Browns sign seven players, waive seven others

Josh Cooper AP

The Browns turned over a small part of their roster on Monday, signing seven players and waiving seven others.

Of the seven signees, two have previous NFL experience: wide receiver Anthony Armstrong, whose addition PFT reported earlier Monday; and first-year running back Jourdan Brooks, who was on the Bengals’ practice squad for 10 weeks in 2012.

The Browns also added five undrafted rookies: Abilene Christian wide receiver Taylor Gabriel, Towson offensive lineman Randall Harris, Florida State defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel, Arizona State defensive lineman Robert Nelson and Towson tight end James Oboh.

The signings of Harris and Oboh gives the Browns three rookies from Towson. Tailback Terrance West, the star of the 2013 Towson club that made it to the FCS title game, was one of the Browns’ third-round selections earlier in May.

Armstrong, Brooks and the five rookie signees all tried out for the Browns at the club’s weekend minicamp.

In corresponding roster moves, the Browns waived running back Jamaine Cook, wide receiver Josh Cooper, offensive lineman Anthony Dima, wide receiver Tori Gurley, defensive lineman Elhadji Ndiaye, offensive lineman Michael Philipp, fullback Chris Pressley and tight end Andre Smith. Cooper had the most extensive experience with Cleveland, catching 17 passes for 166 yards in 11 regular season games over two seasons (2012-2013).

    The Browns are putting together a nice little team there.

    Camp bodies, hope for a diamond in the rough.

    Disappointed about WR Cooper but, hopefully, these are all improvements.

    In Ray we trust!

    Wide receiver Taylor Gabriel could make the team as a punt returner and backup slot receiver. Really explosive guy with sharp cutting ability: a very similar athlete to Andrew Hawkins.

    Randall Harris could make the team as a backup guard. Very athletic with nice balance and flexibility for blocking on the move. Nice zone blocking scheme fit. Paved the way for Terrance West and Towson’s rampage through the FCS last year.

    This big build-up will make wk 1 that much more disappointing, when a 45-o drubbing sends browns fans back to reality.

    But I gotta admit, this is the first cle-pit game I’ve been looking forward to in a long time. Your team seems to have a little zip in their step this year.

    The Browns waived 7 nobodies and signed 7 others to replace them. Ray Farmer blew millions on aging retread FAs, screwed the draft up, and signed the worst UDFA class in the NFL. Yep, putting together a “nice little team” there.

    Should have kept Cooper. He caught everything that came his way. He was just never givin enough play time.

    This means nothing

    Nothing. Meaningless.

    cutting fullback Chris Pressley is a little confusing. we just signed him a month ago to be the starting Fullback on the team. Once again we have no fullback on the roster. Running team with no fullback here we go again.

  13. Chris Henry's Wild Ride says: May 20, 2014 9:22 AM

    Wait….didn’t they just sign Chris Pressley?

  14. kwjsb says: May 20, 2014 4:18 PM

    Since we cut Pressley, is Vontae Leach on th eradar?

    Since when is Towson a hotbed for NFL prospects?
