Here are today’s minor transactions from around the NFL…
- The Dolphins announced on Twitter that they’ve signed receiver Griff Whalen, who spent the first three years of his career in Indianapolis. Whalen totaled 19 receptions, 205 yards and a touchdown in 14 games last season. His best output came in 2013, when he amassed career highs in catches (24), targets (40), yards (259) and scores (two) in just nine games.
- The Colts have signed running back Jordan Todman, they announced via press release. The Colts are the fifth organization for Todman, a sixth-round pick in 2011 who was most recently with the Steelers. After combining for 147 touches (108 rushes, 39 receptions) from 2013-14, he totaled a mere four last season.
- The Chiefs tweeted the signing of linebacker Tautvydas Kieras, a native of Lithuania who attended Mississippi State. Kieras didn’t play college football there, however, instead starring in track and field. He set the school record in the discus.
- The Vikings have signed tight end Brian Leonhardt to a one-year, $600K deal, per ESPN’s Ben Goessling (on Twitter). Leonhardt has appeared in seven career games with the Raiders and 49ers since entering the NFL in 2014. He has seven catches and a touchdown to his name.
