White Genard Avery Jersey , Part 3 Three more linebackers are on the Browns’ roster as we head into training camp, so let’s see what their chances are of making an impression.Photo by Jason Miller/Getty Images8. Justin Currie - Backup LinebackerHeight: 6-2 | Weight: 230 lbs | Age: 24Experience: 2 years | College: Western MichiganJustin Currie. Justin Currie. Justin Currie. I swear we had a safety on our roster last year by that name? It took a few minutes for the lightbulb to go off in my head that this is the same player, and that apparently, the team has decided to move Currie to linebacker this offseason.An ankle injury last preseason cost Currie a shot at a starting safety role, but he returned later in the year. He saw most of his action in Weeks 16-17, where he combined for 6 tackles and 1 sack. I know it was very limited time, but Currie seemed to bring a good pass-rushing presence lining up near the line of scrimmage. This is a case where Currie could win a spot if he shows some deep versatility as a linebacker/safety/key special teams player Youth David Njoku Jersey , but he’ll really need to impress in that last area to stick around due to the numbers game.Final Roster Odds: 25%Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports9. Jermaine Grace - Backup LinebackerHeight: 6-0 | Weight: 223 lbs | Age: 24Experience: 2 years | College: MiamiIn early May, the Browns decided to waive middle linebacker Dominique Alexander. Taking his spot on the roster was Jermaine Grace, an undrafted free agent in 2017 who first began the year with the Atlanta Falcons, where he appeared in 5 games. He later played in 6 games with the Colts, logging 3 special teams tackles. Grace logged an interception last preseason for Atlanta:Heading into the draft last year, Lance Zierlein of NFL.com liked his speed and athleticism, but thought his “lack of functional weight” (he was around 210 pounds at the time) would prevent teams from drafting him. He can be a decent coverage player http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-christian-kirksey-jersey , but his instincts to react were questioned. Grace is in camp likely to compete for a special teams job.Final Roster Odds: 5%10. Brady Sheldon - Backup LinebackerHeight: 6-5 | Weight: 220 lbs | Age: 25Experience: 1 year | College: Ferris StateWhen the Browns placed CB Howard Wilson on injured reserve in mid-June, they signed Brady Sheldon to fill the open roster spot. Sheldon was originally an undrafted free agent in 2017 who signed with the Raiders. He registered one tackle in the preseason for Oakland in 2017, but didn’t make the team’s 53-man roster and did not sign to their practice squad until mid-November. Sheldon was activated for the final two games of the regular seasonSheldon is also a bit lean for the linebacker position, which helps explain why he ran a very fast 4.52 40-time at the Combine last year to go along with a good vertical. It will be fun to see if he gets any opportunities to rush the passer this preseason, but he is another player who is really just competing for a special teams spot.Final Roster Odds: 5%Cleveland Browns Training Camp 2018: TE Preview, Part 2 In Part 3 of our training camp preview on the Cleveland Browns’ wide receivers, we look at the four receivers who seem assured of significant roles in the offense this year.John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports4. Devon Cajuste - Backup Tight EndHeight: 6-4 | Weight: 242 lbs | Age: 25Experience: 1 year | College: StanfordDevon Cajuste was an undrafted free agent in 2016 who signed with the San Francisco 49ers. He was featured prominently at Stanford in a receiver role White Chris Hubbard Jersey , catching 91 passes for 1,596 yards and 14 touchdowns. After not making the 49ers’ roster out of training camp, he spent his entire rookie season on Green Bay’s practice squad. He was placed on injured reserve at the end of that year with something that left him on crutches. It’s unclear what the injury was, but Green Bay did give him a workout during the season last year to check on his condition.When Cajuste was a draft prospect, here is what Lance Zierlein of NFL.com said about him: There is always a chance that Todd Haley could prefer to have four tight ends as opposed to a fullback, so Cajuste isn’t fighting for nothing in this year’s camp even though three tight ends are firmly ahead of him.Final Roster Odds: <5%Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports5. Julian Allen - Undrafted Free Agent Tight EndHeight: 6-3 | Weight: 245 lbs | Age: 24Experience: Rookie | College: Southern MississippiDuring rookie minicamp in May, the Browns had 28 players in for a tryout. Only 2 of those players were signed by the club Youth Myles Garrett Jersey , with Julian Allen being one of them.Allen played college most recently at Southern Mississippi, where he logged 22 catches for 298 yards over the past two years. He was graded as the 35th-ranked tight end by Dane Brugler of NFL Draft Scout. Before the draft, Allen was asked to compare himself to a tight end in the NFL, and he picked Jordan Reed:Allen can be more of a receiving threat than his stats would indicate; he played in a college system that didn’t utilize the position in that capacity very much.
