[url=]Customized Cleveland Browns Jerseys[/url] , Part 3 Three more linebackers are on the Browns’ roster as we head into training camp, so let’s see what their chances are of making an impression.Photo by Jason Miller/Getty Images8. 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 [url=][/url] , 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, 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 [url=]Cleveland Browns T-Shirt[/url] , Lance Zierlein of 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, 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 [url=]Cleveland Browns Hats[/url] , but he is another player who is really just competing for a special teams spot.Final Roster Odds: 5%Browns LB Mychael Kendricks facing trouble over insider trading Chalk up another storyline for Hard Knocks to keep the cameras rolling for.On Wednesday, news broke that Cleveland Browns LB Mychael Kendricks is under investigation and cooperating in a federal investigation over insider trading he was involved in. Here is the statement released by Kendricks:The Browns announced that Kendricks will not make the trip to Detroit for the team’s final preseason game. NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy says the league is aware of today’s developments [with Kendricks] and will review the matter.Pro Football Talk wonders if Kendricks’ NFL career could be over.There are conflicting reports on whether the Browns knew about Kendricks’ issues upon signing him this offseason. Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network has a source that says the Browns had no idea about it. However, Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports is saying the complete opposite with his source:If there is one person who can advise Kendricks on federal investigations, though...Photo by Jason Miller/Getty Images
