The Cleveland Browns on Wednesday signed DB De’Ante (pronounced dee-AHN-tay) Saunders to the active roster from the practice squad. In addition, the team placed TE Rob Housler on injured reserve (hamstring).
Saunders is 5-9, 187-pounds and in his rookie season out of Tennessee State. He signed with the Browns as an undrafted free agent in May and spent the first eight weeks of the season on the club’s practice squad.
This will change balance of power in AFC North. #Browns put TE Rob Housler on I.R. (hamstring), activate DB De’Ante Saunders from P. squad.
