Defensive end Takk McKinley, a first-round draft pick of the Falcons in 2017, has finally found a new NFL home.

Via Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, McKinley will make the initial 53-man roster in Cleveland.

The Browns signed McKinley before adding Jadeveon Clowney. Still, the Browns seem to be intent on having a deep rotation on their defensive line.

McKinley is listed by the Browns as the second-string left defensive end, behind Myles Garrett.

Waived by the Falcons last November, McKinley failed physicals with the Bengals and 49ers before landing with the Raiders.

He has 17.5 sacks in 49 career games. If he’s on the field with Garrett or Clowney, McKinley could see some favorable matchups and add to this stats.

  1. This Cleveland Browns defense is shaping up nicely…if strong safety Grant Delpit and cornerback Greedy Williams can stay healthy and produce,this will be a tough stingy defense from front to back.

  2. Remember him on draft night,posse,all wearing same costumes,bling on his shoes… knew he was a BUST!!!

  3. Only thing he in known for it cursing on stage during his draft interview, while holding a picture of his grandma
