Transaction Wire Blog (2/15-2/21)

We're continuing to track every NFL player transaction all year. Last Updated: Saturday at 11:16 AM ET.

Arizona Cardinals

Atlanta Falcons

Baltimore Ravens

Wednesday: Signed WR Donte' Stallworth, released TE Quinn Sypniewski (failed physical).

Comments: Signing Stallworth is a low-risk move since he only signed a one-year deal. Stallworth could always run well, and if he hasn't lost a step, he'll help their deep passing game.

Buffalo Bills

Tuesday: Waived the following players: TE Derek Fine, DEs Marcus Smith (failed physical) and Jermaine McGhee (failed physical), LB Ashlee Palmer, S John Wendling (failed physical). Released WR Justin Jenkins (failed physical), released C Marvin Phillip (failed phyical).

Thursday: Placed ORT Brad Butler on Reserve/Retired list.

Comments: Fine was a fourth-round pick for the Bills out of the 2008 draft. His release paves the way for 2009 fourth-round pick Shawn Nelson to have a bigger role in the offense.

Butler's retirement leaves the team a bit short at right tackle since he was the starter.

Carolina Panthers

Wednesday: Signed DT Ed Johnson.

Comments: Johnson signed a one-year and will be reunited with defensive coordinator Ron Meeks, who coached him with the Colts.

Chicago Bears

Cincinnati Bengals

Thursday: Signed WR Matt Jones, signed K Dave Rayner.

Comments: Jones will compete for a backup job at receiver in training camp. Rayner is current the only kicker the Bengals have under contract.

Cleveland Browns
