Joseph, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Raiders back in 2016. He finished his four-year, $11.88 million contract and was testing the open market when he signed a one-year contract with the Browns this past April.
He landed on the team’s COVID-19 list last week as a close contact designation.
In 2020, Joseph has appeared in 13 games and recorded 60 total tackles, two tackles for loss, one interception, four pass defenses, and two fumble recoveries.
