The Cleveland Browns continued the churn at the bottom of their roster on Sunday with the signing of center John Yarbrough.

To make room for Yarbrough, the team waived center Lo Falemaka - who had just signed with the team on Monday - with an injury designation.

The 6-foot-4 and 302-pound Yarbrough is an undrafted free agent from Richmond, where he made 28 starts in 39 career games with the Spiders. He earned a starting job near the end of his sophomore season and went on to start 11 games at center as a junior. Last season he was once again a full-time starter, but moved around the line as he saw time at center, right guard and right tackle.

That versatility helped Yarbrough earn the Touchdown Club of Virginia’s Offensive Lineman of the Year award and he was also selected Second Team All-Colonial Athletic Association, according to The Collegian. Yarbrough played in the FCS National Bowl where he was selected the most valuable offensive lineman.

Yarbrough participated in the Chicago Bears rookie mini-camp earlier this spring.
