The Browns are working out six players, including two quarterbacks.

Aaron Wilson of Sports Talk 790 reports Chad Kelly and Jordan Ta'amu will work out for the Browns along with linebacker Dylan Coe, receiver Johnathan Johnson, receiver Darvin Kidsy and defensive back T.J. Morrison.

Kelly, the nephew of Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, had a tryout with the Bills in January and the Packers in May. The Colts cut him from their practice squad last September after he spent 2019 and the 2020 offseason with them.

The Broncos made Kelly a seventh-round choice in 2017. They waived him in 2018 following his arrest for first-degree criminal trespassing. The NFL suspended him for the first two games of the 2019 season over the incident.

The Chiefs cut Ta’amu in May. He also has spent time with the Raiders, Texans and Lions since going undrafted in 2019. He played for the St. Louis Battlehawks in the XFL.

  1. Kelly has all the right attributes on the field. IF he’s matured off the field as many of us hoped and expected, he’s definitely worth kicking the tires. The talent is there.

  2. Kelly can play but so can the other dude he was decent in the XFL be nice to see Kelly get a shot in the preseason

  3. His father is arguably the greatest quarterback ever to not win a Superbowl. That doesn’t always translate but this kid can play. He just needs to get his act together off the field. The Browns now have the right leadership in place now to be able to take these small risks on.

  4. Chad Kelly is a hall of famer as long as he plays against other teams 3rd stringers as he was consistently Colts fans favorite pre-season hero. Has never translated vs real defenses though and has maturity issues on top of that. Neither guy have the ability to de-throne Case Keenum as king of the clipboard in Cleveland, especially vs AFC North defenses. Colts probably should have traded with the Browns for Keenum to be their starter in hindsight instead of fragile Carson Wentz, at least you know he’s reliable.
