Description: United States Olympic sprinter and former Florida Gators running back Jeff Demps has been activated.
Insight: Demps should become the team's kick returner. Eric Page has done a decent job as the returner, but he's not as explosive as Demps.

Description: United States Olympic sprinter and former Florida Gators running back Jeff Demps continues to delay his NFL career by trying to maintain a track and field presence too.
Insight: Though he says he wants to play football all indicators show otherwise. The Bucs may have traded LeGarrette Blount for only the seventh-round draft pick they received along with the rights to Demps.

Description: The Patriots have placed United States Olympic sprinter and former Florida Gators running back Jeff Demps on injured reserve.
Insight: NFL.com suggests that Demps wasn't believed to be seriously injured, but the Patriots wanted to allow the running back to rehabilitate with the team and spend a full offseason in their program next year.

Description: Former Florida Gators running back and United States Olympic sprinter Jeff Demps has signed with the New England Patriots.
Insight: Demps wasn't picked in the draft last April but he did show some NFL potential during his time at Florida, leading the Gators with six rushing touchdowns a season ago. He could get some chances as a kickoff/punt returner for the Pats, though that probably won't be enough to elevate him into any fantasy discussions.
