Braxton Berrios, Two rushing TDs in 2022

Berrios wasn't targeted in Sunday's season finale against the Dolphins. He finishes the season with 18 catches for 145 yards on 32 targets.

Analysis: Berrios took a major step back as a receiver after totaling 825 yards and five touchdowns over the previous two seasons, but the gadget player contributed in other ways. He rushed nine times for 91 yards and two touchdowns, in addition to throwing a two-yard touchdown. Berrios also had 600 kick return yards and 240 yards on punt returns. The 27-year-old receiver has one more year left on his contract with the Jets and should reprise his role as the return man and part-time player on offense in 2023.

Danny Etling, Signs back up with Green Bay

Etling signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers on Tuesday.

Analysis: Etling will sign his second reserve/future contract with the Packers in as many years. The 28-year-old made a strong impression during the 2022 preseason with Green Bay, though he never had a real chance to make the active roster and ultimately spent the entirety of this regular season on the practice squad. The 6-foot-3 signal-caller will now look to make his heading into the 2023 campaign.

J.J. Taylor, Sticking with New England

Taylor signed a reserve/future contract with the Patriots on Tuesday.

Analysis: Taylor has spent all three seasons of his NFL career with New England, though he bounced back and forth between the practice squad and active roster this regular season. As a result, the 25-year-old recorded a career-low 10 carries in 2022 while appearing in fewer than five games for the first time in his career. Taylor will now look to compete for a roster spot among the Patriots' crowded running backs corps heading into the 2023 campaign.

Chris Lacy, Given another contract by Las Vegas

The Raiders signed Lacy to a future/reserve contract Monday.

Analysis: Lacy was initially waived by Las Vegas after spending about two weeks with the team this preseason, and he re-joined the team via the practice squad in mid-August. The 6-foot-3 wideout was then elevated ahead of Saturday's regular-season finale against Kansas City, though he ultimately did not see the field. Lacy was one of 13 players to sign a reserve/future contract with the Raiders on Monday, so he'll likely compete with DJ Turner and Isaiah Zuber for a depth role heading into the 2023 season.

Isaiah Zuber, Staying in Las Vegas

The Raiders signed Zuber to a reserve/future contract Monday.

Analysis: Zuber spent the preseason with Las Vegas before being let go as part of the team's final roster cuts in late August. The 25-year-old then spent the entirety of the season on the practice squad, and he has still not played in an NFL game since the 2020 season. Zuber will now look to work his way onto the active roster heading into the 2023 campaign.
