Browns Claim P Justin Vogel, Waive QB Joel Stave


Adam Schefter reports that the Browns have claimed punter Justin Vogel off waivers from the Packers on Monday.

The Browns have already confirmed the news and announced that they’ve waived QB Joel Stave.

Vogel, 24, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Miami last year. He’s in the second year of his three-year, $1.66 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $555,000 and $645,000 over the final two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Vogel appeared in all 16 games for the Packers and totaled 2,991 yards on 71 attempts (42.12 YPA) to go along with two touchbacks.

Stave, 25, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin back in May of last year. He was, unfortunately, waived at the start of the regular season before signing on to the Vikings’ practice squad.

Stave had brief stints with the Seahawks, Chiefs and Redskins before the Jets added him to their practice squad last December. New York elected to bring Stave back on a futures contract this past January before cutting him loose a few weeks ago.

The Browns recently signed Stave to a contract.

During his four-year college career, Stave threw for 7,635 yards while completing 59.5 percent of his passes to go along with 48 touchdowns and 37 interceptions.
