NFL teams are continuing to add depth to various positions from both sides of the ball as we get closer to the start of training camps. We're also starting to see rookies signing their deals. Last Updated: Saturday at 3:22 PM ET.

Arizona Cardinals

Atlanta Falcons


Baltimore Ravens

Tuesday: Re-signed exclusive rights free agent LB Jameel McClain.


Buffalo Bills

Thursday: Signed fifth-round pick OT Ed Wang.

Comments: Wang signed a four-year deal, a source said.


Carolina Panthers


Chicago Bears

Monday: Signed LB Brian Iwuh, waived TE Kevin Brock.

Friday: Signed third-round pick S Major Wright.

Comments: According to a league source, Wright signed a four-year deal worth roughly $2.47 million.


Cincinnati Bengals


Cleveland Browns

Tuesday: Waived UDFA K Leigh Tiffin from IR.


Dallas Cowboys

Wednesday: Signed TE Kevin Brock.

Thursday: Re-signed S Gerald Sensabaugh.

Comments: Sensabaugh signed his one-year RFA tender.


Denver Broncos

Tuesday: Signed seventh-round pick LB Jammie Kirlew.

Comments: According to a league source, he signed a four-year deal.


Detroit Lions

Green Bay Packers


Houston Texans

Thursday: Signed fifth-round pick Serrick McManis.

Thursday: He signed a four-year deal, according to a league source.


Indianapolis Colts


Jacksonville Jaguars

Tuesday: Acquired G Justin Smiley from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for an undisclosed future draft pick, waived RB Allen Patrick.

Comments: Smiley figures to take over as the team's starting left guard.


Kansas City Chiefs


Miami Dolphins

Monday: Signed OL Cory Procter.

Tuesday: Traded G Justin Smiley to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for an undisclosed draft choice.

Thursday: Released LB Reggie Torbor (failed physical).

Procter will provide depth at guard and center.

Smiley appeared in 15 games last season and started 12. However, his play regressed as the season progressed, so the team looked to trade him for several months. Both starting guard spots look to be wide open as we get closer to the start of training camp.

Torbor was set to make over $6 million in base salary over the final two years of his deal--way too much for special teams player and backup linebacker.


Minnesota Vikings


New England Patriots

Tuesday: Signed third-round pick WR Taylor Price.

Thursday: Re-signed LB Derrick Burgess, waived WR Isaiah Stanback, waived LB Bruce Davis.

Comments: Price signed a four-year deal.


New Orleans Saints


Monday: Signed FB Jason McKie, waived RB Carlos Brown, waived S Ryan Hamilton.

Comments: McKie will compete for the starting job against fellow veteran FB Heath Evans.


New York Giants


New York Jets

Thursday: Waived UDFA K Clint Stitser.


Oakland Raiders


Philadelphia Eagles

Tuesday: Waived P Durant Brooks.

Thursday: Signed UDFA S Ryan Hamilton.


Pittsburgh Steelers


San Diego Chargers

Wednesday: Re-signed DE Travis Johnson.

He signed his one-year RFA tender.


San Francisco 49ers


Seattle Seahawks

Thursday: Waived UDFA DT DeMarcus Granger.

Friday: Released RB LenDale White.

Comments: Considering they acquired White via trade on draft weekend, it makes you think that he wasn't let go just for a performance based situation. White lost over 20 pounds so far this year. Because he's a vested veteran, he's not subject to waivers, so he's free to sign with any team.


St. Louis Rams

Monday: Waived the following players: FB Kennedy Tinsley, WRs Rod Owens and Nick Moore, DT Chris Bradwell, and LB Simoni Lawrence.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers


Tennessee Titans

Tuesday: Released WR Mark Jones, waived C Kenny Alfred, waived/injured RB Dominique Lindsay.

Wednesday: Placed RB Dominique Lindsay on IR.


Washington Redskins

Tuesday: Re-signed S Reed Doughty.

Comments: He signed his one-year RFA tender.
