After being picked in the seventh round by the Packers in the 2017 NFL Draft, Mays suited up for eight games last season, gaining just one yard on four carries. He was released with an injury settlement before this campaign began and spent time on the Browns' practice squad. Mays will look for a depth spot in the Cleveland's backfield, but he won't command many touches behind Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson.
Mays signed a contract to join the Browns' practice squad Tuesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Mays was drafted by Green Bay as a seventh-rounder back in 2017, but he was largely limited to special teams there and only notched one rushing yard on four carries when he was given a chance on offense. It's now possible he could get another chance to prove his worth in Cleveland should injuries strike either Nick Chubb or Duke Johnson.
Mays (hamstring) and the Packers came to terms on an injury settlement Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Mays spent the preseason dealing with a nagging hamstring injury, and was ultimately waived/injured by Green Bay. The 2017 seventh-rounder is now free to look for a home elsewhere in the league.
The Packers released Mays (hamstring) on Saturday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Per Wood, there's been talk that the two sides are discussing an injury settlement, which wouldn't allow the Packers to re-sign Mays to the practice squad. With a hamstring injury still in tow, another organization may not take a chance on Mays either, while agreeing to a settlement would hurt his chances of returning to Green Bay.
Mays (hamstring) is not playing in Thursday's preseason finale due to a hamstring injury, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Mays has not played all preseason and is in serious danger of missing the Packers final roster. With Aaron Jones suspended for the first two games of the regular season, Mays looks to be competing with Joel Bouagnon, who has 29 rushes for 76 yards and a touchdown so far this preseason, for a role on the active squad as during that period.
