Bromley, a former third-round pick, served as a Giants depth cog for four seasons, playing in 55 games from 2014-17. He joined the Saints in May and released in September, but was brought back on Sept. 17. He’s out of work for now, but he could be back before long since the Saints have made a habit of add/dropping the same player throughout the season.
Goodson now joins the mix after a successful workout on Sept. 26. The cornerback has been on the workout circuit since missing the Packers’ final cut and will finally have an opportunity to showcase his skills this season. The 29-year-old hasn’t seen live action since November of 2016, but his next opportunity could come soon as the Saints are working with a banged up secondary.
The Bills are clearly looking for help in their secondary with the recent retirement of Vontae Davis. Amerson and Lippett are both pretty big names with plenty of starting experience, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see either of them sign. Bausby was an offseason star with the Eagles, but ultimately didn’t survive final cuts.

The Lions auditioned a host of free agents including cornerback David Amerson last week, according to veteran NFL reporter Howard Balzer (Twitterlinks).
Amerson inked a one-year deal with the Chiefs after being cut by the Raiders, but he essentially played himself out of a roster spot on a club that needed all the help it could get in the secondary. The 26-year-old defensive back made 42 starts with Washington and Oakland from 2014-16, but injuries and ineffectiveness have limited his production since that time.
The contract for Packers cornerback Demetri Goodson has tolled, meaning he will not be an unrestricted free agent in 2018, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Michael Cohen tweets.
As Cohen notes, a contract tolls when a player in the last year of his deal is on the physically unable to perform list past the sixth game of the season. The contract is pushed back a year, giving the team an extra year of control.
The 2014 sixth-round selection missed the entire 2017 season recovering from tearing both his ACL and MCL vs. the Redskins in 2016. Goodson returned to practice in November but did not see the field.
Before the injury, Goodson made three starts in six games in 2016. During his career, the Baylor product has appeared in 26 and registered 25 tackles.
The Packers placed cornerback Kevin King on Injured Reserve with a shoulder injury. To take his place, they have activated defensive back Demetri Goodson from the PUP list.
King, a second-round pick, was the Packers’ first pick in the 2017 draft after Green Bay moved down from No. 29 in a swap for the No. 33 selection (King) and a fourth-round choice. There were other big names on the board late in the first round, but the Packers were happy to expand their draft stockpile and land the Washington product. King only had so-so hype heading into the draft process, but he quickly turned heads with a 4.43 second 40-yard-dash, a 39.5-inch vertical leap, and the best times of any cornerback in both the three-cone drill and the 20-yard shuttle.
As a rookie, King appeared in nine games and made five starts for the Packers. Unfortunately, he was sidelined last week and team doctors have determined that he needs additional time to recover.
The advanced metrics haven’t been wowed with King’s play (he ranks 109 out of 115 qualified CBs, per Pro Football Focus) but his presence will be missed in Green Bay. Without King, the Packers will have to rely on two 2017 undrafted free agents, one 2016 UDFA, and a former sixth-round pick (Goodson) to support starters Davon House and Damarious Randall.
