Tuesday transactions: Chargers sign Boone

Passing along a few Tuesday transactions made around the league:

  • The Chargers signed nine-year veteran DT Alfonso Boone to help fill the void on the defensive line left when DT Jamal Williams was placed on IR with a triceps injury. The Chargers are familiar with Boone — he played for current defensive coordinator Ron Rivera for three years, and defensive line coach Don Johnson two years, with the Chicago Bears. Boone, who spent the last two years with the Chiefs, has starting experience, with 37 starts in 113 career games.
  • The Panthers continue to search for replacements at defensive tackle. The team signed Antwon Burton to replace Louis Leonard, who broke his left ankle in Sunday’s loss to Atlanta. The Panthers had acquired Leonard from the Browns to replace starter Maake Kemoeatu, who was lost with a season-ending Achilles injury on the first day of training camp.
  • The Rams signed WR Danny Amendola from the Eagles’ practice squad and waived WR Derek Stanley.
  • The Cowboys have yet to release any official word on the quadriceps injury to RB Marion Barber — expect some type of update with Wednesday’s injury reportbut the team did sign rookie RB Chauncey Washington to their practice squad Tuesday. Washington was a seventh-round pick out of USC who saw limited time with the Jaguars this season.
  • The Ravens traded LB Prescott Burgess to the Patriots for a conditional seventh-round draft pick and signed TE Tony Curtis. Burgess, who was a sixth-round pick in 2007, was used primarily on special teams by the Ravens.
  • The Bills signed OT Jamon Meredith from the Packers’ practice squad to help bolster a young offensive line that lost starting RT Brad Butler for the season with a knee injury.
