Minor NFL Transactions: 8/23/15

The latest minor moves from around the NFL:

  • Former USC wideout George Farmer will sign with the Seahawks, and the team intends on converting the receiver to defensive back, the organization announced. Farmer was cut by the Cowboys last week, and Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com says Dallas won’t be obligated to the $5oK in guaranteed money if he ends up sticking in Seattle.
  • To make room, the team waived/injured Kona Schwenke, who suffered a knee injury on Friday evening.
  • Receiver Michael Preston tweeted that he has been cut by the Dolphins (as passed along by Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald on Twitter). The reporter notes that Matt Hazel‘s four-catch, 47-yard performance in last night’s game may have made Preston expendable.
  • The Lions filled two open roster spots by signing former Central Michigan linebacker Justin Cherrocci and former Bethune Cookman defensive end Erik Williams, per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press (Twitter link). Detroit had two vacant slots after releasing Taylor Mays and Jarred Haggins yesterday.
