Browns promote Eubanks to active roster; waive Magee

The Browns made a roster move today, promoting linebacker Darius Eubanks from the practice squad to the active roster. A four-year starter at Georgia Southern, Eubanks has been on the team’s practice squad since the start of the season after spending the preseason with the Vikings. He started at both safety and linebacker in his college days, earning first-team all-conference honors in 2012. He is 6’2″ and 215 pounds.

To make room on the roster, the team cut linebacker Brandon Magee. He played in the team’s first six games, recording three tackles on special teams. Magee was an undrafted rookie out of Arizona State that the team claimed off waivers from Dallas after the Cowboys signed him as a priority undrafted free agent and gave him $70k. Magee was listed as probable for Sunday’s game after an oblique injury had him limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Eubanks will likely look to contribute on special teams. The team will still be without outside linebacker Quentin Groves this week against Kansas City in all likelihood as he is listed as doubtful.
