Buccaneers' K.J. Brent: Signs future deal with Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent signed a reserve/future contract with Tampa Bay on Monday.

Brent spent time with the Bucs' and Colts' practice squads this season, but he was never elevated to the active roster. The third-year pro suited up in five games for the Colts last year, and he failed to haul in his only target. Brent will vie for a depth spot with the Bucs, who will likely be moving on from DeSean Jackson (Achilles) during the offseason.

K.J. Brent: Signs with Bucs' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent signed with the Buccaneers' practice squad Tuesday, Jenna Laine of reports.

The 25-year-old wideout spent time with the Colts' practice squad earlier this season, and he'd also worked out for the Packers in mid-November. With a solid 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame, the Bucs likely view Brent as an intriguing prospect that they'll hope to begin developing over the balance of the regular season and into the offseason.

K.J. Brent: Working out for Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent (knee) is working out for the Packers on Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Brent appears to have fully recovered from the knee injury that landed him on Indianapolis' injured reserve in September. If the 25-year-old is able to earn a depth role in Green Bay, he would be unlikely to serve as more than a special-teams contributor.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent (knee) was released from the Colts' practice squad Friday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Brent was waived with an injury settlement from IR in September, but he joined the team's practice squad earlier this week. The Colts continue to battle injury issues at wide receiver, but the team opted to make room for Krishawn Hogan on the practice squad, instead.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent (knee) signed with the Colts' practice squad Tuesday.

Brent was waived/injured by the Colts back in early September, but will now return to the organization as a member of the practice squad. With injuries piling up on the Colts' active group, Brent could find himself on the 53-man roster at some point this year.

K.J. Brent: Waived with injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent (knee) was waived with an injury settlement by the Colts on Thursday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Brent suffered the knee injury in mid-August and was unable to play in the final two preseason games. The 25-year-old cleared waivers and was placed on injured reserve, but he can now sign with another team due to the injury settlement.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

K.J. Brent: Waived/injured by Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent (knee) was waived/injured by the Colts on Saturday, Stephen Holder of The Athletic Indiana reports.

Brent played well in camp prior to his knee injury but he wasn't able to get back to the field for the team's final two preseason tilts. If he goes unclaimed through the waiver process he'll revert to the Colts' injured reserve.

Colts' K.J. Brent: Likely not playing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent (knee) is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers.

Brent suffered a knee injury Aug. 18 that has now held him out of the Colts' past two preseason games. The third-year receiver is squarely on the roster bubble, and is at great risk of not making Indianapolis' 53-man squad if he cannot get healthy and prove his ability. Look for Daurice Fountain and Cobi Hamilton to see additional looks if Brent is indeed out.

Colts' K.J. Brent: Not playing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent (knee) will not play in Monday's preseason game against the Ravens.

Brent sustained an unspecified knee injury during Saturday's practice session. The severity of the injury currently remains unknown, but it was enough hold him out of Monday's contest.

Colts' K.J. Brent: Continues strong preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent had two receptions for 18 yards on three targets in Thursday's preseason win at Seattle.

Brent has drawn praise in training camp for his performance and it looks like he has the inside track on winning a final spot on the roster as a reserve receiver. He got playing time with the second-team offense during the game, which shows he may have an outside shot at the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver role.

Colts' K.J. Brent: Listed as No. 5 or No. 6 WR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent is listed as the No. 5 or No. 6 receiver on the Colts' first depth chart of the preseason, the Indianapolis Star reports.

It's notable that Brent is listed ahead of fifth-round draft pick Reece Fountain. However, that could be just because he's a veteran. Brent, an undrafted free agent from Wake Forest, played five games with the Colts last season but didn't have a reception and had just one target. He's a long shot to win a significant role this summer, but the No. 3 to No. 5 wide receiver roles are wide open.

Colts' K.J. Brent: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent was promoted from the Colts' practice squad to their active roster Saturday.

Brent was brought in as a safety measure at wide receiver, as Donte Moncrief (groin) is questionable for the contest. Brent has been with the team since signing with the practice squad Oct. 24. Prior to that he spent time with the Seahawks and Raiders.

K.J. Brent: Signed to Indianapolis' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts signed Brent to their practice squad Tuesday.

Brent, a 6-foot-3 receiver out of Wake Forest, had previously been a member of the Seahawks' practice squad earlier this season. The Colts aren't dealing with any injuries among their wideouts on the active roster, but if health becomes a concern in the second half of the season, Brent could earn a promotion from the practice squad.

K.J. Brent: Fails to land on final roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent was waived by the Raiders on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Brent was attempting to secure the final receiver spot on the Raiders' depth chart but ultimately fell short. Quarterback Derek Carr praised his route running during training camp, so he figures to be strong candidate the team's practice squad. He could ultimately see some regular-season action should the team suffer any injuries at wide receiver.

K.J. Brent: Signed to Raiders practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brent was released by the Raiders on Saturday, but signed to the team's practice squad Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Brent battled throughout the preseason with Johnny Holton for the Raiders' No. 5 spot in the wide receiver corps, but was ultimately cut as the team finalized their 53-man roster. He'll keep grinding on the practice squad, but could be called up at some point during the regular season if the opportunity presents itself.
