Cleveland, 23, originally signed on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Miami (FL) back in May of last year. He spent a good majority of last year on the team’s practice squad.
The Patriots traded for him in August, but he was unfortunately unable to make the team’s 53-man roster coming out of the preseason. New England later promoted him close to a month ago be was waived this past weekend.
This season, Cleveland has appeared in four games and recorded a single reception for one yard receiving and no touchdowns for the Patriots.
