-round pick, knee injuries and a suspension have derailed Speaks' pro career thus far, making him a relatively low-risk, high-reward signing for the Giants.

Breeland Speaks: Signs with practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders signed Speaks to the practice squad Friday.

A 2018 second-round pick, Speaks' career has been derailed by a knee injury and a suspension in December of 2019 for violating the league's substance abuse policy. His suspension is expected to be lifted following Week 4, so he could add depth at defensive end for the Raiders moving forward.

Breeland Speaks: Cut by Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs waived Speaks on Saturday.

The 24-year-old didn't see action in any regular-season games in 2019 after playing all 16 in 2018. Speaks dealt with knee issues and a suspension for the league's substance-abuse policy in 2019. He'll look to find a depth role elsewhere after he produced 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks in a promising rookie campaign in 2018.

Chiefs' Breeland Speaks: Suspended four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Speaks (knee) has been given a four-game suspension by the NFL for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, Nate Taylor of The Athletic

Speaks is currently out for the season and on injured reserve due to a knee injury. His suspension will not take place until he is healthy enough to return to the active roster next season. It is certainly another blow for the 23-year-old, who had a promising 20018 rookie campaign.

Chiefs' Breeland Speaks: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs placed Speaks (knee) on season-ending injured reserve Saturday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Speaks had a promising rookie campaign -- 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks -- after being selected with a second-round pick by the Chiefs in the 2018 NFL Draft, but he unfortunately suffered a sprained MCL and a meniscus injury in the second preseason game. The 23-year-old won't be able to overcome it this season, so he's being shut down. Emmanuel Ogbah and Tanoh Kpassagnon will see increased chances while Speaks is on the mend.

Chiefs' Breeland Speaks: Set for knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Speaks (knee) was diagnosed with a sprained MCL and a meniscus injury and will undergo surgery this week, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Speaks suffered the injuries during Saturday's preseason game versus the Steelers. There's no official timetable for his recovery, but the 2018 second-round pick seems unlikely to be ready for Week 1 given the season opener at Jacksonville is less than two weeks away.

Chiefs' Breeland Speaks: Picks up injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Speaks suffered a knee injury during Saturday's game against the Steelers.

It's unclear how the Mississippi product picked up the injury, but it was serious enough to keep him out of the game. Expect the team to update Speaks' status as they see fit in the coming days.
