Browns Release OT Desmond Harrison

The Browns have waived tackle Desmond Harrison, according to a team announcement. Harrison joined the Browns as an undrafted free agent last year and went on to start eight games at left tackle, so his release comes as a surprise. 

Harrison was released because he was late and even missing appointments with the team, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter) hears. And, when addressing reporters, head coach Freddie Kitchens explained that Harrison missed the start of the team’s mandatory minicamp on Tuesday. Given his talent and inexpensive contract, there’s a high probability of Harrison being claimed off waivers in the next 24 hours.

Harrison, 25, opened the 2018 season as the starter at left tackle before Greg Robinson took over in the second half of the season. This year, Harrison was expected to be a key sub, but the 6’6″ lineman will try to make it work elsewhere. Meanwhile, the Browns will likely turn to Kendall Lamm as their first tackle off of the bench.

    Go sign him Texans! They need all the help they can get for that o-line

    Hope he’s ok, from the looks of that picture he seems to be getting attacked by a very large spider…

    The upside is tantalizing, but he’s a major project. Fran Fraschilla would say he’s two years away from being two years away.

    This is a hasty move. He knew the offensive scheme. It’s not like there are starting left tackles standing around.

      I see one standing in the unemployment line. Oh wait, never mind. It’s just Harrison.

    Apparently Harrison’s talents don’t include being able to understand what those numbers on a watch mean, so how will he even know when those 24 hours have passed?
