The Cleveland Browns have signed offensive lineman Andrew Wylie to their practice squad. To make room, they released offensive lineman Travis Averill from the squad.
Wylie is a 6-foot-5, 310-pound rookie lineman and former four-year starter at Eastern Michigan. He initially signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent, before eventually landing with the Indianapolis Colts for training camp and the duration of preseason. Wylie was then released during final roster cuts and signed on the Colts practice squad until his release three weeks later on Sep. 26.
Wylie started in 46 of his 47 collegiate career games, including 12 starts as a true freshman.
The Browns have been seemingly pilfering through former Colts players lately. Add Wylie to a list including defensive tackle Ty McGill, receiver Bug Howard, lineman Zach Banner, defensive lineman Jhaustin Thomas, and offensive lineman Kitt O’Brien. The team has since released both O’Brien and Thompson.
Here’s a Colts training camp clip of Wylie battling with defensive end Lavar Edwards.
