Remains with Buffalo

Gentry signed a reserve/future contract with the Bills on Monday.

Analysis: Gentry spent the 2021 campaign on the practice squad after failing to make Buffalo's season-opening roster, and he'll stick around the organization for now. He hasn't seen game action since 2017 when he appeared in four games with the Bears during his rookie campaign.

Analysis: Gentry has been cleared to resume practicing after a stint on the COVID-19 list. He will now rejoin the Bills' practice squad and await an opportunity to see game action.

Time up with Bills

Buffalo cut Gentry on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Gentry linked with Buffalo's practice squad during the playoffs last season, and he managed to stick with the team via a reserve/future contract, but he couldn't secure a regular-season roster spot for 2021. However, he will be a candidate to sign with the practice squad again as long as he clears waivers.

Signs reserve/future contract

Gentry signed a reserve/future contract with the Bills on Tuesday.

Analysis: Gentry, a teammate of Josh Allen at Wyoming, was brought into Buffalo ahead of their Wild Card matchup as they were dealing with several injuries on the wide receiver front. Gentry will now get the opportunity to stick with the team through offseason activities in hopes of landing a roster spot in 2021.

Joins up with playoff contender

Gentry was signed to Buffalo's practice squad Monday, Dante Lustig of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: The high-flying Bills rely heavily on numerous wide receivers, so they are loading up on reserves heading into the playoffs. However, the Bills also signed Kenny Stills to the practice squad as well, and it would seem far more likely Stills would get the call if the team needs more help in the playoffs.

Catches three passes

Gentry caught three passes for 31 yards in the Bears' loss to the Giants.

Analysis: After shining in the 2018 preseason, Gentry followed up his zero-catch performance of last week with an efficient, but unspectacular follow up. He's currently buried on the depth chart, and it appears that he faces long odds of cracking the 53-man roster.

Posts no stats in preseason opener

Gentry failed to catch either of his two targets in Chicago's 23-13 loss to Carolina.

Analysis: Although he's shined at times over the previous two preseasons, Gentry is buried on a depth chart that goes 10 deep at wide receiver. Unless he can put together an amazing preseason, he may be fighting an uphill battle to secure a roster spot for the regular season.

Signs with Bears

The Bears signed Gentry to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.

Analysis: Gentry appeared in four games with the Bears in 2017, hauling in three of six targets for 35 yards. However, despite leading the team in receptions during the 2018 preseason, he failed to make the 53-man roster. He'll have another opportunity to do so after signing a reserve/future contract.

Released by Chicago

Gentry was released by the Bears on Saturday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Analysis: Gentry led the Bears in receptions throughout the preseason, but still wasn't able to secure a spot on the team's 53-man roster. He'll be placed on waivers before potentially returning as a practice squad candidate.

Posts 54 yards

Gentry caught six passes for 54 yards Thursday against the Bengals.

Analysis: Gentry led the Bears with 11 targets, but he primarily played with the third-string offense in the second half. Although he's been solid in camp for the second-consecutive year, he's battling for a roster spot, and there's a strong possibility he finds his way on the practice squad as he did for most of the 2017 season.
