According to Brad Stainbrook, the Browns are signing DE Chris Odom to a contract on Friday. 

Chris Odom

Odom was recently named the USFL’s defensive player of the year following its 2022 season. 

The Browns brought him in for a workout earlier this week and are clearly impressed enough to quickly get a deal done. 

Odom, 27, originally signed on with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas State in 2017. It was his first opportunity with an NFL team.

The Falcons waived him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit. The Packers claimed him off of waivers for the 2017 season, then waived him before the start of the 2018 season. 

Odom returned to the Falcons before joining the Commanders’ practice squad. He was eventually promoted to the active roster in Washington for the 2019 season. He most recently worked out for the New Orleans Saints.

For his NFL career, Odom has appeared in 11 games for the Packers and Commanders and recorded 13 tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble.

In 2021, Odom led the USFL with 12.5 sacks and recorded four blocked kicks, six forced fumbles, and eight tackles for a loss.
