The Cleveland Browns announced that they’ve promoted LB Deon King to their active roster on Wednesday.
King, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Norfolk State back in May. He was unfortunately waived coming out of the preseason but was later signed to their practice squad a day later.
The Colts claimed King off of waivers from the Chargers last November before waiving him just a few days after this year’s NFL draft. The Browns signed him to a contract this summer, but waived him coming out of the preseason and eventually adding him to their practice squad.
King has been on and off of the Browns’ practice squad this season.
In 2017, King has appeared in four games for the Browns and recorded one tackle.
