DeWayne McBride Released By Vikings

Tuesday, August 29, 2:32 PM

The Minnesota Vikings are releasing running back DeWayne McBride as Tuesday's roster cutdown deadline approaches. McBride was selected by the Vikings in the seventh round in the 2023 NFL Draft after a stellar final season at UAB. McBride rushed 233 times for 1,713 yards and 19 touchdowns in 2022. Given his college production, there might be other teams interested in picking him up. There's also a chance he ends up back with the Vikings on the practice squad. For now, it looks like second-year running back Ty Chandler is the direct backup to Alexander Mattison in 2023.

Eric Gray Sees Plenty Of Run With First-Team Offense

Thursday, May 30, 3:41 PM

New York Giants running back Eric Gray saw a lot of run with the first-team offense during organized team activities on Thursday, leading the New York Daily News' Pat Leonard to put Gray as the team's RB2 behind starter Devin Singletary. In addition, the Giants waived/injured Gary Brightwell, a sixth-round pick in 2021 by the previous regime, on Thursday. The G-Men are facing life without Saquon Barkley in 2024. Singletary is likely to lead this backfield, but he's never been a workhorse back in the NFL and will certainly cede backfield touches in his first year in the Big Apple. Gray was a fifth-rounder in 2023 and had only 23 touches for 70 yards on 65 offensive snaps a year ago. Given the lack of competition behind Gray, he's a good bet to see a significant boost in touches in Year 2. He'll be a handcuff option for Singletary owners in deeper fantasy leagues.
