Browns sign veteran LB Malcolm Smith

Cleveland adds a veteran linebacker to the room after the injury to Mack Wilson.

Oakland Raiders v Cleveland Browns

Last Thursday, it was reported that veteran linebacker Malcolm Smith would be working out with the Cleveland Browns. On Sunday, the team announced that they’ve sign him to the roster. To make room for him, the team waived/injured C Casey Dunn (foot).

Smith was originally a 7th round pick with the Seattle Seahawks in the 2011 NFL Draft. The crowning achievement of his career will always be the fact that he was the MVP of Super Bowl XLVIII. Smith was with the Seahawks from 2011-2014. Since then, he’s played with the Oakland Raiders (2015-2016), San Francisco 49ers (2017-2018), and then split last year with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Dallas Cowboys.

I don’t expect Smith to be any kind of answer at the linebacker position, but with or without the injury to Mack Wilson, the team needed a little more experience at the linebacker position. Smith provides that experience for now.
