Los Angeles Chargers News

Jeremy Cox, Done in Denver

The Broncos cut Cox on Monday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

Analysis: The addition of second-round pick Javonte Williams signaled a need to move on from Cox, whose roster spot was made doubly redundant by the presence of fullback Andrew Beck. The 24-year-old appeared in seven games last season and was serviceable on special teams.

Justin Jackson, Facing additional competition

Jackson faces additional competition for the backup running back job after the Chargers drafted Larry Rountree in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Given the draft capital invested in Joshua Kelley last year, the assumption is the No. 3 RB job likely will come down to Jackson, newcomer Rountree and long-time practice squad candidate Darius Bradwell. The three-year pro has arguably been one of the team's more productive late-round picks in recent memory, rushing for at least 200 yards in each of his first three seasons despite never seeing more than 60 carries, but he never solidified himself as a capable fill-in option when Austin Ekeler sidelined for six games. Rountree lacks the quick-cut explosiveness that Jackson has demonstrated at the pro level, but he does seem to have a nose for the end zone having scored a career-best 14 touchdowns in a shortened 2020 season.

Melvin Gordon, Joined by second-round RB

Second-round draft pick Javonte Williams has joined Gordon in the Broncos' backfield, Ben Swanson of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The Broncos moved up five spots in the 2021 draft in order to select Williams. Per GM George Paton, Williams was "one of (the team's) favorite players in the draft" and the North Carolina product will help fill the void created by the offseason departure of Phillip Lindsay. At this stage, Gordon remains atop Denver's running back depth chart, but Williams, whose prospect profile is highlighted by his ability to run through defenders, is going to be hard to keep of the field. As a result, some form of a time-share figures to develop once Williams gets acclimated to the pro game. Also on hand in the team's backfield are Mike Boone and Royce Freeman.

Kenjon Barner, Could get another chance with Bucs?

Barner (groin) is a candidate to return to Tampa Bay on a league-minimum deal, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Barner won't have much of a place in the Buccaneers' backfield after the team decided to bring back Leonard Fournette, but his utility on special teams could allow him a shot to compete during training camp. Still currently a free agent after having ended last season on IR due to a groin injury, Barner's best chance of signing anywhere when healthy will be as an option in the return game.

Daniel Helm, Pens deal with Niners

Helm signed with the 49ers on Wednesday, Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Analysis: Helm suited up in five games -- his first NFL appearances -- for the 49ers in 2020, logging just 28 offensive snaps. The 25-year-old didn't provide much offensive upside at Duke. He'll need to battle for a roster spot during training camp.
