Panthers waived WR Tavarres King.
King was thought to be the favorite for situational deep threat duties after Tiquan Underwood was released. He had a solid preseason opener, but followed it up with three lackluster efforts. King will likely get another shot on a receiver-needy team thanks to his 4.40 wheels and 6'1/200 size. Aug 30 - 9:39 AM

Tavarres King appears to have overtaken Brenton Bersin as the Panthers' No. 4 wide receiver.

The top three are Kelvin Benjamin, Jerricho Cotchery, and Jason Avant. King ran 4.40 at the 2013 Combine with a quality 10-foot-3 broad jump at just over 6-foot, 189. He could serve as a situational deep threat for the Panthers.

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton said WR Tavarres King's "stock is rising."

King wrapped up a reportedly solid week of camp by catching all four of his targets for 50 yards against the Bills Friday night. A fifth-round pick of the Broncos last season, King has the talent to challenge Jason Avant for the No. 3 receiver job. He is a name to watch this preseason.

Tavarres King and Marvin McNutt would be the Panthers starting receivers if the season started today.

Over the last week, the Panthers have cut Steve Smith, whiffed on Hakeem Nicks/James Jones, and watched Brandon LaFell/Ted Ginn/Domenik Hixon sign elsewhere. GM Dave Gettleman will likely add a veteran in the form of Jerricho Cotchery or maybe Kenny Britt, but King is a name to watch. He led the NCAA in yards per reception at 22.6 as a senior at Georgia, lit up Alabama for 128 yards on five catches in the SEC title game and has 4.47 wheels.
Mar 19 - 10:20 AM

Panthers declared WR Tavarres King inactive for Sunday's Week 10 game at San Francisco.

King hasn't caught a pass since the Panthers claimed him off waivers three weeks ago. The Panthers head into this game very healthy. The rest of their: WR Marvin McNutt, DB Josh Norman, DB James Dockery, G Chris Scott, TE Brandon Williams and DL Wes Horton.

Panthers claimed WR Tavarres King off waivers from the Broncos.

A fifth-round pick in April's draft, King was promoted to the Broncos' active roster last week after the Packers displayed interest, but they apparently didn't have a spot for him for Week 8. He'll bring up the rear of Carolina's receiver corps, but has an excellent shot at remaining on the active roster through the end of the regular season. The Panthers are woefully thin at wideout.

Broncos waived WR Tavarres King.

The move clears a spot for Von Miller's return to the active roster. A fifth-round pick, King was just promoted from the practice squad Tuesday and could draw some interest on waivers.
Sat, Oct 19, 2013 02:10:00 PM

Broncos promoted WR Tavarres King from the practice squad.

LB Adrian Robinson was waived in a corresponding roster move. According to the Denver Post, King can "thank the Green Bay Packers." The receiver-needy Pack were apparently trying to sign the Broncos' fifth-round pick, who was surprisingly waived at final cuts. He was stashed on the practice squad after clearing waivers. King will not have a role in the game-day offense.

Broncos signed WR Tavarres King to the practice squad.

A fifth-round pick, it speaks to what must have been an extremely poor summer that King went through waivers unclaimed. Although he could be signed to the active roster at some point this season, King will likely develop on the taxi squad before making another roster run next summer.

Broncos waived WR Tavarres King.

Beat writer Jeff Legwold recently anointed King the Broncos' fifth receiver, but his five-catch preseason apparently wasn't enough. A fifth-round pick, King was initially considered a contender for the Broncos' No. 4 receiver job. King boasts 4.47 speed and 33-inch arms to go along with his 6-0, 189 frame, so he should get some looks on waivers. If not, he'll be stashed on the practice squad.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 03:26:00 PM

Fifth-round rookie Tavarres King has settled in as the Broncos' No. 5 receiver.

It's disappointing for King, who had a realistic shot to beat out Andre Caldwell for the No. 4 gig. That would have put him one injury away from a real role on a team that will use three receivers as a base formation. Through three preseason games, King has three catches for 29 yards and no scores.

ESPN believes fifth-round WR Tavarres King is making a "legitimate push" to be the Broncos' No. 4 receiver.

Per reporter Jeff Legwold, King has displayed "upper-level ball skills," and the ability to "make plays in traffic." OC Adam Gase praised King last week, saying he's "made some big plays down the field," and "done a good job of not being the guy we are calling out to fix things." Just one injury away from a big role in one of the league's most dynamic offenses, King is a name to file away.

Broncos OC Adam Gase has been pleased with fifth-round WR Tavarres King's training camp.

"(He's) made some big plays down the field," Gase said. "He is catching the ball fairly consistently, and he's done a good job of not being the guy we are calling out to fix things. He studied his book, obviously, this summer and made sure he wasn't going to be the guy making mistakes." King has a legitimate shot at earning No. 4 receiver duties, but obviously won't be fantasy relevant if the Broncos keep their top three receivers healthy. For now, King is just someone to keep an eye on in Dynasty leagues.

Tue, Jul 30, 2013 08:59:00 PM

The Denver Post thinks fifth-round WR Tavarres King has a "good chance" of becoming the Broncos' No. 4 receiver as a rookie.

It's notable because the Broncos run so much out of their three-wide sets, and King would be an injury away from becoming relevant. King is a straight-line speedster with 4.47 wheels who averaged 22.6 YPR on 42 catches as a senior. Demaryius Thomas has missed 11 games in three seasons due to injury.

Broncos signed fifth-round WR Tavarres King to a four-year contract.

A speedster with adequate size at just over 6-feet-tall and 189 pounds, King averaged 22.6 yards per reception as a senior for the Georgia Bulldogs. Eric Decker is in a contract year and Wes Welker won't last forever, so there is some opportunity at the end of the tunnel if King shows well as a rookie.
