When I started having trouble posting this morning, I thought to myself, “Well, at least it’s an NFL Tuesday, so nothing major should happen while I get this fixed.”
I’ll have something about today’s radio drama in a bit, but first, here are the promised roster moves:
Chris Samuels and Justin Geisinger are moved to injured reserve, and Erasmus James has been released.
Tackle Devin Clark has been signed from the practice squad to the active roster as predicted, and the team has also signed free agent guard Will Montgomery.
Wide receiver Marques Hagans (that’s him in the picture) and guard Ruben Riley have been added to the practice squad.
After the jump, the press release bios of all four guys:
Clark (6-4, 312) was promoted from the Redskins’ practice squad, where he spent the first 14 weeks of the 2008 season. He originally signed with Washington on May 2, 2008 and was with the team during training camp prior to being released on Aug. 30. He was signed to Washington’s practice squad the following day.
Montgomery (6-3, 312) is in his third NFL season and has played in 13 career games, starting six, with the Carolina Panthers and the New York Jets. He was inactive for two regular season games with the Jets this season before being waived on Oct. 14. Montgomery originally joined the Jets as a free agent on Sept. 19, 2007. He played in the team’s final seven games with two starts, was inactive for six additional contests, and did not play in one other game last season. He originally entered the NFL as a seventh-round pick (234th overall) of the Carolina Panthers in 2006. In his rookie season, he played in six games with a career-best four starts. A native of Clifton, Va., Montgomery prepped at Centreville High School.
Hagans (5-10, 205) has played in six career games with the St. Louis Rams (four games in 2007) and Kansas City Chiefs (two games in 2008), totaling nine receptions for 108 yards. Hagans has spent the majority of the 2008 season with the Chiefs’ practice squad. He originally entered the NFL in 2006 as a fifth-round draft pick of St. Louis out of the University of Virginia, where he played quarterback, wide receiver and kick returner. He is a native of Hampton, Va.
Riley (6-4, 305) spent the 2007 season with the Carolina Panthers’ practice squad. He spent parts of the 2008 training camp with Miami and Carolina.
