The Cleveland Browns signed Casey Dunn and waived Jovahn Fair
The Cleveland Browns are still making moves along the interior of their offensive line, but it’s not the splashy one we thought was coming late in the week. After reports surfaced they were meeting with Ronald Leary, there was an expectation the veteran right guard would be added.
To date, that hasn’t happened but they did make a move as they signed center Casey Dunn and waived guard Jovahn Fair to make room for their newest addition.
Dunn started his collegiate career at Jacksonville State before transferring to Auburn. As a rookie in 2018, he played in two games for Washington but then spent all of 2019 on the New Orleans Saints practice squad.
Right now, the Browns have J.C. Tretter at center and rookie Nick Harris should be the primary backup — with a chance to be the starter of the future. Even with those two locked in, Cleveland is still searching for depth, and Tretter’s nagging knee issues could also be part of the reason they brought in Dunn — who could be a huge help with the work at camp.
Fair, a hometown kid trying to make it to the Browns after going undrafted out of Temple, was the casualty in this one and his tenure in Berea was short-lived. Fair was added less than a week ago when Cleveland lost several offensive linemen who opted out due to COVID-19 concerns.
An Akron native, he was originally signed by the Kansas City Chiefs following the draft but didn’t stick around there for long either.
