From the Browns- “The Cleveland Browns today signed defensive back Akeem Auguste, punter T.J. Conley, defensive lineman Nicolas Jean-Baptiste, defensive back Abdul Kanneh and linebacker Ausar Walcott, the club announced. All five players participated in the team’s minicamp this past weekend on a tryout basis. In addition, the Browns waived defensive back Kevin Barnes, wide receiver Mike Edwards, defensive lineman Paipai Falemalu, punter Jake Schum and defensive back Ricky Tunstall.” The Browns were at the roster limit of 90, so any players added would have meant dropping someone from the current roster. Kevin Barnes was signed to a one year deal this off-season after playing for the Washington Redskins and Detroit Lions. Nicolas Jean-Baptiste played his college ball at Baylor with Phil Taylor. He spent four weeks on the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad last season. A four-year letterman at Baylor University (2008-11), he appeared in 49 games with 21 starts and totaled 94 career tackles, five sacks, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble.
