Free agent WRs Chris Givens and Griff Whalen worked out for the Chargers.
The Chargers need to add a veteran with Keenan Allen lost for the season. The Bolts' receiver depth chart is extremely low on proven talent behind Travis Benjamin. Givens is a vertical threat with Whalen a slot man. Tue, Sep 13, 2016 05:37:00 PM

Eagles released WR Chris Givens.

The Philadelphia Inquirer predicted this was coming last week. A 2012 fourth-round pick, Givens turned in a promising rookie campaign with the Rams (42-698-3), but his career has been in a tailspin ever since. It's an especially ominous sign for Givens that he couldn't crack one of the NFL's worst receiver corps.

Chris Givens secured his lone target for 19 yards in the Eagles' third preseason game.

Givens made his reception playing early with the first-team offense, then wasn't heard from again. With Jordan Matthews (knee) on the shelf, the Eagles rotated Josh Huff, Dorial Green-Beckham, Givens, and still-struggling Nelson Agholor with the first-team offense. Givens is on the roster bubble.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman doesn't expect Chris Givens to make the Eagles' 53-man roster.

The acquisition of Dorial Green-Beckham last week squeezes someone off the roster, and Givens appears to be that guy as of this moment. None of the Eagles' receivers have shown much this summer, but Givens has apparently been the worst of the bunch. He simply doesn't have many tools in his bag aside from deep speed. Berman has Rueben Randle and Josh Huff making the team.

Per the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane, Chris Givens hasn't impressed at Eagles camp.

Predictably. Givens is a one-trick pony deep threat who hasn't done a darn thing since his 2012 rookie season. Even in one of the league's thinnest receiving corps in Philadelphia, Givens is on the roster bubble.

NJ.com believes Chris Givens is establishing himself ahead of Rueben Randle in three-receiver sets.

This says much more about Randle than Givens. Givens is a deep threat journeyman who has 31 total catches over the past two seasons. He's only 26, but has been on a steady downward trajectory since a solid rookie year. Poor quarterback play hasn't helped, but it's not going to be any better in 2016. Randle needs to dig down deep for something he's yet to display in his frustrating career.

Chris Givens said he signed with the Eagles in part because he wanted to reunite with Sam Bradford.

Givens had the best season of his career as a rookie with Bradford, catching 42 passes for 698 yards and three scores in 2012. Givens was never able to regain his form after injuries ended Bradford's time with the Rams, and he was terribly inefficient (36 percent catch rate) in 12 games with the Ravens last year. On the bright side, Givens reportedly showed well both underneath and as a deep threat during the offseason program. With just Josh Huff and Rueben Randle to beat for the No. 3 job, Givens could find himself in a regular role this season.

CSN Philly's Dave Zangaro says WR Chris Givens has "really shown something" at Eagles' OTAs.

Givens seemed like an afterthought when the Eagles signed him in March for only $100,000 guaranteed. He's been a bright spot at OTAs, impressing as a deep threat while also showing surprising polish underneath. Givens has seen plenty of first-team reps and could challenge Josh Huff, Nelson Agholor and Rueben Randle for snaps this year. The 26-year-old tallied 20 catches for 353 yards and one touchdown with Baltimore and St. Louis in 2015.

Eagles signed WR Chris Givens, formerly of the Ravens, to a one-year contract.

Givens reunites with Sam Bradford, who he had the most success with in St. Louis from 2012-2013, posting a 60-993-3 line across 22 games. Givens' career arc has been in steady decline ever since. In Philadelphia, he'll compete with Josh Huff for snaps behind Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor.

Free agent WR Chris Givens is visiting the Eagles on Wednesday.

Givens just wrapped up a visit with the Jets on Tuesday. The 26-year-old is a one-trick pony as a deep threat, but he's at least shown signs of doing it somewhat well. Givens caught 60 passes for 993 yards (16.55 YPR) and three touchdowns from Sam Bradford with the Rams in 2012-2013.

Free agent WR Chris Givens visited the Jets on Tuesday.

Givens would be a streak route specialist for a team waiting on 2015 second-rounder Devin Smith (torn ACL) to return to full health.
Tue, Mar 15, 2016 05:32:00 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec doesn't expect the Ravens to re-sign free agent Chris Givens.

Givens posted a 19-346-1 line across 12 games with the Ravens after coming over in a trade with the Rams. He saw his snaps increase after Steve Smith Sr. tore his Achilles', but the extra work didn't lead to many plays for Givens, who struggles with anything outside of a "go" route. Givens hasn't made much noise since a decent 42-698-3 rookie season back in 2012.
Wed, Feb 10, 2016 10:01:00 AM

Chris Givens failed to catch any of his four targets in the Ravens' Week 17 loss to the Bengals.

He was super inefficient after being acquired from the Rams ahead of the trade deadline back in October. In 12 games with the Ravens, Givens caught 19 balls for 346 yards and one score as a deep threat. He caught just one seven-yard pass for St. Louis in September. Givens has deep speed that teams like, but he's a one-trick pony for the most part. He'll be a free agent in March and just turned 26 last month. Givens won't command any guaranteed money.
Mon, Jan 4, 2016 12:15:00 AM

Ravens WR Chris Givens caught 1-of-5 targets for 17 yards in Baltimore's Week 15 loss to Kansas City.

Givens was an inefficient receiver in St. Louis, and that inefficiency has followed him to Baltimore. He has 18 catches on 46 targets this season.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 04:55:00 PM

Chris Givens caught 3-of-8 targets for 68 yards in the Ravens' Week 13 loss against the Miami.

Givens got most of his yards on two 20-plus yard catches on the final drive of the first half. He was the No. 3 option behind Kamar Aiken and Buck Allen. Despite the solid game, Givens remains just a deep threat.
