Monday’s minor moves:
- The Patriots have cut defensive lineman Anthony Johnson, according to Rand Getlin (on Twitter). The former Dolphin and Redskin has shuffled in and out of the New England organization since signing with the club in May. Johnson took part in four of the Patriots’ first seven games and made one start.
- The Chargers will re-sign cornerback Pierre Desir, tweets Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune. The club waived Desir on Saturday.
- The Packers have promoted receiver Geronimo Allison and cornerback Jermaine Whitehead from their practice squad, per Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. They’ll take the places of wideout Jared Abbrederis and corner Chris Banjo, both of whom landed on injured reserve Monday.
