Jaguars signed RB Tyler Gaffney.

Gaffney has never appeared in an NFL game since being drafted in 2014. He had strong measurables coming out of Stanford and produced in the preseason but has never been able to stick. Gaffney will compete for the No. 4 job in Jacksonville.
Aug 2 - 10:36 AM

Patriots waived RB Tyler Gaffney.

A preseason star with top-shelf Combine measurables, Gaffney became expendable with the signing of Rex Burkhead. Burkhead, Dion Lewis, James White, and D.J. Foster are the four tailbacks left on New England's roster.
Mar 20 - 5:12 PM

Patriots signed RB Tyler Gaffney, OL Chris Barker, LB Trevor Bates, OL Jamil Douglas, OL Chase Farris, DL Woodrow Hamilton, DL Darius Kilgo, WR Devin Lucien and TE Rob Housler to reserve/future contracts.

Housler's deal was previously reported. A 2014 sixth-rounder, Gaffney has never appeared in a regular season game.
Feb 7 - 5:05 PM

Patriots waived RB Tyler Gaffney.

It's an indication Dion Lewis will be activated from the PUP list. Gaffney's stay on the active roster lasted 12 days.

Patriots signed RB Tyler Gaffney from the practice squad.

It confirms Dion Lewis (knee, PUP) won't be activated this week. Lewis could return after New England's Week 9 bye.

Patriots released RB Tyler Gaffney with an injury settlement.

Gaffney's foot injury was never expected to be a season ender. He should resurface when healthy.

Patriots waived/injured RB Tyler Gaffney.

It was originally reported Gaffney was waived, but he will stick on the Pats' injured reserve if he passes through waivers unclaimed. He was reportedly dealing with a foot injury. It is possible he is released with an injury settlement.

Patriots waived/released RB Tyler Gaffney, WR Keshawn Martin, and DT Markus Kuhn.

Gaffney surprisingly got run with the first-team offense in the third preseason game, but he ended up losing his roster spot to undrafted rookie D.J. Foster. With Gaffney gone, LeGarrette Blount is locked into an early-down role and a sneaky bet to put up RB2 numbers early in the season.
Sat, Sep 3, 2016 01:15:00 PM

Tyler Gaffney left the Patriots' preseason finale with an ankle injury.

The injury didn't appear severe, but it could contribute to Gaffney losing his roster spot. Pats beat writers seem to believe D.J. Foster has locked up a job behind LeGarrette Blount and James White, and Brandon Bolden is safe due to his special teams experience. Dion Lewis will open the season on PUP.

The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe is "still not convinced" Tyler Gaffney will make the Patriots' 53-man roster.

We won't find out for sure until this weekend, and even after that it's possible Gaffney could be cut for a waiver claim. "I could also see a scenario where Gaffney makes the initial 53 but Pats like someone better on the waiver wire and make a midweek change," wrote Howe. Gaffney worked with the first-team offense in the regular season dress rehearsal, but his skills are somewhat redundant with LeGarrette Blount's. Howe seems to think Gaffney is the 52nd or 53rd player on the Patriots' roster.

Tyler Gaffney rushed nine times for 35 yards Friday night against the Panthers.

Gaffney started the game over LeGarrette Blount and ended up splitting possessions with the veteran while the first-team offense was on the field. He took advantage of the opportunity, sprinting off the left side for a 14-yard gain on his first carry and opening a touchdown drive with a 15-yard scamper. Gaffney has steadily been earning work with the first-team offense, and he now looks like a legitimate threat to Blount's workload. He is worth a look late even in standard formats.

Patriots RB Tyler Gaffney saw some work with the first-team offense during Monday's practice.

Gaffney earned some sleeper buzz after he tested incredibly well at the 2014 Combine, but both of his first two seasons ended with training-camp injuries. Now healthy, he is pushing for a role behind LeGarrette Blount. With Blount proven and Dion Lewis (knee, active/PUP) still on the sidelines, Gaffney should get plenty of work in the first preseason game.

Patriots re-signed RB Tyler Gaffney.

Gaffney's Monday release was apparently a procedural move. He'll fight for the Patriots' final running back spot this summer, but is unlikely to crack the 53-man roster.
Thu, Apr 14, 2016 05:15:00 PM

Patriots waived RB Tyler Gaffney.

Gaffney was a popular sleeper based on his athletic measurables background entering last offseason, but he was waived/injured halfway through training camp and never saw the field. Gaffney was a sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft.
