Browns claim Miguel Maysonet, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

After being released by the Philadelphia Eagles, the undrafted free agent was quickly scooped up by the Cleveland Browns.

The Cleveland Browns have claimed undrafted free agent Miguel Maysonet off waivers on Tuesday after he was let go by the Philadelphia Eagles, according to Adam Caplan of PhiladelphiaEagles.com. The running back is expected to compete for a reserve role with Cleveland.

Earlier this offseason, Maysonet appeared as though he might win the No. 3 running back job with Philadelphia. Although the Eagles gave him a $10,000 signing bonus (the most for any undrafted running back), he was waived. ESPN New York reported that the Eagles front office wanted Maysonet, but head coach Chip Kelly did not.

Maysonet, who starred for Stony Brook in the FCS, rushed for more than 1,900 yards last season. He could not participate in OTAs because his class had not yet graduated.

He'll face plenty of competition in Cleveland, as the team has Trent Richardson, Montario Hardesty, Dion Lewis, Chris Ogbonnaya and Brandon Jackson. Richardson rushed for 950 yards as a rookie last season.
