The Cleveland Browns officially signed nine players to futures contracts for the 2019 season on Tuesday.
The full list of futures signings includes:
- DT Daniel Ekuale
- C Kyle Friend
- DB Robert Jackson
- DT Devaroe Lawrence
- RB Davante Mays
- CB Lenzy Pipkins
- DB Tigie Sankoh
- OT Brad Seaton
- WR Daniel Williams
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Pipkins, 24, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State back in 2017. The Packers traded him to the Colts for LB Antonio Morrison during the preseason and he was on and off of their roster before eventually being claimed by the Lions.
Pipkins would later sign on to the Browns’ practice squad in November shortly after being waived by Detroit.
In 2018, Pipkins appeared in three games and recorded 10 tackles and no interceptions.
