Man literally tried to walk onto Browns' roster

The Cleveland Browns had a walk-on at practice this week.

A former high school player walked onto the practice field in hopes of getting a tryout, according to the Associated Press.

According to the team, the man was escorted off the field without incident.

The man told team officials he just wanted to show what he could do.

NFL teams generally don't hold open tryouts, and do offer the NFL regional combines as a chance for NFL hopefuls to get their foot in the door.
