Former UDFA has bounced around the league since 2018.

The Cleveland Browns signed linebacker Tegray Scales on Wednesday.

The team had an open roster spot after releasing cornerback Robert Jackson on Tuesday.

The 6-foot and 227-pound Scales has played in just four regular-season games since being signed as an undrafted free agent in 2018 by the Los Angeles Rams. He has bounced around the league since then, spending time with the Indianapolis Colts, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It was with the Steelers that he played the final four games of the 2020 season, playing three snaps on defense and 37 on special teams.

Pittsburgh released Scales on August 14 to open up a roster spot after acquiring former Cleveland linebacker Joe Schobert from the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Even with the Browns dealing with injuries at the linebacker position, Scales’ time with the team will likely be a short one unless he can manage to make a major impact on special teams between now and the August 31 roster cutdown.
