Daryl Waud

Minor Moves: Tuesday

Here are Tuesday’s minor transactions from around the NFL, with any additional moves added to the top of the list throughout the evening:

  • The Colts announced a series of roster moves today, adding free agent cornerback Chance Casey and undrafted guard Will Corbin. In a corresponding transaction, the club waived-injured cornerback Joshua Mitchell, who will revert to IR if he clears waivers. Casey saw some regular season action over the last two years with the Raiders, and also spent time with the Niners.
  • Undrafted rookie free agent Zach D’Orazio signed with the Patriots today, a league source tells Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post. The former Akron wideout informed Cleveland broadcaster John Telich (Twitter link) yesterday that he’d be signing with New England.
  • The Browns have waived a pair of players who spent time on the team’s practice squad in 2014, according to a team release. Linebacker Keith Pough and defensive lineman Calvin Barnett were both cut, with Pough receiving an injury designation (hamstring).
  • Defensive lineman Daryl Waud, who signed with Washington last week following a tryout, has been waived with a left squad designation, the club announced today (Twitter link). Waud is expected to join the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts after clearing waivers.

Washington Adds QB, Three Others

Washington has signed quarterback Hutson Mason, defensive tackle Daryl Waud, linebacker Houston Bates, and linebacker Dasman McCullum, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post (on Twitter). All four were recent tryout players. As Jones notes (link), Washington had just one roster spot open as of Saturday afternoon, so multiple moves will have to be made. It remains to be seen who will get cut.

When former Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday abruptly decided to retire last week, the team was left without a fourth signal caller on the depth chart.┬áNow, Mason comes in as that extra arm behind Robert Griffin III, Colt McCoy, and Kirk Cousins. To say that it’d be a longshot for Mason to unseat one of those QBs would be an understatement, but the youngster could be setting himself up for a spot on Washington’s taxi squad. Mason, a Georgia product, is said to have a high football IQ but less-than-ideal arm strength.
