Minor NFL Transactions: 4/1/16

Here’s a rundown of today’s minor signings, cuts, and other moves:

  • The Chiefs have inked linebacker Andy Mulumba to a one-year pact, according to his agent (Twitter link via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). Mulumba, who met with the Chiefs on Wednesday, previously drew interest from New England. He spent the first three years of his career in Green Bay, appeared in 22 regular-season contests and recorded three starts. Mulumba was delayed in signing anywhere because of citizenship issues, per Weston Hodkiewicz of USA Today. The native of the Democratic Republic of Congo is a Canadian citizen and has been working to attain U.S. citizenship and residency, but he had to return to Canada after his work visa expired. Mulumba met with the Chiefs and Patriots on a visitor visa. Now that he has found employment again, Mulumba can return to the U.S.
  • In addition to Mulumba, the Chiefs have signed safety Jimmy Wilson to a one-year deal, Pro Football Talk reports (Twitter link). Wilson, 29, appeared in 13 games with San Diego last season before the team released him in December. Since entering the league as a seventh-rounder in 2011, Wilson has played in 73 regular-season games, logged 28 starts, and amassed five interceptions.
  • The Titans have agreed to terms with linebacker Curtis Grant, according to Jim Wyatt of Titans Online (on Twitter). Grant was a member of Atlanta’s taxi squad towards the end of the year and also auditioned for Seattle in January.
  • The Eagles signed Ryan Mueller, according to Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer (on Twitter). Mueller previously played linebacker in the NFL, but he’ll be a fullback for Philly. The 24-year-old out of Kansas State spent 2015 with San Diego. It’s a two-year deal, according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer (Twitter link).
  • The Eagles have waived offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson, as McLane tweets.
