Rookie defensive lineman Travis Ivey will start carrying the pads for a new group of veteran teammates.
The Cleveland Browns announced today that they have been awarded defensive lineman Travis Ivey off waivers from the Miami Dolphins.
Ivey drew some attention early this month when he wore the shoulder pads of several veteran Dolphins to make light of the common rookie hazing ritual, which generated more attention than usual this offseason when Cowboys rookie Dez Bryant declined to carry Roy Williams’ pads.
Now Ivey can start offering to carry pads in Cleveland.
The 6-foot-4, 325-pound Ivey is an undrafted free agent out of Maryland.
