Akron lineman Jake Anderson signed a nondrafted free agent contract with the Browns this week.
Anderson played tackle four years for the Zips. He was a steadying force on the line.
Undrafted free agents often have slim chances to make NFL rosters, but perhaps Anderson, as a member of a team that was infrequently scouted, has a better chance to impress the coaches than most.
The Browns had a big hole at right tackle, but they addressed it with second-round pick Mitchell Schwartz.
