Stallworth has fallen behind some due to a hamstring injury suffered Friday, July 26. WRs Devery Henderson and Dezmon Briscoe are also in the mix for jobs.

  Redskins | Could look to take WR in draft    Fri Apr 5, 06:24 PM

The Washington Redskins could consider taking a wide receiver as early as the third round in the 2013 NFL Draft. The team could also take a wide receiver in the later rounds of the draft and let the player compete with WR Dezmon Briscoe for a roster spot.

Footballguys view: If you're going to take a WR this is the year to do it. The 2013 NFL Draft is full of extremely talented wideouts.

  Buccaneers | Dezmon Briscoe signs    Thu Jul 26, 04:59 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released WR Dezmon Briscoe Thursday, July 26, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Briscoe was stolen from the Bengals practice squad and showed promise at times, but has clearly stalled out in his development. He should at least get a tryout somewhere else.

  Buccaneers | Dezmon Briscoe likely to start in Week 15    Fri Dec 16, 10:48 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Dezmon Briscoe is likely to serve as the starting flanker in the Week 15 game against the Dallas Cowboys Saturday, Dec. 17, with WR Arrelious Benn (concussion) sidelined.

Footballguys view: Briscoe has caught Josh Freeman's eye in the red zone and during second half comeback bids earlier this year, so he could shine with Benn out.

  Buccaneers | Arrelious Benn sees limited use    Thu Oct 27, 12:13 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Arrelious Benn wasn't on the field much during the team's Week 7 loss to the Chicago Bears in London. Benn had just one catch and was targeted just once. WR Dezmon Briscoe took the majority of repetitions at the flanker position instead of Benn. 'When Earnest (Graham) went down, we only had one back,' Benn said. 'Then (fullback Erik) Lorig got hurt. So, then our base personnel was kind of out of the question. We had to go with our three-wide receiver set. Briscoe is the starting Z (that's the flanker) in that (lineup).' Benn is the team's biggest threat for big-plays, and the team may decide to use him more coming out of their bye week.

Footballguys view: Benn's production has been up and down this year just like the Bucs offense as a whole. We could see him worked into the gameplan more as the year goes on, but he makes for an unpredictable flex play until we see more consistency.

  Buccaneers | Dezmon Briscoe gets into end zone    Sun Oct 23, 06:37 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Dezmon Briscoe caught six passes for 73 yards and one touchdown in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: Briscoe got a lot of snaps and targets as the Bucs were catch-up mode with no running game to speak of. He is worth a pickup in deep leagues to see what happens coming out of the Bucs bye, but we're not sure that he's going to be starting any time soon.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Arrelious Benn got the start in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he finished with three grabs and 46 yards. WR Dezmon Briscoe ended up with two catches for 18 yards, while WR Preston Parker disappointed with just one catch for 13 yards.

  Buccaneers | Dezmon Briscoe working with starters    Thu Aug 18, 03:00 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Dezmon Briscoe has been working with the starters during practice and preseason while WR Arrelious Benn (knee) has been trying to recover from a knee injury he suffered last season. Wide receivers coach Eric Yarber said Briscoe has good speed, body control and the ability to run great routes.

Footballguys view: Briscoe has a tremendous size/speed combination and could be more productive than some think. Benn is more talented but continues to be sidelined by a knee injury that he suffered late last year.

  Buccaneers | WR Briscoe not at players only workouts much    Mon Jun 27, 01:53 PM

Scott Reynolds, from PewterReport.com, reports Buccaneers second-year WR Dezmon Briscoe has not been a frequent participant in players only workouts this offseason. Briscoe is penciled in as the team's number three WR and could wind up in the starting lineup if Arrelious Benn isn't fully recovered from ACL surgery to begin the season.

Footballguys view: Briscoe had questionable work ethic before the draft and it caused his draft stock to plummet. He's got decent upside, but may never play up to his potential if he doesn't get motivated and start focusing on football.

  Buccaneers | WR Briscoe most hurt by lockout    Thu May 12, 03:24 PM

Charlie Campbell, from PewterReport.com, reports veteran WR Dezmon Briscoe could be the player most hurt by the lockout on the Buccaneers roster. With starting Z (flanker) wide receiver Arrelious Benn rehabbing an injured knee, Briscoe could have used the OTAs to thrust himself into contention to be a starter in 2011.

Footballguys view: Briscoe is a raw prospect with good physical ability and high upside. He has a good size/speed combination, leaping ability, and 'my ball' mentality. Briscoe is not a household name, but savvy fantasy owners should remember his name in case he gets an opportunity to showcase his skills in 2011.

  Buccaneers | Will sign Dezmon Briscoe to practice squad    Sun Sep 5, 09:54 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will sign unrestricted free-agent WR Dezmon Briscoe (Bengals) to their practice squad, reports Stephen Holder, of the St. Petersburg Times. Briscoe will make around the rookie minimum salary while on the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Briscoe has a good size/speed combination but needs to improve his concentration when running routes over the middle.

  Bengals | Four players released    Sat Sep 4, 01:24 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals have released WR Dezmon Briscoe, WR Matt Jones, PK Dave Rayner and SS Kyries Hebert, reports Joe Reedy, of The Cincinnati Enquirer.

Footballguys view: We're sad to see 'Dr. Rockzo' aka Matt Jones let go, but he simply didn't perform well enough after being out of football for the entire 2009 season. Dezmon Briscoe could be kept on the practice squad, but he needs to show a more fearless nature when running routes over the middle.

  Bengals | Four to compete for final two WR spots    Mon Jul 19, 05:48 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WRs Jerome Simpson, Matt Jones, Dezmon Briscoe and Quan Cosby will compete for the final two wide receiver spots on the roster during training camp, reports Joe Reedy, of The Cincinnati Enquirer.

Footballguys view: Simpson has been a disappointment ever since he was a second-round draft pick in 2008 out of Coastal Carolina. Matt Jones is trying to make a comeback after spending last season out of the league. Briscoe is an athletic rookie, but is merely a deep threat as he's afraid to run routes over the middle. Cosby is the least athletically gifted out of this group, but gets by on his moxie, work ethic, and special teams ability.

  Bengals | Dezmon Briscoe agrees to terms    Fri Jun 25, 12:15 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to terms with sixth-round draft choice WR Dezmon Briscoe, reports Joe Reedy, of The Cincinnati Enquirer. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Briscoe is a big receiver who has a knack for making big plays. He was extremely productive at Kansas catching passes from Todd Reesing, and now will try to impress at the next level. He does suffer from a lack of concentration, dropping too many easy passes, and does not like to get hit - so he won't be catching any passes over the middle. The Bengals WR corps is jam packed with talent, but Briscoe could stick around on the practice squad to develop.
