Ravens Sign Former Browns Starting D-Lineman to Practice Squad


The Ravens added former full-time Browns starting defensive lineman, and former Raven, Trevon Coley to their practice squad Tuesday.

Coley originally made the Browns' 53-man roster but was released a day later when Cleveland claimed three players off waivers.

The 6-foot-1, 340-pound Florida Atlantic product originally signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2016. He didn't make the team, and spent most of his first season out of football (brief stint with the Redskins) before landing in Cleveland in 2017.

Coley became an instant starter for the Browns and has started 29 games the past two seasons, totaling 80 tackles and 2.5 sacks.

He landed on the roster bubble this offseason after the Browns signed veteran defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson. Cleveland also has up-and-coming defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi.

Baltimore released undrafted rookie offensive tackle Marcus Applefield from the practice squad to make room for Coley. The Ravens kept fewer defensive linemen than usual (five) on the 53-man roster this year, but now have Coley and Zach Sieler on the practice squad.
