Steven Montez: Doesn't play as rookie

Montez finished his rookie season without appearing in a game.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie out of Colorado spent most of the year on Washington's practice squad, eventually bumping up to the active roster for Weeks 15-17 and the wild-card round of the playoffs. Montez never actually took a snap, and he'll likely need to compete for a reserve QB role in the offseason.

Steven Montez: Promoted to active roster

Montez was promoted to Washington's active roster Friday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Montez's promotion to the active roster comes on the heels of Dwayne Haskins' release, as starter Alex Smith (calf) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Steven Montez: Relegated to practice squad

Montez reverted to Washington's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Montez was active for Washington's Week 16 loss to the Panthers, but he never reached the field. With Dwayne Haskins having been waived by the team on Monday following a three-turnover outing against Carolina, Montez may very well receive another call-up for Washington's Week 17 road trip to Philadelphia.

Steven Montez: Bumps to active roster

Washington elevated Montez to the active roster Saturday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Alex Smith (calf) is expected to start if he's healthy, but he's still considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Dwayne Haskins is slated to start if Smith can't go. Montez and Taylor Heinicke will work as backups Sunday.

Steven Montez: Demoted to practice squad

Montez reverted to Washington's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: The Colorado product was active for a Week 15 tilt against the Seahawks, but he ultimately didn't get an opportunity under center. Dwayne Haskins remained the quarterback throughout, barring Montez from a potential NFL debut during a 20-15 defeat.

Steven Montez: Promoted to active roster

Washington promoted Montez from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Montez joined Washington back in April and has spent the entire regular season on the team's practice squad. Taylor Heinicke also bumped from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, so both he and Montez will be available as reserve options behind Dwayne Haskins during Sunday's game against Seattle.

Steven Montez: Joins Washington's practice squad

Washington signed Montez to the practice squad Sunday, Kyle Stackpole of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Montez was let go as a product of final roster cuts Saturday, but the undrafted rookie will get a chance to continue his development with Washington. He's an unlikely candidate to see any action this season, however, with all of Dwayne Haskins, Kyle Allen and Alex Smith (leg) on the active roster.

Steven Montez: Let go by Washington

Washington waived Montez on Saturday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie out of Colorado never had a real shot at making the team, with Dwayne Haskins, Kyle Allen and Alex Smith (leg) all expected to secure spots on the active roster. If he goes unclaimed on waivers, Montez could be a candidate to resurface on Washington's practice squad.
