The Titans waived Yancey on Friday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Yancey was a late addition to training camp and needed to make an immediate impression if he had any chance to land on the Titans' 53-man roster. While he did show flashes in joint practices against the Patriots, he was unable to make the team.
Yancey signed with Tennessee on Saturday, according to his agent.
Analysis: The Jets took Yancey in the fifth round coming out of Purdue in 2017, but he's never seen an NFL snap. He'll merely provide depth for the Titans.
Yancey was officially waived by the Jets on Tuesday.
Analysis: Yancey was originally re-signed by the Jets on the first day of 2019, and spent the past season on the practice squad. The 2017 fifth-round pick hasn't played a regular season game in his career, and logged 141 receptions, 2,344 yards and 20 touchdowns in 39 games in his college career for Purdue.
Yancey signed a future/reserve contract with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Yancey, a 2017 fifth-round selection, joined the Jets' practice squad in mid December after spending his rookie season on the Packers' practice squad. The Purdue product left school with 141 receptions, 2,344 yards and 20 touchdowns in 39 games.
Yancey was released from the Packers' practice squad on Tuesday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Yancey joined the Packers' practice squad a couple weeks ago with the Packers dealing with numerous injuries at wide receiver, so this could be a sign that both Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are on track to return after the bye week.
Yancey agreed to sign with the Packers' practice squad Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Yancey was originally cut by the Packers on Sept. 1 after spending all of the 2017 season with the team. The Green Bay receiving corps is banged up with Davante Adams (calf), Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (concussion) all dealing with injuries. If any of the three miss Sunday's game against Detroit, Yancey could be a candidate to join the active roster.
The Packers waived Yancey on Saturday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The writing was on the wall once the Packers selected three wideouts in April's draft, but Yancey will be a candidate to land back on the practice squad for a second consecutive year if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
Yancey did not record a reception in Thursday's preseason win over the Steelers.
Analysis: Yancey received just one target in Thursday's game, so he's now had a quiet two games to start the preseason. If Yancey wants to stand out among a group of young wide receivers and make the Packers' final roster, he'll have to start finding a way to make a bigger impact on the field.
Yancey caught two passes for 10 yards in Thursday's preseason opener.
Analysis: Yancey got the start Thursday with Randall Cobb (ankle) out, but he had a quiet night while nearly all the players he is competing with for roster spots made an impact. Yancey will still have a few opportunities in the coming weeks to make some noise himself.
Yancey is working with the first team as a slot receiver again Wednesday, Aaron Nagler of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Yancey has slid into first team reps thanks to Randall Cobb's ankle issues. Tuesday's criticism from Aaron Rodgers directed towards the younger receivers should serve as somewhat of a wakeup call for Yancey, whether targeted or not. Yancey won't hang onto first team reps once Cobb is back, but there's a chance he could stick with the team during final roster cuts as a reserve option in the slot.
