Friday: Added OT Phil Trautwein to practice squad, waived DE Keith Grennan.

Comments: Cleveland got as much as they could in return for Edwards, who wasn't going to be re-signed most likely. Stuckey is a slot receiver and Trusnik is a very good special teams player. Rookie WR Mohamed Massaquoi now becomes the Browns' top passing option.


Dallas Cowboys

Monday: Waived RB Chauncey Washington.

Tuesday: Signed CB Cletis Gordon, signed RB Chauncey Washington to practice squad.

Wednesday: Waived RB Keon Lattimore off IR with injury settlement.

Kansas City Chiefs


Miami Dolphins

Wednesday: Signed DT Derrick Jones to practice squad, released LB K.C. Asiodu from practice squad.


Minnesota Vikings

New England Patriots

Wednesday: Signed OLB Bruce Davis to practice squad.


New Orleans Saints

New York Giants


New York Jets

Wednesday: Traded LB Jason Trusnik, WR Chansi Stuckey, and two undisclosed draft choices to the Cleveland Browns for WR Braylon Edwards, added OLB Calvin Pace to active roster from roster exemption.

Comments: The Jets finally got some badly needed help at receiver opposite veteran Jerricho Cotchery. Edwards has excellent size and runs well, but hasn't played well since his breakout season in 2007. He has inconsistent hands and hasn't proven that he's the same player from two years ago. He seems to have been playing with a lack of concentration, but the change of scenery may help him.


Oakland Raiders

Tuesday: Released KR/CB Justin Miller.

Wednesday: Signed RB Gary Russell.


Philadelphia Eagles


Pittsburgh Steelers

Monday: Signed DE Nick Eason, waived RB Isaac Redmond.

Wednesday: Signed RB Isaac Redmond to practice squad.


San Diego Chargers


San Francisco 49ers

Monday: Released WR Dobson Collins off practice squad.

Wednesday: Signed first-round pick WR Michael Crabtree, signed DE Martail Burnett to practice squad. The 49ers have a roster exemption until 10/19 for Crabtree.

Comments: It will take Crabtree a while to get in game shape considering he missed all of training camp. So the expectations for him for this season shouldn't be very high. In time, he'll give them a badly needed addition to an average passing game.


Seattle Seahawks

Monday: Signed FB Justin Griffith, waived OT Kyle Williams.

Wednesday: Signed OT Kyle Williams to practice squad.

Saturday: Signed OT Kyle Williams off practice squad, waived DT Michael Bennett.


St. Louis Rams

Tuesday: Released LB Justin Roland from practice squad, released DT Marlon Favorite from practice squad.

Wednesday: Signed DT Adrian Grady to practice squad, signed LB Lamar Myles to practice squad.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Monday: Waived CB Marcus Hamilton, signed K Shane Andrus, released K Mike Nugent.

Wednesday: Signed DE Maurice Evans.

Saturday: Added FS Tenard Jackson from suspended list to active roster, waived DE Maurice Evans.

Comments: The Buccaneers guaranteed Nugent's one-year deal at $2 million once he was on the 53-man roster past week one. They also paid him his signing bonus of $400,000 already. So, Nugent will still make $2.4 million this season from Tampa Bay even if he doesn't sign with another team until next season.


Tennessee Titans


Thursday: Added RB Lance Ball to practice squad.


Washington Redskins

Tuesday: Signed P Glenn Pakulak to practice squad, released WR Trent Shelton off practice squad.

Saturday: Signed P Glenn Pakulak to active roster, released DE Renaldo Wynn.
