CSN Washington doesn't envision Redskins WR Dezmon Briscoe making the final 53-man roster.

Briscoe, a 2010 sixth-round pick of the Bengals, was claimed off waivers by the Redskins from the Bucs last July. He ended up making the team and appearing in seven games last season, but he caught just two passes for 22 yards. Briscoe is no higher than seventh on the depth chart, right now.

The Cowboys, Eagles and Bengals also put in waiver claims on Redskins WR Dezmon Briscoe following his Thursday release from the Bucs.

It doesn't appear the league at large shares new Bucs coach Greg Schiano's opinion of the (soon to be) 23-year-old former sixth-round pick. It's also a sign Briscoe should be able to latch on elsewhere if he can't crack the Redskins' crowded receiver corps.

Redskins claimed WR Dezmon Briscoe off waivers from the Buccaneers.

The Raheem Morris connection pays off for Briscoe. A talented but unfocused 22-year-old, Briscoe led the 2011 Buccaneers in touchdowns (6) and has some appeal as a red-zone threat. The new regime in Tampa Bay got rid of Briscoe because he skipped offseason workouts and failed his conditioning test to open training camp. Briscoe will battle for a roster spot in Washington.

Dezmon Briscoe failed his conditioning test prior to being waived by the Bucs, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

New coach Greg Schiano's conditioning test includes running 16 110-yard dashes in a predetermined amount of time. Briscoe didn't meet the standard for wide receivers, and also failed to show for voluntary offseason workouts this spring. He'll hit the open market with some baggage.

Bucs released WR Dezmon Briscoe.

The writing was on the wall when Briscoe failed to show for the start of OTAs in May after missing pre-draft workouts. Hard-line head coach Greg Schiano is shipping all holdovers from the Raheem Morris regime if they come with commitment issues. With Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams, Preston Parker and Arrelious Benn in line for the top four spots, Briscoe was a roster longshot regardless.

WR Dezmon Briscoe has reported for the second week of Bucs OTAs.

Briscoe missed pre-draft voluntary workouts in addition to the first week of OTAs, but has finally gotten himself to Bucs Park. Perhaps he was spooked by Monday's trade of Kellen Winslow. Briscoe needs a strong offseason and camp to be assured of holding his roster spot.

Bucs WR Dezmon Briscoe was a no-show again for the start of OTAs Tuesday.

The OTAs are voluntary, but Briscoe isn't assured of a roster spot in Tampa and can't endear himself to the new coaching staff when he's not there. Briscoe also missed pre-draft voluntary workouts due to a personal issue. It's fair to wonder if the third-year receiver's priorities are no longer on football.
