Sunday NFL Transactions: NFC West

Listed below are the Sunday roster moves for the four NFC West teams. Following the 53-man roster cutdown deadline yesterday, many teams will make slight tweaks to their rosters, claiming players off waivers or signing guys who clear waivers. Those transactions for the Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks and 49ers are noted below.

Additionally, teams can begin constructing their 10-man practice squads today. You can check out our glossary entry on practice squads to brush up on those changes, as well as all the other guidelines that govern the 10-man units, whose players practice with the team but aren’t eligible to suit up on Sundays.

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

Arizona Cardinals

Los Angeles Rams

San Francisco 49ers

Seattle Seahawks

Cardinals’ Johnson, Palmer Done For Season

The Cardinals were hoping to get at least one of David Johnson or Carson Palmer back before the end of the season. On Wednesday, coach Bruce Arians announced that a return to action is unlikely for both players. In fact, no one on Arizona’s IR has progressed all that much in rehab, Arians says, and that group includes rookie running back T.J. Logan."<strong

At 4-6, the Cardinals’ odds of making the playoffs are not all that strong, but it will be even tougher to sneak in without two of their most important offensive players. The odds calculator at Football Outsiders gives the Cardinals just a 0.4% chance of reaching the postseason.

Johnson was among the league’s best offensive players last year with more than 2,100 yards from scrimmage and 20 touchdowns. The Cardinals swung a surprising trade for Adrian Peterson before the deadline, but the veteran has not been able to replicate his production.

Recently, Palmer expressed optimism that he could return at the very end of the season.

I could potentially be available the last two weeks of the season,” Palmer said earlier this month. “Who knows? I don’t know where I’ll be (with rehab) at that point. I don’t know where we will be as a team at that point. I just try to be as ready as I can as quick as I can.”

The 37-year-old (38 in December) will probably weigh retirement this offseason. If he does decide to play, there is a contract in place for 2018.

Cardinals Sign P Andy Lee

The Cardinals announced that they have signed punter Andy Lee to a two-year deal. Naturally, punter Matt Wile has been released to make room. Andy Lee

Arizona expressed interest in Lee last week when he was being shopped by the Panthers. The Cardinals were unwilling to take on his old contract and give up draft considerations for him, but they were happy to snag him as a free agent.

The Cardinals’ 14.7 points of lost field position was second only to the Jets last year, per Football Outsiders. The 35-year-old Lee might be able to help in that regard if he can stay healthy. He was limited to nine games last year, but his net average of 40.4 yards per punt would have ranked 14th among all punters if he saw enough action to qualify.

In related moves, the Cardinals placed running back T.J. Logan on IR and added outside linebackers Bryson Albright and Obum Gwacham to the practice squad.

Cardinals RB T.J. Logan IR-Bound

Cardinals running back T.J. Logan may not see a chance to factor into his first NFL season. The rookie suffered a dislocated wrist during Thursday’s NFL preseason opener.

Logan will miss approximately 12 weeks, per Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com, and Bruce Arians said he will be placed on IR. The fifth-round pick out of North Carolina will require surgery. Arians said the tentative plan would be to bring back Urban from IR around Week 8.

The NFL again adjusted its IR policy this offseason. Teams can now bring two players off the injured list as opposed to one. This increases Logan’s chances of making a midseason return and salvaging some of his first NFL season. That said, the Cardinals’ situation at running back and their other injury issues could have a large say in that.

Arizona re-signed Chris Johnson recently to play behind David Johnson, and the Cards shuttled Andre Ellington back to running back after a brief wide receiver experiment. The team also has Kerwynn Williams as a backup candidate. Logan was vying for a roster spot in this mix.

Cardinals Sign Three Draft Picks

The Cardinals announced that they’ve signed three 2017 draft picks: fifth-round offensive lineman Will Holden, fifth-round running back T.J. Logan, and seventh-round defensive back Rudy Ford.T.J. Logan (Vertical)

Holden, selected with the 157th overall pick, is now one of seven reserve offensive lineman on Arizona’s roster, so he could face an uphill battle to earn a spot on the squad despite his draft status. Logan, a North Carolina product, could see time as a kick returner during his rookie campaign and could even carve out a role on offense, as the Cards only have one other back — Kerwynn Williams — behind starter David Johnson. Arizona traded up in the seventh round to select Ford, whom the Cardinals are listing as a cornerback.

Arizona has now signed three of its seven-man draft class, and still needs to ink first-round linebacker Haason Reddick, second-round safety Budda Baker, third-round wide receiver Chad Williams, and fourth-round offensive lineman Dorian Johnson.
