The Cleveland Browns made a few minor roster moves on Tuesday as the club signed tight end Jordan Franks and offensive tackle Timon Parris to the practice squad.
To accommodate the moves, the team released tight end Kyle Markway from the practice squad. A second move was not required as the Dallas Cowboys are signing quarterback Garrett Gilbert from Cleveland’s practice squad in the wake of quarterback Dak Prescott’s season-ending ankle injury.
The 6-foot-4 and 246-pound Franks originally entered the league with the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent in 2018 out of Central Florida. He played in six games for the Bengals in 2018, catching two passes for 37 yards.
Franks was on Cincinnati’s practice squad for the 2019 season and was waived this year during the final roster cutdown in September. He then had a quick stop on practice squad of the Philadelphia Eagles, but was released a few weeks ago.
The 6-foot-6 and 315-pound Parris originally entered the league with Washington as an undrafted free agent in 2018 out of Stony Brook. He played in one game with Washington in 2018 and three games in 2019, but was released this year during the final roster cuts in September.
Parris was briefly on the practice squad of the Atlanta Falcons after being released by Washington, but was waived a few weeks ago.
