Receives promotion

The Cardinals promoted Baylis to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Baylis will operate as Arizona's No. 3 tight end while Darrell Daniels (ankle) is on injured reserve. He's suited up in three games for the Cardinals this season, playing exactly six snaps on offense in each targetless outing.

Inks deal with Cardinals

Baylis signed a contract with the Cardinals via their practice squad Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Baylis has spent the entire season with the Cardinals, up and down between the 53-man roster and the practice squad. He's seen action in two games, logging 12 snaps on offense and 16 snaps on special teams over that span. Baylis could be called upon for Thursday's game against the Seahawks, as Maxx Williams and Darrell Daniels are both questionable for the contest with ankle injuries.

Back with Arizona's practice squad

Baylis signed to the Cardinals' practice squad Monday.

Analysis: The 26-year-old was promoted from Arizona's practice squad in mid-October and was waived last week, but he'll return to the organization. Baylis has played 16 offensive snaps in three games for the Cardinals this season.

Oct 27, 2020 2:47 PM EST


Promoted from practice squad

Baylis was promoted to the Cardinals' active roster from the practice squad, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: The 26-year-old was elevated from the practice squad as an extra player for Week 5 and played five offensive snaps, but he officially signed to the active roster ahead of Monday's matchup with the Cowboys. Baylis could be used as an extra blocker at tight end, though he figures to have a minor role with Darrell Daniels, Dan Arnold and Jordan Thomas all healthy.

Oct 19, 2020 1:42 PM EST


Relegated to practice squad

Baylis has reverted to Arizona's practice squad after suiting up for Sunday's 30-10 win against the Jets, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: The 26-year-old tight end was called up for a one-game appearance on the active roster, fielding four offensive snaps and nine special-teams snaps during the win over New York. Baylis has made seven regular-season appearances for three different teams since 2017, but it does not seem that his latest stint will become any sort of enduring trend based on the Cardinals' latest transaction.

Oct 12, 2020 5:28 PM EST


Elevated to active roster

Baylis was promoted to the Cardinals' active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The 26-year-old signed with Arizona's practice squad in late September and will join the active roster as an extra player for Sunday's game against the Jets. Baylis could provide extra depth at tight end if Darrell Daniels (thigh) is unable to play.

Signs with practice squad

The Cardinals signed Baylis to the practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: The Cardinals had a vacancy on the practice squad after the Eagles signed Hakeem Butler, so Baylis will add depth at tight end. He played in five games with the Packers in 2019 but didn't receive a target.

Sep 29, 2020 1:56 PM EST


Signs with Green BAy

Bayless agreed to a contract with the Packers on Tuesday.

Analysis: Baylis spent the 2020 season joined the Packers' 53-man roster prior to Week 3 and remained there through Week 8. However, he failed to see any action on the field. He then spent the rest of the season on the team's practice squad. The 26-year-old is now set to spend the offseason in Green Bay and look to earn a spot on the team.

Jan 21, 2020 4:38 PM EST


Promoted before MNF

The Packers promoted Baylis to the active roster Monday.

Analysis: Robert Tonyan (hip) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Lions, so Baylis will suit up to serve as depth. In two games this season, Baylis played just one offensive snap compared to 13 on special teams.
