Returns to Chargers' practice squad

The Chargers signed Doss to their practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Analysis: Doss was with the Giants during training camp this summer before being waived near the end of August. He joined the Chargers' practice squad in early October and was signed to the active roster before Week 9 due to injuries to both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams (ankle). Doss was waived this past Saturday with both Allen and Williams slated to return, but he is now back with the team's practice squad and could get an opportunity to be elevated since Williams aggravated his injury in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. However, Doss has yet to log an offensive snap this season, so he's unlikely to make much of an impact even if he does find his way back up to the active roster.

Let go by LA

Doss was waived by the Chargers on Saturday.

Analysis: Doss' stint on the active roster was short lived. With the imminent return of Mike Williams (knee) and Keenan Allen (hamstring), the Chargers opted to cut the long-time practice squad member. It wouldn't be surprising to see Doss return to the team's practice squad at some point this year.

Signed to active roster

The Chargers signed Doss to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Doss has been on the Chargers' practice squad since Oct. 5 but has yet to appear in a game this season. However, with both Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (knee) sidelined, Doss is in line to suit up in Week 9 against Atlanta. He's likely to still be a low priority in the offense, behind the likes of Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter (illness).

Finds new home

Doss signed with the Chargers' practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Doss spent training camp with the Giants, but he was unable to make the team. He'll now get an opportunity in LA, who still has Keenan Allen dealing with a hamstring injury, and also lost Jalen Guyton (knee) for the year in Week 3.

Waived by Big Blue

The Giants waived Doss on Monday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Doss played offensive 29 snaps during the team's preseason finale and caught his only target for nine yards. The undrafted wideout out of UC Davis hasn't appeared in an NFL regular season game since 2020 and hasn't caught a pass since 2019, when he reeled in 11 passes for 133 yards over eight games with the Raiders.

Sticking around for now

Doss has not been waived by the Giants, as New York rescinded the move and instead put fellow wide receiver Robert Foster (hamstring) on injured reserve, Art Stapleton of The Record Sports reports.

Analysis: The Giants were planning to waive Doss on Friday, but Foster got hurt in practice before the 4:00 p.m. EDT deadline to process the move, and Foster's placement on IR freed up a roster spot for New York to keep Doss. While his spot on the team is safe for now, Doss remains a likely candidate to be waived at some point before the start of the regular season.

Waived by Giants

Doss was waived by the Giants on Friday.

Analysis: After joining the team in early June, Doss failed to make a large enough impression at camp to make the Giants' roster ahead of the 2022 season. The wide receiver last appeared in an NFL game in 2020 and his last catch came in 2019 when he reeled in 11 passes for 133 yards over eight games with the Raiders.

Signs with Giants

Doss signed a contract with the Giants on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Doss participated in this week's training sessions with the Giants before ultimately getting signed Friday. He last played in the NFL in 2019, so he'll likely begin the season with the team's practice squad.

Signs contract with Giants

Doss signed a contract with the Giants and was active at the team's training session Tuesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Doss spent the 2021 on and off of multiple practice squads and he now joins the Giants ahead of their spring training late next month. The wide receiver last caught a pass in the NFL in 2019, turning 11 receptions into 133 yards in eight games with the Raiders.

Released from Jets' practice squad

Doss was released from the Jets' practice squad Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The 25-year-old landed with the team's practice squad Nov. 16, but he failed to crack the active roster at any point. Doss will now look for a new squad in need of depth at wide receiver.

Dec 7, 2021 2:26 PM EST

Lands with Jets' practice squad

Doss was signed to the Jets' practice squad Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Doss has spent time with both the Raiders and Falcons this season, though he has yet to appear in a game. He'll continue to serve as a depth role with the Jets and could be elevated to the active roster if any injuries occur among the team's receiving corps.

Nov 16, 2021 1:45 PM EST

Let go by Falcons

Doss was released by the Falcons on Tuesday.

Analysis: Doss had spent the previous two seasons with the Raiders, appearing in nine games and catching 11 of 14 targets for 133 yards. He was waived by the Raiders on Aug. 31 and signed with the Falcons practice squad on Sept. 3, but never appeared in a game. The 25 year-old UC Davis product will now look to catch on elsewhere. The Falcons signed Nick Thurman to their practice squad in a corresponding move.

Staying in Vegas

Doss signed a reserve/future contract with the Raiders on Tuesday.

Analysis: Doss spent the majority of the season on the Raiders' practice squad, but only was on the active roster for one contest -- playing three offensive snaps in the game.

Jan 26, 2021 8:04 PM EST

Reverts back to practice squad

Doss was reverted back to the Raiders' practice squad Monday, according to the NFL transaction page.

Analysis: Doss played on three offensive snaps as depth among the Raiders' receivers corps in Week 4 against Buffalo. He was promoted after the team was hit by a number of injuries to their pass-catchers, most notably Bryan Edwards (ankle) and Henry Ruggs (knee/hamstring).

Oct 5, 2020 6:34 PM EST

Moves up to active roster

Doss was activated from the practice squad to the 53-man roster Saturday, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Analysis: The Raiders have three WRs either out or listed as doubtful for Sunday so it makes sense to see Doss up on the active roster. He presumably would be fourth on the depth chart provided Henry Ruggs (knee/hamstring) is unable to play.

Oct 3, 2020 2:33 PM EST

Locks down practice squad spot

Doss signed with the Raiders' practice squad Sunday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Analysis: Doss played eight games with the Raiders last season and recorded 11 catches for 133 yards. The team brought in reinforcements at wide receiver this offseason, and Doss failed to beat out Rico Gafford for the No. 6 WR role in Las Vegas. Doss will continue to develop on the practice squad while waiting for a potential spot to open up on the active roster.

Sep 9, 2020 8:01 PM EST

Waived by Raiders

The Raiders waived Doss on Saturday

Analysis: Despite averaging 23.3 snaps per game over eight contests with the Raiders last year, Doss was cut by the team to start the 2020 season. Since he has experience with the Raiders, he could stick around as a practice-squad member.

Sep 5, 2020 8:27 PM EST

Inks ERFA tender

Doss officially signed his contract tender with the Raiders on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: The Raiders tendered the 24-year-old as an exclusive rights free agent in March, so it was only a matter of time before he put pen to paper. Doss appeared in eight games as an undrafted rookie and caught 11 of 14 targets for 133 yards.

May 6, 2020 3:07 PM EST

Remaining with Raiders

Doss was tendered a contract by the Raiders on Friday, Jerry McDonald of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Analysis: The 23-year-old caught 11 passes for 133 yards as an undrafted rookie in 2019, so it's not a major surprise to see the team tender him a contract as an exclusive rights free agent. Doss figures to be a practice-squad candidate while fighting for a roster spot in training camp.

Gathers 11 receptions as undrafted rookie

Doss, who was a healthy scratch for the Raiders' last two games, finishes the 2019 campaign with 11 receptions for 133 yards on 14 targets in eight contests.

Analysis: Doss caught a collective five passes for 54 yards while logging at least 28 offensive snaps in each game from Week 13 to Week 15, but he was somewhat surprisingly demoted to inactive status against the Chargers and Broncos to end the season on a sour note. The undrafted rookie could be a practice squad candidate in 2020, although Oakland still has question marks at receiver behind Tyrell Williams (foot) and Hunter Renfrow.
