The Browns claimed linebacker Josh Keyes off waivers from the Chargers. The team waived linebacker Deon King in a corresponding move.

Keyes originally signed as an undrafted free agent with the Buccaneers in 2015. He played seven games for the Bucs as a rookie, and last season, Keyes saw action in four games for the Bucs and appeared in one with the Falcons.

Keyes played in two games for the Chargers this season.
