Signs reserve/future contract

Grayson signed a reserve/future contract with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Grayson will remain with the Super Bowl champs after spending the majority of the season on their practice squad. The 27-year-old was active for three games in 2020 but failed to record a reception.

Heads back to practice squad

Tampa Bay restored Grayson to the team's practice squad Friday.

Analysis: After suiting up with the team through three games this season, Grayson was unable to catch a single one of his three targets. The LSU product is heading back to the practice squad and won't be able to add to his 42 snaps on offense.

Jan 29, 2021 2:21 PM EST

Placed on injured list

Grayson (undisclosed) was moved to the Buccaneers' practice squad injured list Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: It has yet to be revealed what variety of injury is beleaguering Grayson, but the LSU product now leaves the fold as a depth WR option for Tampa Bay. The LSU product has gone without a reception over three targets on 42 offensive snaps this season, adding a 20-yard kick return against the Packers in a Week 6 rout.

Jettisoned from practice squad

The Buccaneers cut Grayson from the practice squad Monday.

Analysis: The Bucs also let go wide receiver Josh Pearson. Grayson played in three games with the Buccaneers this season but failed to catch a pass over 42 snaps on offense.

Dec 21, 2020 2:31 PM EST

Removed from COVID-19 list

The Buccaneers activated Grayson (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Grayson will now be eligible to resume participating in practice squad activities. Prior to being placed on the COVID-19 list Nov. 14, Grayson had appeared in two games for Tampa Bay while also being inactive, but on the 53-man roster, for two contests.

Nov 19, 2020 2:41 PM EST

Placed on reserve/COVID list

Tampa Bay has placed Grayson on the reserve/COVID list, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Analysis: Grayson is currently on the Buccaneers' practice squad. It is unknown if he has actually tested positive for the illness or just had close contact with someone who has.

Nov 14, 2020 10:24 AM EST

Back in Tampa

Grayson signed a contract with the Buccaneers' practice squad Wednesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Grayson was cut by the team Tuesday to make room for Antonio Brown, but he quickly returned to the team. Grayson has suited up in three games this season with Tampa Bay, failing to haul in any of his three targets. The LSU product will replace John Hurst on the practice squad.

Nov 4, 2020 6:37 PM EST

Let go following AB addition

The Buccaneers cut Grayson on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: This opened up a spot on the 53-man roster for the Buccaneers to activate Brown from the reserve/suspension list Tuesday. Grayson has suited up in three games with the Bucs this year, and he was targeted three times but didn't record a reception. The 26-year-old wideout is a practice squad candidate.

Nov 3, 2020 1:53 PM EST

Inactive Week 7

Grayson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 7 tilt against the Raiders, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The reserve receiver/returner saw some action from scrimmage in Week 6 and has also logged time as a returner this season, but he'll be in street clothes with the Bucs receiver corps at full health Sunday.

Oct 25, 2020 11:43 AM EST

Sees action from scrimmage

Grayson failed to bring in either of his two targets and returned one kickoff for 20 yards in the Buccaneers' 38-10 win over the Packers on Sunday.

Analysis: Grayson logged 12 snaps on offense overall but came up empty, with his only production limited to his one kickoff return. The second-year LSU product is likely to either head back to the practice squad or continue to play a minimal role when active, unless multiple injuries simultaneously strike the receiver corps.

Oct 19, 2020 5:29 PM EST

Signs with active roster

The Buccaneers signed Grayson to the active roster Tuesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Grayson was on the team's practice squad and has only suited up once in Week 2 against the Panthers. The Buccaneers' wide receiver corps has been torched with injuries, as Mike Evans (ankle), Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Scotty Miller (hip) are all battling injuries heading into Thursday's game versus the Bears. Depending on how their respective recoveries progress, Grayson could enjoy a decent workload Thursday along with Tyler Johnson and Jaydon Mickens.

Oct 6, 2020 12:31 PM EST

Logs one target in win

Grayson failed to bring in his only target during the Buccaneers' 31-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Analysis: Grayson was active with Chris Godwin (concussion) sidelined, and the second-year wideout actually logged 18 scrimmage snaps. However, the LSU product unsurprisingly saw little of quarterback Tom Brady's attention in what was Grayson's third professional game. Godwin has cleared concussion protocol and is expected to be available for Sunday's Week 3 road matchup against the Broncos, so Grayson is candidate to potentially return to the practice squad.

Sep 22, 2020 8:23 PM EST

Sent to practice roster

Grayson reverted to the Saints' practice squad.

Analysis: Both Grayson and Bennie Fowler were elevated to the active roster for Week 1's win over the Buccaneers, although Fowler the only one to get on the field. Now, Michael Thomas (ankle) is expected to miss multiple games, so both receivers could be brought back up soon.

Sep 15, 2020 6:45 PM EST

Inactive against Saints

Grayson (coach's decision) is inactive for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Grayson was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, presumable as insurance for Mike Evans (hamstring). However, with Evans able to suit up Sunday, Grayson is inactive.

Sep 13, 2020 12:23 PM EST

Elevated from practice squad

Grayson was promoted from the practice squad to the Buccaneers' 55 man roster Saturday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: It's no guarantee that Grayson will be one of the 48 players active for the team's Week 1 contest against the Saints. That decision will likely be determined by Mike Evans' (hamstring) ability to play, as he's currently expected to be a game-time decision. Even if Grayson does suit up, he figures to serve solely in a depth role.

Sep 12, 2020 12:16 PM EST

Moves to practice squad

Grayson cleared waivers Sunday and signed with the Buccaneers' practice squad, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Grayson made his NFL debut in Week 16 last season but didn't make much of an impact. The Buccaneers' wideouts were hit by an injury bug late last year, and Grayson likely won't be activated unless a similar situation plays out.

Sep 9, 2020 7:17 PM EST

Heads to waiver wire

The Buccaneers waived Grayson on Friday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Grayson played for the Bucs in Weeks 16 and 17, catching one pass for three yards in the latter contest. However, the receiver room became too crowded with the draft addition of Tyler Johnson (undisclosed). If Grayson clears waivers, he'll likely land on the practice squad.

Sep 4, 2020 7:38 PM EST

PIcked up by Bucs

Grayson was signed off the Cowboys' practice squad by the Buccaneers on Monday, Jenna Laine of reports.

Analysis: With Chris Godwin and Mike Evans both dealing with hamstring issues, Grayson has been added to the Bucs' roster to help provide depth at wide receiver. This will be the LSU product's first stint in on an NFL roster after going undrafted in 2018.

Dec 16, 2019 4:51 PM EST

Added to Dallas practice squad

Grayson signed with the Cowboys' practice squad Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Grayson will provide some receiver depth after Cedrick Wilson suffered a knee injury in the Week 14 loss to the Bears. The Louisiana native has yet to appear in an NFL game.

Dec 10, 2019 8:36 AM EST

Waived by Saints

Grayson was waived by the Saints on Friday, Mike Triplett of reports.

Analysis: Grayson was hoping to provide receiving depth, while also contributing on special teams for the Saints' final 53-man roster. However, the 25-year-old was unable to make enough of an impression. Should he go unclaimed off waivers, he could potentially land on the team's practice squad.
