Dan Arnold

Cardinals Place DL Jonathan Bullard On IR

Jonathan Bullard‘s contract year will end with him on IR. The Cardinals placed the fourth-year defensive lineman on their season-ending injured list Thursday, doing so in order to claim tight end Dan Arnold.

A former Bears third-round pick, Bullard is battling a hamstring injury. The Saints waived Arnold on Wednesday, doing so in order to claim Manti Te’o.

The Bears waived Bullard after the preseason, and the Cardinals made him one of their five day-after claims. He has operated as a part-time starter with Arizona, being a first-stringer for six games and playing in 36% of the Cards’ defensive snaps. The Florida alum made 1.5 sacks and 22 tackles this season, including a half-sack against the Rams on Sunday.

Arnold joins Maxx Williams and Charles Clay among Arizona’s tight end contingent. A UDFA out of Division III Wisconsin-Platteville, Arnold has played in 12 career games. His more prominent role came as a rookie, when he caught 12 passes for 150 yards and a touchdown with New Orleans.

Minor NFL Transactions: 6/5/17

Here are today’s minor moves.

  • The Patriots signed cornerback William Likely and waived defensive end Corey Vereen with an injury designation. A 5-foot-7, 175-pound player, Likely could factor into New England’s return-men competition, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com tweets. The rookie UDFA played four years at Maryland and notched six interceptions as a sophomore in 2014.
  • Former Minnesota Golden Gophers linebacker Jack Lynn signed with the Falcons, who waived fullback Soma Vainuku to make room, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. He’s a UDFA rookie. Vanaiku’s ouster should pit Derrick Coleman and rookie Tyler Renew against one another at fullback, per McClure.
  • The Broncos waived rookie UDFA tackle Erik Austell, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post tweets. A Charleston Southern product, Austell was one of the 13 UDFAs the Broncos signed coming out of draft weekend.
  • The Chiefs added former Texans wideout Tevin Jones, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle tweets. Jones entered the league as a UDFA out of Memphis last year. He hasn’t seen any game action. The Texans signed Jones to a reserve/futures deal in January but cut him last month.
  • The Saints signed wide receiver Dan Arnold and cut defensive end Drew Iddings, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports (on Twitter). Arnold comes to New Orleans from Division III Wisconsin-Platteville. Iddings spent time in camp with the Raiders last year and was with both the Panthers and Saints this spring.
  • Swapping out interior offensive linemen, the Titans signed center Marc Spelman and waived center/guard Karim Barton. The latter has bounced around for a few years, being signed to reserve/futures deals by the Browns (2015), Texans (’16) and Titans (’17). The 25-year-old has never played in a game. Spelman comes out of Illinois State. He went to the Bears’ rookie minicamp last month.
