Here are today’s minor transactions from around the NFL, with the latest moves added to the top of the list throughout the day:
- Quarterback Kory Faulkner, waived Tuesday by the 49ers, cleared waivers and is now free to sign with any team, tweets Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. Guard Fou Fonoti cleared waivers as well and now reverts to SF’s injured reserve.
- The Browns have signed offensive lineman Ryan Lee, the team announced today (via Twitter). By our count, Cleveland had three openings on its roster, so the club won’t need to waive anyone.
- Wide receiver Gerrard Sheppard, who spent most of last season the Ravens’ practice squad, was claimed off waivers by the Packers today after being cut by Baltimore, tweets Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. Green Bay had an open spot on its 90-man roster, so no corresponding move is necessary.
- In order to make room for McDonough, whose signing is noted below, the Redskins have waived-injured former Hampton cornerback Courtney Bridget, Jay Gruden confirmed today (Twitter link via Zac Boyer of the Washington Times).
- Defensive linemen Cody Larsen and Will Pericak have signed with the Broncos, the team announced today (link via the Denver Post). Both players’ NFL experience is limited to preseason action and time spent on practice squads. The moves increase Denver’s roster count to 89, leaving one additional opening.
- With a couple defensive backs banged up in camp, the Buccaneers have added some depth by signing cornerback Kip Edwards, who went undrafted in 2013 and has spent time with the Browns, Bills, and Vikings (Twitter link via Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com). The club used the spot vacated by recently released guard Carl Nicks to fit Edwards onto the 90-man roster.
- The Redskins have signed defensive tackle Jake McDonough, tweets Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. So far, the move has been confirmed by McDonough’s agent, but not the team — when it becomes official, Washington should have to cut a player to make room.
The Ravens have signed guard Will Rackley, fullback Shaun Chapas and tight end Phillip Supernaw, reports Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun. The team also cut tight end Matt Furstenburg, linebacker D.J. Bryant and offensive-defensive lineman Cody Larsen.
Rackley, a third-round pick by the Jaguars in 2011, has started 25 career games, including 11 last season. He’s also missed 22 games due to injury. The 22-year-old was released by the Jaguars last week.
Chapas was drafted by the Cowboys in the seventh-round of the 2011 Draft. Chapas made a handful of starts for Dallas that season before being cut prior the 2012 season. The 26-year-old spent 2012 with the Lions before spending last season on the Jaguars’ practice squad. He was also cut by the Jaguars last week.
Supernaw spent three years with the Texans where he played under current Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. He appeared in one game last season.
The Ravens cut Bryant with a failed physical designation, tweets Wilson. He spent 2013 on the injured reserve with a torn ACL. Furstenburg and Larsen spent last season on the team’s practice squad.
