Free agent CB Chris Owens visited the Steelers.

With all the top corners off the market, Owens is making the rounds as an experienced backup. He visited Tampa earlier this week.
Mar 20 - 2:10 PM

Free agent CB Chris Owens will visit the Bucs.

The Falcons' former slot corner was released mid-season by the Browns, finishing out the year with the Dolphins. He'd be a depth signing for a Bucs team loading up on veterans.
Mar 18 - 9:11 PM

Dolphins claimed CB Chris Owens off waivers from the Browns.

The Browns cut Owens from injured reserve after he recovered from an in-season knee injury. He's best suited to man the slot but will purely be depth for the Dolphins. CB Justin Rogers was waived to make room for Owens in Miami.

Browns released CB Chris Owens and WR Armanti Edwards from injured reserve.

A knee injury ended Owens' season earlier this month. The Falcons' former slot corner, Owens appeared in 12 games with Cleveland, making two starts. A colossal bust as a return man, Edwards is likely near the end of his NFL career.

Browns placed CB Chris Owens on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

CB Julian Posey has been promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. A reserve cornerback, Owens ends 2013 with 545 defensive snaps and 40 tackles to his name. The Falcons' former (ineffective) nickel back, Owens was playing on a one-year deal. Owens is still only 27, but is going to have trouble finding a new home next season, particularly if his injury is serious.

The Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports Chris Owens has the "early edge" on Buster Skrine for the Browns' right cornerback job.

Owens has received the most first-team reps opposite LCB Joe Haden since spring practices, but he's predominantly been a nickel corner since entering the league. Rookie Leon McFadden is no longer considered a candidate to start due to multiple missed practices with a groin pull. The true competition begins tonight when the Browns host the Rams in their preseason opener.

The Akron Beacon-Journal reports that CB Chris Owens is a candidate for the starting job opposite Joe Haden.

Owens has been playing with the first-team defense over the last three weeks and is "practicing like a man determined to take the next step in his career." A nickel corner with the Falcons last year, Owens could be asked to start on the outside if Leon McFadden struggles in training camp.

Browns signed CB Chris Owens, formerly of the Falcons.

New Cleveland coach Rob Chudzinski knows Owens from the NFC South, but we're skeptical the 26-year-old will help the Browns. An oft-abused (and benched) slot corner in Atlanta, Owens lost his nickel back job to Robert McClain last year. Mostly a dime back, Owens managed 22 tackles and a forced fumble.

Falcons CB Chris Owens was removed from Saturday's game with a hamstring injury and is questionable to return.

The severity of the injury isn't yet known, but it's probably safe to rule him out for the rest of the game. Owens will be replaced by a combination of Robert McClain and Dominique Franks.

Falcons CB Chris Owens (concussion) has been medically cleared.

Owens sustained a concussion during Week 2. His nickelback spot was filled by both Dominique Franks and Robert McClain.
Tue, Oct 2, 2012 09:28:00 AM

Coach Mike Smith confirmed CB Chris Owens is "in the concussion protocol" this week.

Atlanta's nickel back will have to pass a battery of tests to play this week. Smith suggested that "feisty" CB Robert McClain may have earned a bigger role regardless of Owens' status. "Every time he goes on the field, he makes something happen," said Smith.

Falcons nickel CB Christopher Owens left Monday night's game against the Broncos with a head injury.

Owens, who is playing because Brent Grimes is on injured reserve, was replaced by Dominique Franks in the lineup. Owens' return is questionable.
Mon, Sep 17, 2012 09:37:00 PM

Chris Owens is expected to step in as the Falcons' nickel corner.

Brent Grimes' season-ending injury will move Dunta Robinson out to right corner, opposite Asante Samuel. Owens, a fringe player and special teamer during his three-plus years in Atlanta, is going to get attacked in three-wide sets. His first test comes against Peyton Manning and the Broncos this week.
Wed, Sep 12, 2012 10:44:00 AM

Falcons CB Chris Owens was forced from Sunday night's game against the Packers with a concussion.

The Falcons' nickel back concussed himself on a crushing special teams hit. He's been replaced by Kelvin Hayden. RG Garrett Reynolds is also out of the game with an ankle injury. His return is officially questionable. If his night is through, it would be bad news for a Falcons team already missing C Todd McClure. Brett Romberg is currently in at right guard.
