Browns sign OL Greg Robinson, former No. 2 pick by Rams
CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have signed offensive lineman Greg Robinson, a 2014 first-round draft pick with the Rams.
The 6-foot-5, 330-pound Robinson was the No. 2 overall pick that year out of Auburn. Robinson failed to live up to expectations with Los Angeles and was traded to Detroit before last season for a sixth-round pick.
Robinson started six games for the Lions before suffering a season-ending ankle injury.
He’s getting another chance with the Browns, who are looking to replace 10-time Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas and need to add depth up front. Thomas retired during the offseason.
To make roster space, the Browns waived offensive lineman Rod Johnson, a fifth-round pick in 2017 who missed his rookie season with a knee injury.
