Friday’s minor moves from around the NFL:
- The Jets have waived linebacker Randell Johnson, whom they originally signed off the Rams’ practice squad last December. Johnson only played one game last year, which came with the Jets, after appearing in 10 and starting one as a Bill in 2015. In 16 games dating back to 2014, Johnson’s first year, he has just one tackle.
- The Chiefs have signed cornerback Keith Baxter and waived a pair of defenders, tackle T.J. Barnes and safety Damariay Drew, tweets Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star. Barnes is the only one of three with NFL experience, having appeared in 21 games (one start) since debuting in 2014. Last season was the only year in Kansas City for Barnes, and the former Jet and Bill saw action in five games. Baxter went undrafted out of Marshall last year and spent some time with the Vikings and Packers as a rookie. Drew, undrafted from Cal this year, lasted just over a week with the Chiefs, who signed him June 1.
- The Texans have added center Erik Austell and waived guard Jake Simonich. Both players went undrafted this year, with Austell coming from Charleston Southern and Simonich out of Utah State.
- The 49ers have inked offensive lineman Andrew Lauderdale to a deal and cut safety Malik Golden. Lauderdale, undrafted out of New Hampshire, had a brief stint with the Saints earlier this spring. Golden, another UDFA (from Penn State), joined the 49ers on May 4.
