Browns: A.J. Green III returns to the practice squad after going unclaimed

While he initially made the initial 53-man roster, the Cleveland Browns then waived cornerback A.J. Green III after claiming another cornerback in Kahlef Hailassie off of waivers. Now, Green III has cleared waivers after his release and has returned to the Browns to fill their last practice squad slot.

Initially joining the Browns as an undrafted free agent after the 2020 NFL draft out of Oklahoma State, Green III made the active roster for the first three years of his career. However, after the team signed special teams ace Mike Ford Jr. and drafted another cornerback in Cameron Mitchell this past offseason, Green III was phased off the roster.

A member of the Browns, Green III has spot-started for the team as their cornerback room continues to deal with ongoing injuries. In case of an injury in the cornerback room, Green III will be the first players signed back to the active roster off of the practice squad.
