NFL transactions roundup: Rams sign Brady Quinn, Lions release Tony Scheffler

Brady Quinn's new job and Tony Scheffler's lack of one lead Tuesday's transaction headlines.

The NFL was busy on Tuesday following a lackluster Monday Night Football matchup between the Giants and Vikings. Transactions involved arrivals and dismissals on several teams throughout the league.

The biggest move of the day came from the Rams, who replaced Sam Bradford with the well-traveled Brady Quinn at quarterback, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. Fellow free agent passer Austin Davis was signed by the Rams as well, per Rapoport. Quinn was cut on Monday by the Jets after New York activated David Garrard from the exempt list. The Rams are Quinn's sixth team in seven years. Bradford was placed on injured reserve and guard Brandon Washington was waived to make room for Quinn and Davis, according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner.

Here are some more of the NFL moves that were made on Tuesday:
