The Cleveland Browns have signed offensive lineman Geoff Gray to the club’s active roster.
Gray went unselected in the NFL draft this past April, but quickly joined the Green Bay Packers as a priority free agent. Gray later became a member of the New York Jets’ practice roster following training camp, a spot he held until the Browns came calling.
Cleveland is 0-13 and, just days after firing general manager Sashi Brown, has every reason to be acquiring young talent.
Gray, a product of the University of Manitoba, was selected eighth overall by his hometown Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the 2017 CFL draft.
Cleveland’s offensive line coach is Bob Wylie, the man who held the same role with Winnipeg from 2014 to 2016. Considering the Bombers and Bisons share many football amenities at Investors Group Field, it’s unlikely that this connection is a coincidence.
