Browns Sign DTs Joey Ivie & Tanzel Smart To PS, Cut Two


The Cleveland Browns announced Friday that they’ve signed DT Joey Ivie and DT Tanzel Smart to their practice squad and released T Brady Aiello and RB Benny LeMay from the unit. 

Here’s the Browns updated practice squad:

  1. DB Elijah Benton
  2. WR Ja’Marcus Bradley
  3. T Michael Dunn
  4. QB Garrett Gilbert
  5. DB A.J. Green
  6. RB Dontrell Hilliard
  7. DB Robert Jackson
  8. DB Montrel Meander
  9. DB Jovante Moffatt
  10. K Cody Parkey
  11. RB Johnny Stanton
  12. WR Taywan Taylor
  13. T Greg Senat
  14. RB John Kelly
  15. DT Joey Ivie
  16. DT Tanzel Smart

Ivie, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2017. He was waived at the start of the regular season and later signed to the Falcons’ practice squad.

Atlanta brought Ivie back on a futures contract in 2018 before waiving him with an injury settlement. After a brief stint with the Seahawks, he joined the Chiefs and returned to Kansas City on a futures contract last year. 

Ivie was on and off of the Chiefs’ active roster last season before signing on to the Titans’ practice squad. He was cut loose last week. 

In 2019, Ivie has appeared in eight games for the Chiefs and Titans while recording two tackles and no sacks.
