Natson is also Cleveland’s primary kick returner. Expect the team to place him on injured reserve in the coming days. 

Natson, 26, originally signed on with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Akron back in 2017. He lasted just a few months in Indianapolis before being waived at the start of the season.

Natson later signed on to the Jets’ practice squad before the Rams signed him in 2018. Natson returned to Los Angeles on an exclusive rights contract last year but was placed on injured reserve in December. 

Natson signed a one-year deal with the Browns this offseason. 

In 2020, Natson appeared in two games for the Browns and had no receptions. He recorded 14 punt return yards.
