Cleveland Browns Practice Squad: Browns Lose Out on Geathers

Cleveland Browns DL Brian Sanford made the practice squad.

The Cleveland Browns announced six of eight players who will be on the practice squad, per a tweet by the OBR. Currently, the players reported to be on the practice squad are:

  • OG Pat Murray
  • OG Paul Fanaika
  • DL Brian Sanford
  • DL Travis Ivey
  • DB DeAngelo Smith
  • DB Larry Asante

What happened to DE Clifton Geathers? Well, reports indicate that the Miami Dolphins claimed him off waivers, meaning he will be on their 53-man roster. Another thing to note is that the Browns did not put Coye Francies on the practice squad. While it's not a "crushing loss" or anything of that nature, I still wanted the team to give him a shot.

With two spots open on the practice squad, they will either sign someone from a different team who was waived, or they might be reserving a spot for another player they will waive (i.e. maybe a Titus Brown). Project player Joel Reinders is not on the practice squad.

You can definitely say goodbye to Brandon McDonald for good now, since he signed with the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals are doing their best job to assemble a roster full of former Browns. Their roster includes:

  • QB Derek Anderson
  • RB Jason Wright
  • OG Rex Hadnot
  • CB Brandon McDonald
  • S Hamza Abdullah
