The Cleveland Browns are 7-3 and just a half-game back of the top record in the AFC. With injuries continuing, instead of looking to add younger players who could develop, GM Andrew Berry has pivoted to veteran players this week to help out for injured players.
First, Berry added QB Joe Flacco in free agency to replace Deshaun Watson. Flacco could replicate some of what Jacoby Brissett did last year for Cleveland.
Then, on Wednesday, the Browns brought in veteran safety Duron Harmon to the practice squad to help replace Rodney McLeod who was lost for the year. A few other options out there that could be added as well.
Harmon is in his 11th season in the league with seven of them coming with the New England Patriots. The former third-round pick has 23 interceptions in his career.
In 2023, Harmon played in three games with the Chicago Bears including one start.
Cleveland also designated LB Jordan Kunaszyk for return from injured reserve this week. Kunaszyk could be activated back to the roster over the next three weeks and help provide some depth at the position and on special teams.
