Friday’s minor moves:
- The Broncos have claimed defensive lineman Jimmy Bean off waivers from the Raiders and cut cornerback Dontrell Nelson, per Mike Klis of 9News (Twitter link). The Raiders waived Bean, a 2016 undrafted free agent, on Wednesday. Nelson’s an undrafted rookie from Memphis who had been with the Broncos since May.
- In a series of transactions, the Cowboys have waived/injured linebacker John Lotulelei and wide receiver Corey Washington, paving the way for the signings of LB Lamar Louis and WR Karel Hamilton. The most experienced member of the foursome is Lotulelei, who played parts of the 2013 and ’15 seasons with the Seahawks and Jaguars and combined for 16 appearances over those two years. He signed with the Cowboys earlier this year, as did Washington, who only joined the team 10 days ago. Washington’s lone action came as a member of the Giants in 2014, with whom he caught five passes in 14 games. Louis went undrafted out of LSU last year and played one game with the Cardinals as a rookie. The Ravens waived him from injured reserve last Sunday, the same day the Bengals parted with Hamilton. The undrafted rookie from Samford spent three-plus months with the Cincinnati organization.
- The Texans have waived/injured linebacker Dayon Pratt, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle tweets. Pratt, who’s dealing with a foot issue, signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent from East Carolina in May.
