Sunday NFL Transactions: NFC South

Listed below are the Sunday roster moves for the four NFC South teams. Following the 53-man roster cutdown deadline yesterday, many teams will make slight tweaks to their rosters, claiming players off waivers or signing guys who clear waivers. Those transactions for the Falcons, Panthers, Saints, and Buccaneers are noted below.

Additionally, as of 12:00pm CT today, teams can begin constructing their 10-man practice squads. You can check out our glossary entry on practice squads to brush up on those changes, as well as all the other guidelines that govern the 10-man units, whose players practice with the team but aren’t eligible to suit up on Sundays.

Here are Sunday’s NFC South transactions, which will continue to be updated throughout the day:

Panthers Place Matt Kalil On Injured Reserve

The Panthers have placed left tackle Matt Kalil on injured reserve, the club announced today. Carolina has signed cornerback Lorenzo Doss in a corresponding move.

Kalil recently underwent a knee scope, and the issue is concerning enough that he’ll miss at least the first eight games of the season. However, the Panthers are hopeful Kalil can return later this year. Kalil, 29, has been durable for most of his NFL tenure: while he missed 14 games with a hip injury in 2016, he’s played in all 16 games in every other season of his career.

With Kalil sidelined, Carolina will turn to 2017 second-round pick Taylor Moton to handle left tackle.

Broncos Waive CB Lorenzo Doss

Lorenzo Doss‘ three-season tenure with the Broncos ended on Thanksgiving Day after the team made the decision to waive the cornerback. But they look to have done so because of something that happened this morning.

The Broncos cut Doss because he was late for a meeting on Thanksgiving morning, Mike Klis of 9News reports.

The Broncos’ roster stands at 52 players, and Vance Joseph said (via Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post) the team probably wouldn’t fill Doss’ spot until after Sunday’s game against the Raiders.

Drafted in the fifth round before the Broncos’ Super Bowl title season, Doss played sparingly but could not carve out much of a role in Denver’s deep cornerback contingent. Chris Harris, Aqib Talib and Bradley Roby made opportunities scarce for Kayvon Webster from 2014-16, and Webster played ahead of Doss on Denver’s depth chart. This season, Doss played only eight defensive snaps and was active in only three games after Webster’s departure.

This move leaves the Broncos with just four cornerbacks on the 53-man roster. But Denver has used backup safety Will Parks as a dime performer over Doss this season. The Broncos also invested a third-round pick in Brendan Langley in April.

Draft Signings: Browns, Bills, Titans

Here at PFR, we’re dedicating full posts to each player from rounds 1 and 2 that signs on with their respective teams. All of the other players, from rounds 3-7, are rounded up into posts such as these. The latest signings from rounds 1 and 2..

  • The Browns announced that they have signed defensive back Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, a seventh round choice. The Browns have now agreed to deals with over half of their class, with seven of 12 players in the fold. That group includes second-round linebacker Nate Orchard and first-round defensive tackle Danny Shelton, but does not yet include the club’s other first-rounder, Cameron Erving.
  • The Bills signed third-round guard John Miller and fifth-round running back Karlos Williams, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo news tweets. The Bills now have four draft picks signed and two to go.
  • The Titans (on Twitter) announced that they have agreed to terms on deals with fourth-round fullback Jalston Fowler and fifth-round running back David Cobb. Fowler, an Alabama product, played in 53 games during his collegiate career. He recorded 113 carries for 738 yards and five touchdowns.
  • The Broncos announced (on Twitter) that they have signed fifth-round pick Lorenzo Doss. The cornerback had three interceptions for Tulane in 2014. If both players make the roster, Doss will join former Tulane teammate Taurean Doss in the secondary. Denver tapped Nixon in the seventh round.
