Minor NFL Transactions: 6/28/16

Today’s minor moves:

  • The Seahawks signed rookie long snapper Nolan Frese on Tuesday and released linebacker Khairi Fortt, as PFT’s Zac Jackson writes. They also waived receiver Jeff Fuller from injured reserve, making him a free agent, tweets the Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta. Frese tried out for the Seahawks on Monday and he’s now expected to vie with Drew Ferris for the team’s long-snapping job. Fortt, who has bounced around on different practice squads in recent years, appeared in three games for the Jaguars in 2014. Fuller, undrafted from Texas A&M in 2012, signed with the Seahawks in February. He previously spent time on the Dolphins’ practice squad and in the Canadian Football League.

Minor NFL Transactions: 2/11/16

Here are Thursday’s minor signings, cuts, and other moves from across the NFL:

  • The Seahawks also signed running back Cameron Marshall, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times tweets. An Arizona State product, Marshall played the past two seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League. The 24-year-old runner gained 992 yards from scrimmage and scored five touchdowns in 18 CFL contests last season. He initially spent time with the Dolphins in 2013 before debuting in Canada a year later.

Earlier updates:

  • The Lions have signed veteran linebacker Jerry Franklin, the team announced today. Franklin, who played his college ball at Arkansas, has spent time on the regular season rosters for the Bears, Chiefs, and Saints since 2012.
  • The Panthers have signed former CFL punter Swayze Waters to a one-year deal, the club announced in a press release. Waters, who missed most of the 2015 season due a hip injury, handled punting and kicking duties for the Toronto Argonauts, earning special teams player of the year honors in 2014.
  • Another CFL player, wide receiver Jeff Fuller, has a deal in place to join the Seahawks, according to Scott Mitchell of the Calgary Sun (Twitter link). In 13 games last season for the Calgary Stampeders, Fuller grabbed 47 balls for 619 yards and three touchdowns.
