Minimal production in 2022

Conley recorded four receptions on five targets for 46 yards across seven games during the 2022 season.

Analysis: Conley began the season with the Texans and also spent time with the Chiefs. However, the Titans signed him on Oct. 25, and he bounced between the team's practice squad and active roster for the rest of the campaign. Conley will hit free agency this offseason and will likely battle for a roster spot as a depth receiver to begin 2023.

First catch with Titans

Conley recorded one catch on one target for 27 yards in Sunday's 36-22 loss to Jacksonville.

Analysis: Conley has bounced around Tennessee's roster for much of the season but was active in the absence of Treylon Burks (concussion). He finished third among the team's receiving corps with 32 offensive snaps, but he still managed only one target. Conley's role will shrink further once Burks is able to return to the field.

Joins active roster

Conley was signed to the Titans' 53-man roster Saturday, Ben Arthur of reports.

Analysis: Conley earned the promotion with Treylon Burks (concussion) and C.J. Board (ribs) out Sunday against Jacksonville. He'll likely operate as the team's No. 3 or No. 4 wideout behind Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, while Racey McMath also joined the 53-man roster after being activated off IR on Saturday.

Back with practice squad

Conley signed with the Titans' practice squad Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Conley was waived by the team Wednesday, but he's back for another stint in Tennessee. The veteran receiver has played in two games for the Titans this season, seeing one target but failing to haul it in. He'll now work to earn a chance back with the active roster.

Let go by Tennessee

The Titans waived Conley on Wednesday.

Analysis: Conley helped fill in for Tennessee's banged-up receiving corps in Weeks 8 and 9, though he was targeted just once over 22 offensive snaps during this span. The 30-year-old was then ruled a healthy scratch ahead of Sunday's win over Denver, and he'll now look to record his first catch of the season elsewhere. Conley caught 22 of his 37 targets for 323 yards and two touchdowns over 16 regular-season games with Houston last year, but he'll likely have to work his way up while on another team's practice squad in 2022.

Healthy scratch Sunday

Conley (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Broncos.

Analysis: Conley was active for each of the team's last two contests, seeing one target but failing to haul it in, while he played 22 snaps on offense. The veteran wideout has fallen down a peg on the team's positional depth chart with the return of Treylon Burks (foot/toe).

Joins Tennessee's active roster

Tennessee signed Conley to its active roster off Kansas City's practice squad Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Conley started the season on the Texans' practice squad and was elevated to the active roster for two games before being let go. He then joined Kansas City's practice squad at the beginning of October but was never added to the active roster. Conley will now join the Titans, who currently have two wideouts on IR and may be without Kyle Phillips (hamstring) for a second straight contest.

Returns to Kansas City

Conley signed with Chiefs' practice squad Thursday, Charles Goldman of Chiefs Wire reports.

Analysis: Conley was released from the Texans' practice squad Tuesday, after appearing in two games for the team this season, while appearing in 16 for them in 2021. The 29-year-old was drafted by the Chiefs in 2015 and played with them through the 2018 season.

Let go Tuesday

Conley was released from the Texans' practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Conley appeared in two games for the Texans this season, receiving two targets but catching neither. The veteran receiver will now work to find an opportunity elsewhere.

Oct 4, 2022 3:11 PM EST

Heads back to practice squad

Conley reverted to the Texans' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Conley was on the field for 20 of the Texans' 63 offensive snaps while playing one snap on special teams during Sunday's loss to the Broncos. However, he didn't record any stats and will head back to the team's practice squad.

Sep 19, 2022 2:44 PM EST

Up from the practice squad again

The Texans elevated Conley from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Analysis: Conley was elevated for Week 1 as well and played 10 snaps, but he didn't record a catch on two targets. The 2015 third-round pick played 16 games for the Texans in 2021 and caught 22 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns, so his familiarity with Houston's offensive system is clearly important early on in 2022. Conley can be elevated only three times before needing to be signed to the active roster for good.

Sep 17, 2022 3:43 PM EST

Back to practice squad

Conley reverted to the Texans practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Conley failed to produce any stats, aside from two targets, in his 10 snaps on offense in Week 1 against the Colts. The veteran receiver will work to earn another chance to suit up in Week 2 against the Broncos.

Sep 12, 2022 3:41 PM EST

Active for gameday

Conley was activated for Week 1 and played 10 snaps in a 20-20 tie with the Colts.

Analysis: Conley was elevated from the practice squad and leaped over Phillip Dorsett, who played just four snaps. He played 16 games for the Texans in 2021, so Conley he has the system knowledge to move between the practice squad and active roster.

Sep 12, 2022 6:17 AM EST

Up from practice squad

Conley has been elevated from Houston's practice squad ahead of Sunday's season opener against the Colts.

Analysis: Conley, who caught 22 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games for the Texans last season, is back in the mix for Week 1 snaps, though he's a speculative fantasy option at this stage, while working in a wideout corps headed by Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins.

Sep 10, 2022 2:40 PM EST

Returns to Texans' practice squad

Conley was signed to the Texans' practice squad Monday, DJ Bien-Aime of reports.

Analysis: Conley was released by the team Friday, but he will now replace Marlon Mack on practice squad after Mack was released Monday. Conley played in 16 games with the Texans in 2021, catching 22 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns.

Sep 5, 2022 7:23 AM EST

Let go by Texans

The Texans have released Conley.

Analysis: In a corresponding move, the Texans signed tight end O.J. Howard. Conley was released by Houston on Tuesday, then re-sign with team on Thursday and was let go again Friday. Expect to see the wideout's name pop up once again on the NFL transaction wire in the coming days.

Sep 2, 2022 1:55 PM EST

Rejoins Houston

The Texans re-signed Conley on Thursday.

Analysis: Conley was released by Houston on Tuesday, but he finds himself back with the team now that further roster spots have been opened up. The experienced veteran has an opportunity for significant snaps behind Brandin Cooksand Nico Collins with the Texans, though Chris Moore, Tyler Johnson and Phillip Dorsett are also around to handle depth work.

Sep 1, 2022 11:20 AM EST

Cut by Texans

The Texans released Conley on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

Analysis: Conley is an experienced starter who ran with the first-team offense this preseason, though he might've been with the backups if the Texans hadn't been resting top receiver Brandin Cooks. The team likely saves some money and cap space by going with a younger guy instead of Conley, assuming the veteran isn't re-signed in the coming days. Chris Moore could be Houston's No. 3 receiver behind Cooks and Nico Collins to start the season.

Aug 30, 2022 3:30 PM EST

Showing well in camp

Conley is off to a strong start at camp, John Harris of the Texans' official site reports.

Analysis: Harris notes Conley's been a difficult cover in one-on-ones and is making catches at every level. He was also featured extensively during Houston's two-minute drill, reaching high and behind him on a fourth down catch to extend the drive. Conley was the fifth most targeted receiver in 2021 and was headed for a similar fate in 2022, but the John Metchie (illness) situation plus Danny Amendola's retirement reshuffled the depth chart behind Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins. Conley, who ranked third in receiving yards in 2021, is in the mix to be the primary slot receiver this coming season.

Aug 3, 2022 5:41 AM EST

Returns on one-year deal

Conley (knee) signed a one-year contract with the Texans on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

Analysis: Conley's first year in Houston was hardly a success as the veteran wide receiver saw a dramatic drop in opportunities after two years as the Jaguars' deep threat. Part of that could simply be due to the Texans' putrid passing offense, but it's hard to have much optimism for Conley's future given the 28-year-old set a four-year low in both receptions and receiving yards.
