Wearing orange and brown has been a part of many NFL player's stories, from Myles Garrett to Jamal Lewis to Vinny Testaverde. Whether a player was drafted by the Browns or signed a veteran contract to elongate their career in a new city, they have worn the iconic orange helmet. While some are more memorable than others, they are still a part of Cleveland’s rich football history. Here are five former Cleveland Browns players that you forgot are still playing today:

Ben Stille, DT, Arizona Cardinals 

Ben Stille signed with the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2022 out of Nebraska but was cut by the team and resigned as a member of their practice squad. Stille appeared in one game and recorded two tackles for the Dojphins before being signed to the Cleveland Browns active roster in November. Once in Cleveland, Stille totaled three tackles through six appearances.

The Arizona Cardinals claimed Stille off waivers from Cleveland in May of 2023 and added the 6’4 defensive lineman to their practice squad. Stille appeared in five games for the Cardinals in 2023, recording five total tackles and a sack. 

Mike Brown, S, Tennessee Titans

Mike Brown was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Minnesota Vikings in 2022 out of Miami (OH). The Vikings cut brown in August, signed with the Green Bay Packers in mid-September, and then was released before the end of the month. Brown was once again signed to the Vikings practice squad before being cut for a second time and was finally picked up by the Browns in October. Brown appeared in three games for Cleveland and totaled just one tackle. 

The Tennessee Titans claimed Brown from Cleveland’s practice squad in January 2023. Brown appeared in nine games for the Titans during the 2023 campaign, totaling seven tackles and a pass breakup.
