The Cleveland Browns have signed RB Jamaine Cook, the team announced Sunday morning.

BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns on Sunday re-signed free agent Jamaine Cookicon-article-link.gif, the club announced. In addition, the team waived defensive back Kenronte Walker.

Cook, a 5-9, 210-pound running back is in his rookie season out of Youngstown State, originally signed with the Browns as an undrafted free agent on April 30. He was waived May 21.

Cook finished second in Youngstown State history with 4,052 career rushing yards, while adding 39 touchdowns on 811 attempts. He totaled more than 1,200 rushing yards and at least 11 rushing scores in each of his three seasons as a starter.

A native of Middleburg Heights, Ohio, he graduated from Midpark High School.

Some nice moves, should be a good change of pace back. I think he's comparable to Dion Lewis, let's hope so.

Well, he is a resign... so he's been cut once already.

 

Looked slow to my eye and sure enough his measurables aren't great (4.7-ish 40 time)

But agree that his cuts, balance look good... also seems to set up blocks nicely.

He'll get a ton of carries in the fourth preseason game while the guys that made the team are rested.

 

Maybe they will see what he can do as a kickoff returner too.

I agree. He will get almost all the carries in the 4th game.

Good point Zombo.

 

 

Also, possibly the team is thinking Lewis might be better off on IR and are bringing back a guy who might fill a role catching passes out of the backfield. He clearly doesn't have the quicks Lewis has and won't break many, but maybe he is sure handed and can gain the 6-7 yards you want on a swing pass to the flats.

They cut him and picked up Maysonet on 5/21

 

It looks like those two will be fighting for a temporary roster spot until Hardesty gets back. Unless Chud and Norv can get a guy familiar with their system who gets cut from another squad.
