The Cleveland Browns announced that they have released CB Phillip Gaines from their injured reserve with an injury settlement.
The Browns also signed CB Donnie Lewis to their practice squad and cut OT Paul Adams to make room for him.
Scott Petrak notes that Gaines was dealing with a concussion.
Gaines, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,824,112 contract and made a base salary of $700,000 before signing on with the Bills in 2018.
The Browns acquired Gaines in mid-2018 after claiming him off of waivers from the Buffalo Bills. Cleveland re-signed him to a one-year contract back in March.
In 2018, Gaines appeared in 11 games, seven for the Bills and four for the Browns, and recorded 39 tackles, no interceptions and two pass defenses.
