The Cleveland Browns have been keeping the transaction wire busy since the team’s Hall of Fame game victory over the New York Jets. On Friday, the Browns:

  • Waived WR Daylen Baldwin with an injury designation
  • Waived P Joseph Charlton
  • Waived CB Thomas Graham with an injury designation
  • Waived RB Nate McCrary
  • Waived OT Hunter Thedford
  • Signed LB Cam Bright
  • Signed TE Miller Forristall
  • Signed WR Jalen Wayne

With two roster spots still available, Cleveland signed CB Gavin Heslop and OT Derrick Kelly II on Saturday. Sunday came news that LB/DE Charles Wiley would be coming in for a workout with the team.

That workout must have gone well because Monday morning brought a report that Wiley was signing with the Browns:

Wiley could play both linebacker and defensive end. With DEs Alex Wright and Isaiah Thomas missing practice Sunday, Wiley can help there.

During this year’s XFL season, Wiley had six tackles and one sack in seven games. In college with the UTSA Roadrunners for two seasons and Ole Miss Rebels, Wiley had 136 tackles, 11 sacks, three fumble recoveries and two passes defended.

With Cleveland’s 90-man roster full, a corresponding move will be required by the team to sign Wiley.


The team has made the signing official while releasing WR Ra’Shaun Henry to make room for Wiley.
