Browns Finish Off Practice Squad With Benard and Hilliard

The Cleveland Browns had two spots left on their practice squad and filled them both on Tuesday, signing LB Marcus Benard and LT Corey Hilliard. Both players were initially on the team's 53-man roster before being waived for other players. Had the New England Patriots not claimed DB Bret Lockett Monday, chances are that he would've been on the Browns practice squad instead of Hilliard.

This seems like a rarity, but every member of the Browns practice squad is someone who was in training camp with the team. Usually, you see at least two or three players make the practice squad from other teams.
