Broncos' Damion Willis: Joins Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis signed a contract with the Broncos on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It's a bit odd to see the Broncos sign a free agent wide receiver after recently releasing 2018 fourth-round pick DaeSean Hamilton (knee), but Willis likely is meant to just provide some depth at the position. The 23-year-old had stints on the Browns and Jaguars practice squad last season, but hasn't played in a game since 2019.

Damion Willis: Joins Jags' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis signed with Jacksonville's practice squad Monday, James Johnson of USA Today reports.

The 23-year-old has yet to catch on with an NFL team in 2020 after making 10 appearances for the Bengals last season. Dede Westbrook (knee-ACL) remains on IR while Laviska Shenault recently sustained a thumb injury, prompting Jacksonville to add development depth at the position.

Damion Willis: Works out with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions hosted Willis (undisclosed) for a workout Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Browns waived Willis with an injury designation in August, but he's healthy and looking for a fresh start. The Troy product played 10 games with the Bengals last year and caught nine of 16 targets for 82 yards.

Damion Willis: Fails physical, heads to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns waived Willis (undisclosed) with a failed physical designation Sunday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

The Browns claimed Willis off waivers Wednesday, but the wide receiver wasn't healthy enough to sign with the team. It's unclear what he's dealing with, but the 23-year-old will focus on getting healthy before trying out with another team.

Browns' Damion Willis: Latches on with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns claimed Willis off waivers Wednesday.

Willis was let go by the Bengals after he produced nine catches for 82 yards across 10 games as a rookie last season. The undrafted free agent out of Troy in 2019 could just be a depth option in camp with Damion Ratley (groin) and KhaDarel Hodge (personal) missing camp.

Damion Willis: Done in Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals waived Willis on Tuesday.

Willis had nine catches for 82 yards across 10 games as a rookie with the Bengals last season. He also spent time on the team's practice squad. The 6-foot-3, 204-pound wideout will now look to earn a depth role elsewhere in the league.

Bengals' Damion Willis: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (undisclosed) passed his physical Monday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Willis jumped on and off the 53-man roster for Cincinnati in 2019, ultimately finishing his rookie campaign with nine receptions for 82 yards. With A.J. Green healthy and the team adding Tee Higgins via the draft, Willis will likely face an uphill battle to secure a spot this season.

Bengals' Damion Willis: Lands on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (undisclosed) was placed on the physically unable to perform list Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

It's not clear why Willis was placed on the PUP list, but the second-year receiver will nevertheless attempt to get healthy ahead of a 2020 campaign in which he could be slated for another spot on the team's practice squad.

Bengals' Damion Willis: Nine grabs in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis hauled in nine of 16 targets for 82 yards across 10 regular-season games in 2019.

Willis spent the season shifting between Cincinnati's practice squad and active roster, and injuries to both A.J. Green and John Ross played a role in his earning a depth role. He'll fight to carve out a larger workload in 2020.

Bengals' Damion Willis: Inactive for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

With Willis inactive and A.J. Green (ankle) still out, the bulk of the Bengals' passing game likely will be targeted toward Tyler Boyd, John Ross and Alex Erickson in a plus matchup against the Dolphins.

Bengals' Damion Willis: Jumps to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals promoted Willis to the active roster Tuesday, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The undrafted rookie out of Troy has played 10 games for the Bengals this year, recording 82 yards on nine receptions. There's no indication that A.J. Green (ankle) will be back for Sunday's matchup against the Patriots, but Willis will serve in a depth role regardless.

Damion Willis: Joins Bengals' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cincinnati signed Willis to its practice squad Wednesday.

Willis was waived by the Bengals on Tuesday and went unclaimed, which allowed them to add him to the practice squad. Willis' last reception came back in Week 5. For the season, he has nine receptions for 82 yards.

Damion Willis: Let go by Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals waived Willis on Tuesday.

Willis has suited up in 10 games for the Bengals this year, recording nine receptions for 82 scoreless yards. The team is activating John Ross (shoulder) from IR, so Willis is the roster casualty. If he clears waivers, he's expected to land on the practice squad.

Bengals' Damion Willis: Rejoins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals signed Willis to the active roster from the practice squad Friday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Willis spent the first seven games of the season on Cincinnati's 53-man roster. He caught nine of 14 targets for 82 yards during that stretch. The Troy product will look to make the most of his second opportunity as a depth wideout for the Bengals, but he doesn't warrant much (if any) fantasy consideration.

Damion Willis: Joins practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals signed Willis to the practice squad Thursday.

Willis was waived by the Bengals on Wednesday, and he now rejoins the team's practice squad. The rookie out of Troy could be called up to the active roster later in the season if he shows well on special teams.

Damion Willis: Drops to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals waived Willis on Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

This shouldn't be construed as a sign A.J. Green (ankle) is near a return, as Willis played just 10 offensive snaps over the last two games and drew one target. The undrafted rookie is a candidate for the team's practice squad if he clears waivers.

Bengals' Damion Willis: Gains eight yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis caught his only target for an eight-yard gain during Monday's 27-3 loss to the Steelers.

Following Willis' five-target, three-catch debut, the rookie receiver has just two catches on four targets in his last three games. Given his role as a down-roster receiver on a Bengals offense that has failed to top 20 points through the first quarter of the season, he shouldn't garner any consideration for fantasy purposes, even with a favorable matchup against Arizona's 24th-ranked pass defense on deck.

Bengals' Damion Willis: Special teams only
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis was limited to four special teams snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Willis has been bypassed by Auden Tate in the Bengals' receiving corps and is at risk of losing his roster spot once A.J. Green (ankle) returns. The good news for him is that Green won't return for Week 4, but it's a far cry from Week 1, when Willis started against the Seahawks.

Bengals' Damion Willis: Limited factor Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis had just one catch on three targets, netting six yards, in Sunday's loss to the Niners.

Willis has moved from nominal starter to afterthought now that John Ross is healthy and productive. Even Alex Erickson is getting more work right now.

Bengals' Damion Willis: Three catches Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis had three catches for 30 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. He had five targets in the passing game.

Willis nominally was the starter for the Bengals, but the real story was John Ross's breakout game. Still, he's one of the three most used receivers for the Bengals right now, behind Tyler Boyd and Ross, until A.J. Green (ankle) returns.
