Saints signed DB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah.

Owusu-Ansah has appeared in 14 career games, but he hasn't seen the field since the 2011 season with Jacksonville. He was last with the Raiders.
Tue, Jul 23, 2013 06:04:00 PM

Raiders signed DB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, TE Mickey Shuler, OG Jason Foster, LB Jerrell Harris, WR Tray Session and OL Jason Slowey to reserve/future contracts.

A 2010 fourth-round pick, Owusu-Ansah has played nearly as many positions as he has NFL games, but will be a defensive back for the Raiders. He'll be a special teamer if he makes the team out of camp, however. A former Dolphin and Viking, Shuler hasn't appeared in a game since 2010.
Wed, Jan 2, 2013 02:05:00 PM

Free agent DB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah worked out for the Giants.

The Giants are lacking depth in their secondary, and have just three healthy corners on their active roster. In addition to Owusu-Ansah, the Giants worked out James Dockery, Elbert Mack, and former Colts SS David Caldwell.
Sat, Sep 8, 2012 07:11:00 PM

Free agent DB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah worked out for the Steelers.

Owusu-Ansah was waived by the Cowboys at final cuts after attempting to make the transition from safety to corner during camp. The onetime receiver has made 14 career appearances since being drafted in the 2010 fourth round.
Wed, Sep 5, 2012 07:43:00 PM

Cowboys waived or released DB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, DE Clifton Geathers, DT Ben Bass, OT Pat McQuistan, G Daniel Loper, C Harland Gunn, TE Andrew Szczerba, WR Saalim Hakim, LB Baraka Atkins and DB Lionel Smith.

Owusu-Ansah, a fourth-round pick in 2010, has bounced around the league as a special teamer. McQuistan, Atkins, and Loper have all fast become journeymen.
Fri, Aug 31, 2012 11:11:00 AM

Cowboys S Akwasi Owusu-Ansah has been moved to cornerback.

Also a former receiver, Owusu-Ansah played corner in college, but was drafted by Dallas as a safety in 2010. Whatever his position in listed as, Owusu-Ansah shouldn't contribute outside of special teams if he cracks the 53-man roster.
Mon, Jul 30, 2012 05:51:00 PM

Cowboys claimed S Akwasi Owusu-Ansah and P Jake Rogers off waivers.

The Eagles also put a claim in on Owusu-Ansah, who was originally drafted by Dallas in the fourth round two years ago. Held back early in his career by a pre-draft labrum tear, he's been primarily a special teamer in the NFL. Rogers is a camp leg behind Chris Jones.
Tue, May 8, 2012 04:56:00 PM

Jaguars signed S Akwasi Owusu-Ansah.

A fourth-round pick by the Cowboys in 2010, Owusu-Ansah has been primarily a special teamer in between injuries in 10 career games. He'll add depth following Dwight Lowery's shoulder injury Monday night.
Tue, Dec 6, 2011 04:11:00 PM

Cowboys waived WR/KR Akwasi Owusu-Ansah.

Owusu-Ansah's roster spot was needed for fullback help with Tony Fiammetta (illness) sidelined. This means Dez Bryant will be back returning punts.
Wed, Nov 30, 2011 12:05:00 PM

Cowboys promoted WR/DB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah from the practice squad.

If he's active Sunday, he'll play on special teams. Active for seven games a season ago, Owusu-Ansah returned 25 kicks, averaging a mediocre 21.7 yards.
Sat, Nov 12, 2011 02:13:00 PM

Cowboys KR/DB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah confirmed that his ankle is healthy.

Owusu-Ansah's rookie season ended early due to a high ankle sprain he suffered in Week 8. He said he's back running and doing drills. Owusu-Ansah averaged a pedestrian 21.7 yards per kickoff return last season.
Mon, Apr 11, 2011 11:01:00 AM

Cowboys placed KR Akwasi Owusu-Ansah on injured reserve with a high ankle sprain, ending his season.

"AOA" was injured in Week 8 and had a 4-6 week timetable to return, but the Cowboys want the extra roster space. Bryan McCann returned kicks in Week 9 and should get a shot to remain in the role for the rest of the season.
Wed, Nov 10, 2010 11:59:00 AM

Cowboys KR Akwasi Owusu-Ansah's injury in Week 8 was a high ankle sprain.

That means he's likely to miss 4-6 weeks. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram lists Dez Bryant, Tashard Choice and Felix Jones as possible replacements for Owusu-Ansah on kick returns.
Tue, Nov 2, 2010 10:33:00 AM

Cowboys KR Akwasi Owusu-Ansah sprained his ankle against the Jaguars Sunday and was in a walking boot following the game.

Owusu-Ansah is set for more testing on Monday. Tashard Choice will likely serve as the Cowboys' kick returner if Owusu-Ansah can't go against the Packers in Week 9.
