The Browns added another tight end who can play power forward, signing Rico Gathers on Sunday.
He will open the season serving a one-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He was arrested Aug. 31 in Texas for marijuana possession and pleaded guilty in March to a misdemeanor charge.
The Browns waived tight end/fullback Orson Charles to make room on the 90-man roster.
Gathers (6-foot-6, 281 pounds) played basketball at Baylor.
No. 2 tight end Demetrius Harris (6-7, 230) played basketball at Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Gathers was a sixth-round pick of the Cowboys in 2016 and has appeared in 15 regular-season games with four starts. He has three catches for 45 yards.
Charles started two of 13 games last year as the Browns’ No. 1 fullback. He had three catches for 23 yards and no rushes.
The Browns signed fullback Joe Kerridge on Saturday.
