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.

Bumped up to active roster

Las Vegas elevated Lacy to its active roster from the practice squad Friday for Saturday's game against Kansas City.

Analysis: Lacy will have a chance to make his season debut in Week 18 after spending the majority of the campaign on the Raiders' practice squad. The undrafted wideout out of Oklahoma State caught three of 10 targets for 60 yards in seven appearances for the Lions during the 2019 campaign, but he hasn't seen regular-season action since.

Headed back to Vegas

The Raiders re-signed Lacy to the team's practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: Lacy spent just under two weeks with Las Vegas this preseason, but he has been looking for a new contract since getting waived Aug. 23. The 26-year-old will now rejoin the team's practice squad after fellow wideout Dillon Stoner (undisclosed) was placed on the practice squad reserve/injured list Thursday.

Cut by Las Vegas

The Raiders waived Lacy on Tuesday, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Lacy signed with Las Vegas after the team released Jordan Veasy two weeks ago. The undrafted product out of Oklahoma State caught three passes for 60 yards with the Lions in 2019, but he hasn't appeared in an NFL regular season game since.

Joins the Raiders

Lacy signed a contract with the Raiders on Wednesday.

Analysis: The fifth-year receiver heads to Las Vegas after the team recently released Jordan Veasy. Lacy caught three passes for 60 yards for the Lions in 2019, but has otherwise found himself jumping between numerous practice squads since joining the league in 2018. The 6-foot-3 pass catcher is in line to compete for a roster spot with Tyron Johnson, Dillon Stoner (undisclosed) and Isaiah Zuber, among others.

Let go by Chicago

The Bears waived Lacy on Monday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Brad spent the preseason competing for a depth role in Chicago's wide receiver room, but he will now have to vie for a chance elsewhere. From 2018-19 he appeared in eight contests for the Lions.

Targeted five times

Lacy caught three passes for 26 yards in the Bears' 41-15 preseason loss to the Bills on Saturday.

Analysis: In a game that Chicago struggled to move the ball through the air, Lacy's 26 yards placed him third on the team in receiving. However, he's still battling with a number of other receivers in the hope of making the regular-season roster as a depth option.

Joins Bears

Lacy signed with the Bears on Sunday.

Analysis: Lacy will try to make the roster as a depth option at wide receiver. He has made eight NFL appearances -- all with the Lions -- and caught three of 11 targets for 60 yards in that limited action.

May 16, 2021 1:16 PM EST


Waived by Dallas

Lacy was waived by the Cowboys on Friday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: After landing a spot on the team's reserves/future list in January, Lacy will leave Dallas before getting the opportunity to see the field. The receiver last appeared in a matchup in 2019, during which he caught three of his 10 targets for 60 yards in seven games with Detroit. Lacy will try to earn a depth wideout spot with another team for this year.

Mar 19, 2021 1:29 PM EST


Heads to Dallas

The Cowboys signed Lacy to the team's reserves/future list, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Lacy will join the Cowboys for the 2021 season. Jon'Vea Johnson will also join the 24-year-old as an additional receiver, both of whom are likely just depth for Dallas.

Jan 4, 2021 12:49 PM EST


Signs with practice squad

The Cowboys signed Lacy to the practice squad Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Lacy played eight games for the Lions over the last two seasons, catching three passes for 60 yards and contributing as a kick returner. He's likely just depth for the Cowboys, as they still have six healthy wide receivers on the active roster.

Lands on waivers

The Lions waived Lacy on Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The Lions added Quintez Cephus in the fifth round of April's draft, so Lacy had a steeper hill to climb during training camp. Lacy is considered a practice-squad candidate if he makes it through waivers.

Sep 4, 2020 6:28 PM EST


Back in Detroit

The Lions re-signed Lacy on Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Analysis: Detroit waived Lacy earlier this month, but the team has already now seen fit to bring him back. The 24-year-old appeared in seven games with the team in 2019, during which span he logged three catches for 60 yards.

Aug 19, 2020 5:36 PM EST


Waived by Detroit

The Lions have waived Lacy, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Lacy -- joined the team as an undrafted free agent in 2018 -- caught three passes for 60 yards in seven games with the Lions in 2019. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder will now look to secure a depth wideout role with another team.

Leads team in targets

Lacy caught two of seven targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: It was Lacy who ultimately led the team in targets during a game in which Kenny Golladay (concussion) hit the locker room early. While his final output was a disappointment given his usage rate, Lacy almost had a wide-open 50-plus-yard touchdown that was prevented by a Packers cornerback who had no choice but to commit pass interference. In any case, the 23-year-old will now finish the 2019 campaign with three catches (10 targets) for 60 yards and no touchdowns. While Lacy is under contract with Detroit for one more season, it's possible he'll once again have to earn his spot on the depth chart next summer depending on who the Lions might add to the team's receiving corps this offseason.

No catches in first career start

Lacy was targeted once but did not record a catch during Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: Lacy got another chance in the passing game during his first career start, but he was unable to make a splash play like he did last week against the Buccaneers. He'll at least have one more chance of serving as the team's No. 3 wideout during the season finale Sunday against Green Bay.

Dec 23, 2019 7:22 PM EST


Makes noise on sole catch

Lacy secured one of two targets for 48 yards in the Lions' 38-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Analysis: Lacy came into the contest with a chance to presumably make an impact as a No. 3 option behind Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola, but he ended up being minimally targeted by rookie quarterback David Blough. However, Lacy's late-third-quarter catch served as the first of his career and produced a game-long gain for the Lions. The second-year wideout will look to make a bigger impact in a Week 16 battle versus the Broncos.

Dec 15, 2019 9:01 PM EST


Mostly used on special teams

Lacy logged three offensive snaps but was not targeted during Thursday's 24-20 loss to the Bears.

Analysis: Lacy was signed to the active roster in the wake of Marvin Hall's (foot) placement on injured reserve, but the majority of his playing time came on special teams. While he could get touches if he continues to get snaps as a kickoff returner, Lacy is unlikely to make many plays on offense as long as Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola stay healthy.

Nov 29, 2019 11:20 AM EST


Moves to active roster

The Lions signed Lacy to a contract Wednesday.

Analysis: Lacy's spot on the 53-man roster comes following Detroit's decision to place Marvin Hall (foot) on injured reserve. Lacy will serve as the team's No. 4 receiver behind Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola.

Nov 27, 2019 6:38 PM EST


Signs with Lions' practice squad

Lacy was signed to the Lions' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Lacy seemingly entered the 2019 season as the Lions' clear No. 4 receiver, but he was ultimately waived prior to Week 3 after logging five total snaps on offense compared to 31 on special teams. Meanwhile, the team has refused to part ways with Travis Fulgham, who resides on the active roster but has been a healthy scratch all three weeks of this season. If there's a depth receiver in Detroit to keep an eye on, it's apparent Fulgham is the one the Lions view as the best long-term option.
