Cleveland Browns Release Wide Receiver & Defensive Tackle

The Cleveland Browns have released second-year defensive tackle Ben Stille, as confirmed by multiple reports.

Stille, who previously played for both the Miami Dolphins and the Browns during his rookie season in 2022, appeared in six games for Cleveland, starting in one of them.

The 25-year-old contributed three tackles and one quarterback hit during his time on the field. In his sole game with the Dolphins, Stille recorded two tackles.

Standing at an imposing 6-foot-5 and weighing 295 pounds, Stille entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent from Nebraska.

However, it seems that the Browns have decided to part ways with him, potentially due to the strong competition within their defensive tackle group.

Marquez Stevenson, a wide receiver and kick returner, has also been released by the Browns.

After recovering from a foot injury sustained while playing for the Buffalo Bills, Stevenson joined the Cleveland Browns' practice squad in December.

The Browns showed faith in his potential by signing him to a reserve/future contract in January. However, the recent development, as reported by Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram, reveals that the Browns have waived Stevenson.

Despite not seeing playing time in Cleveland, Stevenson's special teams prowess and skills make him an enticing player.

Now, he embarks on the search for a new opportunity as he aims to secure a spot on an NFL team before the start of training camp this summer.
