The Browns have swapped a quarterback for a special teamer. Cleveland claimed punter Justin Vogel off waivers from the Packers today. To make room on the roster, the team has waived quarterback Joel Stave.
After selecting J.K. Scott during last week’s draft, the Packers waived Vogel on Friday. The 24-year-old joined the organization last season as an undrafted free agent out of Miami, and he proceeded to appear in all 16 games. He finished the campaign averaging 44.4 yards per attempt, with a net average of 41 yards. He also landed 19 of his 71 punts inside of the 20-yard line. Cleveland is seemingly setting up a punter competition, as the team is also rostering Britton Colquitt.
Stave, a former standout at Wisconsin, has bounced around the league since going undrafted in 2016. He’s had brief stints with the Vikings, Seahawks, Chiefs, Redskins, Jets, and Browns. Cleveland is now rostering three signal-callers in Tyrod Taylor, Baker Mayfield, and Drew Stanton.
