Signs futures deal

Browning signed a reserve/future deal with the Bengals on Tuesday.

Analysis: Browning joined the Bengals this offseason after spending his first two seasons in the NFL on the Vikings' practice squad. He was elevated to the active roster twice during the 2021 campaign, but he's yet to make his NFL debut.

Back to practice squad

Browning reverted to Cincinnati's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Browing was elevated to the Bengals' active roster ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Browns, but he failed to sniff the field. He's yet to make his NFL debut.

Elevated from practice squad

The Bengals elevated Browning to the active roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns.

Analysis: Browning was also elevated ahead of Week 17 but was inactive against Kansas City. However, he should serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind Brandon Allen on Sunday since Joe Burrow (knee/rest) will be held out.

Sent back to practice squad

Browning reverted to the Bengals' practice squad Monday.

Analysis: Browning was put on the active roster ahead of Week 17 in case Brandon Allen wasn't able to return from the COVID list. The Washington product will have to keep waiting for an opportunity to make his NFL debut.

Inactive against Kansas City

Browning (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Chiefs, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Analysis: Browning was elevated from the Bengals' practice squad to the active roster Saturday. However, that was likely insurance for Brandon Allen (illness), who was also activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday. Browning has not been active for a game this season.

Moves to active roster

Browning was elevated to the active roster Saturday, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Analysis: It's a little curious the Bengals will have three quarterbacks active for Sunday's tilt against the Chiefs, but with no negative news regarding the status of starter Joe Burrow, don't expect Browning or No. 2 QB Brandon Allen to see much time on the field.

Joins Cincinnati's practice squad

The Bengals signed Browning to their practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Browning spent the last two seasons on the Vikings' practice squad, but he was never promoted to the active squad. The ex-Husky threw 94 touchdowns across four collegiate seasons.

Cut by Vikings

Browning was waived by the Vikings on Tuesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Browning had a strong showing early in training camp, but he struggled in all three preseason contests. The Vikings will attempt to bring him back via the practice squad if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Struggles again in preseason finale

Browning was just 2-of-8 passing for 41 yards in Saturday's preseason loss at Kansas City.

Analysis: Browning had drawn praise in camp, but he struggled in all three preseason games. The Vikings may look to sign a veteran quarterback to back up Kirk Cousins with 2021 third-round pick Kellen Mond having an uneven preseason.

Aug 27, 2021 10:30 PM EST


Continued lackluster peformance

Browning was 8-of-15 passing for 82 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Saturday's preseason loss to the Colts. Browning and Kellen Mond's lackluster performance led head coach Mike Zimmer to leave open the possibility of the team signing a veteran backup to Kirk Cousins, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Browning had drawn praise in camp, but he struggled in the first preseason game (including an ugly pick-six interception) and then followed with a lackluster effort. Kellen Mond also struggled, so the Vikings may not feel secure about their backup options to Kirk Cousins.

Opportunity for more reps

Browning will receive all the reps at quarterback with Kirk Cousins (undisclosed), Kellen Mond (illness) and Nate Stanley sidelined due to the COVID-19 protocols, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Mond tested positive for the virus, while Cousins and Stanley are sidelined until they clear the protocols as apparent close contacts, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. Browning, a 2019 UDFA, faces long odds to make the season-opening roster, but he'll have an opportunity to showcase himself with the other quarterbacks out of the picture for the immediate future.

Receives future deal

The Vikings signed Browning to a reserve/future contract Monday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: An undrafted rookie in 2019, Browning has spent the last two seasons on the Vikings' practice squad. The 24-year-old quarterback will compete to be Kirk Cousins' backup in 2021.

Jan 4, 2021 11:56 AM EST


Makes practice squad

The Vikings signed Browning to the practice squad Tuesday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Analysis: Minnesota waived Browning amid roster cuts over the weekend, and he'll now begin a second straight season on the team's practice squad. Fellow quarterback Nate Stanley will be around to provide competition.

Sep 8, 2020 11:25 AM EST


Shifts to waivers

Browning was waived by the Vikings on Saturday, Craig Peters and Eric Smith of the Vikings' official site reports.

Analysis: Browning couldn't beat out Sean Mannion to be Kirk Cousins' backup, so he could spend a second straight season on the Vikings' practice squad assuming he clears waivers.

Sep 5, 2020 3:57 PM EST


Signs reserve/future deal

Browning signed a reserve/future contract with the Vikings on Sunday.

Analysis: This move will give Minnesota the inside track on retaining Browning next season in a practice squad role. The 23-year-old quarterback will try to make the team out of camp next season.

Jan 12, 2020 4:15 PM EST


Remains in Minnesota

Browning signed with the Vikings' practice squad on Sunday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Analysis: Browning received the largest signing bonus ever for an undrafted free agent back in April, but he ended up being waived ahead of Saturday's roster deadline. The 23-year-old played in only two preseason games and completed 10 of 13 passes for 64 yards with one interception.

Sep 2, 2019 11:44 AM EST


Waived by Vikings

Browning was waived by Minnesota on Saturday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Browning made headlines when he was given the largest signing bonus ever for an undrafted free agent back in April. He was battling for the backup quarterback spot in Minnesota and ultimately lost out to Sean Mannion. There's a chance Browning gets picked up off waivers by another team, but if not he'll be a strong practice squad candidate for several clubs.
