The Browns signed Switzer to a one-year deal Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Switzer linked with Cleveland's practice squad back in October, and he'll remain with the team to begin the offseason. He played a depth role with the Steelers from 2018-19.
The Browns activated Switzer (undisclosed) from the practice squad/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Switzer will now be eligible to rejoin teammates at the Browns' facilities. If any of Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge are unable to come off the COVID-19 list Week 17, it's possible that Switzer could be called up to the active roster.
The Browns placed Switzer on the practice squad COVID-19 list Thursday. Switzer either tested positive for the virus or came into close contact with an infected person. He'll be required to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to the Browns' scout team.
The Browns restored Switzer (undisclosed) from the practice squad injured list Tuesday. Switzer was placed on the list in early November. The Browns currently have three wide receivers on injured reserve, and KhaDarel Hodge (hamstring) is questionable heading into Week 14, so Switzer could be in line for a promotion before the season ends.
The Browns placed Switzer (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list. Switzer had been signed as insurance when the Browns experienced a spate of injuries at wideout.
