Recent NFL Signings and Transactions – August 15th

Below is a list of recent NFL players to be signed/traded/released.

Biggest news is the TE signing in Dallas, as he will be there to help take the pressure off of Jason Witten as he recovers from a torn spleen (Chris Simms is available for moral support).  The Cedric Benson signing in Green Bay has the most fantasy football relevance at the moment, as he should come in as the starter.  The best signing in recent days may be the Tennessee Titans signing of a run stopping Defensive Tackle in mammoth Michael Jasper.

Obviously the biggest name on the board is former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson.  Johnson served his purpose in Miami, he got ratings into HBO’s Hard Knocks and then was let go.  The alleged spousal abuse didn’t help his chances of sticking around either.

Name Position Status Previous Team 2012 Team
Jasper, Michael DT Signed Buffalo Tennessee
Alama-Francis, Ikaika LB Signed Miami San Francisco
