Ok I like that move. Barnes played at Maryland and he's someone I wanted us to target in round three when he came out. The Skins snagged him and I think he has the ability to become a good #2 but for now can provide depth.

Now everything I read on his says he was released so IDK how true the trade news is.

He was initially told he was being released, then he called beat reporters and said he was traded. Just shows that initial reports don't mean much until that final paperwork is sent to the league.

Nope, he was drafted in 2010

Eagles get down to 75 players
Posted by Josh Alper on August 27, 2012, 1:26 PM EDT

The Eagles got part of the way to the 75-man limit on Sunday and they took the final four st eps on Monday ahead of the 4 p.m. deadline.

They did it, in part, by moving a pair of veterans off the active roster, at least temporarily.Tackle Jason Peters was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list as a result of the Achilles injuries he suffered during the offseason. Peters will be eligible to start practicing and playing with the team after their sixth game this season, although there’s not much expectation that Peters will be doing anything but rehabbing this season.

Defensive tackle Mike Patterson was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list as a result of the brain surgery he had in January to repair an anteriovenous malformation. He will also be eligible to return to action after six games, although coach Andy Reid has indicated recently that Patterson might not be able to play this year.

The Eagles also placed guard Mike Gibson on injured reserve because of a hip injury and waived wide receiver Jamel Hamler.

Colts get down to 75 by placing three on IR, two on PUP
Posted by Darin Gantt on August 27, 2012, 1:46 PM EDT

The Colts did most of their cutting yesterday, but finished their moves Monday to get to the 75-man roster limit.

Defensive tackle Brandon McKinney and offensive tackle George Foster were placed on injured reserve, along with wide receiver Griff Whalen.

Rookie defensive tackle Josh Chapman and guard Justin Anderson were placed on the reserve/PUP list, which will keep them on the shelf for at least the first six weeks.

Chapman has battled knee injuries, and without McKinney, who suffered a torn ACL, they’re going to give him every chance to get well.

He hasn't played or practiced at all in training camp. He practiced in mini-camps, but once training camp starts, if he practiced at all he wouldn't be eligible.

Panthers get to 75-man limit, place David Gettis on PUP
Posted by Darin Gantt on August 27, 2012, 2:53 PM EDT
David Gettis

In addition to going young in the kicking game, the Panthers have had to shelve a pair of young players they had hopes for this year.

The Panthers put promising wide receiver David Gettis on the reserve/PUP list, and cornerback Brandon Hogan on IR, as they were slow to recover from previous problems.

Gettis was coming off an ACL tear last year, but it was a hamstring that kept him from working out this season. Hogan, a 2011 fourth-round pick, was rarely on the practice field this year with knee problems, after a late-career ACL at West Virginia dropped his draft stock.

The Panthers also released veteran kicker Olindo Mare and punter Nick Harris, to make way for some degree of new kicker (Justin Medlock’s the one on the roster at the moment) and sixth-round pick Brad Nortman.

The Panthers also waived wide receivers Darvin Adams, Michael Avila, Brenton Bersin and Rico Wallace, running backs Josh Vaughan and Lyndon Rowells, tight end Greg Smith, guards Roger Allen and Will Blackwell and linebacker-defensive end Eric Norwood.

Norwood was a fourth-round pick in 2010, but hasn’t done much to justify that status, the kind of tweener that certain coaches fell in love with but didn’t have a position in the NFL.

Jets move to 74
Posted by Mike Florio on August 27, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

Every team is required to be at 75 players by 4:00 p.m. ET Monday. The Jets took it one player farther.

Cutting to 80 before Sunday night’s game against the Panthers, the Jets made six roster moves on Monday, dropping their total roster to 74.

Gone are linebacker Ambrose Damario, receiver Stanley Aruke, receiver Wes Kemp, running back Jeremy Stewart, and kicker Josh Brown.

They also waived fullback/tight end Josh Baker with the “injured” designation. If he clears waivers, he’ll land on the Jets’ injured reserve list.

Rams cut 10 on their way to 75
Posted by Josh Alper on August 27, 2012, 3:28 PM EDT

We’re getting close to the deadline for teams to cut their rosters to 75 players and the names of some former Rams have come to the surface.

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Rams have waived 10 players so far, leaving them with five more moves to make before the 4 p.m. ET deadine. None of the names qualify as shockers and, unless they owe you money or are part of your family, they aren’t particularly recognizable either.

The Rams have thanked defensive lineman John Gill, linebacker Noah Keller (pictured), fullback Todd Anderson, kicker Garrett Lindolm, running back Nicholas Schweiger, wide receiver Charles Gilbert, wide receiver Brandyn Harvey, offensive lineman Kevin Hughes, linebacker Alex Hoffman-Ellis and running back Calvin Middleton for their efforts and sent them on their way.

We’ll pass along the remaining roster moves when we learn them and you can check out our 75-man roster tracker for all the moves on a busy Monday.

Broncos get down to 75
Posted by Michael David Smith on August 27, 2012, 3:34 PM EDT

The Denver Broncos are down to the NFL-mandated limit of 75 players on their roster.

Long snapper Lonie Paxton, who has played in all 16 games in each of the last three seasons for the Broncos, was the best-known veteran released by Denver today. Paxton is a well-traveled veteran who previously won three Super Bowl rings as the Patriots’ long snapper.

The Broncos also waived the following players: linebacker Elliot Coffey, wide receiver Mark Dell, wide receiver Cameron Kenney, tight end Anthony Miller, defensive end Cyril Obiozor, running back Xavier Omon, safety Anthony Perkins, tackle Mike Remmers, cornerback Ramzee Robinson, fullback Austin Sylvester and guard Austin Wuebbels.

The Broncos also placed defensive end Jason Hunter on injured reserve with a triceps injury.

In addition to placing fifth-round draft pick Randy Bullock on injured reserve, the Texans released veteran linebacker Omar Gaither and wide receiver Bryant Johnson to get to the 75-man limit, according to the Houston Chronicle.

They also waived sixth-round pick Nick Mondek, along with releasing the following players: center Thomas Austin, punter Brett Hartmann, receiver Mario Lewis, running back Davin Meggett, defensive end Jimmy Saddler-McQueen, fullback Derrell Smith, guard Kasey Studdard and cornerback Torri Williams.

Linebacker Darryl Sharpton was placed on physically unable to perform list. Nose tackle Sunny Harris and linebacker Greg William were waived-injured.

Roscoe Parrish highlights list of Chargers cuts
Posted by Josh Alper on August 27, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

As Florio reported earlier on Monday, the Chargers have decided to move on without wide receiver Roscoe Parrish.

The Chargers have released the full list of roster moves they made to get down to 75 players and Parrish is the biggest name involved. The team placed guard Johnnie Troutman, a fifth-round pick this year, on the reserve/non-football injury list because of a torn pectoral muscle he suffered just before the draft. Offensive lineman Brandyn Dombrowski will go on the reserve/non-football illness list thanks to a cyst on his foot that has kept him from passing his physical.

The Chargers also waived wide receivers Jason Barnes, Taylor Embree and Phillip Payne, defensive tackle Eddie Brown, long snapper Nick Guess, running back Michael Hayes, tight end Brad Taylor and offensive tackle Phil Trautwein.

They also reached injury settlements with defensive tackle Garrett Brown and offensive tackle Michael Toudouze.

Sixth-round pick among Niners cuts
Posted by Josh Alper on August 27, 2012, 4:08 PM EDT

The San Francisco 49ers joined the rest of the league in making roster moves to get down to 75 players on Monday and said goodbye to a member of their draft class in the process.

Tackle Jason Slowey, selected 199th overall out of Western Oregon, was waived by the team, making him the first member of the 2012 class to wash out with the Niners. If he passes through waivers unclaimed, San Francisco could bring him back when they fill out their practice squad.

Linebacker Darius Fleming, a fifth-round pick, has been placed on the reserve/physically-unable-to-perform list after injuring his knee in one of the first practices of the year and running back Jewel Hampton has been placed on the reserve/non-football injury list. Both of them will be eligible to practice and play after the Niners play their sixth game of the year.

The team also waived running back Cameron Bell, linebacker Kourtnei Brown, wide receiver Brian Tyms, safety Cory Nelms, wide receiver Joe Hastings, wide receiver Ben Hannula, kicker Giorgio Tavecchio, defensive tackle Matt Masifilo, cornerback Deante’ Purvis , tight end Joe Sawyer and defensive tackle Patrick Butrym.

Danario Alexander, Trevor Laws among Rams roster moves
Posted by Josh Alper on August 27, 2012, 4:37 PM EDT

The Rams finished up their transactions to get to 75 players and a couple of more recognizable names made the list this time.

Wide receiver Danario Alexander was waived-injured after a hamstring injury left him sidelined for all but a few practices this summer. The Rams would be allowed to bring Alexander back to put him on injured reserve if he passes through waivers, but Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that he’ll get an injury settlement from the team instead.

Alexander’s talent has never been in question, but he’s had a hard time staying on the field dating back to his college days at Missouri. He’s had five surgeries on his left knee alone, which makes it surprising that he was able to play enough to catch 46 passes for 737 yards and three touchdowns for the Rams in the last two seasons.

The Rams also placed defensive tackle Trevor Laws on injured reserve because of a patellar tendon injury. He was signed away from the Eagles as a free agent this offseason in hopes of bolstering the interior of the line, but those duties will now fall to Kendall Langford and rookie Michael Brockers.

Tight end Brody Eldridge, a fifth-round pick of the Colts in 2010, was waived. Eldridge faces a four-game suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Offensive lineman Ryan McKee and long snapper Travis Tripucka were also waived on Monday.
