Browns Worked Out Eight Free Agents


According to Howard Balzer, the Cleveland Browns brought in eight free agents for workouts on Monday.

The full list of tryouts for the Browns includes:

  1. K Greg Joseph
  2. K Cairo Santos
  3. K Giorgio Tavecchio
  4. K Blair Walsh
  5. WR Bennie Fowler
  6. WR Dontrelle Inman
  7. WR Rod Streater
  8. LB Azeem Victor

Of this group, the Browns signed Joseph and Streater to contracts.

Fowler, 27, wound up signing on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State in May of 2014. He wasn’t able to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season, but later wound up on their practice squad and returned on a future/reserve contract.

The Broncos brought Fowler back on one-year exclusive rights deals each of the past two years. However, Denver declined to tender him a contract as a restricted free agent this offseason and he later signed on with the Bears. Chicago, unfortunately, released him coming out of the preseason.

The Patriots signed Fowler to a contract last week only to cut him loose a few days later.

In 2017, Fowler appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos and caught 29 passes for 350 yards receiving and three touchdowns.

Santos, 26, wound up signing on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Tulane back in 2014. He returned to the Chiefs this past March on a one-year restricted deal worth $1.797 million.

Kansas City elected to place him on injured reserve with a groin strain at the start of the season and cut him loose with a settlement soon after. The Bears later signed him to a contract before placing him on injured reserve for the second time during the 2017 season.

The Jets signed Santos to a contract this past March, but was released during the preseason.

In 2017, Santos appeared in five games and converted four of his five field goal attempts along with 14 of 14 extra point tries.

Walsh, 28, is a former sixth-round pick of the Vikings back in 2012. He’s was in the second year of his five-year, $13.66 million contract and set to make a base salary of $1.15 million for the 2016 season when the Vikings cut him loose during the 2016 season.

Walsh later signed a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the Seahawks last year.

In 2017, Walsh appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks and converted 21 of 29 field goal attempts (72.4 percent) to go along with 37 of 38 extra point tries (97.4).

Why haven’t they signed Dan Bailey, one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history?

In fact, why hasn’t any team?

Dumb Browns…
