Cardinals waived RB Robert Hughes.

Hughes is an interesting cut by the Cardinals because he was constantly talked up as being "locked in" as the short-yardage back. Far from a special talent, Hughes averaged just 1.9 YPC on 13 totes this preseason after chugging along to 11 yards on seven carries last season. Andre Ellington, rookie David Johnson, and Chris Johnson will handle backfield duties for the Cardinals.

FOX Sports 910AM's Mike Jurecki said Robert Hughes is locked in as the Cardinals' short-yardage back.

Coach Bruce Arians said he wanted to see what the RB/FB tweener could do as an inside runner, and he has apparently been impressed. The issue for Hughes as a fantasy asset is the Cardinals only scored six rushing touchdowns as a team last season with last year's short-yardage back Stepfan Taylor only managing one. He is not worth a pick in standard leagues.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he wants to take a look at FB Robert Hughes as an inside runner.

Andre Ellington and rookie David Johnson both excel in space. Meanwhile, Hughes is short on talent but long on size and toughness at 5'11/235. He's hung around the fringe of NFL rosters for five years as a RB/FB tweener. Ultimately, we expect Johnson to get the first crack at goal-line work even if it doesn't fit his skill set.

Cardinals signed RB/FB Robert Hughes, C Philip Blake, WR Dan Buckner, LB Kenny Demens, C Tommie Draheim, TE Darren Fells, S Orhian Johnson, DT Anthony McCloud, and LB Kenny Rowe to reserve/future contracts.

All eight players finished 2013 on Arizona's practice squad. Hughes is a fullback/tailback tweener out of Notre Dame. Rowe was a productive pass rusher at Oregon and could be a serious contender for a 2014 roster spot.

Colts waived FB Robert Hughes.

It's an indication FB Stanley Havili (ankle) is ready to go for Week 6. Hughes spent one week on the active roster.

Colts signed FB Robert Hughes.

WR Griff Whalen was waived in a corresponding roster move. Hughes provides insurance for lead blocker Stanley Havili, who's dealing with an ankle injury.
Mon, Sep 30, 2013 04:06:00 PM

Colts waived RB Robert Hughes, RB Alvester Alexander and LB Shawn Loiseau.

An undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame in 2011, Hughes appeared in five games for the Colts last season, notching one carry. He'll try to latch on elsewhere as a camp body.

Bucs signed RB Robert Hughes and S Ron Girault.

Both players tried out for the team during voluntary workouts this week. Hughes may get a look in preseason action, but he's a long shot to make the final roster. Undrafted out of Greg Schiano's Rutgers program in 2008, Girault has spent time with the Chiefs and Jets.
Thu, Apr 19, 2012 05:22:00 PM

Bucs worked out free agents RB Robert Hughes, DT Landon Cohen, S Ron Girault, DT Ayanga Okpokowuruk, and FB/TE Richard Kay on Tuesday.

The five are street free agents, trying out alongside the Bucs players already on the roster. Undrafted out of Notre Dame, Hughes had 69 yards on 16 carries in the Bears' preseason finale last season.

Bears waived RB Robert Hughes.

Hughes rushed for 69 yards on 16 carries in the Bears' preseason finale, and may reportedly be signed to the practice squad. Only 22, he is an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame.
