NFL Practice Squad Updates: 9/7/19

Today’s practice squad moves:

Cleveland Browns

Indianapolis Colts

Seattle Seahawks

The big name here is Jones, who now has a new home after getting cut by the Chargers. The former Ohio State star was drafted by the Bills in the fourth-round back in 2016, then traded to Los Angeles after a year. He spent last season on the practice squad, then lost out to Easton Stick in the competition to be the Chargers’ third-string passer this summer. The Seahawks had room for a developmental quarterback after waiving Paxton Lynch.

Browns Add RB Eli McGuire

The Jets didn’t have a place for Elijah McGuire, but the Browns did. On Monday, the Browns filled out their taxi squad by signing the running back as well as tackle Paul Adams.

On Saturday, the Jets bumped McGuire and kept an RB group of Le’Veon BellTy MontgomeryBilal Powell, and Trenton Cannon. McGuire drew solid reviews in Jets practice over the last two years, but his career 3.3 yards per carry average isn’t much to write home about.

Here’s what the Browns’ filled out ten-man practice squad* looks like, as of this writing:

1. T Paul Adams

2. DT Brandin Bryant

3. TE Stephen Carlson

4. WR Shelton Gibson

5. LB Willie Harvey

6. S J.T. Hassell

7. CB Robert Jackson

8. RB Elijah McGuire

9. WR Derrick Willies

10. C Willie Wright

Giants Cut Kyle Lauletta; Reach 53

The Giants waived quarterback Kyle Lauletta as a part of their moves to reach the 53-man roster limit. The move leaves Alex Tanney as the No. 3 QB behind starter Eli Manning and first-round pick Daniel Jones.

Between an October arrest and a poor professional debut, Lauletta dug himself into a bit of a hole. Although the 2018 fourth-round pick is just 24 and had enough upside to merit a mid-round selection, the 31-year-old Tanney edged him out in practice. This, perhaps, isn’t a huge surprise after the G-Men signed him to a two-year, $2.1MM contract with $775K guaranteed.

Besides Lauletta, here’s how the Giants got to the limit.

Giants Sign 13 UDFAs

The Giants announced that they have signed the following undrafted free agents in advance of tomorrow’s rookie minicamp:

Cue the quarterback controversy, as Dungey could be coming for Daniel Jones‘ job. Well, probably not, but Dungey was in high demand after the draft was over, per Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk. Dungey had offers from about five clubs, but a telephone call between the former Orange signal-caller and New York head coach Pat Shurmur helped seal the deal. Dungey could theoretically stick as the third QB if Big Blue goes in that direction, and his athleticism will certainly help his case for a roster spot, as he could contribute on special teams and/or as a gadget player. Dungey passed for 9,340 yards with 58 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in his four seasons at Syracuse, but he also rushed for 1,993 yards and 35 touchdowns.

The Giants addressed their flagging pass rush to some degree in the draft by selecting Old Dominion defensive end Oshane Ximines in the third round, and they may have uncovered a gem in Harvey, a converted running back. Harvey had 14.5 sacks last year and was named the AAC’s Defensive Player of the Year.

As evidenced by the large amount of guaranteed money they’re giving him, the Giants think highly of Tauaefa, a tackling machine who is capable of making plays behind the line of scrimmage and who posted over 100 tackles in two of his three collegiate seasons. And after adding three DBs in the draft, Big Blue added three more via UDFA signings, further underscoring its commitment to improving its defensive backfield.
