The Jaguars waived Peake on Monday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Analysis: Peake spent his first three years in the NFL as a depth receiver with the Jets, and he latched on with Jacksonville immediately following the conclusion of the 2019 regular season. The 27-year-old special-teams option will now look for a new home in the league.

Peake signed a reserve/futures contract with Jacksonville on Tuesday.
Analysis: Peake tried out for the team in early December, and while he didn't secure a job then, he must have piqued the team's interest. The 27-year-old appeared in 13 games for the Jets in 2018.

Peake (hamstring) staged a workout with the Jaguars on Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.
Analysis: Peake appears to have fully recovered from the hamstring injury he picked up during the preseason. He'll continue searching for a depth role elsewhere in the league.

Peake suffered a hamstring injury during Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The Jets announced Peake's injury after the contest, so it's unclear when the issue cropped up. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward.
Aug 29, 2019 8:22 PM EST
Peake recorded two catches for 25 yards while appearing in 13 games in 2018.
Analysis: Peake saw the vast majority of his snaps come on special teams. He played 241 special teams snaps and just 89 offensive snaps on the year. He showed some receiving promise as a rookie in 2016 but has just 28 yards in his last 16 games. Barring large improvement he should be expected to be a reserve receiver and special teams player if he makes a roster in 2019.

Peake is expected to benefit from added snaps on offense Sunday against the Patriots with Jermaine Kearse (Achilles) inactive for the contest and Quincy Enunwa (ankle) having been moved to injured reserve earlier in the week, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Primarily a special-teams contributor this season, Peake has notched only two receptions for 25 yards through 12 games. The absences of Kearse and Enunwa will create an opening for the likes of Peake, Andre Roberts, Deontay Burnett and J.J. Jones to all see more work, but none of the quartet amounts to much more than a dart throw for fantasy purposes. No. 1 wideout Robby Anderson and top tight end Chris Herndon are far better bets to deliver useful stat lines among the Jets' pass catchers.

Peake caught his lone target for 14 yards in Sunday's 24-10 loss to Chicago.
Analysis: Peake's impact lies primarily on special teams -- this was his first reception of the season. He should continue to play an offensive snap here and there while New York battles injuries at the wide receiver position, but Peake shouldn't pique owners' interest.
Oct 28, 2018 7:15 PM EST
Peake was unable to catch his only target during Sunday's 37-17 loss to Minnesota.
Analysis: Peake has just 23 receiving yards the whole season and things don't look to be getting any brighter. Not only does Sunday bring a Chicago pass defense that has confounded opponents with its rush at times this season, but the signing of Rishard Matthews is likely to push Peake even further down the depth chart. Peake should not be on your radar.

Peake (hamstring) is a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Analysis: Peake is participating in practice after sitting out three consecutive regular season games. It's a step in the right direction for Peake, but the depth wideout's availability for Sunday's game against the Vikings remains up in the air. Whenever Peake does retake the field he's likely to play the majority of his snaps on special teams.
Oct 17, 2018 11:18 AM EST
Coach Todd Bowles has ruled Peake (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Colts, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Peake didn't participate in practice Thursday for the second straight day, so it's no surprise that he'll be sidelined for the third week in a row. In the three games he's dressed this season, Peake has logged just 13 offensive snaps compared to 42 on special teams, so his absence won't have much of an impact on New York's passing game.
Oct 11, 2018 10:05 AM EST
Peake (hamstring) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Peake has not seen game action since Week 3 against the Browns when he suffered the original hamstring injury. The fact that he was unable to practice Thursday puts his Week 6 availability in jeopardy. Andre Roberts could continue to draw more snaps if Peake misses his third consecutive contest.
Oct 11, 2018 9:27 AM EST
Peake (hamstring) will not suit up in Sunday's game against Denver, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Peake originally suffered the injury in Week 3 against the Browns and failed to suit up in Week 4. He was absent from practice Wednesday so this news isn't a big surprise. In his continued absence, Andre Roberts could draw more snaps.
Oct 4, 2018 11:37 AM EST
Peake (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Peake continues to battle a hamstring injury that held him out last week against the Jaguars, but he will likely need to ramp up his practice participation the next couple of days if he's to have any chance of making it on the field Sunday. Friday's injury report should provide a clearer picture of his status if nothing surfaces prior.
Oct 3, 2018 10:38 AM EST
Peake (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Peake's lack of availability is no surprise, given that the depth wideout was unable to participate in practice this week. As long as Peake remains sidelined, Andre Roberts could see a limited increase in snaps.
Sep 28, 2018 11:16 AM EST
Peake (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Peake has yet to participate in practice this week. The bottom receiver on Gang Green's depth chart, if Peake is unable to suit up for Sunday's game against the Jaguars the passing game is unlikely to be significantly affected. Andre Roberts could benefit from increased opportunities if Peake were to miss any time.
Sep 27, 2018 12:19 PM EST
Peake is questionable to return to Thursday's game due to a hamstring injury.
Analysis: Peake is situated at the bottom of the Jets wide receiver depth chart, so if he does not return it should not affect the passing offense in a significant manner.
Sep 20, 2018 6:14 PM EST
Peake will open the season on New York's 53-man roster after surviving Saturday's final round of cuts.
Analysis: Peake surprisingly beat out the likes of Tre McBride and Chad Hansen for one of the final spots on New York's roster. His value on special teams is probably what convinced New York to keep Peake around, but he's unlikely to see more than a handful of snaps per game on offense. The Jets will have a decision to make when fellow wide receiver ArDarius Stewart finishes his two-game suspension.
Sep 3, 2018 1:50 PM EST
Peake caught both of his targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 15-13 preseason loss to the Redskins.
Analysis: Peake scored the only touchdown for either team with a 16-yard catch on a Teddy Bridgewater pass. The third-year wideout climbed the ladder in the front corner of the end zone and managed to land in bounds for the score. He'll need more impressive plays like that to crack a Jets roster with no shortage of competition at the wide receiver position.
Aug 17, 2018 8:06 AM EST
Peake (ankle) has returned to practice and is expected to play in Thursday's matchup with the Redskins, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Peake had been dealing with an ankle injury for a couple weeks but was able to return to practice this week. He's expected to get reps with the depth units Thursday as he looks to secure a backup role on the final roster.
