Minor Moves: Falcons, Seahawks, Saints

Earlier today, our own Luke Adams ran down the teams around the league with open roster spots. Already, there are some updates to be made. Here’s are the latest moves from around the NFL..

  • The Falcons announced that they have waived wide receiver Dominique Croom, who spent part of last season on the practice squad. Croom, 6’0″, 190 pounds, was originally signed by the Browns as a college free agent following the 2013 NFL Draft and was signed to Atlanta’s practice squad on November 27, 2013. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (on Twitter) says he was released with a non-football illness designation. The Falcons now have three open roster spots.
  • Seahawks waived defensive tackle Andru Pulu, per the NFL transaction notice, tweets Brian McIntyre. Pulu received a $15k signing bonus as an undrafted free agent earlier this offseason. Seattle now has one vacant spot on the roster.
  • Saints cornerback A.J. Davis has been reverted to the injured reserve after going unclaimed after being waived-injured, Wilson tweets.

Minor Moves: Waivers, Ravens, Saints

Even as the NFL enters something of a quiet period before training camps begin, teams will continue to manipulate their rosters, mostly through low-key transactions involving lesser-known players. We’ll keep track of the latest minor moves here, with the latest updates being added to the top of the list.

  • The following players have cleared waivers, making them free agents (Twitter links via Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post): cornerback Avery Patterson, safety Dexter Moody, quarterback Jerrod Johnson, tight end Fendi Onobun, tight end Terrence Miller, and running back Johnathan Franklin. Franklin is expected to retire following a neck injury.
  • In a full article, Wilson adds that Ravens rookie linebacker Xavius Boyd has reverted back to the team’s injured reserve after clearing waivers following a failed physical designation.
  • The Saints have signed linebacker Todd Davis, who went undrafted out of Sacramento State in 2013, the team announced in a press release. We had heard this afternoon that a union between the two parties was likely. In a corresponding move, the team waived cornerback A.J. Davis (no relation) with a failed physical designation.
