  Ravens | Make practice squad moves    Thu Dec 18, 11:42 AM

The Baltimore Ravens signed free-agent RB Tauren Poole (Panthers) to their practice squad Thursday, Dec. 18. The team also released TE Emmanuel Ogbuehi from their practice squad.

Footballguys view: We're still watching Poole in super super deep dynasty leagues. He's a good all-purpose back, plus we have a soft spot for Volunteeers running backs.

The Carolina Panthers re-signed RB Tauren Poole to their practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 30.

Footballguys view: Poole is a natural runner with good balance and vision. He's bounced on and off the Panthers roster during his pro career. Poole is only worth monitoring in super super deep dynasty leagues.

  Panthers | Make two roster moves    Sat Sep 27, 01:38 PM

The Carolina Panthers have signed RB Tauren Poole to the active roster from their practice squad and placed OT Garry Williams (back) on Reserve/Injured Saturday, Sept. 27.

Footballguys view: The Panthers had to do something at running back. Both Mike Tolbert and Jonathan Stewart are out for the foreseeable future (Tolbert on IR/Designated to Return). That leaves banged up DeAngelo Williams as the starter, but there's little depth behind him. Poole is an instinctive runner who can make his living between the tackles, but he's best used in space. He'll compete with Darrin Reaves for touches/time as a backup runner.

The Carolina Panthers signed free-agent RB Tauren Poole (Steelers) to the practice squad Thursday, Sept. 25. RB Lache Seastrunk was released.

Footballguys view: We've always liked Poole in super super deep dynasty leagues. He's never gotten a real shot to prove himself, but he's a natural runner with the willingness to run inside.

  Steelers | Tauren Poole has chance to make roster    Sat Aug 16, 11:56 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Tauren Poole appears to be the leading candidate for the No. 4 running back job if the team decides to keep four running backs on their final roster. Poole will have to show he can contribute on special teams if he wants to make the roster.

Footballguys view: We like Poole in super deep dynasty leagues. He's a good all-purpose runner with good instincts for running the football. Poole is not the biggest back, but he is determined between the tackles. He's not the fastest back either, but he wastes little motion and has enough speed to get to the edge at the pro level.

  Steelers | Looking at RB help    Mon Aug 4, 02:23 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is paying extra attention to some running backs on the roster like RBs Tauren Poole, Miguel Maysonet, and Josh D. Harris. Those three are thought to be on the 53-man roster bubble.

Footballguys view: We like Poole the most here, but he's a longshot to ever make much of an impact as a pro. Poole is not the biggest back, but he's disciplined and can effectively run between the tackles. Maysonet is built low to the ground, and he looks like a poor man's version of Maurice Jones-Drew on the field.

  Steelers | Two signed    Mon Jan 27, 04:23 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed free-agent LB Vic So'oto (Cardinals) and RB Tauren Poole (Colts) to reserve/futures contracts Monday, Jan. 27.

Footballguys view: Poole is the player to watch in super deep dynasty leagues here. He's a good inside runner who plays bigger than his size. Poole can also be used effectively as a receiver out of the backfield.

  Panthers | Seven re-signed to practice squad    Sun Sep 1, 04:01 PM

The Carolina Panthers re-signed WR Brenton Bersin, LB Ben Jacobs, S Robert Lester, RB Tauren Poole, DE Craig Roh, WR James Shaw and DT Casey Walker to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Poole was beaten out by sixth-round pick Kenjon Barner. He could get a call-up if injuries strike the Panthers backfield.

  Panthers | Five cut    Sat Aug 31, 03:35 PM

The Carolina Panthers waived OT Patrick Brown, S D.J. Campbell, FS Robert Lester, RB Tauren Poole and LB Ben Jacobs.

Footballguys view: Poole misses out on a roster spot because he was outplayed by Armond Smith in the preseason. We'll see Smith as the RB3 behind DeAngelo Williams and rookie Kenjon Barner. Fullback Mike Tolbert will see touches before Smith as well.
