Minor NFL Transactions: 7/12/16

We’ll keep track of the day’s latest minor moves here:

  • The Packers have signed former Maryland running back Brandon Ross, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. Ross went undrafted out of Maryland earlier this year, but signed with the Vikings in early May — he was cut after spending only three weeks on the roster. In his season senior season with the Terrapins, Ross rushed 150 times for nearly 1,000 yards, scoring 10 times. Per Demovsky, Ross will compete with Don Jackson and Brandon Burks — both fellow UDFAs — as well as John Crockett for Green Bay’s third running back job. The Packers weren’t forced to waive another player to fit Ross onto the roster because the club only had 88 players on their 90-man squad prior to today.
  • Roughly three weeks after he reverted to injured reserve after being waived, cornerback Brandon McGee has been cut from the Cowboys‘ IR with an injury settlement, reports Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle (Twitter link). McGee, a fifth-round pick of the Rams on 2013, has also spent time with the Giants during his three-year NFL career.
