Minor Moves: Villanueva, Tanard Jackson

This time of year, NFL teams are engaged in a flurry of transactions, signing and releasing players with little or no game experience. We’ll keep track of said minor moves in this post, and any updates will be added to the top of the list:

  • The NFL has reinstated Redskins safety Tanard Jackson, tweets Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Jackson was suspended indefinitely in 2012 for violations of the league’s substance abuse program, and hasn’t seen game action since 2011.
  • The Eagles announced they have signed defensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva to a rookie free agent contract. Villanueva is a veteran of the the U.S. Army who has risen to the rank of captain, and has served three tours in Afghanistan. He last played football as a receiver for Army in 2009. The Eagles watched the 6’9″, 277 pound Villanueva work out at the Super Regional Combine in April.
