Quarterback Thaddeus Lewis, who was somewhat of a surprise cut by the St. Louis Rams on Saturday, has found a new home with the Cleveland Browns.

The Browns were awarded Lewis, who had a strong preseason, along with linebacker Quinton Spears and defensive lineman Emmanuel Stephens. Spears was waived by the Dolphins, Stephens by the Falcons.

To make room on the 53-man roster, the Browns waived defensive lineman Auston English and linebacker Benjamin Jacobs, and terminated the contract of defensive lineman Derreck Robinson.

Cleveland also added six players to its practice squad on Sunday, signing offensive linemen Dominic Alford and Jarrod Shaw, fullback Tyler Clutts, running back Quinn Porter, defensive lineman Brian Sanford and wide receiver Rod Windsor. All those players had been in camp with the Browns this summer.
