Browns News: CB Phillip Gaines, S Jermaine Whitehead Claimed on Waivers

The Cleveland Browns made a pair of additions to their secondary Wednesday, claiming former Bills cornerback Phillip Gaines and former Packers safety Jermaine Whitehead off waivers.

The Browns waived defensive back Denzel Rice in a corresponding move to keep their roster at 53.

Buffalo cut Gaines on Tuesday amid a frustrating stretch that saw him commit three pass interference penalties in four games. He started six games and recorded 30 tackles for the Bills after coming over in free agency.

The Packers released Whitehead after he was ejected from Sunday's game against the New England Patriots for slapping offensive lineman David Andrews.
