Today’s minor moves in the NFL:
- Signed: WR Garett Maag
New England Patriots
- Waived: DT Justus Tavai
- Placed on reserve/retired list: S Devin McCourty (story)
- Waived: DT Forrest Merrill
- Reverted to IR after being waived: NT LaTrell Bumphus
Maag fills the open roster spot vacated by retired tight end Ben Ellefson yesterday. After four years at North Dakota, the local native returns home to the Minneapolis area after going undrafted in April. In 49 games for the Fighting Hawks, Maag caught 162 passes for 2,152 yards and 18 touchdowns. He’ll add some depth to a position group in Minnesota headlined by Justin Jefferson, K.J. Osborn, and first-round pick out of USC Jordan Addison.
