Minor NFL Transactions: 8/28/16

The NFL has seen a flurry of transactions today, as clubs make cuts in preparation for Tuesday’s roster cutdown deadline. Let’s round up a few moves that weren’t announced earlier today:

  • The Bills announced that they’ve signed quarterback Austin Trainor, who participated in the team’s rookie minicamp in 2015. As Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports (Twitter links), backup Buffalo QB Cardale Jones is currently dealing with a personal issue, and though he’s expected to return soon, head coach Rex Ryan said Trainor will help the Bills get through Thurday’s preseason game if needed.
  • The Cowboys have waived/injured defensive end Shaneil Jenkins, the club announced. Jenkins, who was hurt in Dallas’ most recent preseason contest, will revert to the Cowboys’ IR if he clears waivers.
  • The Packers have waived receiver Ed Williams, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com (Twitter link).
  • The Broncos have waived wide receiver Nathan Palmer, Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post tweets.
