Browns Worked Out Three Safeties Including Ed Reynolds

According to Howard Balzer, the Browns brought in three free agent safeties including Justin Currie, Jacob Hagen, and Ed Reynolds for workouts on Friday.

Reynolds, 25, is a former fifth-round pick by the Eagles in the 2014 NFL Draft. He bounced on and off Philadelphia’s practice squad before being signed by the Browns to their practice squad in September of 2016.

Cleveland eventually promoted him to their active roster, but later decided to waive him with an injury designation. The Browns would release Reynolds from injured reserve with an injury settlement less than a week later.

In 2016, Reynolds appeared in 10 games for the Browns and recorded 43 total tackles, one sack, and one pass defense.

Currie, 23, signed on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Western Michigan back in 2015. However, the Giants waived him with an injury designation and spent his entire rookie season on the injury reserve list.

After the Giants once again cut Currie loose at the start of the 2016 season, the Browns signed him to their practice squad. Currie returned to Cleveland on a future/reserve contract but was waived with an injury designation at the start of the season.

Currie has yet to appear in an NFL game.

During his college career at Western Michigan, Currie recorded 340 tackles, nine sacks, five interceptions, three forced fumbles and 15 pass defenses.
