The Cleveland Browns announced Monday that they’ve signed eight players to futures contracts for the 2020 season.
The full list includes:
- DT Brandin Bryant
- LB Jermaine Grace
- CB Donnie Lewis Jr.
- LB Montrel Meander
- WR J’Mon Moore
- G Malcolm Pridgeon
- G Willie Wright
- DE Trevon Young
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Bryant, 26, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic back in 2016r. However, he was later among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.
The Jets signed Bryant to their practice squad during the season before eventually waiving him with a settlement. He’s been on and off of the Browns’ practice squad since then.
In 2019, Bryant appeared in four games for the Browns and recorded three tackles and no sacks.
Moore, 24, is a former fourth-round pick by the Packers in the 2018 NFL Draft out of Missouri. He was set to enter the second year of his four-year, $2.9 million rookie contract when Green Bay cut him loose during final roster cuts this year.
It took until November for Moore to sign on to the Browns’ practice squad.
In 2018, Moore appeared in 12 games for the Packers and recorded two receptions for 15 yards receiving (7.5 YPC) and no touchdowns.
