The Browns waived backup cornerback Julian Posey, the team announced today.
The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Posey vacillated between the Browns’ practice squad and active roster last season, his first in Cleveland.
He appeared in five games and started the season finale because the defense opened the game in the nickel package. He finished the season with six tackles, including one sack.
Posey is the younger brother of former Ohio State wide receiver DeVier Posey, a member of the Houston Texans. The younger Posey entered the NFL by signing with the New York Jets in 2011 as an undrafted free agent from Ohio University. He appeared in two games with the Miami Dolphins in 2012.
Although Posey didn’t play much for the Browns, he uttered one of the most memorable quotes of the 2013 season while comparing himself to Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden.
“My style’s different,” Posey said. “It’s kind of like Kung Fu. He’s praying mantis. I may be crouching tiger.”
