Dolphins Cut Brady Quinn, Seven Others

Placed on injured reserve:

3:11pm: The Dolphins must officially remove 11 players from their active roster today, and while the team has yet to announce those moves, a pair of cuts have been reported so far. Veteran quarterback Brady Quinn passed along word of his own release, tweeting that his time with the team was “short-lived,” but that he “enjoyed every second.” Besides Quinn, wide receiver Armon Binns will also be one of Miami’s roster casualties, tweets Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Quinn, who spent time in 2013 with the Seahawks, Jets and Rams, didn’t see any action during the regular season, and didn’t join a new team this year until about two weeks ago, when he signed with Miami. Viewed as a stopgap signing for a team in need of healthy camp arms, Quinn was never a threat to unseat backup signal-caller Matt Moore, let alone starter Ryan Tannehill. Perhaps now if the team has injuries problems in the regular season though, Quinn will get a look.

As for Binns, his best NFL season came in 2012, when he caught 24 total balls during his time with the Bengals and Dolphins. After missing the 2013 campaign, he didn’t appear to be in Miami’s plans for 2014.

Dolphins To Sign Jake Rogers

Monday, 11:17am: In addition to confirming the signing of Rogers, the Dolphins announced (via Twitter) that they had added defensive tackle Cory Grissom.

Sunday, 6:32pm: The Dolphins are planning to sign kicker Jake Rogers, formerly of the Redskins, according to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports 1 (via Twitter). The team is in need of kicking help after the recent injuries to Caleb Sturgis and John Potter.

Sturgis, the team’s projected starter, has struggled with a groin injury that will keep him out of practice for the time being. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, out of the University of Florida.

As we learned when the Redskins signed Rogers earlier this offseason, he has yet to attempt a kick in an NFL game. He has competed for spots on multiple NFL teams, since signing with the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2011.

Rogers is the University of Cincinnati’s all-time leading scorer.

Chiefs Sign Three Players, Cut Two

The Chiefs have made a handful of roster moves on the defensive side of the ball, officially signing three defensive linemen and waiving a defensive tackle and linebacker. The team announced today (via Twitter) that it has signed former Ram Jermelle Cudjo and undrafted free agent Kona Schwenke, along with Kyle Love, whose agreement was previously reported. Meanwhile, Cory Grissom and Ridge Wilson have been cut (Twitter link).

Love, a former starter in New England, is the most notable name among Kansas City’s new additions, though Cudjo also has a few starts under his belt from his time in St. Louis. Cudjo saw part-time action over the last four years as a reserve on the Rams’ defensive line before he was released last week, while Love started 25 games in three seasons for the Patriots before spending time with the Jaguars and Chiefs in 2013.

As for the cuts, both Grissom and Wilson were signed by the Chiefs following the season — Wilson came from the club’s practice squad, while Grissom spent last season on injured reserve with the Patriots.

Chiefs Sign Cory Grissom

The Chiefs have signed Cory Grissom, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (Twitter links). Wilson reports that it’s a one-year contract for the defensive tackle.

Grissom, 23, signed last spring with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of South Florida. He was placed on injured reserve in August, however, and didn’t see the field for the team during the 2013 season, before being waived last week.

Patriots Cut T.J. Moe, Six Others

4:21pm: In addition to the four earlier cuts, the Pats have also parted ways with running back Quentin Hines, and offensive linemen Elvis Fisher and Brice Schwab, according to Field Yates of (Twitter link).

4:00pm: The Pats have officially waived Moe, along with three other players, according to the team. Defensive lineman Cory Grissom, running back Sam McGuffie, and linebacker Taylor Reed have also been cut.

11:55am: The Patriots will waive wide receiver T.J. Moe later today, tweets agent Matt Brei (hat tip to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun). Brei expressed disappointment about the impending move, due to the work his client has put in to recover from a torn Achilles.

Moe was signed last April by the Pats after he went undrafted out of Missouri. However, the wideout suffered that Achilles tear in May, sidelining him for the 2014 season.
