Minor NFL Transactions: 2/17/16

Here are today’s minor signings, cuts, and other moves:

  • The Patriots have released defensive back Leonard Johnson, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Johnson signed with the Patriots on December 9th and went on to appear in four regular season games (three starts). Johnson made 17 starts for the Bucs from 2012-14.
  • The Giants re-signed long snapper Zak DeOssie, according to Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle (on Twitter). DeOssie is one of the Giants’ longest-tenured players, having served as the team’s long snapper since being drafted in the fourth round in 2007. A two-time Pro Bowler, and one of the club’s captains, the 31-year-old never missed a game due to injury until he was placed on IR in December.

It’s not a huge move, but I’m surprised the Pats let Johnson go. I seem to remember some analysts (maybe Andy Benoit at MMQB) praising Johnson’s ability to come in midseason and play well.
