The Cowboys, Eagles, and Bengals also put in waiver claims on Redskins WR Dezmon Briscoe following his Thursday release from the Bucs.
It doesn't appear the league at large shares new Bucs coach Greg Schiano's opinion of the (soon to be) 23-year-old former sixth-round pick. It's also a sign Briscoe would latch on elsewhere if he can't crack the Redskins' crowded receiver corps. Jul 28 - 11:39 AM

Redskins claimed WR Dezmon Briscoe off waivers from the Buccaneers.

The Raheem Morris connection pays off for Briscoe. A talented but unfocused 22-year-old, Briscoe led the 2011 Buccaneers in touchdowns (6) and has some appeal as a red-zone threat. The new regime in Tampa Bay got rid of Briscoe because he skipped offseason workouts and failed his conditioning test to open training camp. Briscoe will battle for a roster spot in Washington.
Jul 27 - 5:08 PM

Dezmon Briscoe failed his conditioning test prior to being waived by the Bucs.

New coach Greg Schiano's conditioning test includes running 16 110-yard dashes in a predetermined amount of time. Briscoe didn't meet the standard for wide receivers, and also failed to show for voluntary offseason workouts this spring. He'll hit the open market with some baggage.
Jul 27 - 9:23 AM

Bucs waived WR Dezmon Briscoe.

The writing was on the wall when Briscoe failed to show for the start of OTAs in May after missing pre-draft workouts. Hard-line coach Greg Schiano is shipping all holdovers from the Raheem Morris regime if they come with commitment issues. With Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams, Preston Parker and Arrelious Benn in line for the top four spots, Briscoe was a roster longshot regardless.
Jul 26 - 4:53 PM

Bucs WR Dezmon Briscoe was a no-show again for the start of OTAs Tuesday.

The OTAs are voluntary, but Briscoe isn't assured of a roster spot in Tampa and can't endear himself to the new coaching staff when he's not there. Briscoe also missed pre-draft voluntary workouts due to a personal issue. It's fair to wonder if the third-year receiver's priorities are no longer on football.
May 15 - 12:37 PM

Dezmon Briscoe has been a no-show for the first two days of Buccaneers voluntary workouts.

We don't understand the details because we don't watch "Basketball Wives," but there is a story on the internet about Briscoe that can be easily accessed via a Google search. It appears he's having personal problems. Regardless, the absence and unnecessary notoriety is unlikely to go over well with the Buccaneers' new coaching staff. Briscoe is not a lock to make the Bucs' roster.
Apr 18 - 5:45 PM

Dezmon Briscoe caught eight passes for 53 yards with two touchdowns in the Week 17 loss to the Falcons.

Briscoe drew the start with Arrelious Benn sidelined. Although the majority of his stats came in garbage time, he continues to produce at a higher rate than Benn when given the opportunity. Briscoe's second season ends with 35 catches for 387 yards and six touchdowns. He'll head into the offseason penciled in as the primary backup to both Mike Williams and Benn.
Jan 1 - 8:24 PM

Dezmon Briscoe caught three passes for 37 yards and one touchdown in Week 15 against the Cowboys.

Briscoe made his first career start while filling in for the injured Arrelious Benn (concussion) and managed to score against Sean Lee in man coverage in the latter half of the third quarter. He was shown wide-open downfield on a play in the fourth quarter that was called back on a false start by Donald Penn, but was otherwise unproductive. Continue to leave him on the waiver wire for now.

With Arrelious Benn (concussion) out for Week 15, Dezmon Briscoe will be the Bucs' starting flanker Saturday night against the Cowboys.

Mike Williams is the split end and Preston Parker is the slot receiver. Rotating with Benn all year at flanker, Briscoe has caught 23 passes for 292 yards and three touchdowns. Briscoe has good size (6'2/210) for the red zone and will be an every-down player in a favorable matchup, but Tampa Bay's passing game as a whole has struggled mightily of late. He'd be a low-end WR3.

Dezmon Briscoe is the Bucs' flanker in three-wide sets.

Arrelious Benn explained that the injuries to the Bucs' backfield last week actually lessened his role in the offense. Benn is the flanker in the Bucs' base formations, but they were forced to go three-wide almost exclusively after Earnest Graham's injury. It's strange the Bucs didn't make an exception to get Benn on the field more, but the bottom line is that last week was a little fluky. Most weeks, Benn will get more snaps and targets than Briscoe.
Thu, Oct 27, 2011 10:14:00 AM

Dezmon Briscoe made six catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

Emphasized in favor of Arrelious Benn, Briscoe drew 10 looks on the afternoon, doubling his targets for the season. He appeared to have the full confidence of quarterback Josh Freeman, and made a number of difficult catches, exhibiting excellent body control. Considering he had just 10 catches for 123 yards on the year coming into this afternoon, he's not yet worth a flier, but is at least worth monitoring in deeper leagues if you're hurting at receiver.
Sun, Oct 23, 2011 05:42:00 PM

Bucs WR Dezmon Briscoe caught four passes for 42 yards in the team's Week 2 win over Minnesota.

The efficient, if rotational, receiver hauled in all four of his targets while outproducing both Arrelious Benn and Mike Williams in terms of catches and yards. Early in the season, at least, the Bucs have employed a timeshare with their top three outside wideouts. Williams plays the most. Briscoe has six catches for 56 yards through two games.
Sun, Sep 18, 2011 06:15:00 PM

Bucs WR Dezmon Briscoe has "taken control" of the starting job opposite Mike Williams, according to the St. Petersburg Times.

With Arrelious Benn still working his way back from ACL surgery, Briscoe is starring. He caught four passes for 60 yards in the preseason opener even though he played just one half. And in Week 17 of last season, Briscoe caught four passes for 65 yards with a touchdown. He's not a burner, but clearly has the attention of Josh Freeman. If Benn continues to be sidelined, Briscoe could emerge as a deep league flier.

Bucs WR Dezmon Briscoe caught four passes for 60 yards in the team's preseason opener against the Chiefs Friday night.

Arrelious Benn (knee) was held out as a precaution, so Briscoe drew the start as the Bucs' flanker receiver. The Kansas alum showed fearlessness over the middle and Josh Freeman was clearly comfortable throwing to him. Briscoe will be a backup once Benn returns healthy, but the Bucs need to find a way to keep him involved. Using Briscoe and Benn outside with Mike Williams in the slot for three-receiver sets wouldn't be a bad idea.
Fri, Aug 12, 2011 10:13:00 PM

Dezmon Briscoe has not been attending many of the Bucs' player-organized offseason workouts, according to his teammates.

Briscoe already has a reputation for being a bit of a slacker, so this is a concern. He's penciled in as the No. 3 receiver with a chance to start if Arrelious Benn (ACL surgery) isn't ready by Week 1. But entering camp in less than ideal physical condition would be a major setback.
