Practice squad candidates No. 2 and 3: Nakia Griffin Stewart, Miller Forristall

The Browns are most likely either going to sign a released veteran tight end or make a waiver claim on one. As of now, they have only two tight ends on their roster, David Njoku and Harrison Bryant. Unless there has been a massive shift in offensive philosophy, it’s highly unlikely that the team moves forward with only Njoku and Bryant on their gameday roster.

But there is a scenario where the Browns just put two tight ends on their practice squad and utilize the revised call-up rules to maximize roster flexibility. The rule states that teams are allowed to elevate a practice squad player to the active gameday roster two times before that player would need to be subjected to waivers.

If Cleveland decides to go that route until a tight end earns a permanent spot on the roster, both Nakia Griffin-Stewart and Miller Forristall should be practice squad targets.

Both NGS and Forristall are adequate pass catchers, but neither made their case for making the team undeniable. The next 24 hours could change the makeup of how many tight ends the Browns look to get on their practice squad. But in any case, expect either Griffin-Stewart or Forristall to be part of the 16-man squad.
