Seahawks waived TE Dominique Byrd.

Byrd actually managed to make seven catches for 85 yards and a touchdown during the preseason, but wasn't going to see a meaningful amount of snaps behind Zach Miller and Anthony McCoy. He's appeared in just one game since the end of the 2007 season.

Seahawks signed TE Dominique Byrd, FB A.J. Schable, and CB Brandon Browner to reserve/future contracts.

Byrd played for coach Pete Carroll at USC. Schable, a special teamer, is trying to make a comeback after being out of football since 2008. Browner emerged as an all-star in the CFL after going undrafted in 2005.

Cardinals waived TE Dominique Byrd, OT Casey Knips, and C/G David Moosman.

The team did sign practice body receiver Isaiah Williams, so three more moves need to be made to get down to 75. Byrd fell behind late-round rookie Jim Dray at the bottom of Arizona's tight end depth chart, sealing his fate.

Cardinals TE Dominique Byrd is working some in a fullback/H-back role at camp.

Blocking was never considered Byrd's strongsuit, so we doubt this will work out. Versatility, however, will increase Byrd's chances of making the team.

Cardinals signed TE Dominique Byrd, FB Reagan Maui'a, CB Trumaine McBride, S Herana-Daze Jones, and DL Dean Muhtadi to reserve/futures contracts.

Byrd isn't without receiving skills, but he was unable to make an impact in half a season last year. He'll have to improve his blocking to win a roster spot.

Cardinals signed TE Dominique Byrd, formerly of the Rams.

Byrd left USC in 2006 with a starting-caliber skill set, but bar brawled his way out of the league. He disfigured one man's face with a broken beer bottle in December 2006. He'll push Ben Patrick and Leonard Pope to make the club.

Former Rams TE Dominique Byrd worked out for NFL teams at the USC Pro Day Wednesday.

Byrd, cut by St. Louis in Feb. 2008, had a string of off-field problems after being the club's third-round pick in 2006. No one will rush to sign him.

The trial of former Rams tight end Dominique Byrd has been rescheduled for June 23 in St. Louis Circuit Court.

Byrd is facing charges of assault and armed criminal action stemming from a nightclub scuffle downtown in December 2006. The underachieving Byrd isn't going to find a welcoming market for his services.

Rams waived TE Dominique Byrd.

A third-round pick out of USC in 2006, Byrd could not get on the field behind Joe Klopfenstein, Randy McMichael, and Aaron Walker. He was also arrested in 2006 for striking a man in the face with a broken bottle at a bar, DUI in 2007, and was deactivated for the Rams' finale last season for missing a meeting. Byrd may not get another chance.
