Recapping a busy day of signings

One after another, the news of recent signings hit the NFL newsroom on this Wednesday.

Many of the players listed here will be reserves and special teams contributors, but several — see Dwan Edwards and Tyler Brayton — are starters.

In no particular order, here’s a look around the league:

  • The biggest signing of the day was by the Cardinals, who brought in Derek Anderson to compete with starter Matt Leinart. Anderson agreed to a two-year deal.
  • The Dolphins signed unrestricted OG Richie Incognito. The Miami Herald reports it’s a one-year deal worth just over $1 million, and that Incognito will compete for a starting job with RG Donald Thomas.
  • Unrestricted QB Rex Grossman signed a one-year contract with the Redskins, where he’ll be re-united with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.
  • The Vikings re-signed DT Jimmy Kennedy to what Jason La Canfora reports is a two-year deal worth a maximum of $6 million. Kennedy, who tied a career-high with 3.0 sacks last season, provides valuable depth behind DT Pat Williams.
  • The 49ers signed unrestricted CB Karl Paymah to a one-year contract. Paymah has mostly been a special teams contributor in his five seasons.
  • The Titans signed unrestricted DL Jason Babin to an offer sheet. Babin had a right-of-first-refusal clause written into his previous contract with the Eagles, who have one week to match and retain his rights. The Titans also re-signed restricted DE Dave Ball.
  • The Packers brought back restricted free-agent CB Will Blackmon with a one-year contract.
  • Unrestricted free-agent DE Dwan Edwards has signed with the Bills. It’s reportedly a four-year deal worth close to $18 million. Along with LB Andra Davis, the Bills have added two new pieces as the convert to a 3-4 defense.
  • Panthers starting DE Tyler Brayton will be back after agreeing to a three-year deal. Brayton, an unrestricted free agent, had visited the Seahawks.
  • The Chargers have agreed to a one-year deal with DT Ian Scott, who started seven of his 12 games last season. Retaining Scott became more important for the Chargers after losing NT Jamal Williams to the Broncos.
  • The Seahawks signed former Bucs LB Matt McCoy to a one-year contract. McCoy was an unrestricted free agent.
