Waived by Washington

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-05-30

The Commanders waived Dantzler on Tuesday, John Keim of reports.

Dantzler was cut by the Vikings in March and claimed off waivers by Washington, but he finds himself as a free agent for the second time this offseason following the first waves of OTAs. The 2020 third-round pick totaled 149 tackles, 17 pass defenses, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and three defensive touchdowns across 35 appearances with Minnesota, so he should draw at least some interest if he hits the open market.

Claimed off waivers by Washington

Washington claimed Dantzler off waivers Monday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Dantzler was waived by Minnesota on Friday and will head to Washington ahead of the new league year. The 2020 third-round pick has totaled 149 tackles, 17 pass defenses, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and three defensive touchdowns in 35 appearances across his first three NFL seasons. He figures to compete for a rotational role in Washington's secondary during the offseason.

Done in Minnesota

The Vikings waived Dantzler on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Dantzler began his career in Minnesota back in 2020 and drew nine starts last season, but he was ultimately part of the reason why the Vikings sported a league-worst pass defense. After having registered 50 tackles and five passes defensed in 2022, Dantzler will now look for playing opportunities elsewhere.

Hindered by injuries again in 2022

Over 10 regular-season games, Dantzler (ankle) registered 50 tackles (45 solo), five passes defended and one fumble recovery in 2022.

Dantzler reprised his starting role from the end of the 2021 campaign, playing at least 89 percent of defensive snaps in all but one of the first seven games in 2022. However, he missed eight of the final 10 games of the season while battling an ankle injury, which limited him to a career-low 10 regular-season contests. The third-year cornerback still has yet to play a full season in his NFL career. With Minnesota's most productive cornerbacks Patrick Peterson and Chandon Sullivan both set to become free agents this offseason, Dantzler could be in line for the team's top cornerback spot heading into the final season of his rookie contract in 2023.

Won't play Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-15

Dantzler (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Giants, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

As expected, Dantzler is inactive for the playoff matchup due to an ankle injury that sidelined him throughout practice this week. His absence will likely lead to extra playing time for Chandon Sullivan and Kris Boyd.

May miss Sunday

Dantzler (ankle) is expected to be out Sunday against the Giants, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Danztler was unable to practice this week and has only played twice since Week 9 against Washington. His likely absence will be a blow to the team's depth at secondary and likely lead to extra opportunity for Chandon Sullivan and Kris Boyd.

Questionable for wild-card matchup

Dantzler (ankle/personal) is questionable for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Giants, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Dantzler hasn't practiced all week and is dealing with a serious personal matter, per head coach Kevin O'Connell. The extent of the situation remains unclear, but it appears Minnesota may be without a key part of its secondary against the Giants on Sunday.

Misses practice Wednesday

Dantzler (ankle/personal) didn't practice Wednesday.

Dantzler has been dealing with a lingering ankle issue, but he reportedly missed Wednesday's practice for a personal family matter, per Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The extent of Dantzler's absence remains unclear, but he'll have two more chances to practice before the Vikings need to make a decision on his status for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Giants.
