The Cleveland Browns announced the addition of seven players to their practice squad in a press release on Monday morning.
One of the names, WR Jasper Collins from Mount Union, was previously reported by the media on Sunday. An undrafted free agent by the Dolphins, he then cleared waivers in early August before being signed by the Browns this Labor Day weekend.
Here are the remaining six names for the practice squad, which can include up to eight players total:
DB Kip Edwards, 5-10, 190, Missouri — An athletic two-year starter at cornerback for the Tigers, he was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Buffalo Bills. They then released him on Saturday as they made their final 53-man roster cuts.
DB Darius Eubanks, 6-2, 222, Georgia Southern — Minnesota released this undrafted rookie free safety over the weekend as well. Eubanks was a four-year letterwinner and was third on the team in tackles this past season.
DB Terrence Frederick, 5-10, 190, Texas A&M — Released by the Steelers before the 2012 season after being a seventh-round pick, he spent the past year with the Giants. He’s labeled as a potential slot corner.
WR Tori Gurley, 6-4, 230, South Carolina — The big Gurley was with the Browns in training camp this season. This is his sixth different practice squad since 2011, most notably with the Green Bay Packers.
DB Julian Posey, 5-10, 190, Ohio — Posey is also a practice squad veteran with the Jets and Dolphins. He appeared in two regular season games for Miami last season. His younger brother is former Buckeye receiver DeVier Posey, now with the Texans.
DB Jamoris Slaughter, 6-0, 195, Notre Dame — The most familiar name of the bunch, Slaughter was the Browns’ sixth-round pick before being surprisingly cut. He’s a safety who missed 2012 with a torn Achilles.
Obviously, more moves are likely on the horizon with the team still in need of a kicker. But it’s settling to see that the Browns aimed to add practice squad depth are two of their weakest positions: wide receiver and secondary.
