Broncos waived/released WR DeVier Posey, WR Durron Neal, TE Manasseh Garner, S Antonio Glover, DL Calvin Heurtelou, DT David Moala and LB Danrell Sankey.
Posey has made one appearance over the past two seasons. Both Posey and Neal were apparently having solid camps, but couldn't crack the Broncos' front-loaded receiver corps. Posey is only 26, but he's running out of NFL rope. Mon, Aug 29, 2016 02:00:00 PM

Broncos signed WR DeVier Posey to a reserve/future contract.

The Jets acquired Posey in a draft weekend trade with the Texans, but waived him before final cuts. Posey has made only one regular season appearance since 2013, and been racked by injury.
Tue, Jan 5, 2016 06:08:00 PM

Jets released WR DeVier Posey.

Posey was acquired from Houston in a draft night trade back in May. He had a quiet preseason, logging just three receptions for 21 yards.
Sun, Aug 30, 2015 12:28:00 PM

Jets acquired WR DeVier Posey and picks No. 82, 152 and 229 from the Texans in exchange for the No. 70 pick.

The Texans used that pick to draft Arizona State wideout Jaelen Strong. Posey barely played during his three years in Houston, logging just 22 catches for 272 yards. He's yet to find the end zone in 26 regular season appearances. Posey is no lock to make the Jets' final 53-man roster.

DeVier Posey caught one pass for 30 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss at Indy.

Posey drew the start with Andre Johnson (concussion) out, but saw just one target while Damaris Johnson got four. Posey also was flagged for a holding call that canceled out a 25-yard TD run by Arian Foster. He should be a healthy scratch again next week.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 05:20:00 PM

DeVier Posey is listed as the Texans' Week 15 starting wideout opposite DeAndre Hopkins.

Here's a long-shot dart throw if you're into those kinds of things. Posey has been a healthy scratch to this point in the season. The former Ohio State Buckeye was a third-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 12:04:00 PM

Texans declared WR DeVier Posey, QB Thad Lewis, CB Kareem Jackson, LB Akeem Dent, OT Jeff Adams and LB Jadeveon Clowney inactive for Sunday's Week 13 game against the Titans.

No surprises here. Posey is a healthy scratch once again and Clowney continues to struggle to get over his early-season knee injury.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 11:47:00 AM

DeVier Posey was a healthy scratch in Week 1.

The Texans only dressed four wideouts, allowing them to activate 10 defensive backs. Return man Damaris Johnson got the nod over Posey, as did Keshawn Martin.
Tue, Sep 9, 2014 08:39:00 AM

DeVier Posey caught four passes for 21 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.

All of Posey's grabs came in the second half from backup Case Keenum. The 2012 third-rounder is a poor bet to get on the fantasy radar this season as a backup receiver on a team that will run a lot of two-wide looks. Through three preseason games, Posey has six catches for 38 yards and one touchdown.
Sun, Aug 24, 2014 10:07:00 AM

DeVier Posey is the leading candidate for the Texans' slot job.

Coming off a 2012 Achilles' tear, Posey had just 15 catches for 155 yards and no scores in 14 games last season. He'll improve this year, but won't get on the fantasy radar behind Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins on a team that wants to defend and run the ball to win. The third receiver job isn't expected to be a big one for new coach Bill O'Brien, who projects to run plenty of "12" formations.
Thu, Jun 19, 2014 08:36:00 AM

Texans WR DeVier Posey suffered a high-ankle sprain in Houston's Week 15 loss to the Colts.

With only two weeks to go, it's likely a season-ending injury for the second-year pro. Posey was held without a catch before going down against Indy, and has just 15 grabs on the year. Posey is not a must-hold in Dynasty leagues, but he's not a must-drop, either.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 04:51:00 PM

DeVier Posey caught just one pass for five yards in Houston's Week 12 loss to the Jaguars.

Posey's fourth-quarter catch was his only target, while he ceded snaps to Keshawn Martin. Posey isn't on the WR5 radar for a team plumbing new weekly depths.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 06:44:00 PM

DeVier Posey caught three balls for 34 yards in the Texans' Week 10 loss to the Cardinals.

Posey has taken over as the Texans' third receiver behind Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins. Outside of Dynasty and 20-team leagues, the 2012 third-round pick out of Ohio State carries no fantasy appeal. Posey would need a Johnson or Hopkins injury to be worth consideration in standard settings.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 07:49:00 PM

DeVier Posey had three catches for 23 yards in Week 9 against the Colts.

He was targeted four times in the passing game. Posey has replaced Keshawn Martin as the No. 3 receiver, but doesn't have a defined role in the offense. He can continue to be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Mon, Nov 4, 2013 12:45:00 AM

DeVier Posey caught a 42-yard pass in Houston's Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

Posey's sixth catch of the season more than doubled his 2013 yardage total. There's no reason to believe his role will increase any time soon.
