Jeff Badet: Earns future contract

Washington signed Badet to a reserve/future contract Monday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Badet made his NFL debut back in Week 7 and ended up playing three games this year, logging 21 snaps on offense and receiving just one target. The 26-year-old will vie for a depth role, and his best route to a roster spot is likely through special teams.

Jeff Badet: Retained in Washington

Badet signed with Washington's practice squad Monday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Badet was cut by the Football Team's 53-man roster Saturday, and after clearing waivers, he'll stick with the practice squad. The 26-year-old wideout made his NFL debut this season and has played three games, logging 21 snaps on offense and no receptions.

Jeff Badet: Cut by Football Team

Washington waived Badet on Saturday, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Badet was cut to make room for reserve quarterback Taylor Heinicke on the active roster. He appeared in three games with Washington this season, handling 21 offensive snaps without drawing a target. The Oklahoma product could be a candidate to resurface on the practice squad.

Jeff Badet: Healthy scratch Sunday

Badet (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Badet returned from a hamstring injury last week and played a handful of offensive snaps at Detroit, but he's a healthy scratch for Week 11. Robert Foster is active for the first time this season and will work as a depth receiver for Washington.

Jeff Badet: Deemed available Sunday

Badet (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Badet practiced fully Thursday and Friday, so there was never much concern about his availability for the Week 10 matchup, despite his questionable designation. After playing only 13 offensive snaps and drawing zero targets in Washington's Week 9 loss to the Giants, Badet will likely be in store for another limited role in the passing attack Sunday.

Jeff Badet: Questionable for Week 10

Badet (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.

Analysis: Washington promoted Badet to the active roster for Week 10, after having elevated him from the practice squad as an extra player in each of the last two contests. If cleared to suit up, Badet could get the opportunity to draw his first target in the NFL.

Jeff Badet: Promoted from practice squad

Badet was promoted from Washington's practice squad to the active roster Tuesday.

Analysis: The 26-year-old was elevated from the practice squad as an extra player for each of the past two games, and he apparently showed enough to earn a longer look on the active roster. Badet played 16 offensive snaps and wasn't targeted in either contest, and he should fill a depth role in Washington's receiving corps.

Jeff Badet: Heads to practice squad

Badet reverted to Washington's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Badet was in on 13 of his team's offensive snaps Sunday against the Giants, but he failed to register a catch. He'll head back down to the practice squad after being elevated to the 53-man roster for Week 9.

November 9, 2020 8:25 PM EST

Jeff Badet: Back on active roster

Badet has been elevated to Washington's active roster, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Badet made his NFL debut two weeks ago when he was called up to play versus the Cowboys. He ended up seeing three offensive snaps but did not receive any targets. The 26-year-old is now again in line to provide depth at receiver for the team.

Jeff Badet: Doesn't stick with active roster

Badet reverted to Washington's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: The 26-year-old wideout from Oklahoma made his NFL debut against the Cowboys on Sunday, fielding three offensive snaps but having no targets thrown his way on an extremely limited workload. Steven Sims (toe) and Antonio Gandy-Golden (hamstring) are both residing on IR at the moment, but Washington still has six receivers on its active roster, making Badet expendable for the time being.

Jeff Badet: Elevates to active roster

Washington elevated Badet to the active roster Saturday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Badet entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2018 but has yet to make his NFL debut. That's in store Sunday against the Cowboys, however, as Antonio Gandy-Golden (hamstring) and Isaiah Wright (shoulder) have both been ruled out for the divisional clash. Terry McLaurin, Dontrelle Inman and Cam Sims will handle most of the reps, so Badet is simply a rotational option.

Jeff Badet: Nabs practice squad spot

Badet signed with Washington's practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: Badet had tryouts with the Bears and Cardinals in August, but his most recent on-field action came as a member of the Dallas Renegades in the XFL. He's still looking for an opportunity to make his NFL debut.

Jeff Badet: Gets tryout call Monday

Badet (groin) worked out for the Packers on Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Analysis: Badet failed to make the Vikings' roster out of camp and dealt with a groin injury in the process. Now that the 25-year-old is officially healthy, he could be a candidate for a practice squad spot considering he has no NFL regular-season experience to date.

October 7, 2019 4:44 PM EST

Jeff Badet: Fails to make roster

Badet (groin) was waived by the Vikings on Saturday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Badet was in the running for the team's third receiver, but ended up getting cut, with the Vikings keeping just four receivers on the roster. The 25-year-old could be picked up by another team, but has no NFL regular season experience.

September 1, 2019 7:36 AM EST

Jeff Badet: Out of action Saturday

Badet (groin) did not play in Saturday's preseason win over Arizona.

Analysis: Badet has had some buzz in training camp about winning a reserve wide receiver role, but any injury could ruin his chances to make the final roster.

August 25, 2019 8:36 AM EST

Jeff Badet: Limited in practice Wednesday

Badet (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Badet had missed four consecutive practices due to a groin issue, so today's limited participation is a step in the right direction. The second-year pro is competing for a depth role in Minnesota, and would be well served to return to full health as quickly as possible.

Jeff Badet: Still nursing groin injury

Badet (groin) did not participate in Saturday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Badet appeared to be past the groin injury that kept him sidelined throughout OTAs as he returned to practice earlier this week, but he missed Saturday's training camp session. If anything, the absence can likely be chalked up to a minor setback as he projects to return again in a timely manner.

July 27, 2019 6:25 PM EST

Jeff Badet: Returns to practice

Badet (groin) has returned to practice for the first day of training camp, Arif Hasan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Badet missed much of the spring OTAs due to a groin issue, but it looks like he'll be ready to go for the start of training camp. Badet (six feet, 185 pounds) has spent time with both the Panthers and Vikings since going undrafted out of Oklahoma last spring. The wideout ran a 4.27-second 40-yard dash time at his 2018 pro day, but he's viewed as mainly a gadget player than a true downfield threat, given his smallish frame.

July 23, 2019 8:01 AM EST

Jeff Badet: Misses practice Thursday

Badet (groin) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: It was reported May 4 that Badet was dealing with a groin injury, and it seemingly is serious enough to have held him out of the team's minicamp a month later. It's unclear now whether the Oklahoma product will be ready for training camp in late July, but more information should be revealed as the offseason rolls on.

June 13, 2019 4:14 PM EST

Jeff Badet: Nursing groin injury

Badet's status for the Vikings' weekend minicamp practices is uncertain due to a tweaked groin, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Badet signed with the Vikings after going undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft. However, he was unable to make the team's final 53-man roster after suffering a head injury in training camp. From there he spent some time on the Panthers' practice squad before returning to Minnesota in January. It does not sound like the Oklahoma product is dealing with anything serious, and should return to practice activities once his health allows it.
