Rashod Berry

Jaguars Waive K Matthew Wright, Claim OL Wes Martin

A day after the Giants cut Wes Martin, the fourth-year guard is on his way to a third team in three years. The Jaguars added the former Washington draftee via waiver claim Wednesday.

Jacksonville also waived Matthew Wright, who served as the team’s primary kicker last season. Wright, who came to the Jaguars after spending part of the 2020 season with the Steelers, put together a solid season in Jacksonville and could well generate interest elsewhere.

Wright made 21 of 24 field goal attempts last season, his first run as a full-time kicker. This included a 4-for-6 success rate from 50-plus yards — including two in the team’s London win over the Dolphins. The Central Florida product made a 56-yard try. Jacksonville did not draft a kicker but did add one as a UDFA (Andrew Mevis). The team also has Ryan Santoso rostered. Santoso kicked in four games with the Panthers and Lions last season, being cut after one Panthers game before resurfacing with the NFC North franchise.

Martin joins the Jags after two years in Washington and one in New York. A former fourth-round pick out of Indiana, Martin made 10 starts with Washington from 2019-20 but just one for a Giants team that ran into early-season trouble on its interior offensive line. The Giants signed Martin off Washington’s practice squad in late September. One season remains on Martin’s rookie contract.

The Jags also claimed edge defender Rashod Berry off waivers from the Lions. A former UDFA out of Ohio State, Berry has played in eight NFL games in two seasons.

Wednesday NFL Transactions: NFC North

Following the 53-man roster cutdown deadline Tuesday, many teams will make slight tweaks to their rosters. In addition to waiver claims, teams can begin constructing their 16-man practice squads today. These BearsLionsPackers and Vikings moves are noted below.

Here are Wednesday’s NFC North transactions, which will continue to be updated throughout the day.

Lions Down To 53

The Lions have their 53-man roster in place. On Tuesday, the Lions officially cut:

Released

Waived

Placed on Reserve/Suspended

The Lions will carry three quarterbacks for now in Jard Goff, Tim Boyle, and David Blough. Boyle is currently dealing with an injured thumb, which will keep him sidelined for two months. But, in order to hang on to him and dress him ASAP, they’ll have to carry him on their initial 53-man roster. Fortunately, Goff has proven largely durable during his five-year career. He did not miss a start due to injury until late last season, when a thumb surgery sidelined him.
