Browns re-sign TE/FB Orson Charles

The Browns re-signed tight end/fullback Orson Charles on Wednesday.

The versatile blocker is also a valuable special teamer who plays with an edge. He had been an unrestricted free agent after the Browns didn’t tender him last month as a restricted free agent.

Charles appeared in 13 games with two starts last year, his first with the Browns. He missed the last three games with an ankle injury.

He had three catches for 23 yards and blocked for running back Nick Chubb, who set a team rookie record with 996 rushing yards.


Charles, 28, was a fourth-round pick of the Bengals in 2012 and has appeared in 49 career games. He has 14 catches for 185 yards.
