The Browns announced they have waived DT Eli Ankou and TE Pharoah Brown. Cleveland also signed 14 players to the practice squad.
The full list includes:
- QB Garrett Gilbert
- RB Dontrell Hilliard
- RB Benny LeMay
- FB Johnny Stanton
- WR Ja’Marcus Bradley
- WR Taywan Taylor
- OT Brady Aiello
- G Michael Dunn
- LB Montrel Meander
- CB A.J. Green
- CB Robert Jackson
- S Elijah Benton

- K Cody Parkey
Parkey, 28, originally signed on with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Auburn back in May of 2014. However, he was traded to the Eagles after a few months in exchange for RB David Fluellen.
Parkey had brief stints with the Eagles, Browns and Dolphins before signing a four-year, $15 million contract that included $9 million guaranteed with the Bears in 2018. Chicago designated Parkey as a post-June 1 cut last offseason following his infamous missed field goal in the 2018 playoffs.
Parkey signed with the Titans in 2019 but was released after just a few games.
In 2019, Parkey appeared in three games for the Titans and made all three of his field goal attempts and was 5-6 on extra points.
Gilbert, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Rams. However, he was waived at the start of the 2014 season and later signed to the Rams’ practice squad.
Gilbert had brief stints with the Patriots, Lions and Raiders before signing on to the Panthers practice squad in 2017. He was on and off of the unit throughout 2018.
From there, Gilbert signed on with the Orlando Apollos of the AAF before joining the Browns in April.
In 2019, Gilbert threw for 2,152 yards while completing 60.6 percent of his passes to go along with 13 touchdowns and three interceptions. He also rushed for 79 yards and a touchdown.
