NFL Transaction Wire-Week Seven

Lots of moves around the NFL this week. Last Updated: Saturday at 7:19 PM ET.

Arizona Cardinals

Tuesday: Released LB Lee Robinson from practice squad.

Wednesday: Signed LB Brandon Renkart to practice squad.

Atlanta Falcons

Tuesday: Placed CB Brian Williams on IR, signed S Jamaal Fudge.

Wednesday: Signed RB Antone Smith to practice squad, released QB D.J. Shockley from practice squad.

Baltimore Ravens

Buffalo Bills

Carolina Panthers

Monday: CB Dante Wesley suspended one game for an illegal tackle, acquired DT Tank Tyler from Kansas City Chiefs for a 2010 fifth-round pick.

Tuesday: Waived DT Antwon Burton, released DT Terrence Taylor off practice squad, signed DT Rashaad Duncan to practice squad.

Wednesday: Signed S Keith Lewis.

Comments: Wesley hit a defenseless punt returner before the player could have a chance to catch the ball. Tyler will give Carolina some badly needed depth for the interior of their defensive line.

Chicago Bears

Tuesday: Signed C Donovan Raiola to practice squad, released DE Ervin Baldwin from practice squad.

Cincinnati Bengals

Monday: Placed DE Antwan Odom on IR.

Tuesday: Signed DT Orien Harris.

Comments: Huge loss for the Bengals. They'll use backup DE Jonathan Fanene to replace him, but he's not close to the pass rusher than Odom is. The coaches will also give rookie DE Michael Johnson extra snaps.

Cleveland Browns

Tuesday: Placed ILB D'Qwell Jackson on IR, signed DL Keith Grennan to practice squad, released DL Carlton Powell from practice squad.

Wednesday: Signed TE Michael Gaines, signed TE Colin Cloherty to practice squad.

Comments: Tough loss for the Browns as Jackson is clearly one of their top two defensive players.

Dallas Cowboys

Denver Broncos

New York Giants

Tuesday: Waived OT Andrew Carnahan from IR, signed DT Dwayne Hendricks to practice squad.

New York Jets

Monday: Placed DT Kris Jenkins on IR.

Tuesday: Signed DT Howard Green, signed DT Antonio Garay to practice squad.

Monday: Devastating loss as Jenkins is one of the top nose tackles in the NFL. Their run defense figures to take a major drop-off.

Oakland Raiders

Philadelphia Eagles

Tuesday: Acquired LB Will Witherspoon from St. Louis Rams for WR Brandon Gibson and 2010 fifth-round pick.

Wednesday: Signed C Dallas Reynolds to practice squad.

Thursday: Signed WR Dobson Collins to practice squad, released CB Stoney Woodson off practice squad.

Comments: Witherspoon can play WLB or MLB, but will likely play MLB for Philadelphia. The Eagles had major problems at that position since starter Stewart Bradley was lost for the season in early August. When Bradley returns next year, Witherspoon can move over to WLB.

A source said the Rams will take on a cap hit of $1.8 million based on the remaining portion of his prorated signing bonus. They'll get a rebate of his $2.5 million base salary.
