This news comes shortly reports surfaced the Browns signed WR Earl Bennett to a contract, so they are clearly working to add some depth ahead of training camp.
There hasn’t been any reported interest in Austin since he became a free agents months ago, but the Browns are among the most receiver-needy teams in the league, so it’s probably worth a shot bringing him into training camp.
Austin, 29, was designated a post-June 1st release, allowing the Cowboys to free up $5.5 million in space by cutting him.
Last year, Austin compiled 24 receptions for 244 yards receiving over the course of 12 games.
We had him listed as the No. 9 player in our Best Available Free Agents list.
