Though the Cleveland Browns players had an off day on Monday, August 9, the coaching staff was still hard at work.
They reportedly invited six players in for workouts.

1. Dylan Coe
Dylan Coe is a free agent inside linebacker.
He was an UDFA out of Missouri State in 2017.
Coe played for the Texans from 2017-2020.
2. Johnathon Johnson
Wide receiver Johnathon Johnson is an 2020 UDFA out of Missouri who signed with the WFT in 2020.
He was waived before the season began and never found an NFL home last season.
3. Chad Kelly
Quarterback Chad Kelly is the nephew of NFL legend Jim Kelly.
The Ole Miss product spent his first two seasons with the Broncos and two seasons with the Colts.
He is 27 years old and has only taken one NFL snap in 2018 while with the Broncos.
Off-the-field legal issues have hampered his opportunity to make and stay with an NFL team.

5. T.J. Morrison
Morrison is a defensive back out of Stony Brook University.
The UDFA was signed by the Las Vegas Raiders in the spring but released in June.
6. Jordan Ta’amu
Ta’amu is also a quarterback.
He was an UDFA in 2019 out of Ole Miss.
Ta’amu was on the practice squad for both the Kansas City Chiefs and the Detroit Lions in 2020.
It is likely that the Browns are trying out these players for practice squad positions.
None of the six has any significant NFL experience.
Chad Kelly is the only player who was drafted, and he was a seventh-round pick (253rd overall).
