Cornerback Gabe Derricks was brought on shortly after the draft. He was waived and re-signed earlier this month.

Offensive lineman Mark Ortmann was signed last week after the Quinn Ojinnaka trade. Ortmann had previously spent a couple months with the Panthers before being waived. Mike Smith admitted on Friday that he didn’t “know a lot about Mark,” and now it looks like things will stay that way.
