Gustin has played in 22 career games with three starts, all with the Browns. He's posted 41 tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery. Gustin will wear No. 94. 

Mills is a 6-1, 184-pound rookie who was signed by the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina Central. He previously spent six weeks on the Browns' practice squad earlier this season. Mills is a native of Palmdale, Calif.
