NFL Transaction Wire-Week Three

We're logging every transaction through the end of the 2009 NFL regular season. Last Update: Sunday at 8:58 AM ET.

Arizona Cardinals


Atlanta Falcons

Monday: Placed DT Peria Jerry on IR, signed DT Vance Walker off practice squad, added CB Glenn Sharpe to practice squad.

Tuesday: Signed DT Jeremy Clark to practice squad.

Comments: Jerry was a starter, so that's going to be a big loss. It's too bad they didn't re-sign veteran DT Grady Jackson.


Baltimore Ravens

Tuesday: Traded LB Prescott Burgess to New England Patriots for conditional 2010 seventh-round pick, signed TE Tony Curtis.

Comments: Burgess was going to be waived, so the Ravens were able to get something for him.


Buffalo Bills

Tuesday: Placed ORT Brad Butler on IR, signed OT Jamon Meredith from Green Bay Packers practice squad, signed LB Marcus Freeman to practice squad, released LB Alvin Bowen from practice squad, signed TE Jonathan Stupar from practice squad, placed TE Derek Schouman on IR.

Wednesday: Signed OL Andre Ramsey to practice squad.

Comments: The loss of Butler is big considering none of the current starting five on their offensive line was with the team last season.


Carolina Panthers

Tuesday: Signed DT Antwon Burton, placed DT Louis Leonard on IR, waived S Nate Salley off IR with injury settlement, released DT George Hypolite from practice squad.

Wednesday: Signed DE Maurice Evans to practice squad.

Thursday: Signed CB Marquis Floyd to practice squad.

Saturday: Signed K Billy Cundiff, waived RB Alvin Peerman.

Dallas Cowboys

Tuesday: Signed RB Chauncey Washington to practice squad, released RB Julius Crosslin from practice squad.

Comments: Washington was beaten out for a roster spot with the Jaguars by rookie RB Rashad Jennings.

Wednesday: Signed RB Antone Smith to practice squad, signed G Andrew Crummey to practice squad.

Thursday: Placed G Chester Pitts on IR, signed S Bernard Pollard.

Tuesday: Acquired LB Prescott Burgess from Baltimore Ravens for conditional 2010 seventh-round pick, waived C Ryan Wendell.

Thursday: Signed C Ryan Wendell to practice squad, released OT Patrick Brown from practice squad.

Comments: Burgess will give the Patriots badly needed depth at ILB and he'll also see time on special teams.


New Orleans Saints

Saturday: Signed QB Chase Daniel off practice squad, released C Nick Leckey.


New York Giants

Thursday: Placed S Kenny Phillips on IR. Claimed S Aaron Rouse off waivers from Green Bay Packers.

Comments: Losing Phillips is a tough blow for an already injured Giant defense. Phillips had the best game of his career last week.

Wednesday: Signed CB Marquice Cole from practice squad.

Thursday: Signed TE Matthew Mulligan to practice squad.


Oakland Raiders

Seattle Seahawks

Tuesday: Released G Brian De La Puente from practice squad.

Wednesday: Added S Jamar Adams to practice squad.


St. Louis Rams

Tuesday: Signed WR Danny Amendola from Philadelphia Eagles practice squad, waived WR Derek Stanley.

Comments: Look for Amendola to compete for time on punt and kick returns immediately. He'll also be given a chance to see playing time as a slot receiver.

Wednesday: Signed CB Marcus Hamilton.

Saturday: Signed WR Mario Urrutia from practice squad, released LB Matt McCoy.

Tennessee Titans

Wednesday: Signed P Reggie Hodges, waived CB Cary Williams, signed P A.J. Trapasso to practice squad, released/injured DT Mitch King from practice squad.


Washington Redskins

Tuesday: Placed G Randy Thomas on IR, signed RB Anthony Alridge off Houston Texans practice squad.
