BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns have signed WR Ja'Marcus Bradley to the active roster from the practice squad. Additionally, S Tedric Thompson has been activated from the exempt list.
Bradley, 6-1, 198 pounds, is an undrafted rookie out of Louisiana-Lafayette and has been a member of the team's practice squad since Week 1 of this season. At Louisiana-Lafayette, Bradley saw action in 52 career games, catching 160 passes for 2,359 yards (fourth-most in Louisiana-Lafayette history) and 23 touchdowns (second in program annals). He also returned 24 kickoffs for 474 yards. A native of Ackerman, Miss., Bradley will wear No. 84.

New this season, a club can carry up to 55 players on its roster during a given week by elevating one or two players from its practice squad. The rule allows teams a larger pool from which to select their 47 or 48 game-day active players. Any player elevated from the practice squad for this purpose will immediately revert to his team's practice squad the day following the game.
