Colts signed RB/KR Jeff Demps to a reserve/future contract.

Demps, who won a silver medal on the American 4×100-meter relay team in the 2012 Olympics, will compete for a spot on the Colts' special teams unit next season.
Jan 19 - 5:57 PM

Colts signed RB Jeff Demps to the practice squad.

The Olympic sprinter will bide his time on the taxi squad as he waits for a spot to open up on special teams in Indy.

Bucs waived RB/KR Jeff Demps.

Demps (5-foot-8, 191) is too small to play running back and didn't make enough of an impact in the return game this preseason to keep a roster spot. The Olympic sprinter is the fastest man in the NFL, but he only plays special teams.

Jeff Demps got some reps as a slot receiver during last week's workouts.

Per the Tampa Bay Times, Demps "made a lot of plays last week." Of course, the Olympic sprinter is always going to look good in non-contact settings because he's the fastest man in the NFL. At 5'8/191 with little receiving experience, we wouldn't expect him to contribute as a pass-catcher in real games. Demps is a return man and gadget player.

Bucs KR/RB Jeff Demps is putting his track career on hold and focusing solely on football.

Demps is an Olympic sprinter and skipped much of last offseason to run in the IAAF World Championships last August. He was part of the team that won a silver medal in the 4x100 relay at the 2012 Olympics. Demps is penciled in as Tampa's return man, though he'll be competing with Eric Page and others.

Bucs placed KR/RB Jeff Demps on injured reserve with a groin injury, ending his season.

Demps was active for just two games this season and underwent groin surgery last month. The Bucs claimed rookie DB Bradley McDougald off waivers to replace him on the active roster. Demps will compete for a special teams role in 2014.

Bucs KR/RB Jeff Demps underwent groin surgery Thursday.

It's unclear how much time the Olympian will miss, but it's quite possible the Bucs will simply stash him on injured reserve. Including returns, Demps has touched the ball just eight times in two games. He's not a key cog in Tampa.

Bucs KR/RB Jeff Demps is nursing a groin injury.

Demps pulled up lame during the Week 6 loss to the Eagles. The Bucs have signed WR/KR Skye Dawson off their practice squad, so it looks like they're expecting Demps to miss some time.
Wed, Oct 16, 2013 12:42:00 PM

Bucs activated KR Jeff Demps from the exempt/commissioner's permission list.

Demps was given special dispensation from the league after missing all of the offseason and training camp for the track and field season. They cleared a spot for the speedster by placing TE Luke Stocker on IR. Demps should slide right in as the Bucs kickoff returner.
Tue, Sep 24, 2013 08:24:00 AM

The Bucs have until Sept. 23 to decide whether to keep KR Jeff Demps on their roster.

The NFL has granted the Bucs a roster exemption for Demps, who has been on the Reserve/Did Not Report list. He took a two-week break after the end of track and field season, finally reporting to Tampa on Monday. "The guy hasn't played football in a while, so we'll try to get him back into playing football and get him educated in the Buccaneer way," coach Greg Schiano said. Demps has two weeks to prove the Bucs should use one of their 53 roster spots on him.
Thu, Sep 12, 2013 09:12:00 AM

Bucs KR Jeff Demps is expected to report to the team Monday.

Demps, an Olympic sprinter, missed the entire offseason and ran in the World Championships. It's hard to see the Bucs just welcoming back with open arms and making him active on Sundays. During Sunday's loss to the Jets, Doug Martin, Eric Page and Kevin Ogletree each brought back a kickoff.
Sun, Sep 8, 2013 10:34:00 PM

Speaking Tuesday, Bucs coach Greg Schiano said KR Jeff Demps "supposedly" still plans to report to the team.

"He’s out there running track somewhere," Schiano said. "So, if he’s going to do that — if he gets here and helps us win he will be part of it. If he gets here and can’t help us win, he can go back and run track. We are here to win games." Needless to say, it doesn't sound like Demps is a part of Schiano's plans. The practice squad is looking like a stretch right now.
Tue, Aug 20, 2013 04:25:00 PM

Bucs KR Jeff Demps will not join the team until late in the preseason after accepting an invitation to run in Moscow's IAAF World Championships on August 18.

Demps doubles as an Olympic sprinter, and has all along made it clear his first love is track and field. The Bucs knew this when they acquired Demps from the Patriots for LeGarrette Blount. Demps' event at the Moscow games will be the 4x100 relay. The same relay team won a silver medal at the 2012 Olympics.
Mon, Jul 22, 2013 03:43:00 PM

The Tampa Bay Times reports Bucs KR Jeff Demps still hopes to join the team in the coming weeks "depending on his track and field schedule."

Demps is awaiting word on if he'll be running in an event in Moscow from August 10-18. If he is, it would wipe out nearly all of camp and at least two preseason games. Demps would be one of the fastest players in the league — clearly — but it's hard to see him earning a roster spot. Being a two-sport athlete just isn't a realistic endeavor in this day and age.
