RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks continued to lock up their 2018 draft class by signing linebacker Shaquem Griffin and cornerback Tre Flowers to rookie contracts Thursday.
Third-round pick Rasheem Green is now Seattle's lone unsigned draft pick. Griffin and Flowers were both selected in the fifth round.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns traded tight end Randall Telfer to the Kansas City Chiefs for defensive end Dadi Nicolas.
A sixth-round pick in 2015, Telfer is the sixth veteran dealt by new Browns general manager John Dorsey, who continues to remold a team that has just one victory over the past two seasons.
The Kansas City Chiefs trimmed their roster down to 53 players on Saturday afternoon, most notably slimming down their running back position.
The Chiefs cut ties with eighth-year veteran running back C.J. Spiller and placed Spencer Ware on injured reserve. They also cut undrafted free-agent Devine Redding, leaving the team with just three backs on the roster: third-round pick Kareem Hunt, fullback Anthony Sherman and change-of-pace back Charcandrick West.
