Browns sign ex-hoops player, Dallas TE Gathers

The Cleveland Browns on Sunday signed tight end Rico Gathers, who had been waived by the Dallas Cowboys last week.

The Browns waived tight end Orson Charles on Sunday in a corresponding move.

Gathers, a former Baylor basketball player, was drafted in the sixth round of the 2016 draft by the Cowboys but his status on the roster became more tenuous when 11-time Pro Bowler Jason Witten came out of retirement after a year in broadcasting. Gathers also missed time at training camp with an ankle injury.
