Buccaneers waived/injured WR David Gettis.
Gettis came out of Baylor in 2010 as a big-time athlete with size and played well as a rookie, drawing comparisons to Marques Colston. His career has gone down the tubes due to injuries. We doubt Gettis gets claimed on waivers. Mon, Aug 4, 2014 04:41:00 PM

Bucs signed WR David Gettis.

Gettis reportedly "turned heads" in Bucs minicamp, but hasn't caught a regular-season pass since 2010 due in large part to injury. There's no guarantee he even makes it to final cuts in Tampa.

Free agent WR David Gettis is participating in this week's Bucs minicamp on a tryout basis.

Gettis is also joined by free agents DL Ronald Talley and S Tony Dye. Gettis was cut by the Redskins last month. He's always had an intriguing blend of size and speed at 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds with 4.4 jets. Gettis can't stay healthy.

Redskins waived/released WR David Gettis and K Jake Rogers.

Gettis, a size-speed freak coming out of Baylor in 2010, hasn't caught a regular-season pass since his rookie year. He's been bitten by the injury bug far too often in recent years. Gettis' career may be nearing the end of the line.

Redskins signed WR David Gettis to a reserve/future contract.

Gettis was waived/injured by the Panthers at final cuts before the season with a hamstring injury and was released with an injury settlement one week later. The former sixth-round pick out of Baylor flashed a bit in the preseason, reeling in 11 passes for 164 yards but hasn't caught a regular-season pass since 2010. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound 26-year-old can't stay healthy.

Panthers released WR David Gettis with an injury settlement.

He's now a free agent. Gettis was having a big preseason before suffering a hamstring injury in warmups ahead of the exhibition finale. Though blessed with ideal size and long speed, Gettis has been incredibly injury prone in the NFL.

Panthers waived/injured WR David Gettis (hamstring).

Gettis pulled up lame in pre-game warmups for Thursday's preseason finale. He'll revert to I.R. if (when) he goes unclaimed on waivers. One of former GM Marty Hurney's many failed draft picks, Gettis has just 13 career receptions, zero of which have come since 2010.

David Gettis caught three passes for 26 yards in Carolina's third preseason game against the Ravens on Thursday night.

Gettis saw minimal -- if any -- reps with the first-team offense as he played mainly with Jimmy Clausen and the second- and third-stringers. Ted Ginn was the No. 3 receiver in three-wide sets. Gettis has had a solid August with 11 catches for 164 yards after three preseason games. He'll see plenty of work next week, and should lock up a roster spot with a decent showing.

The Charlotte Observer believes David Gettis has entered the competition to be the Panthers' No. 3 receiver.

Two days ago, the Observer had Gettis simply competing for a roster spot. After two big preseason games, he appears to be finally recovered from his 2011 torn ACL and 2012 hamstring woes. Gettis is competing with Armanti Edwards, Ted Ginn, and Domenik Hixon for the No. 3 job, but whoever wins will be no higher than the fourth option in the passing game.

Panthers WR David Gettis has eight catches for 138 yards through two preseason games.

Reports on Gettis' training camp have been mixed at best, but he's shown big-play ability in game settings. As of Friday afternoon, Gettis leads the NFL in preseason receiving yards and is averaging 17.3 yards per catch. He's got two receptions of 20-plus yards. Gettis is worth monitoring in Dynasty leagues.

The Charlotte Observer believes David Gettis is competing with Kealoha Pilares and Joe Adams for the Panthers' final receiver spot.

Gettis has a big opportunity Thursday night against the Eagles; he's going to see plenty of snaps with receivers Adams, Domenik Hixon, and Armanti Edwards not expected to suit up. The fourth-year receiver caught three passes for 56 yards in the preseason opener, and will look to build on it. Gettis has one year left on his rookie contract, but hasn't been the same player since 2010.
Thu, Aug 15, 2013 05:39:00 PM

After attending Panthers camp, ESPN's Pat Yasinskas observed that fourth-year WR David Gettis isn't the same player he once was.

Gettis flashed with a 37/508/13.7/3 stat line as a sixth-round rookie in 2010, but tore his ACL the following year and has appeared in just two games since. The knee reconstruction may have cost him his deep speed, which was Gettis' calling card. He currently appears unlikely to last beyond final cuts.

The Panthers' coaching staff "doesn't have high expectations" for fourth-year WR David Gettis.

Gettis flashed vertical tools as a rookie in 2010, but tore his ACL in 2011 and was a non-factor throughout 2012, often sitting on the Panthers' weekly inactives list. Gettis will enter training camp squarely on the roster bubble.

Panthers declared WR David Gettis, S D.J. Campbell, CB James Dockery, LB Jason Williams, OT Bruce Campbell, DE Antwan Applewhite, and QB Jimmy Clausen inactive for Monday night's game against the Eagles.

Gettis is a healthy scratch for the second consecutive week and has fallen behind Armanti Edwards on the depth chart. Applewhite (hamstring) is the only player among the group that has an injury.

Panthers WR David Gettis was a healthy scratch in Week 11, losing his spot to kick returner Armanti Edwards.

"David is still getting his feet back under him," Rivera said. "We had him up before because Brandon LaFell wasn't playing and I wasn't convinced that Joe (Adams) was ready. I may have put him out there a little too soon." Gettis appears unlikely to make an impact in 2012.
