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.
If you knew half my story you would understand why I will never take playing this beautiful game for granted.
I’m extremely excited to get back to work with my boys and play in front of the best fans in the league. Now, let the grind begin! pic.twitter.com/hAjMi7QCUZ
