The Cleveland Browns signed defensive tackle Sheldon Day to the practice squad on Wednesday.

Day is a fifth-year veteran that has bounced around the league since being drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-1 and 293-pound Day has played in 60 games during his NFL career, and has 55 tackles, six sacks and five pass breakups.

He appeared in 22 games for the Jaguars before being waived late in the 2017 season. Day signed with the San Francisco 49ers, where he appeared in 34 games, making two starts. He also started all three of the 49ers playoff games in 2019, finishing with three tackles as San Francisco advanced to the Super Bowl.

Day signed as a free agent with the Indianapolis Colts in March of this year and described his playing style as being heavy on technique, according to colts.com:

“High motor, I love the game. I’m definitely a technician; I try to do everything right and make sure that I’m felt when I’m on the field.”

Day played in four games for the Colts after opening the season on the injured reserve list with a knee injury. He was waived on November 17 when the Colts activated defensive end Kemoko Turay from the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list.
