  • Panthers' Javien Elliott: Shows versatility in limited role

    Elliott recorded 38 tackles (24 solo), a half sack, two pass breakups and one interception across 16 contests in 2019.

    Elliott held a rotational role in Carolina's secondary for much of the season while also contributing on special teams. He'll become an unrestricted free agent in March, but even if the Panthers opt to re-sign him, Elliott won't be on the IDP radar in 2020.

  • Panthers' Javien Elliott: Headed to Carolina

    Elliott agreed to a contract with the Panthers on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Elliott spent the 2018 season with the Buccaneers, playing in 15 games and recording 24 tackles (22 solo) and one interception in 15 games. The 24-year-old could provide depth at the cornerback and contribute on special teams for Carolina.

  • Buccaneers' Javien Elliott: Promoted to active roster

    The Buccaneers promoted Elliot from their practice squad Tuesday.

    Elliot appeared in six games for the Buccaneers this season before being waived on Oct. 23, totaling just one tackle. He'll likely provide much-needed depth to Tampa Bay's linebacker corps.

  • Javien Elliott: Waived by Tampa Bay

    Elliott was waived by the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    Elliott was let go once the team decided to bring on De'Vante Harris. Perhaps Elliott will latch on elsewhere, but speculation seems a bit premature at this point.

  • Buccaneers' Javien Elliott: Promoted to active roster

    Elliott was promoted to the Buccaneers' active roster Saturday.

    Elliott was promoted to the 53-man roster following the placement of De'Vante Harris (hamstring) on injured reserve. A 2016 undrafted free agent, Elliott has played 21 games with Tampa over the last two seasons, recording 13 tackles and one pass defensed. Elliott should serve as a depth nickel corner and special-teams contributor this season.

  • Buccaneers' Javien Elliott: Suits up for Wednesday's joint practice

    Elliott (undisclosed) was seen in pads before Wednesday's joint practice versus the Titans, although his level of participation has not been confirmed, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    Elliott had yet to practice following last Thursday's preseason opener, but it appears he participated in at least a limited fashion Wednesday. Buccaneers cornerbacks have taken some hits on the injury front recently, as in addition to Elliott's recent absences, Vernon Hargreaves (groin) and Carlton Davis (ankle) both remain sidelined.

  • Buccaneers' Javien Elliott: Sidelined Saturday

    Elliott did not practice Saturday due to an undisclosed injury, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    It's unclear how severe Elliott's injury is, so the defensive back should be considered day-to-day until Tampa Bay can provide an update. Elliott re-signed with the Buccaneers back in March after playing a special-teams role for most of the 2017 season.

  • Buccaneers' Javien Elliott: Re-signs with Buccaneers

    Elliott re-signed with the Buccaneers on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Elliott was set to become a restricted free agent if he and the Bucs were unable to reach a deal. The third-year cornerback played in 15 games for the team last season, but mainly in a special teams role. He will look to earn a more prominent role on defense during offseason camp.

  • Buccaneers' Javien Elliott: Registers five tackles in second season

    Elliott recorded five tackles over 15 games in 2017.

    Elliott is more of a special-teams player, but injuries to the Buccaneers' secondary forced him into extensive action as a nickel corner during some games. However, when he did see playing time, he didn't come close to producing at a clip that could draw appeal in IDP circles. Now an exclusive-rights free agent at the end of the league year, Elliott isn't guaranteed to return to Tampa Bay in 2018.

  • Buccaneers' Javien Elliott: Inactive Sunday

    Elliott is inactive due to coach's decision for Sunday's tilt against Chicago, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Elliott's inactive status is likely the result of Tampa Bay's unexpected bye week last week. He isn't expected to play much unless the team faces a rash of injuries that force him into action.

  • Buccaneers' Javien Elliott: Makes strong case Wednesday

    Elliott, battling Robert McClain for the nickel corner job, turned in a strong practice Wednesday, Joe Kania of the team's official site reports.

    Despite being victimized by rookie Chris Godwin for a spectacular one-handed touchdown grab in one-on-one drills, Elliott's day was largely a success. He actually had solid coverage on the acrobatic catch, and he also picked off Jameis Winston during team drills during the session. Elliott added a strip of receiver Shaq Hill in one-on-ones, ripping the ball loose just after the pass had arrived. The FSU product recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) and one pass defensed in six games last season and logged 38 total snaps (31 on defense, seven on special teams) in last Thursday's win over the Jaguars.

  • Buccaneers' Javien Elliott: Standing out as nickel corner

    Elliott continued his strong start to camp by breaking up multiple passes in Thursday's practice, Joe Kania of the team's official site reports.

    The FSU product has been working as the No. 3 corner in the majority of practices thus far and has flashed in nearly every session. Thursday's may have been his most impressive, however, as Elliott recorded at least three passes defensed and often provided blanket coverage against Adam Humphries in team drills. The 24-year-old spent time on the practice squad last season and also logged six games with the Bucs, posting 10 tackles (eight solo) and one pass defensed.

  • Buccaneers' Javien Elliott: Promoted from practice squad Tuesday

    Elliott was promoted from the practice squad Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    The rookie will take the roster spot of the suspended Jude Adjei-Barimah and provide some depth at corner for the depleted Bucs, who also saw Brent Grimes suffer a quad injury in Sunday's game against the Chiefs. If Grimes is unable to suit up for the Week 12 tilt against the Seahawks, Elliott and Josh Robinson figure in as the top backups behind presumed starters Alterraun Verner and Vernon Hargreaves.
