Mike Tyson

More Minor NFL Transactions: 5/13/19

Here’s the latest round of minor moves from around the NFL (for this morning’s minor moves, click here):

Carolina Panthers

Detroit Lions

Green Bay Packers

  • Claimed off waivers: DB Mike Tyson (from Texans)

New England Patriots

New York Giants

Pittsburgh Steelers

New Orleans Saints

Seattle Seahawks

Tennessee Titans

Washington Redskins

Minor NFL Transactions: 5/10/19

We’ve got a whole bunch of minor transactions from today as we head into the weekend:

Arizona Cardinals

  • Signed: RB Wes Hills, CB Nate Brooks
  • Released: WR Bryant Mitchell, CB Jonathan Moxey, RB Brandon Wilds

Houston Texans

New Orleans Saints

  • Waived: RB Martez Carter, LB Chase Hansen, TE Jake Powell

Philadelphia Eagles

  • Signed: CB Jay Liggins

Seattle Seahawks

Oakland Raiders

  • Signed: WR Brian Burt

Orchard, the former second round pick of the Browns, is probably the biggest name on this list. He was cut to make room for Ziggy Ansah, who the Seahawks officially announced today. Orchard had signed a one-year pact last month that didn’t contain any guaranteed money. It’s a pretty bad sign for his NFL future that he was apparently at the very bottom of the 90-man roster in Seattle.

 

 

 

Texans To Promote Mike Tyson

The Texans are elevating defensive back and special teamer Mike Tyson from the practice squad to the 53-man roster, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. Tyson, a sixth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2017, may have an opportunity to make his NFL debut against the Bills on Sunday.

Tyson, a Cincinnati product, registered five interceptions as a senior. The Seahawks selected him in the sixth-round of the 2017 draft, but he has yet to see time in a regular season game. This year, he missed Seattle’s final cut, but the Texans moved quickly to add him to the taxi squad.

The Texans will be without cornerbacks Kevin Johnson and Aaron Colvin for a while, leaving them a bit thin in the secondary. Tyson figures to serve as the club’s fifth safety, though his quickest path to the field will likely be on special teams.

Seahawks Place Kam Chancellor On IR

Kam Chancellor‘s season is officially over. The Seahawks made the inevitable decision to place the safety on injured reserve on Saturday.

The Pro Bowl safety had been out since last month because of a neck injury, and he won’t have a chance to return for his team until the 2018 season. Being shorthanded at other positions prompted the move.

Seattle promoted defensive back Mike Tyson and linebacker Kache Palacio from its practice squad and waived offensive lineman Mark Glowinski.

The Seahawks could be without both Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright on Sunday, depriving the highly regarded defense of several household names in total.

A rookie, Tyson played safety while at Cincinnati but was relocated to corner early in his NFL tenure. He’s spent the season on the Seahawks’ practice squad. The Seahawks added Palacio, a second-year linebacker, to their practice squad in November.

Glowinski has gone from 16-game starter in 2016 to swing player. He played in 10 games this season, starting two prior to second-round pick Ethan Pocic usurping him on the right guard depth chart. He’ll venture onto waivers.

Sunday NFL Transactions: NFC West

Listed below are the Sunday roster moves for the four NFC West 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 Cardinals, Rams, 49ers, and Seahawks 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 West transactions, which will continue to be updated throughout the day:

Arizona Cardinals

Los Angeles Rams

San Francisco 49ers

Seattle Seahawks

Seahawks Now At 53

The Seahawks made some moves to get down to 53, including the release of last year’s backup quarterback. Here’s the full rundown:

Waived:

Waived/Injured:

Released:

Boykin has lost the backup QB job to Austin Davis and that’s not a huge surprise after Davis’ performance in the preseason. Coach Pete Carroll indicated recently that he would have liked to keep three signal callers, but it just wasn’t realistic.

“It’s a good idea if you can do it,” Carroll said. “They’re so important. It just depends on the rest of the roster.”

NFL Draft Pick Signings: 5/16/17

Today’s draft pick signings:

  • The Titans have signed third-round tight end Jonnu Smith, the club announced today. Tennessee has now signed five of its nine-man draft class. Heading into the draft, Smith was often compared to the tight end he’ll now be playing behind with the Titans, veteran Delanie Walker. Smith, who should earn roughly $3.1MM over the life of his four-year rookie deal, has a clear path to playing time in Tennessee, as the only other tight ends on the roster aside from Walker are Jace Amaro and Phillip Supernaw.
  • The Jets announced that they’ve signed fourth-round wide receiver Chad Hansen. A Cal product, Hansen is now the fourth Jets rookie to ink a contract. After posting more than 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns during his junior campaign, Hansen joins a wide open Gang Green depth chart at wideout. With Eric Decker coming off injury and still a release candidate, and Robby Anderson facing legal trouble, Hansen could contribute early in his rookie season.
  • The Jaguars have agreed to terms with fifth-round linebacker Blair Brown, the club announced today. While Jacksonville already boasts three starting linebackers in Myles Jack, Paul Posluszny, and Telvin Smith, the latter two are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents next spring. Brown, then, gives the Jaguars insurance at the position, and will likely serve as a high-end reserve in 2017. Heading into the draft, Lance Zierlein of NFL.com praised Brown’s “short area burst” and ability to “drop into space.”
  • The Dolphins announced that they’ve signed fifth-round defensive tackle Davon Godchaux. Miami was known to be searching for a rotational tackle to play behind Ndamukong Suh and Jordan Phillips, and Goxchaux now figures to play that role. Godchaux, an LSU product, is the sixth member of the Dolphins’ draft class to get under contract — only first-rounder Charles Harris remains unsigned.
  • The Seahawks have signed sixth-round defensive back Mike Tyson, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle (Twitter link). Tyson, a Cincinnati product, is expected to be used as a cornerback in Seattle after playing safety at the collegiate level.
