Browns Live Blog

5:20 PM: The Browns have officially signed 15 players to the practice squad - including one fan favorite whose original release created a lot of anxiety among the fan base. Check out our full story here.

2:53 PM: It looks like Mond is not returning with PJ Walker on his way instead:

Walker was the starter in Carolina at one point.

2:00 PM: After three seasons in Cleveland, the Browns are reportedly releasing cornerback A.J. Green:

1:54 PM: The Browns will possibly see a familiar face in Week 1 as running back Demetric Felton Jr. is reportedly joining the practice squad of the Cincinnati Bengals:

1:06 PM: Despite a reunion being possible, York is not returning to Cleveland:

1:05 PM: An interesting practice squad guy given where he was drafted at least:

12:44 PM: The Browns have claimed DB Kahlef Hailassie off waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs. None of the Browns’ cuts were claimed by other teams, meaning they are free to sign to practice squads. Here are all the waiver claims that were made:

12:42 PM: I know instincts take over for fans and they often think that every camp star will definitely be claimed by another team, but per Brad Stainbrook, the Browns are indeed getting WR Austin Watkins on their practice squad:

12:15 PM: Some pretty big news that a few key names are likely to return to the practice squad including Austin Watkins and, potentially, Cade York:

12:08 PM: Pretty much confirming what everyone drew conclusions about, Mary Kay Cabot reports that the Browns will re-sign OG Michael Dunn and DT Maurice Hurst, and then place DE Alex Wright and LB Jordan Kunaszyk on IR, which would allow them to be activated from IR when they are healthy.

12:04 PM: We have our first reported practice squad signing in WR Jaelon Darden:

Wonder if this impacts Austin Watkins?

11:30 AM: If I had to make a prediction, my guess (Chris Pokorny) would be that the Browns are not going to submit any waiver claims today. They may already be holding a couple of roster spots for DT Maurice Hurst and OL Michael Dunn, so they’d have to dig deeper for other moves. If they did, it could still come at the expense of youngsters like S Ronnie Hickman or LB Mohamoud Diabate.

11:05 AM: We should start hearing more practice squad news at noon. One move that we talked about the other day is that the Browns would like to add K Cade York back to the practice squad if another team doesn’t claim him:

Beyond that, the biggest name who fans will be keeping an eye on is WR Austin Watkins.
