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.

  1. Great another 5-10 WR. Put him in as a KR today and see what he can do. What is his 40 time?
    We picked up X O-Linemen that couldn’t start in Miami last year or another lineman that couldn’t beat out the Jets’ guards last year. Vinny being Vinny and bringing in Top Notch players.

  2. So, what’s the deal with Reinhart? We never hear anything about him as he is always inactive? How is he doing? Does he have promise? Is he progressing? Is he a bust? What’s the buzz on him?

    The fact he is backing up backups makes me think he might not be as he was sold last spring.

  3. What would one expect from the Vinny..The guys is just plain awful..God damn awful..No real back up players for the o-line and d-line..Great pick up on Jason Taylor (ahem).What the hell will it take for Billy Barty to fire this guy…. Come on Snyder have a set…ALL OF US FANS THINK VINNY IS A TOOL, so does the rest of the NFL in general..Jesus, you fire everyone at a moments notice..but not an underpreforming Vinny..WTF??????? Danny..You sir are a real freaking tool

  4. FIRER Vinny, and bring in Mike Holmgren or Marty Schottenheimer as the GM.

  5. What a great addition, DE James Erasmus ,
    has been to the team. We could kept CB Leigh Torrence, and cut Erasmus. By cutting
    Torrence, the skins lost the locker room, you
    do not cut a player as valuable on special teams
    for some guy taking up a roster spot, that
    is hoping to be a great player. That’s totally
    absurd!!!! Good personell move Mr. Cerrato.

  6. coolroy34,

    Are you LaCanfora?

  7. To Will, the answer to your question is “No”, though
    I find it amusing I am in the same breath as LaConfora. I just formulate my own opinions, I’m
    just a Great Fan, from the old days. Its pretty obvious,
    by looking at the transactions of this team, management is grasping at straws at this point.

  8. Because I am pretty sure there are excellent O lineman just sitting around in Week 15 looking for a job. There is a reason Devin Clark and Will Montgomery were brought in, they are familar with the systems we try to employ. Clark has been on the practice squad all year, in meetings, etc. etc….

    Sorry guys, I wish Joe Thomas was just sitting on his butt waiting for us to call but it doesnt work that way!

  9. Does this mean we dont get the sixth round (i actually recall it being a seventh, but i could be wrong) pick back? If thats the case I really REALLY want to hear the explanation behind that one

  10. What happened to the draft pick Reinhart? Why do we always bring in below average players and expect them to play well? He’s probably sitting on the bench next to Fred Davis and the kid WR’s..

  11. I went to High School with Hagans He was QB at UVA he is pretty quick Not sure on 40 but he is quick could use him at PR. He is short but fast pretty cool dude

  12. Play all the kid’s. WR’s and Colt!!

  13. Only play the youngsters when the season is lost. About time everybody realized that “The Hogs” are a time gone by …. our realtime line is “Piglets”. We have to control the line of scrimmage on at least one side of the ball to win. We haven’t controlled either in the last couple of months.
