Here are today’s minor moves:
- Waived from IR with injury settlement: CB Jordan Swann
- Reverted to IR: WR Tyrie Cleveland, DT Noah Elliss, CB Zech McPhearson
- Placed on reserve/retired list: LB Myles Jack (story)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- Waived: S A.J. Moore
- Signed: DT Isaiah Mack, P Michael Palardy
- Released: K Michael Badgley (story)
- Waived: WR Jalen Sample
It appears that, like Colby Wadman before him, Palardy is just a camp body. Incumbent punter Tress Way is dealing with a back ailment, and he will only work as the holder in the Commanders’ preseason contest against the Ravens tomorrow night (Twitter link via Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post). So Palardy, who has appeared in 80 games in his career (including eight with the Patriots in 2022), will have a chance to audition for other clubs that may be on the lookout for a punter at some point.
Washington is also in need of another player to rotate in on the defensive line, as Jonathan Allen (plantar fasciitis) and Phidarian Mathis are both banged up (Twitter link via ESPN’s John Keim). Mack, who has 25 appearances in his pro career, will at least help the team get through camp and the rest of the preseason slate.
