Ravens worked out free agent WR Dezmon Briscoe.
The 2010 sixth-rounder last appeared in a regular-season game in 2012. He was waived/injured by the Redskins last August. Briscoe would be little more than a camp body in Baltimore. He has no connection to new OC Gary Kubiak. Jun 17 - 6:33 PM

Redskins waived/injured WR Dezmon Briscoe.

Briscoe injured his shoulder in the final exhibition game. He caught four passes for 113 yards in mop-up duty this preseason.

Redskins WR Dezmon Briscoe is out 4-6 weeks with a shoulder injury.

Briscoe was tearing up Washington's preseason finale before going down. He'll likely be placed on injured reserve as part of Saturday's final cuts.

CSN Washington doesn't envision Redskins WR Dezmon Briscoe making the final 53-man roster.

Briscoe, a 2010 sixth-round pick of the Bengals, was claimed off waivers by the Redskins from the Bucs last July. He ended up making the team and appearing in seven games last season, but he caught just two passes for 22 yards. Briscoe is no higher than seventh on the depth chart, right now.

The Washington Times believes Dezmon Briscoe could be active over Leonard Hankerson in Week 1.

Beat writer Rich Campbell isn't going on anything said by coach Mike Shanahan, but points to Briscoe's stronger preseason (6/117/2 compared to Hank's 4/32/0) and greater experience. Most signs have pointed toward Hankerson being the fourth option in the Redskins' passing attack behind Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss and Fred Davis, but neither Hank nor Briscoe is on the redraft radar to begin the season.

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.

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.
Fri, Jul 27, 2012 05:08:00 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.

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.
Thu, Jul 26, 2012 04:53:00 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.
Tue, May 15, 2012 12:37:00 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.
Wed, Apr 18, 2012 05:45:00 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.
Sun, Jan 1, 2012 08:24:00 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.
Sun, Dec 18, 2011 12:57:00 AM

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.
Fri, Dec 16, 2011 05:39:00 PM

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.
