New England Patriots

The Texans could be looking for specialist help, as they worked out a pair of punters and a longsnapper. Boddy-Calhoun, who worked out for the Vikings, is probably the biggest name on this list. He started at least seven games for the Browns each of the past three seasons, but was released by Houston at final cuts.

Minor NFL Transactions: 8/27/19

It was a busy day in the NFL as teams made early cuts in advance of the 53-man deadline. We’ll keep track of today’s minor moves here:

Patriots To Re-Sign OL Brian Schwenke

Brian Schwenke will rejoin the Patriots after a brief stay as a free agent. The Pats re-signed the veteran interior offensive lineman, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com tweets.

Schwenke will take the roster spot of wide receiver Amara Darboh, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com reports (via Twitter). The Patriots claimed Darboh off waivers from the Seahawks, but the 2017 third-round pick will be waived two days later with an injury designation. He’ll revert to New England’s IR if unclaimed on waivers this time around.

Darboh will undergo an unspecified surgery on Tuesday, Garafolo adds. This will again deplete the Patriots’ depth at wideout. Only Chris Hogan, Coradarrelle Patterson, Phillip Dorsett and the recently claimed Chad Hansen reside as healthy Pats receivers at this point.

New England made Schwenke one of its weekend cuts but will reinstall him as an interior-line backup. He joins LaAdrian Waddle and Ted Karras as a second-string lineman.

A five-year Titans cog, Schwenke initially caught on with the Patriots when he signed in late July. While his roster spot is obviously not secure, Schwenke stands to slot in behind David Andrews and guards Joe Thuney and Shaq Mason.

Since beginning his career as a starter, the 27-year-old blocker’s been a backup for the past two seasons. Injuries essentially brought an end to his starting days, with the former 2013 fourth-round pick missing 23 games over his first three seasons. But he suited up for 16 Titans regular-season games in each of the past two years.

Sunday NFL Transactions: AFC East

Listed below are the Sunday roster moves for the four AFC East teams. Following the 53-man roster cutdown deadline yesterday, many teams will make slight tweaks to their rosters, claiming players off waivers or signing guys who clear waivers. Those transactions for the Bills, Dolphins, Patriots, and Jets are noted below.

Additionally, as of 12:00pm CT today, teams can begin constructing their 10-man practice squads. You can check out our glossary entry on practice squads to brush up on those changes, as well as all the other guidelines that govern the 10-man units, whose players practice with the team but aren’t eligible to suit up on Sundays.

Here are Sunday’s AFC East transactions, which will continue to be updated throughout the day:

Patriots Claim Two Wide Receivers

The Patriots’ wide receiver group just got more crowded. The Pats have claimed former Jet Chad Hansen and ex-Seahawk Amara Darboh, as Albert Breer of The MMQB tweets.

The Patriots thinned the herd in recent weeks by dropping Kenny Britt and Malcolm Mitchell from the roster (Eric Decker’s retirement also took away one potential option, though he was probably a longshot to make the team). Now, Hansen and Darboh will help to fill in for Julian Edelman during his four-game ban.

Currently, the Pats project to carry Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, Cordarrelle Patterson, Matt Slater, and the two newbies on their Week 1 roster. Miami speedster Braxton Berrios was also in the mix for a spot, but the team’s decision to place him on IR has taken him out of the equation.
