NFL teams were busy on Saturday, getting down to the 53-man player limit. But the work is not done. Some waiver claims are starting to trickle in. Here are some of the moves that teams are making on Sunday.
The 49ers claimed linebacker Ahmad Brooks, who was released by the Bengals. Brooks was a supplemental draft pick of the Bengals in 2006.
The Buccaneers cut defensive back Eugene Wilson.
The Houston Texans claimed Stanley McClover from Carolina, a speed rusher off the edge.
Center Andy Alleman, whom the Saints cut Saturday, was claimed by seven different teams but was awarded to the Miami Dolphins. Other teams that put in claims for him were Arizona, Denver, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Miami, the Jets and the New England Patriots.
The Dolphins also claimed OT Nate Garner, whom the Jets released Saturday. Now Garner will go up against his former team in Week 1.
Miami also claimed wide receiver Brandon London, whom the Giants cut Saturday.
Indianapolis claimed linebacker Buster Davis, whom the Lions released Saturday.
Green Bay is expected to sign former Redskins punter Derrick Frost.
The NFL’s leading rusher in the preseason, Marcus Mason, is expected to sign with Baltimore’s practice squad.
There were 32 players claimed on waivers, proving that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
