Justin Currie - Backup LinebackerHeight: 6-2 | Weight: 230 lbs | Age: 24Experience: 2 years | College: Western MichiganJustin Currie. Justin Currie. Justin Currie. I swear we had a safety on our roster last year by that name? It took a few minutes for the lightbulb to go off in my head that this is the same player, and that apparently, the team has decided to move Currie to linebacker this offseason.An ankle injury last preseason cost Currie a shot at a starting safety role, but he returned later in the year. He saw most of his action in Weeks 16-17, where he combined for 6 tackles and 1 sack. I know it was very limited time, but Currie seemed to bring a good pass-rushing presence lining up near the line of scrimmage. This is a case where Currie could win a spot if he shows some deep versatility as a linebacker/safety/key special teams player, but he’ll really need to impress in that last area to stick around due to the numbers game.Final Roster Odds: 25%Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports9. Jermaine Grace - Backup LinebackerHeight: 6-0 | Weight: 223 lbs | Age: 24Experience: 2 years | College: MiamiIn early May [url=http://www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com/jamie-collins-jersey-authentic]http://www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com/jamie-collins-jersey-authentic[/url] , the Browns decided to waive middle linebacker Dominique Alexander. Taking his spot on the roster was Jermaine Grace, an undrafted free agent in 2017 who first began the year with the Atlanta Falcons, where he appeared in 5 games. He later played in 6 games with the Colts, logging 3 special teams tackles. Grace logged an interception last preseason for Atlanta:Heading into the draft last year, Lance Zierlein of NFL.com liked his speed and athleticism, but thought his “lack of functional weight” (he was around 210 pounds at the time) would prevent teams from drafting him. He can be a decent coverage player, but his instincts to react were questioned. Grace is in camp likely to compete for a special teams job.Final Roster Odds: 5%10. Brady Sheldon - Backup LinebackerHeight: 6-5 | Weight: 220 lbs | Age: 25Experience: 1 year | College: Ferris StateWhen the Browns placed CB Howard Wilson on injured reserve in mid-June, they signed Brady Sheldon to fill the open roster spot. Sheldon was originally an undrafted free agent in 2017 who signed with the Raiders. He registered one tackle in the preseason for Oakland in 2017 [url=http://www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com/seth-devalve-jersey-authentic]http://www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com/seth-devalve-jersey-authentic[/url] , but didn’t make the team’s 53-man roster and did not sign to their practice squad until mid-November. Sheldon was activated for the final two games of the regular seasonSheldon is also a bit lean for the linebacker position, which helps explain why he ran a very fast 4.52 40-time at the Combine last year to go along with a good vertical. It will be fun to see if he gets any opportunities to rush the passer this preseason, but he is another player who is really just competing for a special teams spot.Final Roster Odds: 5%Browns reportedly work out tackle Brant Weiss The Cleveland Browns may have had the day off on Tuesday, but general manager John Dorsey stayed true to his “football guy” roots as he continues to look to add depth to the squad.The team reportedly brought in offense tackle Brant Weiss for a tryout, according to a Tweet from Howard Balzer of The Sports Xchange:Weiss was signed by the Arizona Cardinals this past spring as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo. He spent all of training camp and the preseason with the Cardinals before being released on September 1.While at Toledo, the 6-foot-6 and 297-pound Weiss was a First-team All-MAC selection in 2017 as a redshirt senior, starting 14 games at right tackle. He helped the Rockets offense rank first in the conference in total offense with 483.9 yards per game, second in passing offense (279.9 yards per game) and scoring (36.4 points per game) [url=http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/chris-hubbard-jersey]Authentic Chris Hubbard Jersey[/url] , and third in rushing offense (204 yards per game).He was also selected to the Academic All-MAC football team. All told, Weiss played 36 games in his collegiate career, making 19 starts. If anything, Weiss seems like a candidate for the practice squad.
