Browns were blocked from adding defensive line help they needed by another team

After Mo Hurst went down for the season, another capable defensive tackle nearly fell in the lap of the Cleveland Browns.

Browns were blocked from adding defensive line help they needed by another team

Cleveland put in a waiver claim for DT Teair Tart after he was released by the Tennessee Titans. Due to how the waiver order works, Tart was awarded to the Houston Texans.

Since the waiver order goes off of team record, Tart wouldn’t have made it to the Browns even if Houston did not claim. The Bengals were another team that was interested in the services of Tart.

Hurst is out for the season with a pectoral injury, so the Browns are currently down a player in the middle. Not just any player either because Hurst was playing at a very high level this season.

In 11 games with nine starts, Tart has recorded 21 tackles (8 TFL) and a sack. Tart is in his fourth year and has started 36 of the 45 games he has played in.

At 6-foot-2 and 304 pounds, Tart brings you that prototypical size that you want in the middle of the defensive line.

Cleveland will have to rely on Shelby Harris more, which isn’t a bad thing. Siaki Ika is also seeing his first bit of NFL action. Sometimes things just don’t work out in the NFL and this was one.
