Turner signed a deal with the Cowboys on Friday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Turner, who wasn't tendered as a restricted free agent, will return with the Cowboys for his second season. Through his six games of the 2020 season, the receiver played a mere two snaps on offense and 91 snaps on special teams. With the receiving corps crowded, the 25-year-old will likely play a similar depth role for the team once again.

Turner was claimed off waivers by the Cowboys on Sunday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Turner was a roster casualty by the Packers on Saturday, and he spent last season with the Seahawks, hauling in 15 catches for 245 yards and a touchdown. The Illinois product will likely assume a similar depth role that he had last year with plenty of proven options ahead of him.

Turner was waived by the Packers on Saturday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Analysis: The release of Jake Kumerow, Darrius Shepherd, Reggie Begelton and Malik Turner sure seems to signal something else might be on the horizon for the Packers in terms of its receiving corps as Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown are essentially the only form of depth at the position behind starters Davante Adams and Allen Lazard.

The Packers and Turner agreed to terms of a contract Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: After going undrafted in 2018, Turner joined forces with the Seahawks but spent most of his rookie season on the practice squad. Last year, he had a regular role in the team's wide receiver rotation, eventually posting a 15-245-1 line on 22 targets across 15 appearances. Notably, six of those catches went for more than 20 yards. With the Packers, expect Turner to compete for one of the final WR spots on the regular-season roster.

The Seahawks rescinded the exclusive rights tender from Turner on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Seattle has a clear-cut top WR duo of Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, and after adding Phillip Dorsett in free agency, the team has decided to move on from Turner, who put up a 15-245-1 line on 22 targets in 15 games last season. Turner will look to impress elsewhere in an offseason program, but it's unclear when he'll get another chance to do so on the field.
Apr 14, 2020 1:57 PM EST
The Seahawks tendered exclusive rights free agent Turner on Monday, Andy Patton of USA Today reports.
Analysis: In his first season as a regular in Seattle's offense, Turner managed a career-best three catches in Weeks 2 and 15, while six of his 15 grabs went for more than 20 yards. He'll continue to work for slotting at wide receiver behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, with David Moore and potentially a draft pick his primary competition in 2020.
Mar 17, 2020 11:05 AM EST
Turner, who didn't catch any of his three targets during Sunday's 28-23 divisional-round loss to the Packers, finished with 15 receptions for 245 yards and a touchdown over 15 regular-season games.
Analysis: Turner was the team's No. 3 wide receiver during this playoff loss, and he had a costly drop, which would've been a first down, on the team's final offensive drive. Overall this year, Turner rotated with David Moore and Jaron Brown as the team's No. 3 wideout behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. Turner will be an exclusive-rights free agent in March, and he stands a good chance to make the 53-man roster in 2020 due to his consistent usage on special teams.

Turner (concussion) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's divisional-round game at Green Bay, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Now that Turner got through the concussion protocol, he's set to serve as the Seahawks' No. 3 wide receiver behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. While his contributions were sporadic throughout the regular season, Turner averaged a whopping 11.1 YPT and 16.3 YPC on 22 targets scattered across 15 games.
Jan 10, 2020 1:54 PM EST
Turner (concussion) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: The Seahawks have yet to declare if Turner has completed his journey through the concussion protocol, but elevating from 'limited' activity Wednesday to uncapped one day later bodes well for the second-year wide receiver being cleared before Sunday's visit to Green Bay. Coach Pete Carroll is expected to speak to the media Friday, so Turner's fate could be revealed at that point.
Jan 9, 2020 4:46 PM EST
Turner (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll didn't provide much detail about Turner's progress, but he's on the right track by getting on the field for the first official practice of the week. The 23-year-old still needs to elevate to full participation and get cleared by an independent neurologist before he can play in Sunday's divisional-round matchup versus the Packers.
Jan 8, 2020 4:12 PM EST
Turner (concussion) will participate in Wednesday's practice, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll said Turner's status is "touch and go," so it'll likely take until Friday before we have an idea of his chances to play in Sunday's divisional-round matchup versus the Packers. The 23-year-old has missed the last two games. Turner figures to work as the Seahawks' third or fourth wide receiver if he can play.
Jan 8, 2020 1:42 PM EST
Turner (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's playoff matchup against the Eagles, Liz Matthews of USA Today reports.
Analysis: Turner will sit out Sunday's wild-card contest in Philadelphia while working his way through the league's five-step concussion protocol. As long as Turner remains sidelined, count on David Moore to serve as the No. 3 wide receiver for Seattle.
Jan 3, 2020 1:03 PM EST
Turner (concussion) was listed as a non-participant for Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Turner failed to suit up in Wednesday's practice and is in serious jeopardy of missing Sunday's wild-card game against Philadelphia. The fact that has still have to clear concussion protocol and likely log practice time Friday is a negative sign for his chances Sunday. If the 23-year-old were to miss the game, David Moore would likely work as the Seahawks' No. 3 wide receiver.
Jan 2, 2020 4:28 PM EST
Turner (concussion) didn't participate at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: The 23-year-old missed the regular-season finale due to the concussion and has yet to return since he apparently suffered the injury Week 16. Turner will need to fully clear the concussion protocol to have a chance of suiting up for the wild-card matchup. David Moore figures to work as the No. 3 wide receiver should Turner remain sidelined.
Jan 1, 2020 4:47 PM EST
Turner (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Turner entered the concussion protocol after playing a career-high 51 percent of snaps on offense in last week's 27-13 loss to the Cardinals. David Moore and Jaron Brown are the leading candidates to absorb the vacated snaps, but Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf and Jacob Hollister are far safer bets to draw targets.
Dec 27, 2019 1:36 PM EST
Turner was listed as a non-participant Wednesday on the Seahawks' estimated practice report with a concussion, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Analysis: Turner's inclusion on the Seahawks' first injury report of Week 17 was a surprise, given that no reports had surfaced coming out of Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Cardinals indicating that the second-year wideout had sustained an injury in the contest. The 23-year-old will now have two days' worth of practice to try and increase his activity and potentially gain clearance of the NFL's five-step concussion protocol ahead of this weekend's matchup with the 49ers.
Dec 25, 2019 2:11 PM EST
Turner caught one of three targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Cardinals.
Analysis: With Josh Gordon (suspension) out of the lineup, Turner stepped back into the No. 3 wideout role, logging 29 offensive snaps compared to David Moore's 10 and Jaron Brown's seven. Turner's far less talented than the likes of Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, so his upside is limited in a typically run-heavy scheme.
Dec 23, 2019 4:26 PM EST
Turner hauled in all three targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Turner played 20 of a possible 67 defensive snaps (30 percent), coming in No 4 among receivers and well ahead of Jaron Brown (11) and David Moore (10). While he's earned the trust of Russell Wilson in some key situations this season, Turner's fantasy upside is limited, surpassing 35 yards just once over 14 games.
Dec 16, 2019 8:18 AM EST
Turner caught one of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 28-12 loss to the Rams.
Analysis: Turner logged 15 offensive snaps while David Moore played 14, as Josh Gordon looks like he's pulled away with the No. 3 wideout job, recording 37 snaps. There will be limited fantasy upside for Turner as long as this rotation remains intact.
Dec 9, 2019 10:04 AM EST
Turner caught a 33-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Eagles.
Analysis: The Seahawks caught the Eagles off-guard in the first quarter with a flea flicker, and Russell Wilson found Turner in the end zone for his only passing touchdown of the afternoon. This was Turner's first touchdown of his career, and he now has 10 catches for 186 yards on 13 targets this year. His fantasy ceiling is still capped as a rotational option behind Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf and Josh Gordon.
