Josh Keyes: Time's up in Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keyes didn't receive a qualifying offer or minimum tender from the Browns and has become an unrestricted free agent, per the league's official transaction log.

Keyes, who the Browns claimed off waivers in November, racked up four tackles in eight games with Cleveland in 2017 while exclusively serving in a special-teams role. The Boston College product is still only 25 years old and could have a number of suitors on the open market in need of extra bodies for training camp this summer.

Keyes' yo-yo season continues, with the second-year linebacker now having seen two stints apiece on the practice squad and active roster for the Bucs. Given his familiarity with the team's system, it wouldn't be surprising to see Keyes on speed dial should the team need some reinforcements at linebacker at some point.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keyes is expected to be promoted to the active roster in advance of the Week 1 tilt versus the Falcons now that Devante Bond (hamstring) has been ruled out, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The undrafted second-year pro filled in for Bond at strongside linebacker in the final two preseason games and now appears likely to fill his spot come Sunday. Keyes was part of the Bucs' practice squad last season as well, before a promotion to the active roster for the final seven games of the season. He tallied a pair of special-teams stops along with five tackles on defense, following a career at Boston College where he amassed 124 tackles (79 solo), including 16.5 for loss, and 7.5 sacks over four seasons.
