36. Orson Charles: Listed as a tight end, but logged over 165 snaps at fullback. Had his season cut short to injury and was was placed on the IR Dec. 13.

Caught three passes for 23 yards on five targets. According to this story from, Charles is a hype man and teammate.

Charles signed with the Browns on July 30 after a year coming and going on the Kansas City Chiefs’ practice squad.

37. Damion Ratley: Ratley saw his most action between Weeks 6-9. He had a six-catch, 82-yard performance during the Browns blowout loss to the Chargers at home Oct. 14.

At the time, the Browns receiving corps was banged up and seventh-round pick was thrust into duty.

His snaps waned following Freddie Kitchens accession to offensive coordinator, which also coincided with the return of Rashard Higgins to the receiving corps.

Ratley has 13 catches for 144 yards on the year.

38. Charley Hughlett: Cleveland’s special teams has 99 problems, but fortunately, long snapping isn’t one.

39. E.J. Gaines: Was favored by some to win the second starting corner job opposite of Denzel Ward. He didn’t, but still added depth in the secondary until he got hurt.

Went on the IR following Cleveland’s Week 8 loss to the Chiefs after incurring his second concussion in three weeks. Was credited with 13 tackles and he also had an interception.

40. Greg Joseph: Was better than Zane Gonzalez, but still proved unreliable. He should be given the chance to compete for the job in 2019, but the Browns and GM John Dorsey need to try and do better at the poison.
