The Browns signed defensive back Marcus Cromartie to the practice squad, the team announced Wednesday.



The 6-foot, 195-pound Cromartie is in his first NFL season out of Wisconsin.



Cromartie signed with the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2013 and spent the first 15 weeks of his rookie season on their practice squad. He was elevated to the active roster for the final two games but was inactive.



He is a cousin of Arizona Cardinals cornerback Antonio Cromartie and New York Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
