The Cleveland Browns made two roster additions, the team announced on Friday. The most notable of the two is defensive tackle Zaycoven Henderson, whom the team hosted for a pre-draft visit in April. They also signed receiver Blake Jackson, who played quarterback in college for the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.

Henderson is an undrafted rookie out of Texas A&M. He was a reported signing by the Browns in the days following the draft, but that amounted to a false start; his appearance on the roster is now officially-official. In four seasons with the Aggies, he totaled 111 tackles, 21.5 tackles for a loss and 8.5 sacks and appeared in 45 games.

He also comes with some baggage by way of an arrest for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and marijuana possession last December. Though ultimately not charged, he was not allowed to participate in the A&M pro day and was a likely reason he did not see his name called in the draft.

Jackson, the former quarterback, signed with the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders in April, before being released in early June.
