We should know soon who the team is signing to replace him, but the most obvious position of need that comes to mind would be defensive end, which could include the likes of Tyrone Holmes, Karter Schult, or Cam Johnson as an extra insurance policy due to the ankle injury Myles Garrett suffered on Wednesday.
Overall, the Browns are still relatively thin at backup offensive tackle, but they claimed Zach Banner off waivers earlier in the week to add some depth to the position.
