Cleveland Browns Reportedly Signing NT Nick Jean-Baptiste

Paul Frederiksen-US PRESSWIRE

After signing RB Robbie Rouse as a tryout player on Saturday, it looks like the team might be ready to sign another one of their 20 tryout players to the roster: NT Nick Jean-Baptiste. Jean-Baptiste reported the news on his Twitter feed Sunday afternoon:

A few hours later, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal cautioned that the signing of Jean-Baptiste does not sound official yet, even if it does end up happening soon:

This is an interesting signing because the 6-1, 335-pounder played for Baylor, meaning he was formerly a teammate of the Browns' Phil Taylor. Jean-Baptiste isn't a rookie either. He was an undrafted free agent in 2012 who spent time in training camp with the Baltimore Ravens before later landing on the practice squad of the Indianapolis Colts. Taylor was quick to welcome Jean-Baptiste to the team:

The Browns do have a lot of depth on the defensive line, but Jean-Baptiste could challenge Ishmaa'ily Kitchen for the backup nose tackle position in camp.
