Drops to waivers

The Jets waived Chesson on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The 2017 fourth-round pick hasn't been able to get his footing in the NFL and last played in the 2018 season. He spent last season on Washington's practice squad, and Chesson could be headed for a similar assignment this year.

Lands with Jets

The Jets signed Chesson to a reserve/future contract Thursday.

Analysis: Chesson spent the entire 2019 regular season on Washington's practice squad. He'll now get a chance to impress in New York during the offseason.

Practice squad contract expires

Chesson (undisclosed) had his practice squad contract with the Redskins expire Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Analysis: Chesson joined Washington's practice squad in early September but landed on the injured list with the undisclosed injury in October. The 26-year-old appeared in 12 games apiece with Kansas City and Washington his his first two seasons, but he never saw the field in 2019.

Placed on injured list

Lands on Washington's practice squad

Chesson signed with the Redskins' practice squad Monday, J.P. Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Analysis: Chesson has appeared in 24 games over his two-year career -- 12 for Kansas City and 12 for Washington -- logging three catches for 25 yards. The 25-year-old operated primarily on special teams for Washington last season and will now look to develop as a receiver on their practice squad.

Catches one pass in 12 games

Chesson caught one pass for seven yards in 12 games during the 2018 season, playing 268 snaps on special teams and seven on offense.

Analysis: Selected by Kansas City at No. 139 overall in the 2017 draft, Chesson may already be resigned to carving out a career on special teams. He turned 25 in December and likely will need to battle for his roster spot in 2019.

Promoted to active roster

Chesson was signed to Washington's active roster from the practice squad, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Chesson's signing comes following the news that Jamison Crowder (ankle) is expected to miss multiple weeks. The second-year wideout rejoins the Redskins' 53-man roster after being waived in Week 2, and will serve a depth role against the Cowboys on Sunday. Though an opportunity for offensive snaps is available, it appears likely that Chesson will predominantly play on special teams.

Waived by Redskins

Chesson was waived by the Redskins on Monday.

Analysis: Chesson was promoted to Washington's active roster prior to Week 2 but did not record a statistic. He will go through the waiver process and become a free agent if unclaimed.

Promoted to active roster

Chesson was promoted to Washington's 53-man roster Wednesday.

Analysis: Chesson's promotion to the Redskins' active roster immediately follows the placement of fellow depth wideouts Cam Sims (ankle) and Trey Quinn (ankle) on injured reserve. The 2017 fourth-rounder is likely to predominantly play on special teams, but could see limited offensive snaps due to Washington's lack of depth at the receiver position.

Sep 12, 2018 4:12 PM EST

Waived by Chiefs

Chesson was waived by the Chiefs on Saturday, the team's official website reports.

Analysis: A fourth-round pick last year, Chesson finished his rookie season with two catches for 18 yards in 12 games. He did log 215 snaps on special teams, which should help his case when he looks for work in the future.
