Minor NFL Transactions: 5/11/19

Today’s minor moves will be posted here:

Atlanta Falcons

  • Signed: RB Tony Brooks-James (Oregon)
  • Waived/injured: RB Jeremy Langford

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Signed: S Josh Moon (Georgia Southern), OL Jordan Agasiva (Utah)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Signed: WR Spencer Schnell (Illinois State), DE David Kenney, OL Riley Mayfield (North Texas)

With the exception of Kenney, all players signed were undrafted rookies who were inked to deals after participating in their respective teams’ rookie minicamps. Mike Garafolo of NFL Network tweeted a cool story about Schnell, who’s late father Dave briefly played for the Bills. Greg Auman of The Athletic tweets that Schnell was impressive during minicamp, and that he’ll “get a look” returning kicks in addition to his receiving work.

Langford initially looked promising after entering the league as a fourth round pick of the Bears back in 2015. He opened the 2016 season as Chicago’s starting running back, but he’s struggled with injuries and turned into a journeyman ever since. Drafted only a few years ago, the Falcons were already the fifth stop of his career. He only appeared in one game for the Falcons last year, rushing nine times for 25 yards.
