Let go by Raiders

Veasy was released by the Raiders on Wednesday.

Analysis: After he signed with Las Vegas in May, Veasy now becomes a free agent, while the team signed fellow wide receiver Chris Lacy in a corresponding move. The 27-year-old has spent his first five years in the NFL bouncing between practice squads and has yet to record a reception as a professional.

Signs with Las Vegas

The Raiders signed Veasy on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Veasy appeared in his first two NFL contests last year with the Texans, totaling 22 snaps on offense and 24 on special teams. The only counting stat the 26-year-old accrued was a recovered fumble from teammate Rex Burkhead. The Raiders have revamped their wideout corps this offseason, so Veasy will likely have an uphill battle to make Las Vegas' initial 53-man roster.

Back on Houston practice squad

Veasy reverted to the Texans' practice squad Monday.

Analysis: Veasy played nine snaps on offense and six on special teams. He recovered a Rex Burkhead fumble in the third quarter but put up no other stats.

Limited run on active roster

Veasy was not targeted in Sunday's 23-7 loss to the 49ers.

Analysis: Veasy and fellow practice squad member Jalen Camp were promoted to the active roster for the game, but neither receiver was targeted. Veasy played just nine snaps while Camp was on the field for 21 plays.

Elevated from practice squad

Veasy was elevated to the Texans' active roster from the practice squad for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: Veasy saw the field in Week 15 for Houston and wasn't targeted on 13 offensive snaps. He could see some opportunities Sunday with Chris Conley (knee) questionable and Danny Amendola and Chris Moore both on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Demoted to practice squad

Veasy reverted to Houston's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Veasy logged 15 offensive snaps and 20 on special teams in his first action of the 2021 season. He's yet to record his first catch in the NFL.

Makes season debut

Veasy played 15 snaps and was not targeted in Sunday's 30-16 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Veasy was elevated from the practice squad but served as the fifth wideout. He's been with several organizations since signing as an undrafted free agent out of California in 2018 and this was his first time on the field in an NFL game.

Dec 20, 2021 4:02 AM EST

Joins Texans' active roster

Veasy has been elevated to the Texans' 53-man roster, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: Veasy will help provide depth at receiver and presumably help out on special teams for the Texans when they take the field against the Jaguars.

Dec 18, 2021 10:08 AM EST

Exits Houston

Veasy was waived by the Texans on Tuesday.

Analysis: Veasy was in a crowded competition to provide depth at wide receiver for the Texans and ends up being one of the odd men out. The 26-year-old pass catcher has yet to appear in an NFL game during his young-career.

Aug 31, 2021 5:20 PM EST

Catches TD

Veasy caught three of four targets for 21 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 23-16 loss to Tampa Bay in preseason Week 3.

Analysis: Veasy caught the second of Davis Mills' touchdown passes, making a back-shoulder catch on a well-thrown ball by the rookie. There's little chance Veasy makes the 53-man roster.

Aug 29, 2021 7:20 PM EST

Signs with Texans

Veasy signed a contract with the Texans on Thursday, Mark Lane of USA Today reports.

Analysis: Veasy hasn't yet appeared in an NFL game, but he'll join Houston for training camp following the recent departures of Randall Cobb and Donte Moncrief (undisclosed). The 26-year-old is a long shot to make the 53-man roster.

Aug 1, 2021 8:33 PM EST

Cut from IR

Washington waived Veasy (undisclosed) from injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: Veasy reached an injury settlement with the team and will become a free agent. Once he's healthy, the 25-year-old wideout will look for a new team, although a practice squad role is his most likely landing spot.

Oct 6, 2020 1:15 PM EST

Lands on IR

Washington placed Veasy (undisclosed) on injured reserve Saturday.

Analysis: Veasy hasn't played an NFL game since entering the league in 2018, and since he was placed on IR before the 53-man roster was set, he'll set his focus on getting healthy for the 2021 season.

Sep 5, 2020 5:20 PM EST

Inks futures contract

Veasy signed a futures contract with the Redskins on Monday, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan reports.

Analysis: Veasy joined Washington's practice squad in early December due to a slew of wideout injuries. He will have a chance to compete for a roster spot over the course of the coming offseason and training camp. Veasy has yet to appear in an NFL game through his first two seasons.

Dec 31, 2019 8:22 AM EST

Secures practice-squad role

Veasy signed with the Redskins' practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Veasy hasn't played an NFL snap since entering the league in 2018. The 24-year-old wideout was mildly productive for California in college, recording 38 receptions for 491 yards and six scores over 12 games during his senior year. Since Trey Quinn (head) and Paul Richardson (hamstring) are injured, Veasy could be elevated to the active roster if neither is ready for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Dec 4, 2019 10:23 AM EST

Let go from practice squad

The Bills released Veasy from the practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: Veasy was let go to make room for Ray-Ray McCloud on the practice squad. The 24-year-old will look for an opportunity elsewhere in the league.

Oct 17, 2019 9:06 AM EST

Parts ways with Bills

Veasy was released off the Bills' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: The 24-year-old joined the practice squad last week but was let go after a short stint in Buffalo. Veasy went undrafted out of Cal last year and has yet to see game action.

Oct 1, 2019 4:26 PM EST

Joins Buffalo's practice squad

Veasy signed with the Bills' practice squad on Wednesday.

Analysis: Veasy spent the preseason with the Colts before being let go at September's roster cutdowns. The 24-year-old went undrafted out of Cal in 2018 and has yet to make his NFL debut.

Sep 25, 2019 9:44 PM EST

Jettisoned by Colts

Veasy was released by the Colts on Friday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Analysis: Veasy went undrafted out of Cal in 2018 and spent time on Jacksonville's practice squad after initially signing with the Titans. He latched on in Indianapolis in January, but was unable to carve out a depth role in the team's receiving room.
