3. Kyle Kalis, Guard/Center
If this name sounds familiar to the Cleveland Browns, it’s because it should. A former undrafted free agent out of Michigan in 2017, Kyle Kalis started out with Washington and then joined the Indianapolis Colts in October of his rookie season.
He actually started two games that year for the Colts but was later waived — with an injury designation. Kalis was then claimed by Washington, starting his second stint with the first team to give him a shot in the NFL.
Even with two chances, he still never made their roster though, and was waived again the following season. That’s when the Browns came in as they picked him up a couple of days later, adding Kalis to their practice squad. Eventually, he did make it to their active roster as he played three games in 2018.
Kalis then gained traction as a player in the right guard battle during their 2019 training camp but again suffered an injury and was waived. He spent the majority of the season on the Oakland Raiders practice squad but was let go in May of 2020.
The son of a former NFL offensive lineman, Kalis is a local kid from Lakewood and was openly excited about his opportunity last year to make his mark on the team. With more openings now on the line, it could be worth giving him one more shot.
