Browns roster: 3 moves leave roster spot available before Week 18

Could Dalvin Cook or another vet be incoming for the Browns playoff run?

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The ever-busy Cleveland Browns and GM Andrew Berry continue their process. Late last week, after clinching a playoff spot on Thursday Night Football, the Browns signed QB Jeff Driskel off the Arizona Cardinals practice squad. To make room, the team released DE Sam Kamara from the active roster.

Tuesday, after all the Week 17 games had ended, Cleveland brought back Kamara, this time to the practice squad. The Browns released punter Matt Haack and OL Joey Fisher from the practice squad along with adding Kamara.

Haack’s release signals that punter Corey Bojorquez will be ready to punt in Week 18 but Berry only needed to release one player to make room for Kamara. Why two?

News earlier today that RB Dalvin Cook was being waived, followed by these roster moves, has many wondering if Cleveland is opening a spot for Cook.

Over the last few seasons, veterans joining teams during the season have often joined the practice squad first. Browns starting QB Joe Flacco is a prime example of that.

The New York Jets also released OL Rodger Saffold on Tuesday. Cook and Saffold join a few interesting veteran free agents that could fill the open spot including players like:

  • WR Jarvis Landry
  • DT Matt Ioannidis
  • DE Justin Houston
  • DE Carlos Dunlap
  • TE Zach Ertz

If Cook clears waivers (if Cleveland claims him he would go on the active roster), the Browns could sign him on Thursday.

Who do you think Cleveland should sign to fill their practice squad opening?
