The Cleveland Browns announced Saturday that they’ve elevated S Elijah Benton to their active roster.
Benton wound up going undrafted out of Liberty back in April. He later signed a three-year, $2.28 million contract with the Browns.
However, Cleveland later waived Benton coming out of training camp. He was re-signed to their practice squad after clearing waivers.
During his college career at Liberty, Benton recorded 161 tackles, one sack, a forced fumble, two interceptions and nine passes defended over the course of two seasons and 23 games.
