Browns Release LB Tank Carder To Make Room For LB Mychal Kendricks


The Cleveland Browns officially announced that they’ve signed LB Mychal Kendricks to a contract on Tuesday and released LB Tank Carder.

Last year, Carder suffered an ACL injury that required surgery and cost him the entire 2017 season.

Carder, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bills back in 2012. He lasted just a few months in Buffalo before he was waived and later claimed off of waivers by the Browns.

Carder played out the final year of his two-year, $2.5 million contract before re-signing with the Browns this offseason.

In 2016, Carder appeared in all 16 games for the Browns and recorded five tackles and no sacks.

Kendricks, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012. He was entering the fourth year of his five-year, $29.896 million contract that included $16.4 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $5.85 million for the 2018 season when the Eagles designated him as a post-June 1 release a few weeks ago.

In 2017, Kendricks appeared in 15 games for the Eagles and recorded 77 tackles, two sacks and six pass defenses for the Eagles.
