Browns Practice Squad, Plus Waiver Pickups

Everyone in the Browns media is reporting it so we’ll go with Nate Ulrich who had the most descriptive tweets. Ulrich reports the following players are on the Browns’ practice squad.

Linebackers Solomon Elimimian and Ben Jacobs
DT Ronnie Cameron
C Garth Gerhard
G Jarrod Shaw
T Jeff Shugarts
WR Josh Cooper
FB Brad Smelley

That’s eight, so that’s it. No Adonis Thomas and I haven’t seen his name pop up yet for anyone else either.

In addition, the Browns have been awarded Lineback Tank Carder from Buffalo and Defensive Tackle Ishmaa’ily Kitchen from Baltimore.

Carder is a former member of TCU. Kitchen is a 334 pound monster from Kent State.

I believe this means the Browns will have two more cuts forthcoming as the waiver pickups aren’t eligible for the practice squad. I think they have to make the 53-man roster. So, we’ll keep you updated as details come out.

    If you can’t stand the heat….

    They waived (or waived/injured) Scott Paxson and Brian Sanford to get to the number.

  • Ish Kitchen is a nice pickup. Guy was a defensive captain and a great player on a dominant defensive line for Kent State. He was also Coach Hazell’s favorite and as stated on here, a complete mountain of a man.
