Commanders Signing Damiere Byrd

The Washington Commanders have signed free agent wide receiver Damiere Byrd following a workout, according to Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report. The veteran is entering his ninth season in the league, but he's never finished higher than the WR67 in fantasy football. He spent the last two years with the Atlanta Falcons but registered just two targets during one game in 2023. Byrd represents a low-risk signing for the Commanders, and he'll be tasked with competing for a roster spot while leaving his veteran impact on some of his younger teammates in Washington.

Texans Sign Damiere Byrd To Practice Squad

The Houston Texans signed free-agent veteran wide receiver Damiere Byrd to their practice squad on Wednesday. Byrd was released from the Atlanta Falcons' practice squad in late November after playing in just one game for the team in Week 9 against the Minnesota Vikings, when he failed to catch either of his two targets while playing 19 offensive snaps. In 14 games for the Falcons in 2022, he caught 13 of his 23 targets for 268 yards and two touchdowns. The 30-year-old will give the Texans some extra receiver depth for their Divisional Round game this Saturday after they placed Noah Brown (shoulder) on Injured Reserve earlier in the week. Byrd has played in 76 NFL games (28 starts) over eight seasons and has 130 catches for 1,689 yards and seven touchdowns in his career.

Damiere Byrd Waived By Carolina

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Damiere Byrd (hamstring) has been waived by the team. The veteran wideout was on injured reserve with a hamstring issue and received an injury settlement. Byrd wasn't a lock to make the Panthers' 53-man roster even when he was healthy but the injury put a major damper on his prospects. He's now free to sign anywhere but the hamstring issue is likely to play a factor on when/where he can sign. The veteran journeyman has totaled 1,689 receiving yards to go along with seven scores across a seven-year NFL career with five different teams.
