The Cleveland Browns have signed OL Mason Gentry and WR Daniel Williams to the practice squad. The moves follow OL Kyle Kalis’ elevation to the club’s active roster, while DL Daniel Ekuale has been placed on the team’s reserve/suspended by commissioner list.
Gentry (6-6, 300), a rookie out of Southern Methodist, was originally signed by the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent in May. He spent this offseason and training camp with the team before being waived during final roster cuts. Gentry appeared in 45 career games with 30 starts at Southern Methodist and is a native of Plano, Texas.
Williams (6-3, 200), a first-year player, was originally signed by the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent in 2017 and spent part of last season on the Jets’ practice squad. He was signed by the Washington Redskins in August and was waived before the start of the regular season. Williams is a product of East St. Louis, Il. and attended Jackson State.
Ekuale was signed by the Browns as an undrafted free agent in the spring and spent training camp with the team. He was added to the club’s practice squad following final roster cuts, which he was a member of for the entire regular season. Ekuale has been suspended without pay for four games for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances. He will begin serving his suspension immediately.
