Originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017, he spent all of last season on the Chiefs' injured reserve list and was waived by the team during training camp this year. Lampkin totaled 111 tackles, five interceptions, 12 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery at Oklahoma State. He's a native of Oklahoma City, Okla.

Charles, a third-year player, saw action in all 13 games (two starts) with the Browns this season. He recorded three receptions for 23 yards and added five tackles on special teams.
