John Brown, Reverts to practice squad

Brown was reverted to the Buccaneers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Brown saw five offensive snaps but was never targeted. After stints with Oakland, Denver and Jacksonville this season, Brown joined the Buccaneers' practice squad on Jan. 13th. With Tampa Bay's season over, Brown will work to rebound from his catch-less 2021 next season.

John Brown, Elevated from practice squad

The Buccaneers elevated Brown from their practice squad Saturday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Brown joined Tampa Bay's practice squad Jan. 13 but didn't join the active roster for last week's wild-card win over Philadelphia. The 31-year-old could carve out a slight role in the passing game if Cyril Grayson (hamstring) is ruled out, but he's unlikely to see a significant target share in Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the Rams.

Eno Benjamin, Manages 160 yards from scrimmage

Benjamin notched 34 carries for 118 yards and one touchdown, gathered in six of seven targets for 42 yards and returned seven kickoffs for 162 yards in nine appearances during the 2021 campaign.

Analysis: A 2020 seventh-round pick, Benjamin filled in when injuries impacted the Cardinals' skill-position ranks this season. Most of his usage occurred in games in which one of fellow running backs James Conner or Chase Edmonds was sidelined, but Benjamin wasn't very efficient on the ground, averaging 3.5 yards per carry. On a positive note, though, Benjamin ranked first on the team with 23.1 yards per kick return among Cards with at least five opportunities. With both Conner and Edmonds set to be unrestricted free agents in the offseason, Benjamin could have a more prominent role in 2022, depending on the composition of the backfield following free agency and the draft.

John Brown, Could play against Rams?

Coach Bruce Arians suggested Wednesday that Brown could be called up from the practice squad for Sunday's playoff game against the Rams, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Brown, who worked with Arians in Arizona, signed with the Bucs' practice squad last week but didn't get the call for their wild-card win over the Eagles. It's possible he enters the mix this week, especially if Breshad Perriman has any setbacks with his hip injury and Cyril Grayson is out another week with a hamstring injury. Still, it'd likely just be a part-time role for the 31-year-old Brown, who spent time with the Raiders, Broncos and Jaguars in 2021.

Rondale Moore, Handful of grabs

Moore caught five of seven targets for 32 yards in Monday night's 34-11 wild-card round loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Moore, making his first appearance since suffering an ankle injury in Week 15, trailed only Christian Kirk in all major receiving categories for the Cardinals. Although his rookie campaign is now over, Moore finished the regular season with 54 catches on 64 targets for 435 yards and a touchdown in 14 games. He also rushed 18 times for 76 yards. Given his unique skill set, Arizona will surely aim to incorporate Moore more often next season, when it's unclear whether free agents Christian Kirk and A.J. Green will return to the team's receiving corps. While his speed occasionally flashed, Moore will need to develop into more of a downfield threat to improve his value, however, with his 7.2 yards per offensive touch evidencing his presence around the line of scrimmage. The second-rounder may also continue to be involved on special teams, where he returned 21 punts for 171 yards and 13 kickoffs for 291 yards this term.
