Today’s minor moves:
- Designated for return from IR: CB Christian Braswell
New England Patriots
- Claimed off waivers (from Eagles): LB Christian Elliss
- Promoted: QB Malik Cunningham, RB Kevin Harris
- Promoted: LB Kyron Johnson
Elliss was waived by the Eagles yesterday following the team’s signing of Shaquille Leonard. The linebacker spent the better part of the past three seasons in Philadelphia, getting into 19 total games. He appeared in a career-high 12 games this season, collecting 21 tackles while appearing in about 15 percent of his team’s defensive snaps. Elliss also had a significant role on special teams.
Since the Patriots play tonight, the move will be deferred to tomorrow, per ESPN’s Field Yates.
