LeVeon Bell, Waived by Tampa Bay

The Buccaneers have waived Bell, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The move frees up a roster spot for the activation of fellow running back Leonard Fournette (hamstring) from injured reserve. Per Greg Auman of The Athletic, if Bell clears waivers as expected, the Buccaneers can bring him back to their practice squad, but for now the team will proceed with a backfield comprised of Fournette, Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Giovani Bernard. Ronald Jones is out this week with an ankle injury.

Elijah McGuire, Cut from Chiefs' practice squad

McGuire was cut from the Chiefs' practice squad Wednesday, Pete Sweeney of reports.

Analysis: The running back joined the Chiefs' practice unit in October, but failed to crack the active roster before being cut Wednesday. McGuire has not appeared in an NFL game since 2018 and will look to find another practice squad opportunity ahead of the 2022 season.

LeVeon Bell, Minimal action in '21

Bell, who was active for Sunday's wild-card win over the Eagles but did not log a snap from scrimmage, finished the regular season with 39 carries for 101 yards and two touchdowns and five receptions for 30 yards and another score over eight games with the Ravens and Buccaneers. He also had a two-point conversion run for Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Bell saw his first regular-season action in Week 4 against the Broncos while with the Ravens and ultimately suited up for five games with Baltimore before being jettisoned after Week 10. After five weeks on the open market, the one-time Pro Bowler landed in Tampa Bay and was active for the last three games of the regular season, recording a two-point conversion rush versus his old Jets squad in Week 17 and a one-yard receiving touchdown in Week 18 versus the Panthers. Even with Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Ronald Jones (ankle) inactive for the wild-card matchup Sunday, Bell didn't see the field, so his chances of any action in Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the Rams appear slim.

Jeff Smith, Mostly special teams role in 2021

Smith caught eight of 17 targets for 113 yards in 2021.

Analysis: Smith appeared in 12 games with the Jets and featured regularly on special teams but rarely saw the field on offense. He'll be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason, which means the Jets have the option to bring Smith back at the league minimum salary, and New York may opt to do so based on Smith's special teams contributions as the gunner on kickoffs and punts.

Denzel Mims, Just eight catches in second year

Mims caught eight of 23 targets for 133 yards during the 2021 season.

Analysis: Mims was frequently in the doghouse, and his on-field play explained why. His routes were rarely crisp, and when Mims managed to get open, he was plagued by drops. It's a major indictment on his development that Mims barely saw the field down the stretch, even as the Jets were routinely without their top two or three wide receivers due to injuries. The 2020 second-round pick out of Baylor has all the physical attributes to excel in the NFL, but he's far from guaranteed a spot on the roster next season after his dreadful performance in 2021.
