The Eagles signed safety Brandan Bishop on Monday to complete their 90-man roster, which was one player short due to the injury release of Earl Wolff, per a team release. Bishop has been on both the practice squads of the Vikings and Falcons since going undrafted in 2013 out of N.C. State.
The Falcons cut five players who spent time on the team's practice squad last season, per the Baltimore Sun. The players released were free safety Brandan Bishop, tackle Reid Fragel, cornerback Jordan Mabin, linebacker Jacques Smith and running back Ronnie Wingo. None of the five had appeared in a game with the Falcons.
The Vikings released safety Brandan Bishop, offensive tackles Kevin Murphy and Pierce Burton, defensive ends Jake Snyder and Tyler Scott, defensive tackle Kheeston Randall, receivers Kamar Jorden, Erik Lora and Andy Cruse, and cornerbacks Derek Cox and Robert Steeples. Minnesota also waived/injured safety Mistral Raymond, who suffered a concussion in the preseason opener.
The Vikings signed six players to reserve/future contracts: safety Brandan Bishop, cornerback Kip Edwards, offensive tackle Kevin Murphy, defensive end Spencer Nealy, receiver Adam Thielen and running back Bradley Randle.
The Vikings announced Thursday they promoted wide receiver Rodney Smith to the active roster after placing linebacker Desmond Bishop (knee) on injured reserve. Minnesota also announced defensive back Brandan Bishop was signed to the practice squad.
