The Cleveland Browns are signing OL Zach Sterup to their practice squad on Monday, according to his agent Brett Tessler.
The Browns’ practice squad now consists of:
- CB Trey Caldwell
- LB Scooby Wright
- WR Josh Boyce
- C Anthony Fabiano
- WR Jordan Leslie
- RB Terrence Magee
- DT Gabe Wright
- DB Darius Hillary
- TE Connor Hamlett
- OL Zach Sterup
Sterup, 24, wound up going undrafted out of Nebraska back in May but received an invite to participate in the Chiefs’ rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. The Chiefs later signed him to a three-year, $1.62 million contract.
Unfortunately, the Chiefs waived him coming out of the preseason and he was on and off of their practice squad before the Jets signed him to a contract a few weeks ago. New York cut him loose on Tuesday.
It’s worth mentioning that Sterup was suspended in August for the first four games for violating the policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Sterup started 17 games for Nebraska during his college career.
