Minor Moves: Wednesday

We’re already tracking today’s practice squad signings and cuts in one post, but we’ll dedicate this space to following Wednesday’s minor moves relating to 53-man roster around the NFL. Here’s the latest:

  • After working him out earlier this week, the Raiders have signed linebacker Jamar Chaney, the team announced today in a press release. To make room on the roster for the incoming linebacker, Oakland placed linebacker Nick Roach on the injured reserve list. Roach suffered a concussion during the preseason and hasn’t been able to return to the field in the seven weeks since the injury.
  • As expected, the Seahawks have added some depth at center to provide some insurance for Max Unger, who sustained a foot injury on Monday. Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times tweets that offensive lineman Patrick Lewis is the newest addition to the roster, replacing cornerback Josh Thomas, who has been cut.

Earlier updates:

  • The Bears have filled the opening on their active roster by signing rookie safety Shamiel Gary to a one-year contract, the team announced today (via Twitter). Gary, who signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent and spent camp and the preseason with the team, worked out for Chicago multiple times in September.
  • As part of a series of roster moves, the Redskins signed cornerback Greg Ducre to their 53-man roster from off the Chargers’ practice squad, according to the club (via Twitter). The other moves announced by the team today were previously reported.
