Nov 27 - 3:23 PM

Bills declared WR Walter Powell, OT Cyrus Kouandjio, DT Corbin Bryant, TE Gerald Christian, CB Marcus Roberson, LB Brandon Spikes, and QB Cardale Jones inactive for Week 11 against the Bengals.

No surprises in this group. NT Marcell Dareus is back for the Bills.
Nov 20 - 11:33 AM

Bills WR Walter Powell made the initial 53-man roster.

Powell opened camp behind both Greg Little and Dez Lewis on the depth chart, but he played well enough to knock both off the roster. A 2014 sixth-round pick of the Cardinals, Powell has spent most of his career on various practice squads. He has no value as the Bills' fifth receiver.
Sep 3 - 7:56 AM

Bills promoted WR Walter Powell from the practice squad.

Robert Woods (groin) is expected to miss Week 16, but Powell is a strict return specialist.

Powell had been on the Bills' practice squad. The return specialist has played six career snaps on offense.

Jets claimed WR Walter Powell off waivers from the Cardinals.

Powell is an undersized, athletically-deficient prospect out of Murray State. The Jets would have been better off keeping Quincy Enunwa stashed on the 53.

Cardinals waived WR Walter Powell.

He got beaten out by John and Jaron Brown in training camp. The 196th pick in May's draft, Powell figures to land with the Cardinals' practice squad.

Cardinals signed sixth-round WR Walter Powell to a four-year contract.

Powell (5-foot-11 1/8, 189) set Murray State receiving records all across the board during his career. He isn't overly explosive, as evidenced by a 4.63 forty and 31.5-inch vertical. Powell will have to show well on special teams.

Cardinals selected Murray State WR Walter Powell with the No. 196 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Powell (5-foot-11 1/8, 189) is the Racers' all-time leader in receptions (208), receiving yards (2,650), and receiving scores (29). He added three career special teams TDs, two on punt returns and one on a kickoff. Unfortunately, Powell ran 4.63 at the Combine with a 31 1/2-inch vertical, and sub-200-pound receivers without top speed are generally NFL long shots. Powell was also arrested last October for domestic violence, though charges were dropped. He's a low-ceiling special teams/slot receiver prospect who may have a tough time making the Cardinals' 53.
