The Cleveland Browns have made an addition to their wide receiver room. 

Cleveland has signed Derrick Dillon after waiving Isaiah Weston with an injury settlement. Weston got hurt during practice on Saturday.

Dillon most recently spent time on the New York Giants practice squad from 2020-21.

Before Dillon was in the NFL, he helped LSU win a National Championship during his senior season (2019). He recorded 15 receptions for 202 yards and two touchdowns in eight games. 

He spent five seasons in Baton Rouge and finished with 51 receptions for 634 yards and four touchdowns. 

Dillon also got to play for the Tampa Bay Bandits of the USFL when the league had its inaugural season earlier this year. 

We'll see if he can carve out a spot on the active roster these next few weeks.
