Eagles released CB Dwayne Gratz.
QB Dane Evans was signed in a corresponding move. A former third-round pick of the Jaguars, Gratz was signed last December by the Eagles and stuck around through the offseason program, so it is somewhat surprising he was let go just before camp. He will likely latch on somewhere else. Jul 23 - 5:58 PM

Eagles signed CB Dwayne Gratz.

The Eagles are desperate enough to just give guys tries at cornerback that they're resorting to their emergency list. Gratz is a failed former third-round pick of the Jaguars who was also cut by the Rams in November.

Rams waived CB Dwayne Gratz.

The buzzed-about 2013 third-rounder played two snaps for the Rams after being claimed off waivers last month.
Tue, Nov 22, 2016 04:08:00 PM

Rams claimed CB Dwayne Gratz off waivers from the Jaguars.

With Trumaine Johnson battling an ankle injury, the Rams need another body at cornerback. Gratz washed out in Jacksonville, but could see better results in Los Angeles with the Rams' pass rush making life difficult for opposing quarterbacks.

Jaguars waived CB Dwayne Gratz.

A 2013 draft darling as the No. 64 overall pick, Gratz was hailed as an immediate starter, but had an uneven rookie year. His play has gone downhill since, limiting him to 85 snaps this season. Now 26, Gratz could get claimed on waivers, but the shine has obviously worn off his status.

The Florida Times-Union's Hays Carlyon reports CBs Dwayne Gratz and Demetrius McCray will likely be fighting for one roster spot this offseason.

Carlyon says both could be gone by Week 1. A third-round pick in 2013, Gratz fell behind college quarterback Nick Marshall on the cornerback depth chart last season. Gratz's relatively cheap salary should keep him around through training camp, but his roster spot is anything but secure. Jacksonville will look to bring in secondary help in free agency and the draft.

Jaguars CB Dwayne Gratz was a healthy scratch Week 16.

Gratz was on the injury report with a hamstring injury, but he was given a probable designation, indicating he was healthy enough to play. Gratz has fallen behind UDFA rookie Nick Marshall, who was a quarterback as recently as The Senior Bowl. Due just $790,076 next season, the 2013 third-round pick will likely stick around through training camp, but his spot on next year's roster is anything but guaranteed.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 11:22:00 PM

Jaguars third-year CB Dwayne Gratz is expected to be a backup in 2015.

The No. 64 overall pick in the 2013 draft is coming off a brutal sophomore season and is no higher than fourth on the depth chart behind projected outside starters Demetrius McCray and Davon House and top slot corner Aaron Colvin. Beat writer John Oehser wonders if Gratz could get some looks at safety.

The Florida Times Union believes Jaguars CB Dwayne Gratz's future may be covering the slot.

Gratz has had a terrible sophomore season, getting benched after getting hurt in Week 4. He was eventually reinserted into the starting lineup at left corner after CB Alan Ball went on I.R. in Week 8. Gratz has graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 105 cover corner out of 117 qualifiers. But he's been a top-11 corner against the run. Gratz has the physicality at 5-foot-11, 201.
Tue, Dec 2, 2014 09:54:00 PM

Jaguars CB Dwayne Gratz was arrested and cited for misdemeanor disorderly intoxication and trespassing in Miami over the weekend.

Gratz spent his bye weekend getting loaded and apprehended. Speaking Monday, coach Gus Bradley acknowledged an "unfortunate situation." They're minor crimes in the grand scheme of things, but not a good development for a disappointing second-year pro. Gratz has already been benched once this season, but was thrust back into the starting lineup following Alan Ball's season-ending biceps injury.
Mon, Nov 17, 2014 02:12:00 PM

The Jaguars have benched CB Dwayne Gratz in favor of Demetrius McCray.

Gratz appeared to be one of GM Dave Caldwell's most promising "hits" coming out of last year's draft, but he's taken a big step back as a sophomore. McCray, a seventh-rounder in the same draft, will make his third straight start.
Fri, Oct 17, 2014 01:26:00 PM

Jaguars CB Dwayne Gratz (concussion) has been cleared to practice.

After missing Week 5, Gratz should return to his starting post opposite Alan Ball. But that's not a given after Demetrius McCray played well in Gratz's place against the Steelers. The 0-5 Jaguars should be promoting competition.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 10:27:00 AM

Jaguars CB Dwayne Gratz has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Gratz was immobilized after a scary collision with Keenan Allen, but was able to walk off the field with a little help from trainers. He was replaced by Demetrius McCray.
Mon, Sep 29, 2014 09:06:00 AM

Jaguars CB Dwayne Gratz exited Sunday's Week 4 game with an apparent head injury.

It looked like a concussion at best. Gratz was assisted off the field by trainers and appeared incredibly woozy. He almost certainly won't return.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 05:12:00 PM

Jaguars.com's John Oehser said the Jaguars view second-year CB Dwayne Gratz as a "building block of the defense."

Gratz had a solid rookie campaign, earning positive marks from Pro Football Focus and holding opposing quarterbacks to a meager 75.7 quarterback rating when they threw his way. Will Blackmon will challenge him, but Gratz is the favorite to open the season opposite Alan Ball.
