Browns Sign OL Alex Parsons, K Jake Rogers Heading Into Minicamp

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

On the same day that they waived S Jamrois Slaughter, the Cleveland Browns added a pair of veteran players to their roster: OL Alex Parsons and K Jake Rogers. Here is a brief biography on each of them:

  • OL Alex Parsons - 6-4, 301 lbs. - After having attended USC for college, Parsons went undrafted in 2010, but was signed by the Oakland Raiders. He spent two years on the Raiders' practice squad before making the final roster in 2012. He spent the entire season on the 53-man roster and ended up making one start, filling in at center. Parsons is listed as an offensive lineman, but for now, it sounds like he could be competing for a spot as the backup center.

  • K/P Jake Rogers - 6-2, 220 lbs. - Two birds, one stone. The Browns did not have a backup kicker or backup punter on the roster to give Billy Cundiff and Spencer Lanning some rest, and now they have one guy who can back up both of them.

    Rogers was an undrafted free agent out of the University of Cincinnati in 2011. Over the past couple of years, he's been with the New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Washington Redskins, but has not seen action during the regular season. The Browns listed him as a kicker/punter upon signing him, and he's done both in the preseason.

These two signings put the Browns at 89 players, so expect one more player to be added by Tuesday. It is unclear if that final player will be OLB Edgar Jones, who the team worked out on Monday.
