Shock busy with transactions

Spokane made changes to nearly 1/3 of its roster Monday, most notably signing OL Chris Pino (a familiar name to Shock followers), putting LB Beau Bell on injured reserve and placing WR Adron Tennell and DL Brandon Sharpe on league suspension.

I'm heading out to Shock practice in a couple minutes and I'll post a notebook later tonight.

More on Monday's moves below.


Spokane made nine player moves on a busy Monday, three days after an 84-63 Arena Football League loss to Utah.

Spokane signed offensive lineman Chris Pino, who has had two stints with the Shock, linebacker Kevin Ellison and quarterback Rob Kass. Reserve quarterback Adam Froman, who has missed the last two games for his wedding, was released.

Offensive lineman Cory Brandon was placed on Other League Exempt after signing with the San Diego Chargers. Linebacker Beau Bell, expected to depart for the CFL in the near future, was placed on injured reserve. Linebacker Frantz Joseph was activated from Refused to Report.

Wide receiver Adron Tennell and defensive lineman Brandon Sharpe were placed on league suspension.
