Time up in New York

The Jets released Scott on Friday.

Analysis: Scott logged one appearance with the Jets last season, hauling in his only target for a 16-yard gain. The 2018 fourth-round pick (by Baltimore) will now search for a depth role elsewhere in the league.

Remains with Jets on future deal

Scott signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets on Monday.

Analysis: The Ravens' 2018 fourth-round pick was elevated to New York's active roster on two occasions this season, recording a 16-yard catch Week 14 during a blowout loss to Seattle. Scott will continue to provide depth at the wide receiver position heading into 2021, though his status may be tentative depending on the evaluation of New York's head coach-to-be.

Sent back to practice squad

Scott reverted to the Jets' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Scott reeled in his only target Sunday in a drubbing at the hands of the Seahawks, collecting a total of nine snaps on offense with one more on special teams. The appearance marked Scott's first since he suited up three times for the Ravens during 2019.

Makes second career catch

Scott caught a 16-yard pass on his lone target in Sunday's 40-3 loss to the Seahawks.

Analysis: Scott doubled his career catch total, as he had one catch for six yards with the Ravens last season. He was called up from the practice squad for this one with New York battling injuries to its receiving corps, and even if White sticks on the roster against the Rams in Week 15, he's unlikely to make much of an impact.

Jumps to active roster

The Jets elevated Scott to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Scott will add depth at wide receiver in Sunday's game against the Jets because Denzel Mims (personal) has been ruled out and Jamison Crowder (calf) is questionable. He hasn't played since last season, when he posted just one catch over three games with the Ravens.

Dec 12, 2020 4:22 PM EST

Demoted to practice squad

Scott reverted to the Jets' practice squad after being activated for Sunday's 35-9 loss to Kansas City, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Scott got the nod for Sunday's trip to Arrowhead Stadium, though he was not ultimately deployed in game action. The 25-year-old is yet to make an appearance this season after recording one catch in three games played for Baltimore during 2019.

Rises to active roster

The Jets elevated Scott to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Jamison Crowder (groin) is doubtful and Breshad Perriman (concussion) has already been ruled out, so Scott will act as necessary depth Sunday against the Chiefs. He may not get on the field much, however, as he's currently lined up as the No. 5 wide receiver.

Gets practice squad chance

The Jets signed Scott to the practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: Scott spent the offseason in Baltimore, but he was jettisoned amid roster cuts. The 2018 fourth-round pick will now get a chance to develop with an organization lacking for quality receiver depth.

Can't stick with Ravens

The Ravens cut Scott on Saturday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Scott spent the offseason in Baltimore, but his performance in training camp wasn't enough to earn a depth role in the team's receiver corps. The 2018 fourth-round pick was a healthy scratch for 13 of 16 games in 2019.

All clear Monday

Scott (ribs) was back as a full participant at Monday's practice, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Scott was sidelined through the weekend with the injury, but will return to practice to compete in vital practice reps. The New Mexico State product is battling for a roster spot for the 2020 campaign.

Managing ribs injury

Scott did not practice Thursday due to a ribs issue, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Scott is competing to earn a depth role in Baltimore's receiver room, so missing any amount of reps in training camp is significant. He was a healthy scratch in all but three contests last season, during which span Scott logged one catch (on three targets) for six yards.

Looking at poor roster odds

Scott faces a difficult path to earning a roster spot, SI.com's Todd Karpovich reports.

Analysis: The 2018 fourth-round pick was stashed on injured reserve as a rookie and served as a healthy scratch for 13 of 16 games last season. The Ravens have seen enough potential to keep Scott around so far, but the math could change after the team used a third-round pick on Devin Duvernay and a sixth-rounder on James Proche. With Duvernay, Marquise Brownn, Miles Boykin and Willie Snead already locked in for roster spots, Scott may end up competing with a horde of players for just one or two jobs.

Invisible again in 2019

Scott appeared in three games in 2019, catching one of three targets for six yards on 17 offensive snaps.

Analysis: The second-year wideout failed to make an impact once again in 2019 despite Baltimore having meager talent at receiver beyond Marquise Brown and Willie Snead. Scott, a former fourth-round selection, played all 17 of his offensive snaps in Week 17 when Baltimore was resting its main contributors. He's a big-bodied receiver at 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds, but his movement skills are well below average for an NFL receiver even when adjusting for his size. With that, Scott has a thin margin for error for success at this level that shrinks with each season that he fails to get on the field. Scott may have a tough time sticking on the 53-man roster in 2020 if Baltimore overhauls its receiving corps as expected.

Inactive for opener

Scott was inactive for Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

Analysis: The Ravens had five receivers active Sunday but Scott was not among them. Baltimore's top three is fairly set with Marquise Brown, Willie Snead, and Miles Boykin and the likes of Chris Moore and Seth Roberts provide depth behind them. Scott did well for himself in making the 53-man roster, but he may continue to be a healthy scratch each week barring a change to Baltimore's receiving rotation.

Strikes in preseason finale

Scott caught six of 10 passes for 87 yards and a touchdown during Thursday's 20-7 preseason win over Washington.

Analysis: After turning some heads in training camp, Baltimore gave the statuesque sophomore an extended final audition Thursday in his pursuit of making the roster. He took full advantage, more than doubling every other Raven both in targets and yards and hauling in the game-leading touchdown in the second quarter, a 24-yard shot downfield from Trace McSorley. When you're getting down to WR5 or WR6, it comes down to how many of each position a team intends to carry and how things shake out in other areas of the roster. Scott made Baltimore's brass' decision more difficult Thursday.

Catching coach's attention

Coach John Harbaugh said Friday that Scott is "right in the mix" at wide receiver.

Analysis: The 2018 fourth-round pick was stashed on injured reserve with a hamstring issue for his entire rookie season. Scott came back healthy for the offseason program and now is off to a strong start at training camp. He's still on the roster bubble, but there's clear opportunity for advancement given the lack of proven talent toward the top of Baltimore's wideout depth chart.

Jul 26, 2019 8:58 AM EST

Has another chance with team

Scott should have another chance to prove himself with the Ravens in 2019, Clifton Brown of the team's official website reports.

Analysis: The 2018 fourth-round pick didn't make much noise throughout training camp and the preseason, eventually getting stashed on injured reserve after he suffered a hamstring injury in late August. Scott should be healthy for the start of the offseason program if he isn't already, but he won't have a guaranteed stash spot this time around. His 6-foot-5 frame is unique among Baltimore wideouts, though the team could look to add more size during the offseason.

Dealing with "significant" hammy issue

Coach John Harbaugh said that Scott is dealing with a "significant" hamstring injury, freelance NFL writer Jeff Zrebiec reports.

Analysis: The Ravens didn't elaborate much besides tabbing the injury as severe. Baltimore placed Scott on injured reserve early Monday.

Aug 27, 2018 12:27 PM EST

Placed on IR

Scott (undisclosed) has been placed on injured reserve, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Baltimore found a way to retain the rookie fourth-round pick without using a roster spot on a player who didn't project for any kind of role this year. Scott reportedly struggled at practice throughout the offseason and into training camp, but he should be back in 2019 to compete for a spot with the team. Jordan Lasley, Tim White, Janarion Grant and Breshad Perriman are left to compete for what likely will be two roster spots.

Aug 27, 2018 6:32 AM EST

On roster bubble

Scott is having a quiet summer, putting him on the roster bubble despite his status as a rookie fourth-round pick, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic Baltimore reports.

Analysis: Scott is in real danger of becoming the first fourth-round pick the Ravens have ever released before Week 1 of his rookie season. Fellow rookie Jordan Lasley, a fifth-round pick, has generated far more buzz throughout the offseason and into the preseason. With Michael Crabtree, John Brown, Willie Snead and Chris Moore all considered locks, the team has a slew of players battling for what likely will be two roster spots. Scott, Lasley, Breshad Perriman and Tim White are all legitimate candidates to make the team.
