Saturday roster moves

Posted by ESPN.com’s Kevin Seifert

A couple of Saturday roster moves to catch up on:

  1. Hopefully this isn’t confusing. Chicago released tight end Michael Gaines to create a roster spot for new defensive end Gaines Adams. Gaines (the tight end) was on the bubble as final cuts approached last month and appeared in only one game this season. Adams (the defensive end) was acquired Friday night from Tampa Bay.

  2. Minnesota re-signed quarterback John David Booty to its practice squad, according to this note on the team’s Web site. Booty was released Tuesday to make room for offensive lineman Clint Oldenburg. Saturday, they reversed that move. The swap brings to mind one of coach Brad Childress’ most frequent sayings: “We typically roll guys through the practice squad.”
