Patriots Sign Terrell Jennings, Release Ke'Shawn Vaughn

The New England Patriots signed undrafted free-agent running back Terrell Jennings and released veteran ball carrier Ke'Shawn Vaughn on Monday, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. Jennings rushed 120 times for 674 yards and nine touchdowns and caught seven passes for 60 yards in his final season at Florida A&M last year. The 225-pounder isn't on the fantasy radar yet, but he will have a shot to compete for a roster spot this offseason. Vaughn, who was a popular fantasy football sleeper after being selected in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, has a bleak future outlook following his release. In 43 games with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 27-year-old rushed 103 times for 384 yards and two touchdowns. He's unlikely to become a fantasy-relevant back based on what he's produced so far, but he could stick around the NFL as a depth option for another organization.

Patriots Likely Adding Ke'Shawn Vaughn To Practice Squad

The New England Patriots are expected to sign free-agent running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn to their practice squad. With Rachaad White accumulating 108.1 scrimmage yards per game with seven total touchdowns since Week 7, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers waived the expendable Vaughn on Friday. The Bucs spent a third-round pick on Vaughn in the 2020 NFL Draft, and the tailback never quite made much noise during his Tampa Bay career. The 26-year-old rushed 103 times for 384 yards (3.7 yards per carry) with 14 receptions for 81 yards and three lifetime scores in 43 games. Vaughn is set to serve as backfield depth for the Pats, who let go of Ty Montgomery last week and are currently missing lead back Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) to an ankle sprain. Ezekiel Elliott would still handle an every-down role if Stevenson remains out on Christmas Eve against the Denver Broncos.

Ke'Shawn Vaughn Waived By Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers waived running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn on Friday. The 26-year-old had appeared in just six games this season, never registering more than 30 percent of offensive snaps in a single contest. His 2023 campaign as a Buccaneer ends with just 42 rushing yards and two receiving yards. Even if he latches on with another team, the Vanderbilt product isn't a reliable fantasy option.

Ke'Shawn Vaughn Out For Personal Reasons

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn is not at practice on Wednesday due to personal reasons, according to head coach Todd Bowles. It's unclear if he'll return on Thursday as the team prepares for their season opener in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday. As of right now, Vaughn is well off the fantasy radar entering the 2023 regular season, as he's currently listed as fourth on the running back depth chart behind starter Rachaad White, rookie Sean Tucker and Chase Edmonds. The 26-year-old former third-rounder has just 79 rushing attempts and 12 catches in his three years with Tampa. There's a pretty good chance Vaughn will be a healthy scratch to kick off the year.
