Browns Claim Tyvis Powell

The Browns announced they have claimed defensive back Tyvis Powell off waivers from the Seahawks. Powell, an Ohio native, is entering his second season out of Ohio State. Tyvis Powell (vertical)

The 6’2″, 211 pound athlete joined Seattle as an undrafted free agent last year. After that, Powell spent the entire regular season on the Seahawks’ active roster and made cameos in eight games. He didn’t see a ton of action, but he did notch three special-teams tackles. The Browns saw more film on him during his Ohio State days, when he appeared in 42 games and let the team in interceptions during his final season there.

Powell may or may not stick with the Browns roster, but he now has the distinction of being the first player claimed off of waivers in the 2017 offseason system.

    The world spins off its axis after the Browns sign two OSU players within a year… So not used to the Browns signing or drafting Buckeyes. Something I would expect the Steelers to do instead.

    We need safety help, so this helps. I bet he makes the team, considering the amount of secondary position dead weight that needs to be jettisoned.
