BEREA, OHIO – The Browns today brought back QB Pat Devlin, who will be the backup QB Sunday with Johnny Manziel not playing against the Steelers.
The team waived LB Jayson DiManche to make room for Devlin.
Devlin is 6-3, 220-pounds and officially in his third NFL season out of Delaware. Earlier this year, he signed with the Browns on Aug. 27 and appeared in the preseason finale. He completed all three of his passes for 19 yards before being waived during final roster cuts.
Originally signed by Miami as an undrafted free agent in 2011, Devlin has spent time during the regular season with the Dolphins (2011-13) and Vikings (2014). After transferring from Penn State, Devlin started 26 games for the Blue Hens and completed 506 of 776 passes for 5,696 yards with 37 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
DiManche has spent four weeks on the Browns’ active roster this season, appearing in one game.
