The Cleveland Browns are likely to continue to turn over the bottom of their roster. GM Ray Farmer did a lot since taking over the team and is expected to do so until his 4 game suspension for "Text-gate" kicks in in Week 1. Today the Browns announced that they have cut CB Micah Pellerin and signed OL Erle Ladson.
Here is the team's release:
BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns on Tuesday signed OL Erle (pronounced EARL) Ladson. General Manager Ray Farmer made the announcement.
In addition, the club waived DB Micah Pellerin.
Ladson is 6-6, 350-pounds and officially in his first NFL season out of Delaware. Originally signed by the Raiders as undrafted free agent in 2014, Ladson also played in the Arena Football League. A native of New York City, he graduated from Cardinal Hayes High School.
Pellerin signed with the Browns this offseason after appearing in three games with the Cowboys in 2014.
The Browns roster is currently at 89 players.
With the Browns losing OL Tyler Loos to retirement, after being an undrafted free agent this year. Ladson will likely be a camp body with low probability of making the team. Ladson played college at Delaware, the same school that brought us Joe Flacco. The 6'6" Ladson stands out in the crowd but is raw and limited.
Pellerin was active for 5 games in 2013 but didn't play at all last season. With the amazing depth in the secondary, the Browns have less need for Pellerin and filling the hole left by Loos more important.
The Browns still have one roster spot available, expect them to fill that before Training Camp opens.
