Position Listing
Don Jones
News
The Saints made a number of changes to their roster on Saturday, per ESPN.com.

Running back Tim Hightower and offensive lineman Mike McGlynn were cut. Linebacker Davis Tull, who is nursing a shoulder injury, was put on the injured reserve.

New Orleans also added safety Don Jones , wide receiver Seantavius Jones and fullback Toben Opurum to the active roster from the practice squad.

Xavier Cooper
News
Browns rookie defensive tackle Xavier Cooper has opened eyes in training camp and through two preseason games. Those eyes opened wider when he registered sacks two and three Thursday night against Buffalo.

The Browns selected Cooper late in the third round because they were intrigued by his quick first step, according to the team website. His success hasn't surprised fellow Browns rookie lineman Dylan Wynn, who played against Cooper in college.

"Coop's been killing it," Wynn said. "He's a monster. He was just like that at Washington State ... He's a special player. He definitely got slept on in the draft and that's why he went third round. ... He just gets it done."

Alvin Bailey
News
Seahawks guard Alvin Bailey had a productive offseason. Bailey lost 30 pounds in the team's offseason conditioning program and is now in the best shape of his career. 

""That's a big statement," coach Pete Carroll told Seattle's 710 AM radio. "Everybody appreciates that. The fact that he's worked so hard shows he realizes his opportunity here. ... He's a very smart kid, and he doesn't get out of whack by the challenges out there, but at 350, he could be a little bit lighter."

Mike Matthews
No Updates
Danny Shelton
News
Shelton reported to minicamp at 335 pounds, which he claims is "close to 30 pounds" less than what he weighed last season, Cleveland.com reports.

Shelton was listed at 339 pounds during the course of 2015, but, if his claim is accurate, then he actually finished last season weighing nearly 365-370 pounds. Unsurprisingly, he played on just 48 percent of the Browns'defensive snaps and consistently appeared to wear down during the second half of games. Operating at a lower playing weight will help Shelton stay healthy and keep pressure off his knees, as well as allow the Browns to keep their first-round defensive tackle on the field more often.

Nate Orchard
News
Orchard (groin) is active Sunday against the Bengals.

Orchard was limited in practice all week, but will suit up and presumably take on a meaningful snap count from the outside linebacker spot in the Week 13 contest.

Justin Tuggle
News
The Texans released a lengthy injury report that included 16 players leading up to Week 12 against Cincinnati. 13 of the 16 players on the list were deemed probable.

Kareem Jackson (knee) was the only player ruled out, while Arian Foster (groin) and Max Bullough (hamstring) were deemed questionable.

The following players were ruled as probable for Sunday: Tyson Clabo (foot), Jadeveon Clowney (knee), Brian Cushing (knee), Akeem Dent (neck), Jonathan Grimes (ankle), Andre Johnson (rest), Johnathan Joseph (knee), Ryan Mallett (chest), Whitney Mercilus (knee), Mike Mohamed (hip), Darryl Morris (ankle), Jeff Tarpinian (knee) and Justin Tuggle (shoulder).

Duke Johnson
News
Johnson will sometimes be split out as a wide receiver this season, Cleveland.com reports.

Johnson's 61 receptions as a rookie running back last season made him a PPR darling, and new coach Hue Jackson intends to get him the ball in more ways this year. That includes splitting Johnson out at wide receiver in some packages, adding another layer to his fantasy value. As it stands, Johnson will compete with Isaiah Crowell for the Browns' starting running back gig, but on a Cleveland offense in need of playmakers, his versatility should allow for ample touches no matter his ultimate pegging on the depth chart.

Terrelle Pryor
News
Pryor's explosiveness has caused coach Hue Jackson to search for ways to get him the ball, Cleveland.com reports.

Pryor is trying to make the grade as an NFL wide receiver, and although his skills are rather raw and he obviously is inexperienced after coming up as a quarterback, his size and speed combination could add needed big-play ability to the Browns' offense. Knowing that, coach Jackson has already drawn up short passes and reverses to get him the ball in practice, but it remains to be seen if he can be trusted with a more balanced workload. As a result, Pryor's progress through training camp and the preseason should be worthwhile to monitor, particularly given the Browns' seemingly wide-open competition to fill out their receiving depth chart.

Travis Coons
News
Coons has re-signed with the Browns.

Coons set an NFL record by making 18 consecutive field goals to begin his career last season, when he converted 28-of-32 attempts overall. Such consistency has him slated to be the Browns' starting kicker once again this term.

Glenn Winston
News
Winston, who did not play Week 17 due to a concussion, finished the season with one rushing attempt for a loss of eight yards.

To make matters worse, that single attempt resulted in Winston losing a fumble. The 26-year-old back was active for three games this season, primarily to provide an emergency option behind Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson following the release of Robert Turbin. Winston is on a team-friendly contract for another season, one in which he'll likely serve a similar role.

Scooby Wright
No Updates
Paul Kruger
News
The Browns have cleared all their probables for the Sunday game against Indianapolis. That group includes linebacker Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) and Paul Kruger (illness), as well as center Nick McDonald (ankle/knee).

Kyle Rose
No Updates
Garth Gerhart
News
The following players have been deemed inactive for the Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game: DuJuan Harris, Demetri Goodson, Carl Bradford, Garth Gerhart, Justin Perillo, Jeff Janis and Bruce Gatson.

The Packers are currently 8-point underdogs against the Seahawks Sunday.

Demario Davis
News
Davis has signed a two-year deal with the Browns worth $8 million, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.

Davis figures to compete for a starting job at inside linebacker with the Browns, along with Chris Kirksey and Karlos Dansby. The 27-year-old Davis, who should bolster the Browns' run defense in 2016, recorded 90 tackle sand two sacks in 16 starts for the Jets this past season.

Jamar Taylor
News
The Browns traded a seventh-round draft pick (223rd overall) to the Dolphins in exchange for Taylor and the 250th pick in the draft, NFL.com reports.

Taylor, who was taken by the Dolphins in the second round of the 2013 draft, will look to re-boot his NFL career after ending up a healthy scratch for three of Miami's last five games this past season. At the very least, he provides the Browns with a player with some untapped ability to boost the team's depth at cornerback.

Josh McCown
News
McCown split first-team QB reps with Robert Griffin at the Browns' voluntary minicamp Tuesday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Per the report, McCown, who is coming off a broken collarbone, looked good during Tuesday's workout, while actually working before Griffin. That said, there is a solid chance that McCown could be traded or released by the Browns now that Griffin is on hand, so it's way too early to get a handle on the fantasy prospects of McCown, who turns 37 in July.

Mikell Everette
No Updates
Josh Gordon
News
Gordon (suspension) suffered a quad injury this summer and won't be able to practice for at least a couple weeks, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Gordon was conditionally reinstated by the NFL on Monday, allowing him to participate in training camp as he prepares to start the season with a four-game suspension. The Browns then announced that they will give the star wideout another shot, setting him up for a long-awaited return in Week 5, assuming he avoids any off-field issues in the meantime. However, Monday's plethora of good news was hindered a bit Tuesday, as the 25-year-old wideout has apparently been recovering from a quad injury that was previously unreported. While details weren't provided, initial reports suggest the quad is a major concern, with Gordon expected to miss "at least a couple weeks" at the start of training camp. Even if the injury doesn't threaten his Week 5 availability, it's worrisome that Gordon may miss a good chunk of camp (and possibly the preseason), as he already faces the tough task of returning from a 22-month layoff between NFL games, rejoining a Browns team that looks nothing at all like the version he last played for. Gordon will start camp on the Non-Football Injury list.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 vs. New England
Charley Hughlett
News
Quarterback Brian Hoyer (shoulder) and cornerback Justin Gilbert, who is being disciplined, headline the inactives posted by the Browns for their Sunday game in Baltimore. Also hurt and out are defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) and tackle Ryan Seymour (hamstring).

A trio of healthy scratches include long snapper Charley Hughlett, offensive lineman Andrew McDonald and wideout Phil Bates.

John Greco
News
Browns coach Mike Pettine said Thursday offensive lineman John Greco will likely start at center and offensive lineman Paul McQuistan will start at right guard Week 7 at Jacksonville. The starting lineup along the offensive line is undergoing changes in the wake of center Alex Mack's leg injury. 
A.J. Stamps
No Updates
Justin Gilbert
News
Browns cornerback Justin Gilbert (hamstring) is active for the first time this season Sunday against the Raiders.

With K'Waun Williams on the shelf due to a concussion, Gilbert will take the field to provide the team with depth in the secondary. He has a seemingly good chance of seeing a noteworthy amount of snaps, especially in dime packages and other passing situations.

Chris Kirksey
News
Kirksey had eight total tackles in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Kirksey had five solo tackles and three assisted tackles in Sunday's loss to the Rams. This puts him at 37 total tackles for the season, making him Cleveland's third leading tackler. Should he keep up his solid production, Kirksey is at very least worth a look in many fantasy leagues.

Cameron Erving
News
Browns rookie offensive lineman Cameron Erving has a lot of potential. The team recognized that and selected him with the 19th pick in this year's draft, but he's also receiving high praise from another first-round pick, per the team website.

Erving, who played at Florida State, is highly touted by former teammate and top-overall pick Jameis Winston.

“Not only was he my center, but he was my blindside as well,” said Winston at the NFC Rookie Symposium Play 60 event in Berea. “He’s a great player. He works hard. He is very excited to be (in Cleveland). I was FaceTiming the other day. He’s such a great person. I thank God every day he was protecting me at Florida State.

“Cam’s just a versatile player. He wanted to be able to show all of his talents. I think he played a big role, we had some young guys step up and he played a big role (in their development).”

Jordan Payton
News
The Browns selected Payton in the 2016 NFL Draft, 154th overall.

The UCLA product led the Bruins in receptions and receiving yards in each of his last two seasons on campus, combining for 145 catches and 2,060 yards in that span. He has more speed than one would guess on tape given his thick frame, but he was able to run a 4.47 40-yard dash at the Combine. Payton does have some trouble reaching that maximum speed off the line, however, which could be a problem against NFL level press coverage. In all, he does fit a need for the Browns in that he offers some size and ability to work the intermediate routes opposite speed demon Corey Coleman.

Nick Hayden
News
Hayden has signed with the Browns.

Hayden spent the past three seasons with the Cowboys, averaging over 43 tackles during his time in Dallas. Entering his eighth season, Hayden figures to add depth and experience to the Browns' interior defensive line.

E.J. Bibbs
News
Bibbs finished his rookie season with one catch on two targets for seven yards.

Bibbs was able to make some noise during camp, but it was clear early on that Gary Barnidge would be the top pass catching option at the position. As such, Bibbs was inactive for nine of the first 10 games of the season, but did make the active roster for each game after the team's bye. Like fellow tight end Jim Dray, the 260-pound Bibbs is arguably just as useful as a blocker, so perhaps his time will come over the next couple seasons.

Tramon Williams
News
Williams had six solo tackles and three assisted tackles in Sunday's loss to Arizona.

This was easily Williams' best game of the season, as he climbed to fourth on the Browns in tackles. Cleveland's defense isn't exactly an example to the league, but Williams is a valuable part of the Browns' game plan.

Robert Griffin III
News
Griffin has consistently been taking first-team snaps at OTAs, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Although Griffin is the clear favorite to win a competition against Josh McCown and third-round rookie Cody Kessler, the battle will likely continue throughout training camp and the preseason. Griffin is the only one of the trio possessing long-term upside, but McCown was actually decent when healthy last season, completing 63.7 percent of his passes for 7.2 yards per attempt, with 12 touchdowns and just four interceptions in eight games (all starts). Granted, Cleveland won just one of those eight games, needing overtime to do so.

Darius Jennings
News
Jennings, who caught six passes on 10 targets for 45 yards in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, finished the season with 14 catches for 117 yards.

Jennings was promoted from Cleveland's practice squad in early December, taking advantage of the opportunity provided by the placement of Brian Hartline (collarbone) and Andrew Hawkins (concussion) on IR. He was active for four total games and targeted in three, proving useful at a depleted slot position. The Browns will presumably add other wide receiver options during the draft, and that will factor in to whether or not Jennings is brought back in 2016.

Tank Carder
News
The Browns list a whopping 16 players on their Friday injury report, but half are probable for the Week 17 battle in Pittsburgh, including All-Pro tackle Joe Thomas (back). The other offensive players among them are running back Willis McGahee (knee) and tackle Mitchell Schwartz (toe).

The four defensive probables are linebackers Paul Kruger (illness) and Tank Carder (shoulder), safety Jordan Poyer (toe) and safety T.J. Ward (shoulder, illness). Punter Spencer Lanning (knee) is also probable.

Nile Lawrence-Stample
No Updates
Barkevious Mingo
News
Mingo's fifth-year contract option was not picked up by the Browns, Cleveland.com reports.

Mingo has managed just seven sacks in three seasons since being the sixth overall pick in 2013, so it's no surprise that the Browns declined his option, which would have paid him around $12 million in 2017. As a result, Mingo will become an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming campaign, when he'll aim to improve his pass rushing numbers with the help of about 20 pounds of muscle added this offseason.

Eric Patterson
News
The Patriots have announced the release of rookie cornerback Eric Patterson one day after signing veteran Derek Cox.

Patterson was signed May 8 as an undrafted free agent. He had been participating in OTAs.

Charles Gaines
News
The Browns signed quarterback Austin Davis and placed cornerback Charles Gaines on injured reserve on Monday, per Ohio.com.

Davis was cut by the Rams earlier this week. Gaines will be eligible to return to practice in Week 6 and play in Week 8.

K'Waun Williams
News
Williams (shoulder) is active Sunday against the Steelers.

Williams was limited in practice all week, but that won't prevent him from suiting up for the season finale. The team will certainly welcome his service, having already lost Joe Haden (concussion) for the year and being without fellow corner Tramon Williams (concussion) on Sunday as well.

Carl Nassib
News
With Desmond Bryant out 4-to-6 months with a torn pectoral muscle, Nassib has a chance to be an immediate starter at left defensive end.

Nassib was drafted 65th overall by the Browns in the 2016 NFL Draft, and has a chance to start right away. While this may be developing Nassib more quickly than the Browns would like, he'll get immediate starting experience and an opportunity to show his worth.

Taylor Gabriel
News
Gabriel is dealing with a lower left leg injury and was seen sporting a walking boot during the Browns' OTAs, The Chronicle-Telegram's Scott Petrak reports.

Gabriel was known to be dealing with an injury this offseason, though it was assumed to be related to the fractured orbital he suffered in Week 17 versus Pittsburgh. Now, his foot appears to be the reason he can't practice. As was the case when Gabriel was assumed to be dealing with an eye injury, the Browns' lack of concern suggests this mysterious foot injury isn't a big deal either. However, his lack of production since joining a desolate receiving corps, coupled with how the Browns selected five receivers in the first five rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft (or one less than the entire NFC), paints Gabriel as a borderline candidate to crack the 53-man roster come August.

Rannell Hall
News
When the Buccaneers drafted Utah wide receiver Kaelin Clay in the sixth round, general manager Jason Licht indicated the team's kick returner job would be Clay's to lose.

However, special teams coordinator Kevin O'Dea isn't as eager to just hand the job over to the rookie, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

"First of all, we're not going to hand it to Clay," O'Dea said. "We've got other guys that are undrafted that look pretty special to me, as well."

O'Dea said fifth-round pick Kenny Bell and undrafted receivers Donteea Dye, Adam Humphries and Rannell Hall could all battle for the position.

The Bucs were eighth in the league in 2014 in punt returns (10.8 yards per return). O'Dea said the only things missing were longer blocks and a dynamic returner.

"If you stay on your guy, he'll get to the house," O'Dea said. "That's the bottom line." 

Armonty Bryant
News
Bryant (suspension) will participate in the Browns' offseason program despite being suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season, Cleveland.com reports.

Bryant is not only suspended for the first quarter of this season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, but he was also indicted in February on felony drug charges. Despite those troubling off-field issues, Bryant will be with the Browns when their offseason program begins next month, even though his status with the team beyond then remains a bit more uncertain.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 vs. New England
Jackson Jeffcoat
News
Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher has missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Hatcher has missed Washington's last two games with a knee injury.

Trent Williams (shoulder), Chris Baker (toe/elbow), Gabe Miller (ankle), Keenan Robinson (knee) and Stephen Bowen (ankle/illness) are all listed as questionable for the game. 

Robert Griffin III (shoulder), Bashaud Breeland (thigh), Barry Coefield (shoulder), Tom Compton (knee), Will Compton (shoulder), Jackson Jeffcoat (calf), Kory Lichtensteiger (stinger) and Darrel Young (ankle) are all considered probable.

The Redskins are currently 5 1/2-point underdogs at home against the Cowboys. 

Ricardo Louis
News
The Browns selected Louis in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 114th overall.

Louis (6-foot-2, 215 pounds) is one of the most athletic receivers in the draft, boasting 4.43 speed, a 38-inch vertical and a 132-inch broad jump. Louis probably doesn't have great upside since he was a late bloomer at Auburn, never exceeding 325 receiving yards in a season prior to 2015, but he was all along a strong open-field runner, and his rare athleticism gives him a real chance to turn into a starting wideout in the NFL.

The Browns signed offensive lineman Erle Ladson , the team announced on Tuesday. Ladson was a member of Oakland last season. 

To make room, Cleveland released defensive back Micah Pellerin. The team signed him earlier this offseason after he played for Dallas last year. 

Joe Haden
News
Haden (ankle) has been placed on the PUP list for the start of training camp, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Still recovering from March surgery to repair cartilage and ligament damage in his ankle, Haden isn't ready for the start of training camp and remains uncertain for the beginning of the season. Injuries limited him to just five games last year.

Injury
Ankle - PUP. Questionable for start of season
Joe Schobert
News
The Brown selected Schobert in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 99th overall.

Schobert is an inside linebacker for Cleveland's 3-4, but one who has more blitzing ability than the average inside linebacker. Playing outside in Wisconsin's 3-4, Schobert totaled 79 tackles and 9.5 sacks last year, as well as 19.5 tackles for loss.

Andrew Hawkins
News
Hawkins (concussion) took part in April minicamp, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Hawkins missed eight games due to a pair of concussions last season, ultimately landing on injured reserve for the final two weeks. He should be back in the mix for a key role out of the slot, though the Browns did add possible competition for snaps, selecting four wide receivers in the recent draft. Meanwhile, Robert Griffin and Josh McCown are expected to compete for the starting quarterback job.

Gary Barnidge
News
Barnidge (abdomen) plans to be ready before training camp.

Barnidge underwent surgery less than a week ago on a sports hernia but plans to come into training camp ready to go. The leader in receptions last season for the Browns said he specifically planned the timing surgery. "It was just an opportunity to get it all done and I won't miss any time. That was the purpose of it, so we would get all of this done and then I would be ready to go for training camp and it wouldn't pop in season", Barnidge said Wednesday before Browns' practice.

Raheem Mostert
News
Mostert was released by the Ravens on Tuesday.

Mostert was a non-factor in Baltimore's offense and made only a marginal impact in the return game, so the team decided to remove him from the roster and add fellow running back Terrence Magee. The Ravens did activate him for seven games this season, so they may look to keep him around.

Patrick Murray
News
Murray was waived by the Bucs on Thursday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 24-year-old last kicked for the Bucs in his rookie year of 2014, hitting 20 of 24 field goals, including 5 of 6 from 50 yards or more. Murray was also perfect that season on 31 extra points at the previous distance, but suffered a knee injury last summer and was in the midst of recovering from spring knee surgery. The timing of the move figures to provide the Fordham product with plenty of time to find a training camp opportunity for 2016, and also leaves the Bucs with an opening on their 90-man roster.

Desmond Bryant
News
Bryant is likely done for the season with a torn pectoral muscle, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Bryant's timetable for return is set at 4-to-6 months. Bryant led the Browns with six sacks, along with 24 solo tackles and nine assisted tackles. While Bryant is out, rookie Carl Nassib may be next in line to start at left defensive end.

News
The Browns announced several roster moves on Saturday, per FOX Sports Ohio. The team promoted quarterback Connor Shaw and defensive lineman Jamie Meder from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster. In a corresponding move, Cleveland waived linebacker Eric Martin and tight end Ryan Taylor.
Isaiah Crowell
News
Crowell may be punished by the Browns for an extremely insensitive Instagram post, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

The Browns said they have no plans to cut Crowell, but that just an apology for the post would be insufficient, and that he must take steps to make a positive difference after the post. It's unclear what these steps will be, but it's likely there will be more updates in the near future.

John Hughes
News
The Browns and defensive end John Hughes have reached a deal on a contract extension. Hughes will sign a four-year deal worth $14.4 million in new money, pending a physical, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Media on Friday.

Hughes, 26, was taken in the third round (87th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft. He was limited to only five games (three starts) last season due to an MCL injury. He has tallied 44 tackles and four sacks in his first 36 career games with the Browns.

Andy Lee
News
The Browns have traded their seventh-round pick in 2017 to the 49ers for three-time Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee, the team announced on Saturday.

The team sent their seventh-round pick to the 49ers in order to secure Lee. In a corresponding move, the Browns released punter Spencer Lanning to make room on the roster for Lee.

“We’ve said all along that we are going to be deliberate in our pursuit to acquire talent that we feel can improve our roster,” Browns general manager Ray Farmer said. “Andy Lee has consistently been a top punter in this league. We are excited to be able to add a punter of his caliber to our team.

“We wish Spencer the best. He has done a solid job for our team and has also been an outstanding representative for our organization off the field.”

Lee has averaged at least 46.2 yards per punt in every season since 2007, peaking at 50.9 in 2011. He had served in that capacity with San Francisco for the last 11 years, but the team used a fifth-round selection in the 2015 draft to take Clemson punter Bradley Pinion, signaling the end of Lee's tenure with the 49ers.

“I'm excited about my new start and becoming a member of the Cleveland Browns,” Lee said. “I've heard so many good things about the city of Cleveland and the loyalty and passion of the fans from my former teammate Phil Dawson. I've also heard some very positive things about the type of organization and team the Browns are building so my family and I are very much looking forward to becoming a part of it.”

Austin Davis
News
Davis threw two interceptions without a touchdown while completing 24-of-46 passes for 240 yards against the Steelers on Sunday. He also rushed for 22 yards on three carries, and lost a fumble.

Davis failed to throw a touchdown while getting picked off three times in his two starts for Cleveland this season. The former Rams quarterback struggled mightily in place of Johnny Manziel (concussion) this week, and his ineptitude allowed Pittsburgh to sneak into the playoffs.

Cam Johnson
News
Colts linebacker Cam Johnson, an exclusive rights free agent, re-signed with the team for one year, reports RTV6 in Indianapolis. He suffered a season-ending triceps injury in the 2014 opener after playing in 12 games the year before.
Joel Bitonio
News
With the No. 35 pick in the NFL Draft, the Browns selected offensive lineman Joel Bitonio from Nevada.

Bitonio is 6-foot-4, 302 pounds. He was a tackle in college, but he could also play guard for the Browns if needed.

Bitonio started his last 38 games, including 26 at right tackle and 12 at left tackle. According to one stats service, since the beginning of the 2012 season, he gave up only one quarterback pressure and two sacks and was penalized only five times through a span of 2,054 snaps.

He has the chance to compete for a starting job in training camp and could play left guard for the Browns this year.

Malcolm Johnson
News
The Browns placed Johnson on injured reserve Tuesday with a groin injury.

Johnson appeared in all 12 games for the Browns this year, but his season will come to an early end due to a groin injury suffered in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Offensive lineman Darrian Miller was signed to take Johnson's place on the roster.

Jordan Poyer
News
Poyer had 11 total tackles and a stuff in Cleveland's Sunday loss to the Rams.

The third-year corner filled in for an injured Tashaun Gipson, proving his worth with five solo tackles and six assisted tackles on the day. Despite the solid performance, the reserve has yet to prove himself as a starter in the Browns' defense, meaning that he will most likely not be a strong fantasy option just yet.

Sean Baker

The Falcons have signed safety Sean Baker to the practice squad. Baker was waived from the active roster earlier in the week.

Michael Bowie
News
Browns offensive lineman Michael Bowie is not required to report to training camp until the end of July. But never mind that - he's heading out after the last Independence Day firework explodes in the sky.

Bowie is itching to get started. He missed all of last season due to a shoulder injury after starting for Seattle on its Super Bowl title team in 2013. He is seeking to stay in tip-top shape in an attempt to land a starting spot on a Cleveland line that is the strength of the team.

"It's up to them to decide who is the best five," Bowie told the team website. "All I can do is take care of my business. Hopefully I can get a shot. That's what I'm working for."

Bowie participated fully in the offseason program, working mostly with the second team at right tackle. That will likely be the spot at which he competes for a starting job. Incumbent Mitchell Schwartz has not performed particularly well there and Mike Pettine has vowed there will be competition all over the field in camp.

Corey Coleman
News
Coleman could quickly earn the Browns' No. 1 wideout position this season, Cleveland.com reports.

Coleman was the first wide receiver selected in last month's draft, addressing a glaring need on the Browns' roster as someone that projects as a future No. 1 wideout. Although coach Hue Jackson pointed out Coleman's room for improvement in his conditioning during rookie camp, the former Baylor standout is a dynamic athlete and could become a game-breaking target in Cleveland's passing game once acclimated. Early impressions from the Browns' workouts echo that sentiment, thus making Coleman an intriguing fantasy option, particularly in dynasty formats.

Cody Kessler
News
Kessler has made a good first impression on coach Hue Jackson, but it's too soon to tell where he'll stand after the Browns' upcoming quarterback competition, Cleveland.com reports.

Kessler was drafted in the third round of last month's draft and is expected to compete with fellow quarterbacks Robert Griffin and Josh McCown for pegging on the Browns' depth chart. The former USC standout reportedly impressed with his accuracy and footwork during rookie practices last week, but coach Jackson deemed it too soon to project whether can or can't win Cleveland's starting job. Rather, the Browns' upcoming OTAs and subsequent training camp is expected to sort out their competition at the position, but Kessler has helped himself by impressing in his chances thus far.

Ibraheim Campbell
News
The Browns signed fourth-round draft pick Ibraheim Campbell , a safety out of Northwestern. The deal was a reported $2.79 million salary with a $512,010 signing bonus, per Ohio.com.

That leaves Miami running back Duke Johnson , the Browns' third-round pick, as the only one of their twelve draft picks that is still unsigned.

The Jaguars have re-signed exclusive rights free agent right tackle Austin Pasztor on Tuesday, per the team's official website. Pasztor, 24, started in all eight of his appearances last season before going down with a ruptured hamstring, cutting his 2014 campaign short.
Conor Boffeli

The Texans announced Tuesday that they have waived/injured linebacker Paul Hazel and wide receiver Anthony McClung while also releasing guard Conor Boffeli.
Joe Thomas
News
Browns left tackle Joe Thomas left Monday's pratice after he had his leg rolled up on by rookie defensive lineman Danny Shelton, per Cleveland.com.

Thomas had his right knee and ankle examined on the sidelines before walking off the field and into the training room. The injury is not expected to be serious, and an MRI was ruled to be unnecessary.

"Uh, yeah, we'll know more,'' coach Mike Pettine said. "I don't think it's any serious. Yeah, normal (tests). Just getting checked.''

Emmanuel Ogbah
News
The Browns selected Ogbah in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 32nd overall.

Ogbah's athleticism might be a bit more linear than the ideal for an edge rusher, but his straight-line explosiveness and power check out quite well, and he was very productive at Oklahoma State, posting double-digit sacks each of the last two years. At 6-foot-4, 273 pounds, Ogbah did well for himself at the Combine by logging a 4.63-second 40, 35.5-inch vertical and 121-inch broad jump. He might be comparable to someone like Whitney Mercilus.

Pierre Desir

Desir is inactive Monday against the Ravens.

As a result, Justin Gilbert will draw the start at left cornerback for the Browns in place of Desir on Monday.

Derrick Kindred
News
The Browns selected Kindred in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 132nd overall.

Kindred (5-foot-10, 207 pounds) was a leading contributor on a tough TCU defense the last two years, and he tested above the average at the Combine by running a 4.50-second 40-yard dash and adding 37.5-inch vertical and 123-inch broad jumps. In a thin Cleveland safety rotation, Kindred could push for a starting role early on as a rookie.

Dan France
News
The Bengals made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

The Bengals also cut the following offensive players: tackles Dan France and Will Svitek, wide receivers Colin Lockett and Cobi Hamilton, center Trevor Robinson and running backs James Wilder and Nikita Whitlock.

Defenders waived by the Bengals include safety Danieal Manning, cornerbacks Onterio McCalebb and Victor Hampton, tackles Devon Still and David King and ends Sam Montgomery and Dontay Moch.

Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris will begin serving a two-game drug suspension handed dowsn by the league.

Marlon Moore
News
Moore, who did not play Week 17 due to a concussion, finished the season with seven catches for 81 yards and a touchdown.

Moore may have set a career mark with seven total receptions, but his main contributions to the Browns came on special teams. He was frequently active over the likes of Dwayne Bowe for that reason. Moore will return to Cleveland for his seventh professional season in 2016, where he appears in line to serve in a similar role.

Tracy Howard

Rashard Higgins
News
The Browns selected Higgins in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 172nd overall.

Higgins was one of the most productive receivers in college football history at Colorado State, but his combination of a lean frame and modest athleticism undermined his stock. Still, he's very comparable to players like Tyler Boyd and Tajae Sharpe, both of whom were selected far earlier. Higgins might be worth a later pick in dynasty rookie drafts, as he could easily turn out better than Ricardo Louis and Jordan Payton.

Rahim Moore
News
The Browns have signed Moore, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Moore, who was cut after one disappointing season with the Texans, will look to revive his career with Cleveland, where he figures to compete for time at free safety with Jordan Poyer.
