Bears released/waived FB Darrel Young, DL Keith Browner, WR Kieran Duncan, WR Derek Keaton, OL John Kling, RB Senorise Perry, WR Darrin Peterson, CB Joel Ross, TE Gannon Sinclair and OL Martin Wallace.
His tenure with Chicago lasted only a few weeks. If the Bears do end up keeping a fullback (they didn't last year), it will likely be Paul Lasike, who spent most of 2015 on the team's practice squad. The Bears need to cut five more players before Tuesday's 4 PM ET roster deadline. Aug 28 - 1:00 PM

Bears signed FB Darrel Young.

Young took part in the Bears' June minicamp on a tryout basis. Young was phased out of the Redskins' offense in 2015, but new Bears OC Dowell Loggains prefers a fullback to using three tight ends.
Aug 4 - 10:34 AM

Free agent FB Darrel Young will participate in Bears minicamp on a tryout basis.

The fullback is a dying breed in today's game, but the Bears are toying with the idea of using one this season under new OC Dowell Loggains after ex-OC Adam Gase preferred using three tight ends last season.
Jun 13 - 7:44 PM

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim reports the team has not opened negotiations with impending free agent FB Darrel Young.

Keim says "the sense" is Young will leave D.C. Young played just 107 snaps last season after playing nearly 200 the year before. Young brings value on special teams and will be cheap. He should find a new home in free agency.

Free agent FB Darrel Young wants to re-sign with Washington.

Young played only 121 snaps in Washington’s two tight end offense, but could be brought back for his special teams value. He wouldn’t require more than the veteran minimum.
Jan 22 - 5:40 PM

Darrel Young caught a nine-yard reception in Washington's Week 17 loss to the Cowboys.

An occasional vulture of a fullback, Young closes the book on 2014 having rushed nine times for 22 yards and three scores. Signed for $1.025 million next season, Young should be back to pave running lanes for Washington.

Redskins FB Darrel Young (hamstring) is questionable for Week 6 against Cardinals.

Young was a late addition to the injury report after practicing in full this week. It's a potential downgrade to Alfred Morris and Washington's run game. Young is currently PFF's No. 5 fullback.

A source tells CSN Washington that FB Darrel Young's job is safe.

Young's roster spot wasn't thought to be in danger because of talent -- he's among the league's top lead-blockers. It was a question mark because Jay Gruden rarely used a traditional fullback in Cincy, instead employing two-tight end sets in his pass-first scheme. Keeping Young is further evidence that the Redskins are going to at least attempt to stick with the Mike Shanahan scheme when they do run the ball.
Mon, Jul 21, 2014 10:53:00 AM

Redskins FB Darrel Young believes there will be a role for him in new coach Jay Gruden's offense.

Gruden’s Bengals offenses rarely featured a fullback, instead relying heavily on two tight-end sets. Young was one of the better lead blockers in the league in Mike Shanahan's zone scheme last season, but faces an uncertain future under Gruden. Young has two years remaining on his three-year, $3.97 million contract. The Redskins can save $693,229 in 2014 cap space by cutting him.
Sat, Jul 12, 2014 06:47:00 PM

Redskins FB Darrel Young (hamstring) is active for Sunday's Week 16 game against the Cowboys.

Young's presence is a little boost for Alfred Morris and the Redskins' running game. There are no surprises in their inactive list: QB Robert Griffin, S Baccari Rambo, DB Chase Minnifield, G Josh LeRibeus, LB Brandon Jenkins and C J.D. Walton.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 11:36:00 AM

Redskins FB Darrel Young (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Young practiced on a limited basis Friday, putting him on track to play against the Chiefs. His return would be an upgrade to Alfred Morris and Washington's running game. If Young is held out again this week, the Redskins would be forced to use Evan Royster as their starting fullback.
Fri, Dec 6, 2013 07:13:00 PM

Redskins FB Darrel Young (hamstring) is inactive for Week 13 against the Giants.

Young was limited in practice this week and listed as questionable on the injury report. Logan Paulsen will likely handle all lead blocking duties in his absence. The rest of the Redskins inactives are QB Rex Grossman, TE Jordan Reed, CB Chase Minnefield, TE Niles Paul, LB Brandon Jenkins, and OL Josh LeRibeus.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 07:09:00 PM

Redskins FB Darrel Young (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Young was limited in practice this week and is tentatively expected to play on Monday night against the 49ers. He's managed to score touchdowns in two of his last three games, but remains off the fantasy radar.
Sat, Nov 23, 2013 07:03:00 PM

Redskins FB Darrel Young rushed twice for six yards and caught one pass for a 62-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 11 loss at Philadelphia.

Just like when Young rushed for three touchdowns in Week 9, this touchdown catch can be written off as a fluke as well. It was a broken play in which the Eagles forgot about Young and he just rumbled to the house. The lead blocker shouldn't be owned in any format.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 05:55:00 PM

Darrel Young rushed once for no gain in Washington's Week 10 loss to the Vikings.

Young was held without a catch on one target in the passing game. His lone carry came on a 3rd-and-1 from the Redskins' 49-yard line with time running out in the fourth quarter. He couldn't convert, setting up a fourth down. As was suspected, Young's three-touchdown outburst against the Chargers was game-plan specific to Week 9. He remains well off the fantasy radar.
